I’ve been coaching clients that are day-traders. Their one question that they want to know is “how do I eliminate emotions from my decision making?”
The answer is: “You don’t! You are an emotional being and emotions are always playing a role in every decision you make. Your only access to being a great trader and making consistency good decisions is to operate in the highest frequencies of emotional clarity while making decisions.”
It could be said that there are two emotions: Fear and Love.
The fear-based emotions too often are at the cause of many bad decisions made during the day. It is interesting to consider that the prevalent research indicate that the average person makes approximately 35,000 decisions a day.
The nature of your life is determined by the decisions you make. Every decision you make, makes you! Here is the problem: If you are making decisions from fear, your options are limited. They are myopic, usually an impulses to survive some imagined threat, and their nature increases fear rather than transcends fear. Fear has two concerns: The fear of loss and the fear of missing out.
Here are some examples of fear based emotions: anxiety, panic, anger, sadness, guilt, shame, apathy, and pride.
Decisions are always an attempt to cause a desired future or prevent an unwanted one. That future may be the next moment or years ahead of you. None the less, fear interferes with reality and truth. You ability to predict the next possible, probable future is skewed in a way that the only thing that seems possible is destruction. That will ensure actions (including inaction) that lead to more problems and more drama.
Love based emotions do not interfere with reality and truth. These emotions are compassion, peace, and joy. From within this emotional domain, you can hear, feel, and act in ways that promote growth, abundance, health, and deeply connected relationships.
You need a new paradigm of decision making, one that has you effective in making consistent great decisions and acting in ways that lead you to success, fulfillment, and satisfaction.
