If there are people in your life who do not support your efforts to become a successful trader, avoid them. Avoid those who express negative energy on a regular basis and vent their hostilities towards you. Wherever possible terminate unhealthy emotional relationships that cannot be repaired, and if necessary, do it immediately.
Negative energy has a cumulative effect that eventually wears down your positive attitude and energy to be successful. Life is too short to be with those who do not believe in you or your abilities to achieve success. A loving partner takes an interest in your work, encourages your efforts, expresses compassion during difficult times, and always tries to help you grow.
Sometimes it helps to find a trading office where instead of getting a bunch of flack from those around you, you can find support, encouragement, and perhaps learn a few tricks from successful traders. I did say a trading office, not a newsgroup or chat room. All you will find in those places is a lot of negative energy, gossip, rumors, and most people who are so confused they can’t see the forest for the trees. For the most part, people who frequent those places, are no better off than you are, and in many instances a lot worse. You cannot believe much of anything you hear in newsgroups. Sorry about that, but it’s true.
