Choices of Time

By Adrienne Toghraie, Trader’s Success Coach

How many opportunities do we let slip by because of the comfort of knowing that we can start tomorrow? I talk to some of the same people year after year at shows who tell me of their plans to become a trader only to repeat themselves the next year. Here are some of the promises I have heard traders make that keep them from becoming the person they want to become. I will:

· Start reading that book tomorrow

· Make arrangements for that seminar

· Quit my job

· Spend more time with my family

· Plan that trip

· Take on that hobby

· Volunteer for that cause

· Give up the drugs I am currently taking

· Go to see the doctor

· Hire that coach

· Lose that weight

· Do the things that it takes to become a better trader

The fact is that yesterdays are what brought you to this moment of now and today is what will decide tomorrow. If you put off your life until tomorrow, you will not enjoy the life you want to have.

Bad choices

Over the past few years, we have lost three celebrities whose lives we have followed for many years:
Ed McMann, who was Johnny Carson’s comic sidekick for over thirty years. The choices he made about his financial situation after a lucrative career brought him to a place of needing rescue from foreclosure of his home.

Farrah Fawcett, the actress and pin up girl, we lost from cancer. She created many stressful situations in her life by some of her choices that weakened her body so that it would be a good host for cancer.

Michael Jackson, an icon of rock music, abused his body with prescription drugs, his mind by his choices of conduct and his body by extreme dance rehearsals. And now his children are without their father and the rest of us are mourning his early passing.

Good choices

Clark was a participant in my Master Class in Australia. He is a land developer from New Zealand who decided that he wanted to enhance his income by trading. He asked many questions during the class, which revealed a lot about him. I have learned over the years that by the questions people ask I can usually tell if they will succeed in trading. At lunch I was able to learn more about him, which made me feel certain about the belief I was developing that he would be successful as a trader.

Clark told me about how he worked with his father in construction from the time he could lift a hammer and he loved every moment. He said that his father’s story telling made it not seem like work. It was from this experience that work became a pleasure for him. His mom encouraged him to save two thirds of the money he earned, so he worked extra hard because the third that he could spend would be for the games and entertainment he enjoyed. Clark’s mother also encouraged him to take care of his health by eating well and having balance in his life. Clark purchased a small property at the age of sixteen and built a small house with his father’s licenses. With the profit he earned from selling this property, he purchased and even larger property. This pattern continued to where he is today as a highly successful developer.

I recommended a trading mentor to Clark specific to his personality, and I also recommended that he take my Top Performance Seminar after he traded for at least a month. Clark completed my Trading On Target Course by the time I saw him again. He made two trips to the United States to complete both of my suggestions. After six months since I originally met Clark, he is now earning a substantial living from trading and only putting in two to three hours a day while still maintaining his business. I asked Clark how he finds trading. His response was that the whole process was a blast and he is having a lot of fun. His wife and children were also happy because they got to vacation in the states when he came to study here.

What is time for you?

Is life full of fun time in work and play? Is each area of your life developing into how you want your future to be? If not, make a plan and act today so that your trading and everything that supports it will bring you to a better tomorrow.
