Inappropriate Expectations

Trading is only difficult when you have inappropriate expectations. You ensure it will be difficult by expecting it to be easy. You ensure frustration when you expect the Market to be certain and predictable. By expecting the Market to do what you think it should do, you ensure disgust and subsequent lack of confidence ā€“ guaranteeing that you will not be available for the trade which the Market does agree with.

Expecting not to lose, you are sure not to win.

Expecting to be right, you are already wrong.

Give up all your expectations, let the Market go where it will, do what it must and behave as it should. Stay fascinated, stay uncertain and confused but with a smile. Place a trade and be fascinated when the Market occasionally agrees with you!
