Tell your brain what you want and then be conscious of each word you use about yourself when trading
Welcome to March and I see a lucrative month ahead for you. To make the most of the movements you will see in March I will cover the power of autosuggestion in this article. Keeping with the theme from your previous blog I am basing this post on Napoleon Hill’s book ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
We think over 60,000 thoughts per day. This is an enormous number and 1 percent of these thoughts are consciously realised. The stimulus received from the environment also goes into our brain and add to the process of creating our life. 90% or our results in life manifest from the unconscious programming. The good news is that we can change this programming so we achieve the results we want not just be on auto-pilot! To achieve the desired results, I will show you how to use this tool – Autosuggestion.
Autosuggestion is simply self-suggestion, and comes under the logo of self-talk and we blabber on daily without consciously being aware of that every word we say and every thought we think has far reaching effects. This art of managing your conscious thoughts comes with practice and the good news is that when we make this a conscious habit our unconscious thoughts start to change shape and we enter a new dimension where suddenly we start to get desired results in our lives.
The result/ desire I want you to focus on is the amount of money you want to create from your trading right now.
Follow these simple steps
Step 1: Write a clear and precise statement of $ figure you want each week/ each month. Write both these in a simple sentence. Ask yourself what is realistic and then double it.
Step 2: “Your ability to use the principle of autosuggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession” Napoleon Hill
Now I want you to focus on this number and check if you feel any discomfort in your body (anywhere) Read your statement loudly. Close your eyes. Check for any discomfort.
If there is any discomfort, then move your body in any of these ways
- Jog on the spot move your legs till you get mildly breathless. Repeat the statement while jogging. Stop and Check how you feel.
- Close your eyes and imagine a beam of white light coming through the top of your head and running through every cell of your body and going down into the earth and ask for this light to clear this discomfort. See it getting washed out.
- Drink a glass of water while visualising that the water is taking away this discomfort and filling every cell in your body with this new statement.
The above simple steps will take you into a place of acceptance for what you are saying.
Step 3: Repeat this statement again and again with EMOTION.
The easiest way to make your desire a burning desire and add emotion to it is to imagine how would it be like when you achieve this result. Make this process fun. Feel the vibration in your body. See yourself making this amount easily and watch it come to you and then visualise what changes are happening as a result. This is a short exercise so do it daily for 10 minutes (NO BRAKES!)
Every time you repeat the process you must check with your body for any discomfort. Your body’s highest intelligence will give you clues about your unconscious ‘resistance’. You already know that this resistance is stopping you from having what you want therefore don’t fight it just acknowledge it and do the process.
Do this for 10 minutes daily. Don’t worry if you don’t get the result immediately of you still feel that you don’t believe it etc. Well this is why you are using this tool to start to condition yourself for a new you.
Step 4: Every time you sit in front of your pc to trade repeat the following BEFORE you start to do anything with the trading terminal.
- Close your eyes; thank the market in advance for paying you for your services of turning up in front of your screen and executing your trades.
- See yourself placing trades with precision and feel guided to the right signal that will make you money.
- See yourself collecting pips – The trading terminal is green.
- Repeat aloud the written statement of your money. This is placing an order to your subconscious mind in a precise statement.
- Breather in and out and start.
The reason human beings are a master of their own destiny is because we have the power to influence our own subconscious mind – a skill that can be developed with practice.
I invite you to believe that you can consciously influence your subconscious mind to create your own destiny.
I would love to hear from you on [email protected]
Have a prosperous March and I will see you at one of my Power Trading Days.
