Habit #10
  • Add balance to your life

Have you ever experienced a state of mind where you were in an unbalanced state? Can we agree that life balance is important? It’s not just about the money from a trade, is it? It’s about balance! When you are balanced in your lives, don’t you feel balanced in your trading? If you adopt an approach to trading where it isn’t your whole world, you’ll better achieve the work and life balance that we all strive for. Of course, you’ll need to ask yourself how trading fits into your life, how you are planning to simplify your life, what the rewards will be if your trading is on target, and what kind of a life you will have outside of trading.
