Ego and Pride

When you lose money on a trade, you aren't just losing your money, but a large part of your self-esteem as well. The best antidote is to make each trade as impersonal as possible. Don't put so much emphasis on winning. It's merely a trade. It doesn't need to impact your life. Don't turn it into a significant life event. Don't let the outcome define you. The more you can take your ego and pride out of the picture, the more you will be able to trade with a calm and relaxed mindset. You'll feel free. There will be little to fear, and you'll find it easier to trade
