"Rich, I have successfully finished the homework you assigned me. I have attached two spreadsheets. One that show my P&L and the other that shows the "Trade Awareness Journal." After several losing days at the beginning of October, I then started to improve significantly. If you look at the journal you will see strong improvement in my thought process. I can now relax when I don't have clear signals to enter the market. I have switched off the P&L on the top of CQG. I now need to only look at the results after the trade. As a result, most recently, I now have only profitable trading days. Thanks Rich!"

SD, FX Day TraderAllentown, PA               

I had my first Mind Muscles coaching session with Rich and in just one session I was able to identify a suppressed traumatic memory that altered my entire outlook on life and impacted my trading until yesterday. With his guidance we were able to go back almost 40 years and revisit that moment and address the situation from my adult perspective and neutralize its damaging effects. This morning I woke up with a feeling of relief and a new trading outlook.

I wanted to thank you again for speaking with me yesterday. It was a difficult conversation for me to delve into my past like that, but it did provide insight. I started a new 10-day Combine today and am up $750. I moved my stop once and did not like the way I felt at all; my heart was racing and my chest was tight, and I exited pretty quickly. I am not happy with myself for doing that, but remembering the visualizations you had me do yesterday prevented me from doing it again, and I worked on building that muscle (it certainly felt better than the old muscle). Moving my stop only once is certainly an improvement, but if I want to be a professional trader I realize I cannot ever do this. I just wanted to update you and thank you wholeheartedly once again.”

Mind Metrics for Progress:

It is often said that we accomplish what we can measure. We know that it is a challenge to measure progress for our state of mind, so Mind Muscles™ has created a graphical representation of our issues, goals and progress.

Sample Mind Metrics2

Building this graphic during the coaching program gives us the opportunity to see what we need to concentrate on at all times. Also, it is a great feeling for you to see graphically the progress being made. This feature is available for the “Master’s Journey” and the “Intensive.

Rich, just wanted to thank you once again for our session as I have really felt a substantial shift. I have done a solid amount of self-development work but never really honed in on why I do what I do and what it means to me like we did. After our 30 minute call I felt like a weight had been lifted off me, that my mind was clear and at peace, and I could finally focus on what I needed to do in the now. While the big picture goals are still there, I have put them to one side knowing that I don’t have to do it all at once, which as I realize now will in fact get me to where I want to be much faster and make it a far more enjoyable, fulfilling journey.
