  1. Start the day before the sun comes up. Waking up early gives you time to get centered before the market opens. Use this time to take care of errands, work out, and perform necessary research before the market opens. This way, when the market opens, you’ll have improved mental clarity and focus, and you can devote yourself entirely to making money!  

Staggering statistic: 44% of the rich wake up 3 hours before work; only 3% of the poor do.






  1. Make to-do lists. A daily to-do list is one of the things that sets successful traders apart from those who fail. A to-do list helps you stay accountable to both long and short term goals, and it helps your attentions from straying and prevents procrastination.

Staggering statistic: 81% of the wealthy maintain a daily to do list; less than 1% of the poor do.


  1. Never stop learning. Once you stop learning, you start dying! Learning about everything you can, and in every way you can (books, news, podcasts, etc) will not only keep you current, but it will keep your mind nimble. This is important to stay relevant in the market and to generate great ideas for investments!

Staggering statistic: 88% of the rich read 30 minutes or more per day; only 2% of the poor do.


  1. Save more of what you earn. Saving more of what you earn can help you improve your position as a trader. Ultimately, this means that even by following the same processes, you’ll make more money over time because you have more money to trade with. Keep an eagle eye on your expenses, and get better about saving: it can add up to a big difference in your trading career!


  1. Define your goals. Get more specific than just “become rich” with your goals. Make clear, detailed goals that feel real and motivating to you. The more clear your plan is, the easier it is to follow. Goals are like your own personal road map to success!

Staggering statistic: 67% of the wealthy put their goals into writing; only 17% of the poor make this a habit.


  1. Manage your time. You have more time to trade than you might think. Binge watch TV slightly less, get off of Facebook, and prioritize trading. You’ll be amazed by the effects of devoting more time to trading and studying on your overall career.


  1. Find a mentor. A mentor is someone who is further along in their career than you. You can learn what they did right, and what they did wrong. This can help give you career shortcuts and help you from losing money! The benefits of a mentor simply cannot be overstated.
