Habits #4
  • Commit to your education with a trading coach

How do successful performers structure their improvements in any field of endeavor? The answer is pretty clear. They have a coach and they build skills by studying, learning and practicing. Most expert performers engage mentors at various points in their careers to help them learn and grow. If you think you can train on your own you’ll need to define structures to keep you on track and accountable. Take the step to keep yourself on track and to achieve your goals –  think about getting a coach. It’s often too easy to get locked into your own head and your own ideas and before long you’ll find your visions have narrowed.
