There was one losing trade of £1000 and it is printed in red. I asked the qn , what did you first noticed? Subconciously; i wanted my friend to say what i wanted to hear though she may not. She was merely the enactment of my imagination.
Of all trades that did well; why am i spending time; energy to focus on the red numbers?(losing trade)
Besides the red colour that contrast with the blue; are there any implied reasons for my unnecessary attention?
What we give attention to; it expands and take up our mind space. Instead, i should praise myself for the 4 other winning trades. Oh, i am so good that i got 5/6 winning trades and very soon; it would be full score.
The red number is like our weaknesses and if we spent time dwelling on it, not only do we lose perspective on our strength and the latent ones but we also begin to lose our confidence.
We can and must accept this red number and replace it with blue(profits) and conjure a picture in our mind and draw from our feelings board the positive feelings we would have if this is true.
The big picture or the end goal which in my case is to triple the account size (from 50k to 150k) is more important than the means to reaching this end. The journey will be fraught with challenges and if one is not mentally strong enough to persist through the adversity; the chances of quitting, falling into negative emotions and affects other areas of our lives. Keep the vision at sight and think from it as if the wish has been fulfilled. What would the feeling be like if i have achieved turning 50k to 150k?
What kind of celebration would there be? Who would know this outcome?
And what would they say to you? How do feel when they shake your hand and say; wow how did you do it?
The many mansions mentioned in the bible refers to the psychological dwelling states that we get ourselves into. If we are unhappy; frustrated with our present circumstances, we are free to choose another mansions ( surprise; excitement; peace,etc) that our Father has prepared for us.
And once we choose it, stay inside the mansions and absorb the atmosphere that it provides and allow it to consume us totally.
Don't we feel a sense of relief that we are now in where we want to be?we can let go of the fear; anxiety and the uncertainty that we have been carrying all these while.
It is like a heavy burden lifted off our shoulders and now we can rest.
And this scene is not a temporal one in case you are wondering. We have the power to anchor it down and by fixating on the feelings of the wish fulfilled; we invariably have proclaim ourselves as the owner of these mansions. Stay for as long as you like and move to others where your heart desires.
Whether be it the media of any kind that exemplify the negatives news headlines that subtly prompt you to read, to digest and worse accept as the truth even it is not the real truth.
Like a sheep without a clear sense of direction; we aimlessly allow the shepherd(media)to guide us.
We can repent instead of getting bitter and blame them for the state that we are in. To be bitter; we must first have a conversation in our mind; one that is negatively attuned - blame, anger; unfairness; revenge; evil; frustrations;etc.
This conversations get louder as we think more about it like a baby plant that we give attention to.
It will blossom and bear fruits that multiply.
We can come out victorious from this circumstances by changing our attitude, one that contains forgiveness, harmony, forward looking; vision inspired instead.
Magnify the blues so much that it will drown the red over time and long
There is nothing but an ocean of blues in your portfolio.
