Let’s Take A Motivational Break Now That We Have Made It To The Halfway Mark!

Now you have to ask yourself; is stopping half-way through any projects you have taken on something you find yourself doing often? This tends to be the breaking point for many, they set out to complete a task but at the first sign of trouble they give up because their motivational skills are weak. Is this what happens to you?

It is up to you to not allow your dreams to slip away in night. You must do whatever it takes to keep yourself motivated if you are to achieve any type of significant success in your life. The next time you are working towards a goal and you come across a bit of resistance remember to put your motivational skills to work. It’s

OK to stop and regroup at the halfway mark but that is all that you do, once you are sure you're still on the right path it’s time to get moving again.

■ N – Never lie, cheat or steal.
Always play a fair game. A person with a good moral standing will go further in life than an unmotivated cheat. Never look for short-cuts to good things, this will lead to missed opportunities and challenging possibilities.

■ O – Open your eyes.
People should learn the horse attitude and horse sense. They see things in 2 ways – how they want things to be, and how they should be. Life is full of possibilities, keep the motivation to go after the wonders in the world.

■ P – Practice makes perfect.
Practice is about motivation. It lets us learn repertoire and ways on how can we recover from our mistakes. Maintaining the motivation to work hard towards the things you truly want out of life will bring you more rewards than sitting back and expecting things to happen.

■ Q – Quitters never win.
And winners never quit. So, choose your fate – are you going to be a quitter? Or a winner?

■ R – Ready yourself.
Motivation is also about preparation. We must hear the little voice within us telling us to get started before others will get on their feet and try to push us around. Remember, it wasn’t raining when Noah build the ark. The boy scout motto is “Be Prepared” and this is a way of life we should all adapt to.

■ S – Stop procrastinating.
Nothing kills motivation more then procrastination. Choose to spend your time accomplishing positive things in your life.

■ T – Take control of your life.
Discipline or self control jives synonymously with motivation. Both are key factors in self improvement. When you know what you want out of life and you are motivated to work towards the attainment of your dreams, you will accomplish more then the average person lacking motivation.

■ U – Understand others.
If you know very well how to talk, you should also learn how to listen. Yearn to understand first, and to be understood the second. Understanding another persons problems in life and being motivated to offer help to others, builds your own character.

■ V – Visualize it.
Motivation without vision is like a boat on a dry land. Your mind can bring you whatever you desire in life. Visualize success and success will be yours, visualize defeat or loss and failure will encompass your life. Maintain the motivation to visualize success and achievements.

■ W – Want it more than anything.
Dreaming means believing. And to believe is something that is rooted out from the roots of motivation and self improvement. When you have strong wants this leads to the motivation to attain what you truly desire.

■ X – X Factor is what will make you different from the others.
When you are motivated, you tend to put on “extras” on your life like extra time for family, extra help at work, extra care for friends, and so on. Set yourself apart from others, stand out in the crowd, hold your head up high with pride and conviction.

■ Y – You are unique.
No one in this world looks, acts, or talks like you. Value your life and existence, because you’re just going to spend it once. Use the fact that you are one of a kind to excel at everything you do in life. True motivation is for you and you alone, use it to move forward in life, show your uniqueness.

■ Z – Zero in on your dreams and go for it!!!
Never lose your motivation to go after your dreams because living your dreams means you are living your life.

"Plan Your Trade and Trade Your Plan."

Your Stock Trading Efforts Are Doomed To Failure without This..........

So many of us seem to lose money, or at best are just fortunate to break even in the stock market. Have we ever wondered why?

Quite often, beginning traders get excited when they get lucky and one or two of their stock picks turns into a profitable trade. The thought then naturally follows that this "stock trading thing is pretty easy!" With so many books, magazines and info available on the internet devoted to trading and investing strategies, the excited trader then starts devouring every bit of information they can get hold of. Their new-found knowledge will certainly ensure success - right?

Quite possibly, with this newly acquired plethora of knowledge, trading can go pretty well for a time. Sooner or later, at some point when they hit a snag and see their profits starting to dwindle, the thought then naturally occurs "what am I doing wrong?" It can be both frustrating and disappointing. It's not monopoly money you're playing with, after all.

Time to reign things in and get a real Stock Trading Plan. That's what's been missing from the start. Even when you set out with the best of intentions, and armed to the teeth with all the knowledge available - if there isn't a proper Trading Plan to follow, you're doomed to failure. You just can't implement everything at the same time. You have to pick a few strategies - and stick with them.

It seems so simple, doesn't it? But in our information age, it's so easy to get overwhelmed with all the available knowledge; use a little of this, a little of that, and you just end up hurting yourself and getting discouraged. It's wise to use a few strategies when you know how to implement them, and that in itself becomes a strategy that will work for you when you know what you're doing.

It's more than wise to devote some time to create a stock trading plan for yourself - and stay the course. Stick with your plan, and make adjustments along the way. See what works and what doesn't work so well for you. In doing that you will educate yourself by understanding the why of what works and what doesn't. This can only help to improve your overall trading plan.

Learn from your mistakes - like every other trader has done before you. Don't give up, only to start over from scratch. Put your lessons to good use in adjusting your trading plan. But above all - have a plan.
