I am a regular Reader of Jiddu Krishnamurti and your book dovetails into his ….. to put it a little more bluntly, your book details “where the rubber hits the road”
Page 110 of your book Rande refers to “The Illusion of Control” … a subject very close to my heart and sole. Is this going to be the Title of your next book? …. I wouldn’t be in the least surprised…. just imagine if Oprah warmed to it.
Just want to thank you again Rande for your book … My Wife and I greatly appreciate it and it will never gather dust”.
Rande’s book, “Mindful Trading: Mastering Your Emotions and the Inner Game of Trading”, goes beyond telling you what a trader’s mind ought to be like. A number of books tell you that. Achieving that mindset remains elusive though. This book shows you HOW to develop a trader’s state of mind. And if you are serious about achieving your dreams of financial freedom, you are going to want to get your hands on this book. The book is available in either a paperback format or as a downloadable e-book (pdf format). Also, read the excerpt. It’s free.
This book explores how fear or impulsivity blocks the potential of the trader you could be. But more than just explaining HOW your fears and impulsivity negatively impact your trading, this book explains what you can DO about it.
Through the use of real life vignettes of traders he’s worked with, Rande tells the stories of traders like you who have wrestled with their psychological demons and conquered them. From the paralyzing hesitation of the fear of pulling the trigger, to the panic of a trade going against you, to the demoralizing disaster of impulse trading to make up for prior loses, you will see how they overcame their self-limiting beliefs and achieved a disciplined, patient, impartial, and courageous mindset — the Trader’s State of Mind.
Rande explores how these traders used the learned skills of emotional regulation and Mindfulness as part of a powerful process to develop a psychological edge that led them to peak performance trading. In this book you will learn how to disrupt old self limiting beliefs that block you from your potential and awaken the potential of the Inner Trader living within you.
This book is not about quick fixes, mind tricks, or gimmicks. This is about long term change and re-organization of the self starting with biological management of emotional states to psycholocial re-invention of the self. Here you will learn that biology and mind cannot be separated. You will see how to change deeply embedded neural pathways that give rise to self limiting beliefs resulting in poor trading performances. It shows you the skills and tools you need to move beyond mediocrity and into your potential as a trader and as a human being.
Until you learn how to manage your emotions and develop your mind to work effectively with uncertainty, you will never achieve peak performance in trading. The very psychological demons you have successfully avoided outside of trading will staulk you in trading — this is unavoidable. In trading, to be successful, you have to master the mind. It is your mind that uses your platform and methodology; it has to be developed like a rookie has to be developed into a seasoned pro. This book will show you the what and how of over coming self limiting beliefs and re-organizing your mind for peak performance trading.
