A chaotic mixture of shouting, panicked frenzy and animated gestures are the first impressions a viewer would have upon witnessing frantic middle-aged traders on the stock exchanges.

After transforming myself from a consistently losing investor to a winning investor over the past 15 years, I’ve learned that successful investors are the complete opposite of this crazy, exaggerated image.

Instead, they adopt a Zen-like approach that allows them to effortlessly generate significant profits from the markets.

Many traders and investors fall short because they exhibit a trait that guarantees they will never succeed, leading them to seal their fate of failure.

This is a fact regardless of whether they are trading in a warehouse or from the comfort of their home desk.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

There is a simple solution to failing as a private investor and turning things around for consistent results.

By embracing the principles found in meditation practices, you can turn the tide and set yourself on a path to success.

Over 90% of day traders lose money.

The get-rich-quick thrill of day trading and the ability to make money at any time of the day is a false promise that lures individuals in.

The allure of day trading may stem from the fact that it looks a lot like a job.

With a job, you earn money every day as long as you show up and get your paycheck at the end of the month.

That’s short-term thinking.

Trend following is a method of investing that many have not used before.

Following trends requires a different level of thinking. You cannot think in terms of regular income.

Instead, you need to adopt a long-term mindset where large amounts of profit can be made.

Not every day, but after a long time.
