Is life getting in the way of your investments?

Do you find yourself losing interest in the market or is life getting in the way of trading? Keep reading to find the coaches’ top secrets to never missing big opportunities.


1) Keep a positive attitude.

One of the easiest ways to miss out on opportunities is believing they don’t exist or will never come to you. 

You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.
Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.
— Zig Ziglar

Just like a photograph, whatever you focus on (in your thoughts) is the picture that will develop. Not liking the picture that you’re seeing right now in your life? Try changing the input that goes in. Find something that inspires you (an audio book, a speaker, a quiet morning outside, a jog through your neighborhood/park, etc.) and do it every day. Who doesn’t like feeling inspired?


2) Find an accountability partner.

Call/text/email someone who loves you and who you trust (and preferably also trades, but it’s ok if they don’t). Discuss your goals and ideas out loud with that person. You will be amazed at what you will hold yourself to if someone else just knows about your goals.


3) Go on a treasure hunt.

Imagine you have a map leading you toward untold riches that would mean you don’t ever have to worry about money again. What would you do? Wait until life slows down so you have time? Wait until someone else finds the treasure to prove that it’s real? Complain about the heat outside?

Maybe you didn’t catch the part about “untold riches”.

As a stock trader, you know there is treasure out there. You have a map (trading system) and a support team at NVOWS to help you get there. So make a plan, prepare for the journey, and take the next step to go find your treasure.


4) Make 1 new goal in any area of your life. 

We don’t grow unless we are challenged. That’s why I made a goal to work out at least twice per week. Have I hit that goal every week?

…Do you have your Christmas shopping done by July every year?

If you’re like me, I’m guessing those gifts aren’t completely finalized till December 24th at 11:59 pm—but I’ll tell you that because I made a goal, I have worked out more and felt much healthier. It took some intentionality to find an area of my life I wanted to improve and even more self-discipline to make it happen, but the benefits of health and self-respect are well worth it.
