If you recently joined the TRADEway family, you’re about to try something new, exciting, and downright scary at times. Let’s face it; even though you have a system for trading, you still get a rush of emotion when it comes to trading in the U.S. Stock Market.

We collected them from a few of the TRADEway leaders and team members and wanted to share them with you for your encouragement.

If you read all these verses, you might see a common theme. Most of them have more to do with mindsetand spiritual walk than anything else. Remember when we told you that stock trading is mostly mental? Take it from those of us who have been in this a long time. Making sure you are in a good state of mind (and especially the right spiritual state-of-being) is the MOST important part of your trading.
A while back I read an article on yahoo finance that mentioned a common theme about the wealthy that sets them apart from the middleclass: They deal with uncertainty much more calmly than others. What better way to achieve this than to know that our Savior, Jesus Christ, is in control and to make that our focus as we attempt to learn how to better manage the money He has given to us?
