First of all, let me tell you how sorry I am to lure you into this tread letting you believe you are going to find a Holy Grail of a system that would have pip'ed your computer to the moon and blown your accounts to heaven.
That is not going to happen here....or is it?And I'm not actually that sorry... Bare with me and hang on, it's a lot to read but in the end I think you'll gain on it. I know alot of you constant seek the Holy grail of a system that will make you wealthy without much effort. Many of you don't even care to understand how this systems or EA's work, you just want them to do the job for you. The truth is that there is no such thing as a free meal, not even in forex where the insane amount of money flows around every single day.
I am going to talk about a Holy Grail, but not in the way you might believed when you entered this tread. I just needed your attention to get here..... and I think I've got it if you are still reading.
Let me tell you a little about me and my life so far... My name is Christian, 35 years young and I am from Norway. I'm an edjucated auto mechanic and I have a passion for old american classic cars. I even own a 57 Ford Fairlane which I treat as a baby. She's my pride.
Like many others I have always had the dream about achieve recognition, getting wealthy and live a life where money is no object no matter what.
After years and decades just sitting around for «the beautifull» day to happen I realized that the day will never come unless I make that day myself.
I've tried gambling,different MLM's, regular jobs as an auto mechanic and many different other things. I've even wasted a lot of money in not so legit «games» as World Games Inc & The 5% community...thoose of you older than 30 might know what I'm talking about.
Nothing has ever brought me the wealthy life, cash has never rained over me and there has always been more bills than sheets on a roll of toiletpaper to pay. I struggled for years to understand why I didn't get into the money no matter what I did. I felt that I did everything that I could...only to watch others succeed while I was stepping down with empty and twisted pockets....again and again.
It took me years to admit and understand that I had to be doing something wrong at some point.
And suddenly it appeared as an Holy grail. Not the one I'm gonna talk about here but more as an epiphany I realized that in everything I had ever tried I gave up to early... I was a quitter!
Thanks to my 57 Ford, the car of my dreams I discovered by rebuilding it that persistence was one of the most important properties to success. I spend 800 hours on that car, in ONE winter, between two summer seasons. Yes you did read that right, 800! hours in one winter. When I started the rebuild project I had NO idea it was going to be that comprehensive and I several times believed that the car would never see daylight as one whole car again. It was completly dismantled into bits and pieces and even my friends lost confidence in my project. It can't be done that soon, it won't be ready for springbreak etc was often spoken words when people dropped by to see my project. Well...the law of Jante became a turningpoint for me. I became so determent to get the car ready for springbreak and to prove everyone wrong that I worked nearly 18 hours a day with it, 7 days a week...I even told myself every day while working on the car - «If you don't succeed on this one Mr. .....you're done, finito and a complete failure...for once in your life, DON'T QUIT!! And I didn't... I kept on with a lot of blessing from my fiancee wich at this point was more or less left alone 18 hours a day with our newbourn kid. She knew how important this had become to me that she even served me food in the garage everyday so I didn't have to leave my project at any time. (God knows I love her for that, and her patience and belief in me actually made me propose her to marry me and we are gettting married next year... I have to keep that one, she's absolutly outstanding! )
The car got done just hours before springbreak, and the sight of peoples faces was priceless. I proved that what they said could'nt be done actually was possible. My car even got recognition trough a very popular automagazine and I recieved alot of credit for my car everywhere I turned.
After all that effort, all the times I wanted to quit but kept going made me incredible successfull. I realized that quitters never wins, and that winners never quit. I made my first success in life and it took me months to swallow all the credit and accept that I had earned it. I had pursuit success and credit for so many years that when I finally achieved it I was afraid of absorbing it...it was so unreal that I started to eject it. At a point, I didn't even want to drive the car anywhere cause I was afraid of getting great comments and credit. This did actually become a great problem that I knew I had to overcome somehow and I did.. I went to the worlds largest Car show for 4 days with my car and boy did it get attention! People and enthusiasts from all over the world praised my car. I was intimidated and at a point I couldn't eject the credit anymore and I sat down for hours and cried and cried. My friends and others started to ask my fiancee what was wrong...if anyone died or something and she just answered: He's a little overwhelmed with all the credit and trying to absorb a success greater than he could ever imagine. That was joyfully tears of success.....
Then I understood that fear of success and what it brings is one of the great reasons people actually fails to even try to pursuit they're dreams. They don't know whats coming if they succeed. I achieved one of my greatest dreams, and the success was very hard to swallow..not because I didn't earn it but because I didn't know how to handle it.
From being average to successfull there was a lot to overcome, but when I finally did, it was pure pleasure all the way after that.
I could make this story much longer, but I'll end it right here. I think you get the essence of it.
That was a little about me, and my first step towards success and wealth.... Now, let me tell you about the Holy Grail I promised you earlier.
After my first success I was determent to take another look into, and this time acually make success with Forex. It had drawn my attention many times but I had approched it wrong and failed several times.
Know that I had realized that persistence was a very important teamplayer I faced Forex knowing that I would not double my accounts over the night. I promised myself to give it five years to become a successfull trader AND I was going to learn it step by step no matter what. I had tried to «gamble» my way trough Forex earlier and knew by personal knowledge that it was NOT the way to do it.
I like to think about Forex as a guitar. I know what a guitar looks like and it sounds beautiful when played right by someone who knows how to play.
Learning about forex is like learning how to play a guitar. Step by step you'll learn by making one tone, and then another one over and over again. Then you learn how to play simple songs with just a few grip. It sounds awfull at first but with practise you get better and better. This is a one grip at the time prosess. After hours and hours of practising you will eventually learn more grips and add them into you repertoire. Before you know, you'll play songs that you never thought that you would ever be able to play. And so on...you keep on, learning more and more.
The magic about a guitar, is that NO one will ever be able to play beautifull music unless they start learning the first grip and repeat it so many times that they could do that particular grip whit a blindfold and then move on to the next grip in line. Failure to shift grip and play the tones in the right composission will happen so many times that you wanna quit several times. By persistence and determination all the great guitarplayers in the world started out with just a guitar and not a single note in their repertoire.... but they learn by never giving up, one grip at the time.
The internet is overloaded with them, and they all promis you a ****LOAD of cash in return! Go get them Tiger...I'm sorry I wasted your time here when you could be out there downloading the NEW SUPER EA fivethousandanda****ingbillion with guaranteed 12000% gain in less than 14 seconds!
.....Not quite there huh?
Good, then I think what I'm going to tell you is about to sink in to your mind.
There is a Holy grail.... I promise.
But it's not out there to download or to copy into your system.
The only Holy grail that has ever existed lies within your mind and heart.
Sounds silly doesn't it? ...nothing to download...you just think...»man! ...you just wasted my time, I thought you where the real deal and was about reveal the MOST HOLY **** EVER!»
Bear with me....
To succeed in Forex, you'll have to know how to take a grip like on the guitar, and put it together with another grip and mess up all your charts with it....thats technical analysis. Your indicators are your grips....You know how to do that don't you?
And the next thing that would be really smart is reading up/researching the news...sniff'em up Spicy and suck it in ya! Listen to the beautifull tones, they are going to make you rich!
So, the next thing you do? ....You trade stupid! You do after all know the grips now, and you have listen to the great songs on the radio...so you play the guitar!
Now....what does it sound like?
A little sour isn't it.... you trade like you would play a guitar. Just because you know the grips and are able to listen to others compositions doesn't mean that you are ready to do a consert. For all I know you are as tone deaf as a piece of wood.
It doesn't matter how many indicators you use or how you read and trade the news unless your mind is tuned right.
So here...the HOLY **** IT'S A HOLY GRAIL!
Get your mind straight! Deal with your mental issues like your life depends on it. If you are to succeed in Forex, your money sure does depend on it, and your wealth too.
There is no shortcut to wealth and a ****load of money, stop chasing down the holy grail of free meals after one an another.
Understand that how you will handle Forex lies within you and nowhere else.
No charts, no indicators, no EA, no news will ever make you successfull beause you quit to early on your trades, you get bored when nothing happens, your lack of confiedense kills you when a trade goes 4 pips against you even though you have a SL at 1000 pips.
Have I mentioned the Holy grail yet? ....NO
Would you like to guess? ...or have you already...
Well, if not..
What is extremly important to do, which should be more important than stearing at charts all days, boils down to one simple matter.
There it is! ... De Sangreal!
It all lies within your mind and heart.
I spend more time a day doing mental training than I actually do with Forex.
I work very hard to overcome all my mental issues so I can trade with confindence and patience.
I feed my subconscious with positive affirmations everyday before and after trading.
There are many ways to train your brain and some work better than others.
What works best for me might not do the trick for you but there is always a method for each and one that will work.
The only thing that you should do from here is to google mental training and take it from there.If you are smart enough you'll google all the way into the darkest side of internet to get what you need if you have to. Find what suits you best and realize and understand that this is a very important part of becoming successfull in any part of life.
Oh...by the way...that's actually not the Holy grail....sorry! But I had to "promise you" something to get you to read all the way to this point....if I told you it was work to be done...many of you would probably be out the door long time ago, back into your charts loosing more money and going insane..
I just showed you the door, now its up to you to unlock it with mental training and when you start to master your mind you will discover the Holy grail inside you and you will get stunned by the power you actually possess when your mind is in order.
And remember....no matter how hard it gets, how many times you loose your trades or make other mistakes in your life.
The golden rule nr. 1:
TO WIN THE GAME, JUST REMAIN IN THE GAME.
Failure is a path to success, so dont give up. Just keep moving on with a firm determination.
