When you first start out in the forex trading world, you are probably going to be filled with enthusiasm and eager to learn everything there is to know about the subject. When your body is in this state, it’s often easy to learn and you are going to be focused most of the time, and I think this is one of them main reasons as to why so many people achieves quick initial success in the trading world. However, if there’s one thing that is true about human beings in the twenty-first century it is that we often lack two major abilities: Will power and discipline!

Whereas many people have initial success due to the fact that they are so obsessed with trading, it often happens that their success turns in to failures. I believe that this is because they get a bit tired of trading after the “honeymoon phase” is over, and this unmotivates them to continue to learn about trading. Instead, they continue to follow the basics that they have learnt, which is usually not a very solid foundation, and as their results gets worse and worse, they eventually decide to drop out of forex trading and head on to new projects, and this is where will power comes in. Cambio Divisas is a trading site from spain that has a really good article about how to motivate yourself.

When we talk about a lack of will power, this is typically affecting the person in question in all aspects of life, not just forex trading. But how does one go about in order to keep their motivation and will to develop themselves in the forex world? First of all, I think it’s important to remember that learning new things aren’t always easy, and it’s never enjoyable all the time. You need to stop looking for quick stimulation, and accept the fact that this is something that might take years before you truly master.

A good way to start off is to make a bit of a game plan. Set up a schedule where you dedicate certain hours of the week and day to learn even more about forex trading, and don’t allow yourself to skip those hours. You should neither expect the results to come straight away, but keep in mind that when they do come eventually, it will be because of the hard work you’ve put in and the reward will feel much better. The greatest rewards are always the one that we’ve truly deserved.

Imagine if whenever you’d wish for something, it would come true. Sure, you would probably have the best time of your life for a couple of weeks, but that too would eventually become boring and unpredictable. One of the basic things in life that we need are challenges, and real happiness comes from conquering these challenges!

So remember, when you start out in forex trading, you might have initial success, but you will have to work in order to keep that success sustainable, and you just have to be willing to push through the mud in order to achieve true mastery of the game!
