Life relates to trading and trading relates to life. Constantly revealing, unfolding before us as we trade and live, so I write about how my life relates to trading and how I trade the markets. Along the way I share my opinions on anything that evokes my passion or tickles my funny bone trying not to forget that enjoying life is the best part of living.

The Daily Note - Scripting Your Future
Okay I won't repeat here what I wrote there but it's related to what I am about to continue to write here.
You see, all that hate and bad news purported back then created our present time. Although it was not reality then, it is reality today. In other words, we scripted the future which we are now living just as we are scripting our future with our present thoughts.
We not only script our futures collectively we also script them individually so it stands to reason that what we are thinking about ourselves today will be reality not only in our tomorrow but it can be also argued that it is our reality from minute to minute. So if we can script our present and long term future, we can also script our present trades and future wealth.
Each action we take has to be preceded by thought. Each thought we have has energy behind it to drive us into action. The higher the energy, the more decisive the action the lower the energy behind the thought the less we are likely to follow through with action. No matter which action we take it reinforces the thought which in turn makes the thought more powerful the next time around. Therefore the more predominant the thought the more we are likely to make it happen or create its reality.
If you don't think your thoughts are writing your future, at least be aware of them. Prove it to yourself that they carry no weight in your actions and decisions about actions you take. There is only one way that I know which will bring you face to face with your thinking. That is to physically write them down. Each thought which occurs needs to be written down. Of course, that is an overwhelming task and nearly if not totally impossible. So then perhaps what is a better more focused way of tackling the task is to pick a topic which you wish to do better and write down your thoughts on the subject each time you notice it. The more you write, the more you will notice when they occur and eventually, you will discover a stream of reoccuring thoughts which when examined show why you are taking the action about the subject in a certain direction.
Now, apply that to your trades. Each and every time you think about a trade. Write down your initial, continual and final thoughts about it. The thought which prompted you to look, analyze and take action on a trade; and also why you discard or dismiss them from becoming reality. Add to those your thoughts on how it feels while you are in and excecuting a trade. Make note if your mood changes from initial action and continued progress. Noting your feelings and your mood signals that a thought has occured which you may have missed because if your mood or feeling change, your thoughts have already changed.
As you examine your notes, notice how your thoughts have followed the progress of each trade. Notice how and where your thoughts lead and notice how your thoughts guide your trade and give you advantage or disadvantage over the trade you hold. Thought scripts can be old and are a habit from the sheer number of times they occured and got reinforced. They can be difficult to break, but the more conscious we are about them, the faster we recognize them and the easier it becomes to turn them into thoughts we desire for our future. In other words, what we recognize we can change and manage in order to create a more positive outcome. It is thus that we can consciously script our future.
By practicing thought supervision while trading you can literally pre-script your outcome just by directing your thoughts. Scripting the trade or planning it is visualization which then is reinforced by the positive execution of it. It's energy created by thought and patterns created by repeated thought practices. I don't mean that you can literally change the top of bottom of the trade, because that takes collective concious thought, but I do mean that you can recognize that collective thought and that you can literally make the best trade available to you as a result.
Just as it takes negative scripting to have a bad life, it takes positive scripting to have a good one. We all have heard about people who have made conscious decisions to literally change the outcome of a bad situation. Those people literally changed their script at that instant. You can make your script change just as fast provided the thoughts have enough power behind them. Life or death situations illustrate the example the best.
It is also true that how much we enjoy what we do carries an enourmeous power behind it therefore enjoyment reinforces the repetition of the act. As negative thoughts are brought about and create dissatisfaction, it stands to reason that positive thoughts are then brought about and create satisfaction. Each satisfying outcome helps us script another one which at first will need an effort but later as it is reinforced will become effortless. Each trade we execute well will help you to script another one at first with effort but later with much more ease allowing you to enjoy your trades more and more often.
As you start loving what you do, you will not only have better trades and a better present but also you can count on a better future. When you do what you love, there is no room for anything but happiness. So, enjoy your life and enjoy your trades and script your future well.
Happy Trading, Living and Dancing
