Stop Living With Financial Fear
Too many people spend their lives struggling with money worries. They worry they’re not making enough. They worry they aren’t saving enough. They worry about losing their retirement. They worry about losing their jobs or businesses. They worry about never being able to retire. Or perhaps they worry about the crushing burden of consumer debt.
We call these feelings a “financial burden” which most people carry more or less for their entire lives.
Our hope is to share with you lessons we’ve learned over a lifetime of working with people to
“Life” has a way of throwing difficult challenges at us and some of these challenges directly impact our ability to make money or force us to spend money on unexpected (and often expensive) life events such as medical issues and divorce.
There are many reasons people would
There are three kinds of people in the world:
- Those who actively trade their own money
- Those who depend on “experts” to trade their money
- Those who can’t be bothered
Starting in 1998 as the first employee of Investools, I’ve traveled the world teaching the people in group 1 various strategies to make their money work harder. But of the thousands of people I’ve trained, only a small fraction of them have actually made money using the market strategies I’ve taught.
For the past 7 years, I’ve had the distinct honor of helping amazing investors like Chuck Hughes and the other authors at TradeWins teach a broader audience how to do what they do….and seen similar success. Only a small fraction actually have the same sort of success despite our best efforts and serious investment of time.
My name is Lincoln Holbrook and I’ve used the last 20 years of my life helping tens of thousands of people all over the world
I’ve spent the past 22 years of my life working with people who either lost money in the markets or whose financial expert had lost money in the markets. These people worked hard for their money and hated seeing it flushed away by bad investments.
As the first employee of Investools back in 1998, I’ve literally traveled the world and worked with tens of thousands of people who wanted to find a better way.
There are three parts to the wealth creation cycle and the vast majority of people are focused on the wrong two.
For the past 22 years I’ve taught thousands of people all over the world ways to put their money to work.
My name is Lincoln Holbrook and for the past 22 years I’ve taught thousands of people all over the world market strategies and investing systems. I’m subscribed to a number of financial newsletters and am inundated by the latest marketing offers, can’t miss trading gimmicks, and proof that this system will (finally) help me turn a few thousand dollars into millions.
I’m here to tell you that none of the stuff out there will work for you like it has (allegedly) worked for them.
What I can tell you is that after 22 years I’ve finally had a revelation about how to consistently prosper in the markets and it’s so dead simple that I can’t believe it’s never been shared before.
I’m so excited about this new way of mastering the markets that I actually decided to launch a whole new business to bring it to you!
Most people with money at risk in the markets don’t really even know it. They’ve invest in their company’s defined retirement plan (like a 401k) and simply trust that the experts who manage those accounts know what they’re doing and that their retirement will be secure and ready for them when they need it.
This reliance (even dependence) on experts puts people into the unenviable position of feeling financial powerlessness and fear. Even you, one of the few seeking to actually do something about it
Let me ask you a question….how hard did your money work for you last year? How about the last five years? If you have a financial advisor, planner, or broker working for you…how well have they done?
My name is Lincoln Holbrook and I’ve spent the past 22 years teaching people what they need to know and do to be able to out
I’ve been in the business of teaching people how to invest or trade the markets since 1998 as the very first employee of Investools. For the past 20 years I did what all the other authors, gurus, and experts did…I taught a specific trading strategy that could be used to make money.
During that time I’ve traveled the world teaching thousands of people how to trade, I spent time working on programs to help people identify the thought processes that sabotaged or supported them in their efforts to be successful, and I’ve
My name is Lincoln Holbrook and I was the first ever employee of Investools in 1998. Over the past 22 years, I’ve taught thousands of people all over the world how to invest and trade the markets. For the past 7 years I’ve worked closely with various authors and expert traders who have unique strategies and needed my help to communicate
Successfully putting your own money to work in the markets is intensely rewarding. At the same time, there are few feelings worse than losing money on a trade. The emotional swings caused by wins and losses will put you under pressure and stress and cause you to react along familiar patterns. You bring a lifetime experience and patterned responses into the markets with you. Some of these tendencies will help you and others you’ll have to guard against. Embracing your natural way of processing information and responding emotionally to the stress caused by trading will help you find the best success in the markets if you select strategies and time-frames that more closely match your natural way of being. To help you, we’ve developed an assessment and a series of lessons help you determine what risk/reward profiles, trading strategies and market approaches would work best for you. We call these trading styles Probability Profiles which are divided into three main groups:
Win Big: A few big wins, many small losses
Just Win: Win about as much as you lose
Win Frequently: Many small gains, a few big losses
You bring rich background of ingrained thought processes and emotional responses to things which helps you navigate your world. Your conscious mind cannot keep up with everything your senses take in so your brain acts as a filter preventing much of this data from reaching it. This is a great strength though it does have limitations. For example, it’s possible to change how you feel simply by thinking about something in a certain way because the brain will release chemicals that change your emotional state. This natural phenomenon can create “blind spots” preventing you from seeing opportunities in trading or cause you to make bad trading decisions on positions you own.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of trading in a “Buy; then hope, wish, and pray for success” way. By aligning your strategies and market approach with your natural trading style, you automatically approach the markets from a position of strength where your natural tendencies serve you and help you find quicker and most consistent success.
As you prepare for your curriculum, think about your life experiences and natural tendencies. You already have life skills that will help you trade more successfully once harnessed correctly. So ask yourself: Are you the person who likes to shoot from the hip? Do you tend to embrace structure? Do you like the adrenaline rush of taking large risks for the possibility of huge rewards? How do you handle failure? Do you tend to get overconfident after a few successes? Are you teachable and open to new ways of thinking?
Only you know your natural tendencies. Be honest and non-judgmental as you think of yours and go through our probability profile assessment. There is no right or wrong, there is only “what is.”
When the Marines teach their new recruits how to shoot, they spend the first week “snapping in” with a rubber rifle. This “snapping in” process consists of practicing the different shooting positions and learning how to properly sight in on the target. The Marines teach 3 elements of a good shooting position: Bone Support, Muscle Relaxation and Natural Point of Aim. Gunnery Sergeant Heath A. Fernald says, “We teach Marines basic fundamentals such as muscle relaxation, proper bone support, shooting positions, and sight alignment. If Marines master all these shooting techniques, they will be successful, but it’s their job to find what works.”
Journaling is an important part of this process. Journal your reactions to the curriculum and what parts of it jumps out at you or bores you. As you begin paper trading or trading with real money, journal your results including any emotional reactions you might have had or mental short circuits that may have occurred. Journaling is really a way of measuring your mental wiring.
journal your trades including your emotional state throughout the life cycle of each position. Journal whether or not you practiced proper risk management and whether or not you followed your designated entry and exit points. Journal your emotional reactions to the trade and whether you were able to follow your system fully or not. This gives you the opportunity to learn about you and your natural approach to the market which will lead to improved results over time.
Journaling what you think, how you feel, what trades you take, and whether you followed your system exactly will help you measure your progress and also help you find consistent patterns in your trading that either sabotage or support you. It is true that things can only be improved if they can be measured. Journaling is a critical element of measurement to help you continually improve your results. Once you’ve started this path of action, assessment and advancement, keep going. You’ll find a new confidence in your financial future as you make steady, incremental improvements to you, your investing approach and your accounts.
Each of the three trading styles we teach over the next several lessons has corresponding and clearly defined risk/reward profiles and associated strategies for approaching the market. Not every strategy works for every person. The best strategy for you is the one you have confidence in and can follow through inevitable wins and losses. If you are drawn to a win big style, your market strategies and investment time horizons should reflect this natural tendency.
Only you know your natural tendencies. Be honest and non-judgmental as you think of yours and as you go through our probability profile assessment. There is no right or wrong, there is only “what is.” There is nowhere to hide from your natural reactions so identify them and the strategies that help you trade from strength.
Like the Battle Plan, you should think of this course as a “Living Document” meaning as you gain experience through our curriculum and trading, come back and review the profiles to help you continue honing your skills and keeping your mind right.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
