Attitude is not innate.

It is not something we are born with. It is something that we bring to the table because we have actually worked on our attitude. Okay, so if you’re sitting here saying, well, I’m really shy. I don’t care. You can work your attitude.

And again, the cool thing about day trading is that it’s just us and it’s what we bring to the table. So attitude could certainly be like a confidence thing, right? It could be confidence. So today I want to talk about your attitude, right? It’s how you are.

You’ve got the attitude, or you’ve got the negative, right? So you’ve got the positive attitude when you’re strong and really, really looking forward to it and focusing, and you’ve got the negative attitude, right? You could be negatively pessimistic. There are so many ways. Right?

So we’re gonna be focusing on bringing that plus into the attitude. That a game into your attitude. And yes, you can have that attitude. So it’s confidence. Maybe it’s confidence.

How do you have confidence? Own it? You own it. Have you ever seen some people that when they walk in the room, everybody just gravitates towards them or in whatever manner, Right?

Either I want to get to know that person. Oh, my God, that person is too cool. I don’t know if I want to really hang out. They might not want to hang out with me. They’ve got attitude.

They’ve got confidence, right? They walk into the room, they own the room. It doesn’t matter if they know anybody in that room, right? In how they come into the room. So you could also do that with your trading charts, right?

Trading Confidence

I don’t know what’s gonna happen. Or I’m ready to rock these charts. I have done my homework. I have done my Judaism, I have done my trading backtesting.

I have a strategy. I’m here. I’m owning these charts today, and you stick with it. And that is confidence. And of course, confidence just doesn’t happen.

You do have to build your confidence. And what is that? And this is a given. Guys, I’m hoping that you guys already are doing this, and I don’t have to tell you the preliminary and the rudimentary parts of trading. If you have to have a plan, a strategy, you have to have a strong mental muscle.

I have all these videos for you guys so you can check them all out. I talk about these really, really in-depth, but quick for you to be able to apply all that mental stability threshold for how to attain wins and losses. This is all part of trading, and it’s all on how you build your confidence and you build the ownership attitude. That is the absolute most important, right? And it goes through the studying.

You have done the work. When you’ve done the work, you are now ready to show up. There’s this saying by, I don’t know if you ever read the book. If you guys have ever read it. It’s called The Art of War, and the author specifically says that the warrior dies before the battlefield.

So imagine yourself as a warrior. What does that mean? It means they have done all the work here. They have been practicing. They know exactly what they’re doing.

And by the time they get to the battlefield and imagine yourself as a warrior, do you want to get there as a little? I was so scared. I’m so scared. Or I’m ready for battle. What’s the difference?

That’s the attitude. That’s it. I’m kind of ready or ready. Why? Because you have done the work.

This is that work. You have done the work. And when you get into that trade, you’ve got that attitude. You are just drinking and enjoying what is happening because you own it. You know that this is what’s going to work.

So you have to have that attitude, right? So what happens at the end of the day, though, when you have a bad attitude, you have done badly because you aren’t prepared. You haven’t done your home or what happens to you. Here’s the reality. And a lot of people don’t realize that what we bring to the charts and what the charts do to us during the day continues on through the rest of our day and life.

What happens in front of the charts does not go away when you close those charts, right? What does that mean? So if you’re sitting here with a bad attitude, and you’re losing in that when the second you close those charts, you’re going to be bringing that bad attitude to your family, to your kids, to your dog, to yourself, you’re going to be treating yourself like crap. You’re going to be treating them because you’re angry because you had a bad attitude because you want prepared. Most definitely, you didn’t have that confidence because you just jumped in.

You didn’t do your due diligence, which I’m going to talk a little bit about today right now. This is also another thing that is really, really important. First of all, pro athletes, the real ones that we hear about, not the ones that are sitting on the sidelines. They’ve done that work. They have the attitude.

That’s why when you hear them talking, they are full of attitude, and they are confident, right? And the main thing is also they’re gonna have their losses. They have more losses than we do. Believe it or not, yet we remember their wins. Why?

Because they have a short memory. What does that mean? What does short memory mean? It means they have their loss. They just let it rub off, and they move on to make the next valid move.

And what is that? That’s from the attitude. That’s from the confidence. Right? So if you are constantly doing that and not having your bad attitude by having the confident attitude and it’s not being positive, I’m not saying that.

It’s about having a confident attitude, the ownership attitude. Alright, I fucked up in there. Okay. I realize that. But it’s okay because I’m going to go on now to the next move because I know now that I know what I’m doing, I am ready for this battle, and I’m continually looking for that next valid move.

We have to have short memories too. That’s what traders do. We have to have the short memories to give ourselves that confidence, that ownership, and this way, even if we have some lost days, and you will have lost days, but they will be lost days because you have already done the work and every trade setup that you will take should have between 20% to 10% of lost range. That means the win. The trading setup should be between 80% to 90% wins.

You know that. And today you still did all the right moves. You own the charts. You have good. You had a strong attitude.

So when you shut down that chart, when you shut down your computer, guess what. You’re bringing that ownership attitude to the rest of your day. And that is confidence. You will treat your family with that positive, strong attitude. You will have that confidence because you understand what you have done.

It’s all about the attitude. Remember, the warrior who wins has done the work and when they enter that battlefield, they’re standing up, right? They’re not all Meek and scared. Which one are you? Are you gonna own it, or are you gonna let it own you?

I’m Marina The Trader Chick, and I’ve got lots of great videos for you guys and I want to hear, how do you own the market? What are you doing to have that strong attitude? Right below in the comment. I want to know what you guys are doing, and I have lots of other videos for you guys.
