You've probably realized by now that profitable trading doesn't happen in a straight line.

It's a journey that takes longer than expected for most people.

But that doesn't mean you have an excuse for not getting results!

If you're currently trading Forex and not seeing consistent results, the first thing you should do is to take a step back and examine everything you're doing.

That is more powerful than looking for new strategies and/or trading advice.

I once worked with a trader who had been trading for 3+ years.

He had a strategy & a trading plan written down, but at the end of the month, he wasn't making money.

While he was spending his nights looking for other people's “best trading strategies”, I told him this wasn't what he needed.

We looked at his results and it was clear that he wasn't practicing continuous improvement in his own trading.

After a few tweaks in his strategy and a new set of routines, he was ready to get on the right track.

A couple of months ago, I received an email from him saying he had seen his best year of trading so far – first profitable 12 months!

I hope that illustrates the power of looking at what you're already doing in addition to implementing new habits to succeed.

If you're looking for more than that, here are several videos that will help you break through this particular stage in your trading:

For my part, most “bad things” I was doing in my trading began to shift when I moved from seeing myself as “just a trader” to instead a “trading business” owner.

This is the purest form of the common advice “treat trading like a business”.

The question is NOT “have you ever heard that advice?”.

The real question is “are you currently applying that in your trading?”.

If yes, you will soon begin to see much better results.

But if you're not sure how to make this happen…

…or if you are looking for guidance to minimize the mistakes & trial-and-error along the way, keep on reading!

Committed To QUIT Your Job & Trade Full-Time?

If you are serious about eventually quitting your job to trade & travel the world, spend time with your family, or simply live life on your terms, you'll want to consider joining the Desire To Trade Academy.

It is the only program proven to develop your Forex trading skills through a supportive environment so you can experience more freedom.

As you've seen above, some of our students have been able to achieve a lot of momentum through this Academy. I personally believe that ongoing support is what many traders are lacking.

And although the Desire To Trade Academy isn't for everyone – we do have a strict application process – I'd love for you to be a part of it!

Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
