Set concrete, attainable goals for the purpose of your trading adventure. Whatever the new strategy or the profit target maybe, with having specific goals, you will not be out of track.
Engage in perpetual learning. Read books, enroll in courses, and keep yourself abreast with the latest market developments. The skill of knowing will put you in a position to cope with anything.
Absolutely! Setting clear, achievable goals and continually educating oneself are vital strategies.

Nothing keeps you motivated like making real money on the job, so grind until you start making good money.
Yeah unfortunately without stable source of income, trading is challenging since you have fixed costs like rent, food, etc. Uncertain trading returns create additional pressure in this sense.

To stay motivated, especially when it gets tough, it's good to set clear goals and keep learning since markets change all the time. Also, keep a trading journal to track what works and what doesn’t. The key is to stay consistent.

Hi, I am Martha, new here. Came to learn how to trade. Any advice and recommendations appreciated.
Welcome, Martha! Great to have you here :) I would suggest you focus on learning one strategy at a time and don't hesitate to ask questions.

Knowing that it is okay to be disappointed, it is okay to lose and even blow an account. Understanding them will help you be kinder to yourself. Knowing the reason that you should keep on is important too. You must know that you are doing this all to get richer, to be more disciplined, and to be who you want. Always, you don't need quotes; sometimes the inner you will come to rescue.

This is such an important reminder :) It's easy to be hard on ourselves when things don't go as planned in trading -_-

I think it's important to focus on the process instead of making it a source of income. I really like how I become more educated and well-versed in finance and this "reward" helps me to stay dedicated to trading even during periods of bad performance.
That's a great perspective!

Absolutely, focusing on the learning journey itself rather than just the outcome can be incredibly motivating. It's about embracing the process of becoming more knowledgeable and skilled in finance, which in turn fuels our dedication to trading, even when faced with challenges.

Why did the forex trader stay motivated? Because he knew that even if he hit rock bottom, in forex there's always a bounce-back waiting to happen! )
