I haven't given up, but...
I had to give up my way of thinking.
When I started in 2010 I had no idea what I was getting into...
Being a high achiever I saw trading as a new challenge. I got excited about the potential and the opportunity to learn a new skill.
Since I was already quite an accomplished individual, with an established well-prospering business and a great prior career in the corporate world, I had no doubts I could be a successful trader. I'm someone who ALWAYS achieves my goals!
So, when I got stuck in a trading failing cycle it was hard for me to understand what I was doing wrong.
I tried to solve it by changing strategies, reading more trading books, joining various chat rooms, and following the online gurus.
None of these steps however (not even my IQ of 132) helped me to stick to my plan and improve my trading results.
I was still losing all my profits, along with my confidence and health...
But giving up was not an option! I started asking myself honest questions and looking inside my head for answers.
And the biggest lesson I've learned during this discovery process was that the way we, humans think doesn't work in the market environment.
Without changing our perspective on many things that we consider "normal", there is no way we can resist the impulses that the market triggers.

Thanks to my prior experience...
As a NLP Master Practitioner and a Life Coach, I was able to guide myself through radical changes.
I've got a strong grip on my emotions and changed my mindset to think the way necessary to succeed in the stock market.
Going through the deep transformation process and implementing a trading mindset was one of the MOST ENRICHING EXPERIENCES in my life.
It helped me detach from my fears and gave me a sense of confidence that doesn't depend on my trading results, but rather on a deeper sense of self-integrity.
By giving up my old ways of thinking, I became a consistently profitable trader. I was able to created a life that gives me a great sense of fulfillment and financial independence.
And because that's what I wish for you too, in 2019 I started Ahead Coach.
