Show Notes

Athlete crossing finish line and becoming great

I am confident that each of us has achieved success in certain areas of our life… business, sports, family, health, trading and so many other areas.

Once we reach a strong level of success and can clearly see that we are good at what we are doing, don’t allow yourself to stop. Don’t be afraid to step away from the success of “Good” to strive for “Great”.

All of us will experience being good at many things, and we need to take time to enjoy that and reap the rewards. However, we should never stay still and go stale. Look for ways to enhance, strengthen, stretch your wings and when you do this; you will see that you have so much more that is within you.

When you learn how to take this step, you will then have the urge to share it with someone else. This is how we pass it on so that the growing never stops. Don’t be afraid to stretch. Be excited about moving towards feeling great.

  1. Dear Steve,

    Thanks for sharing your insights on trading psychology.

    In a future podcast i would love to hear your perspective on probability and it’s relationship to the mind of a trader.

    Good trading!

  2. I, also, too, would also like to hear more about probability and its relationship to trading psychology :) BTW, where have you been for the past couple of months? ….missing the podcast dearly right now. I hope everything is okay.

  3. Hey, what happened to the podcast? At first, I thought Steve must have been in a horrible accident or diagnosed with a life threatening condition. But Steve didn’t just drop off the face of the planet, because I noticed several recent postings on by him. Has the podcast ended for now because Steve has exhausted his resources? Has Steve run out of useful topics? It would be nice to know what happened. If anyone from Trading Metro would like to comment, then I’m sure it would be appreciated.

  4. Hey loyal MOT listeners,

    FXStreet syndicates our podcasts; they are not new (notice the timestamp on the podcasts themselves).

    The Mind of a Trader is on hiatus; call it a summer break if you will. Look for new podcasts in the fall.

    Keep the feedback coming!


    Producer, Mind of a Trader Podcast

  5. I miss the weekly podcasts, hope that Steve and his team will continue with this teaching and mentoring series!

  6. Hey Steve

    Miss your podcasts. Please keep up the good work.
    Looking forward to more indepth insights from you in 2010.
