Speaker: Rande Howell
Mastering Self Doubt- Building an Effective Trading
develop the knowledge of trading, anticipating that they will be
rewarded. But then the moment they try to use that knowledge
under pressure, access to the hard earned knowledge disappears.
Instead, Self-Doubt creeps into the mind and the dreams of
trading get washed down the drain.
What happens to a perfectly good mind
when it falls apart at the wrong time consistently -- and what
can be done about it? For the few who have the courage to face
their fears, emotional self mastery opens the door to a very
different way of dealing with uncertainty. It's like a new life.
Come learn how you can redefine the way you approach uncertainty
and find the zone.
Rande Howell is a performance
coach and licensed therapist. His work focuses on using
emotions to build an effective mind for the management of
uncertainty and is grounded in Emotional Intelligence,
Mindfulness, and developing latent potential in traders.
He teaches traders how to harness emotions to achieve the
performance edge so they can effectively control the mind that
is brought into the moment of managing uncertainty, rather than
attempting to control the outcome.
Rande travels, speaks, and trains
internationally for the emotional finance community. His
publications have appeared in many venues and he is the author
of the book, "Mindful Trading: Mastering Your Emotions and
the Inner Game".
