Episode 328: Conjuring a “Back Against the Wall” Mentality for Your Trading Success

“Stop hiding the fact that you’re a trader. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about.” —Rob Booker

Happy Monday! In Episode 328 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker brings you a solocast about conjuring a “back against the wall” mentality for your trading success. Rob begins by describing that phenomenon where many people aren’t successful at trading until their back is against the wall and they have no other options except to succeed. Failure is not an option. Rob says there’s a certain type of person who is automatically going to do well trading.

And since most of us aren’t that type of person, Rob says we need to grow up and stop worrying about a lot of the things we typically worry about. So, Rob gives some steps to help you conjure your own back against the wall mentality. A must-listen! Thanks for joining us.

    Totally profound Rob, Thankyou
    In my experience, physical circumstance is, of less importance: happiest time,of my life, was in a basic caravan -mid winter, in a field – with the love of my life. She had her troubles, and walked, out the caravan door, at 1am; having held knife, at my throat…I would have died for her,
    So I got in car -searching for her [ with thoughts of deliberate death, at speed] on a country track.
    But, I found her -walking back to Aberdeen: we had eleven very happy years, after that.

    I think, the most profound damage, is in childhood: whether it be sibling rivalry -older brother; bullying at school; parental dis-interest = low self esteem..this can last decades, of one’s life. Dave

    Enjoyed this solo Rob. Cheers. Pity I still can’t see any other’s comments as did enjoy them. How about interviewing Duane again, that would be a show stopper.
