17 Real-Life Tips To Becoming a Successful Trader

Improving your trading with a New Year’s Resolutions, or any other time!

  • Marcus Lemonis, star of CNBC’s “The Profit,” doesn’t wait until the beginning of the year to make resolutions:
    • “I don’t know that I make specifically New Year’s resolutions. I think I typically make a new resolution when something bad happens or I have a failure or something doesn’t go the way I think it should,”
    • “I almost have this reset and I don’t use the calendar year as a time to do that. I use a mistake that I’ve made or a decision that I made that didn’t go right as a time to do that.”

According to Psychology TodayNew Year’s resolutions can make some people feel depressed, unnecessarily stressed out, or disappointed in themselves.


Because most use New Year’s resolutions as “goals” and big ones because they have the target of one year in advance. That’s too long to wait for a reward, in order to keep a person motivated

Should your goals (resolutions) be “big” or “realistic?” You need BOTH.

  • Your long-term goal is your resolution.
  • Your short-term realistic goals are habits.
  • Long Term:
    • Big goal required for inspiration (not motivation) to fill you with the energy of EXCITEMENT. How excited are you about that goal? Does it get you pumped up with energy? Or are you okay if it doesn’t happen?
  • Short Term:
    • Trading examples:
      • Improve your win/loss ratio.
      • Improve your risk/reward ratio.
      • Cut out a bad trading habit:
        • Over trading.
        • Removing your stops when they’re hit.
        • Taking profits too soon.
