How To Motivate Yourself To Trade For A Living
In episode 152 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Jerremy Newsome, full-time trader, CEO and co-founder of RealLifeTrading. We discuss hacks & mindsets you can use to successfully trade for a living.
One of the tough aspects and tough parts when it comes to achieving something great is to be motivated daily and to be able to achieve your goal no matter what you think. I interviewed Jerremy a few episodes back (episodes 113 and 148) but today we talk about his history, what he went through and how he kept pushing no matter what happened.
In this podcast, Jerremy talks a little bit more about everything he faced and how he was able to get back. This is really inspirational if you’re struggling with achieving your goals at this point or if you’ve been facing some tough times. Jerremy is the man. I’m almost 100 percent sure you’ll like this episode.
