Daily Affirmations Will Improve Your Trading

This article is guaranteed to improve both your trading and your life.

positiveaffirmationDon’t believe me? Well I am living proof that the concepts in this article work. I am not just talking about trading here, I am talking about life, happiness, success and freedom. Everything I have achieved in my life or in business can be attributed to the concepts in this article in some way. So do yourself a favor and read this article twice.

Today I would like all of my readers to leave a comment and tell me how you plan to use these new powerful skills to improve your trading or your life, I want to hear from you.

Anything  you want to achieve in this world can be attracted to you by following the core principles in this article. For those reading this who have the goal to become a better trader – please take this knowledge, practice it and harness it’s power to improve your trading and your life.

An affirmation is defined as: “The assertion that something exists or is true”. Daily affirmations are a widely practiced method for attaining success and accelerating your ability to achieve goals.

Napoleon Hill is one of my favorite authors, and in my opinion he was the best motivational coach of all-time. He became famous by interviewing many of the most successful people of his time like Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and others, and the one thing that they all seemed to have in common was that they “acted as if” what they desired most already existed before they had it. Indeed, this is the core philosophy of Hill’s work and is the main reason why daily affirmations are so important to long-term success in any field, including trading. Here’s my favorite quote from his work:

“What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” –Napoleon Hill

This is perhaps the most famous motivational quote of all time, I have it on the wall in my trading office and I read it out loud to myself every day, I strongly suggest you do the same. After reading this article you can check out Napoleon Hills Videos here to learn more about his amazing work on personal development and attaining success.

Here is a list of 17 daily trading affirmations that you can incorporate into your trading plan and that you should read out loud to yourself every day. Doing this will work to keep you motivated to practice proper trading habits and generally stay on the path to Forex trading success:

1. “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” – Napoleon Hill

This is the most important motivational quote of all time, which is why I have it listed again. If you haven’t read Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich Book, I suggest you do so in the near future, it’s the single best piece of motivational literature ever written in my opinion, and it will likely have transformative effects on your trading and your personal life.

2. “I am a successful trader”

If you repeat to yourself everyday that you are a successful trader, it will make you a lot more likely to do the things that are necessary to become one. If you do not believe you are a successful trader, you will never become one, as with anything else in life, you have to believe in your cause or goal before you can make it a reality.

3. “I am consistently following my trading plan”

You need to approach Forex trading as a business and be strategic and logical in following your trading plan; don’t deviate. If you’ve taken the time to formulate a comprehensive trading plan based on your trading strategy, your trading will be the most effective when you follow your plan, since you were objective and clear-minded when creating it.

4. “I have a Forex trading journal and I use it”

If you have a Forex trading journal and you actually use it, you will be far ahead of most traders. It’s critical to keep a running track record of your trading performance so that you have a tangible piece of evidence that reflects your trading ability or lack thereof. A trading journal will also give you something to stay accountable too and help you remain disciplined and organized.

5. “I practice proper risk management”

It’s important to remember that trading success is defined over a large series of trades, not over one or two. This means that you should not give too much significance to any one trade, and the way to do this is by never risking more than you are comfortable with losing per trade. By that I mean, never risk an amount that keeps you up at night thinking about or watching your trades. Remember to take small losses and that you are going to have losing trades; it’s just part of doing business in the Forex market.

6. “I trade according to what the market IS doing, not what I think it ‘should’ be doing”

We want to trade what we actually see on our Forex price charts, not what we “think” should happen or what we “want” to happen. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what you want the market to do; it’s going to do what it wants, so your job is to learn how to read its price action and take advantage of it, not fight against it.

7. “I will only take trades that give me a reward which clearly outweighs my risk”

The goal of any trader or investor is to make sure that the prospective reward of a trade clearly outweighs the risk involved. You need to gauge the market structure prior to entering a trade and make sure there is a logical reason for expecting that the risk reward on the trade is at least 1:1.5 or 1:2 or better.

8. “I will find other things to do besides watching my trades after they are live”

There’s nothing wrong with checking in on the market every 4 or 8 hours, but if you are sitting there addicted to your charts like a junkie, you are going to self-sabotage your own trades and probably end up losing a lot of money in the process. We have to learn to let the market “do the work” and just forget about our trades for a while after they are live. The set and forget forex trading strategy is something that I stand by and that I implement in my own personal trading, because meddling in your trades after they are live is an emotional decision and thus it’s usually the wrong thing to do. Find anything to do except watch your charts after you enter a trade.

9. “I am not emotionally affected by my profits or losses”

Both losses and profits have the ability to induce emotional reactions in us. A loss can cause us to want to take ‘revenge’ on the market and try and ‘make back’ the money we just lost. A profit can cause us to become overly-confident or even euphoric, which can cause us to deviate from our trading plan and take a trade that is lower probability than what we normally would take. Either way, you have to always be on guard against making an emotional trade immediately after a trade closes out, whether it was a winner or a loser. The best thing to do is to simply remove yourself from the markets for 12 to 24 hours after any trade.

10. “I try to trade with the dominant daily trend as much as possible”

I know you’ve heard this before, and I know it’s very cliché, but it’s also very true; the trend is your friend. I am often amazed at how many emails I get from traders telling me they are losing money in the markets and simultaneously asking me to comment on the chart they’ve attached to the email that shows a counter-trend trade on the intra-day charts. The easiest way to make money in any financial market is and has always been trading with the dominant trend. There are times when trading counter-trend is warranted, but until you’ve mastered trend-trading you should forget about counter-trend trading. Remember, don’t fight the dominant daily chart trend, instead, capitalize on it and ride the momentum until it ends.

11. “Instead of over-trading, I will be patient and let trading opportunities present themselves to me”

Don’t trade just because you feel like you have to or you want to…make sure there’s a real reason to do so and never trade when your pre-defined trading edge is not present. The downfall of most traders is over-trading, because most traders simply don’t have enough patience to trade forex like a sniper and not a machine gunner.

12. “I’m a professional trader and thus I will not engage in gambling my money in the markets”

Gamblers make random bets in casinos or elsewhere, and traders who don’t have trading plans or who don’t follow their trading edge are also gamblers. It’s really easy to click your mouse and put a trade on and hope to get lucky, kind of like pulling the arm of the slot machine at a casino. The difference is that you can actually develop and implement a high-probability trading edge like price action strategies when trading the markets. So, it’s up to you if you want to be a gambler or a trader.

13. “I will not interfere with my trades without just cause”

This one is similar to number 8, but it’s so important I wanted to touch on it again. Interfering with trades is usually an emotional reaction born out of risking too much or over-trading, both of which cause you to become overly attached to any one trade, which in turn causes you to over-analyze your trades and meddle with them once they are live. There are times when there’s just cause to interfere with your trades, such as a giant pin bar reversal that forms counter to your position, or some other opposing price action. However these instances are rare and it takes time and effort to develop your discretionary trading sense to the point where you can “effectively interfere” in your trades.

14. “News and fundamentals will not influence my trading decisions”

Traders who fall into the temptation to over-analyze the thousands of Forex news variables that occur each day, usually end up losing their trading accounts pretty quickly. All market variables are reflected via the natural price movement of the market, so by analyzing and trying to “figure out” what’s going to happen by reading economic news or watching CNBC you’re simply adding unnecessary and confusing variables to your trading approach.

15. “I am happy to take a profit and I will not be greedy”

Take your profits when your targets get hit, don’t change targets in an effort to try and get “just a little bit more” profit…These attempts to get a “little more profit” are usually in vain, and they usually lead to you letting a winning trade turn into a losing trade. Traders with smaller accounts especially need to take logical profits as they come, in order to build their accounts up and their confidence. If you get a 1 to 1.5 or 1 to 2 risk reward, there’s nothing wrong with taking the money off the table. Don’t fall into the trap of hoping that every trade you take goes on a parabolic run in your favor, the markets ebb and flow, meaning they don’t go in straight lines for very long.

16. “I invest in my trading education & myself”

Investing in your own education is paramount to success in any field. Forex trading is no different; whether it’s a book on trading psychology or the knowledge of an experienced Forex trading coach, learning something each day to make yourself a better trader will only improve your edge in the markets.

17. “I believe in my trading strategy completely and whole heartedly”

It’s critical to your trading success that you learn and trade with a strategy that’s proven and that you personally enjoy trading with. You have to follow it without deviation by remembering the fact that one loss does not negate the whole trading strategy. Don’t jump from one strategy or system to the next just because you stumble upon a few losing trades; losing trades are a natural part of any trading method. The key lies in losing trades properly and making sure you are trading with a strategy that is both simple and effective, like price action.

I trust that you’ve learned something from today’s article and I hope you write down or print out the above daily affirmations and read them out loud to yourself every day before analyzing the markets. Eventually, they will become cemented into your thinking and will thus turn into a habitual part of your trading routine. At that point, you will have transformed yourself from a losing trader to a successful and confident one.

Remember To Leave Your Comments – Today I would like all of my readers to comment & tell me how you plan to use these new powerful skills to improve your trading or your life, I want to hear from you.

  49. Lucian Thomas

    I’ve been trading for a little over 5 years and have only now come to realise that trading is more psychology than skills or trading strategy. You MUST be mentally prepared for the challenge above everything else.

    As simple as repeating to yourself some of these daily affirmations will make a big difference in one trading approach.

  50. vincent foo

    Hi Nial,
    great advice. certainly a good set of rules to follows. i miss most of such rules.

  52. Peter

    Thanks so much Nial. Although I’m not a forex trader I am a full time Futures trader. I have 240 live trades under my belt with a 50.84% average. Your articles have helped me greatly the last 2 weeks. Your article on the bull and bear traps have made me $650 yesterday. I knew what they where I just didn’t understand the why of it. You explain things very clearly.

    I am going to purchase your trading course I am sure there will be information in it that I can use to trade the futures market. Thanks again.

  53. Roger

  58. Enchev

    Thank you very much !

  59. fauzi

    well, your material this day excellent. its cover the basic items for everyone out there including me to become a very succesfull traders. what you had told were mistake that we all doing in trading time to time. its quiet diffcult to restrain ourself from doing bad things and follow the rule. its take time. the most important word for me is from napoleon hill you paste up there and your own word ” i’m a successful trader”. i will repeat and repeat it again and put deep in my heart and brain until i achieve my goal. thanks bos. i will put your word infront my laptop.

  60. Coyz

    Thanks Nial, this refreshing my mind.

  61. Jay

    This is great. My only suggestion is to keep the affirmations positive and avoid words like ‘not’. Ex. Instead of “I will not trade emotionally” say – “I will trade with discipline and rational expectations.”

  62. Patrick Adejoh

    I just took a couple of screenshots of this article. I’ll keep reading on a daily basis. Your articles have helped me to improve my trading psychology.
    Thanks Nial.

  64. olivia

    Hi Neill

    Thank you so much for this! I think most traders when they started out have fallen into some of these traps you’ve pointed out, myself included. Just to believe that I’m a good and successful trader is already a great start!

  65. Dr. Hyun

    Great advice as well as affirmations. Thanks.

  84. kiptanui

    Nial, Undoubtedly I believe you are the only fx Holy Grail I have come across.

    Daily Affirmations Will Improve
    Your Trading not only summarizes and accentuates the importance but also acts as a reminder of most of LTTTM teachings.

    Thanks a lot!

  85. Pantelis

    Nial as always your thoughts and actions give that extra in my(our) thought and actions..One by one all the points are going straight to the point(what ever is that point)..Personally i just change the direction and the numbersof that affirmations according to my character and results..The less is always better,no use is dissaster…….So what i get for your article is the way….Looking/searching the future,evaluate the past and create the present with actions…The last one its in our responsibilty……So if i can say a single point i will say….”You will never feel 100% sure but you must trust 200% your actions”………And trading is part of life not the whole life..Thanks again for the coaching.

  86. DannyK

    Nial, I have always struggled with a positive mental attitude. I tend toward pessimism, even despair. Your course has been a real game-changer! I have read these affirmations out loud over and over, and I have been listening to Napolean Hill on youtube. What a difference it’s made! I can’t tell you how grateful I am for Learntotradethemarket.com. My trading is coming along nicely, but it’s the broader effect on my daily life that really inspires me. Thank you so much for this excellent school. My goal is to become a professional coffee shop trader – happy, successful, and free! Thanks again, DannyK

  87. David Thackrah

    Slow ahead together is the only tenet. Use a Filter Checklist on every trade. Still not sure ? Don’t.

  88. Ludmila

    Totally agree with every golden word.

    Thank you Nial.

  89. Brian ostergaard

    Hello Nial, so true… I really enjoy following you and your articles. Keep it simple…

  90. Jared

    Great Article Nial, i enjoy it.

  91. Happy Nizar

    hi Nial.. i’m trying to find when exactly you write this article. i’ve been about two months visit your page every single day and read all of your newest article.
    I think this article act as the summary of all your lessons. trading mostly is not about make money, but how we manage ourself, our emotion. I actualy have broke my account twice by this year. but I do still believe that i could make change to my trading. I have reviewed my trading history and found that my weakness is i can’t be patient to wait. Your lesson today give me an insight how to manage my emotions, not how to make a ‘fast n easy’ money.

  92. Luca

    Every time I read this article, and trading plan, I realize every day more and more the power of these

    statements are if you read aloud every day in the morning and at night before going to bed

    the power of good habits together with the capacity to influence the subconscious = success

    thanks a lot

  93. Tony Echekam

    Those affirmation are splendid and i intend rehearsing as a song in other to achieve my forex dreams.Thank you and God bless Fuller’s.

    Good article Nial!!

    I always get many useful advice from your articles.

  99. Leon

    When you loose an account after racing back to recover losses and make stupid emotional decisions you will quickly understand how valuable it is to have daily affirmations before you trade. Never say you will not repeat your mistakes. Rather affirm why you should not.

    Great tips.

  100. Tom Kissack

    Just one word in response to the above – Wonderful !!

  101. Stephen Gibson

    Your affirmations list is perfect 4 my belief system and needs. I am an NLP practitioner.
    May I have permission to use your list with my clients. I would use only with proper attribution citation.

  102. yusof yaacob

    Excellent article. Sound simple but difficult to follow especially when you are in front of chart and your trade is losing. But no other options to take but to follow your commandments if one want to succeed in trading.Good work Nial.

  114. Dainis

    Thanks Nial, I have bookmarked this lesson to read it even more than 2 times, because I often forget some of those affirmations.

  115. Bluewest

    “I am not emotionally affected by my profits or losses”!!
    This is the hardest part for me now, i will try to overcome it with my max effort!
    Thanks Nial.

  116. RYaris

    Thanks Nial, great stuff!
    I am using similar affirmations in my daily life and I feel so much happier and more successful since I started doing it, it definitely works! I am going to add this to my trading plan.

  117. Fasih Rajput

    Hi Nial,
    Love to read again and again.Great tip,many thank.

  118. Greg

    Hi Nial,
    The affirmations are full of good inspirational advice and I will try my best to have the discipline to act on this information.
    Many thanks for putting them together.

  119. jennifer

    Nial,its unbelievable.At the beginning of last year, i was reading THINK AND GROW RICH and around the same time a mother to a child i was nursing introduced me to forex trading and i was attracted to it as a magnet,what the mind of a man can concieve and believe, it achieves, today am a forex trader, on a journey of becoming a forex trader. thank you for the post

  120. IT nerd

    A good tip for setting up a daily affirmation: on the Windows platform, set up a scheduled task to display a message. That message should contain all 17 headers. So everyday at a certain, you can get a popup on your computer displaying the affirmations. If you read it everyday, soon it will be hardwired into you. Thanks.

  121. water

    YES ,Today I learnt a Very good lesson.I will try sincerely and religiously to obey and practice it on a regular basis.

  122. tony rahme

    good day Nial,
    u are absolutely correct in what u say about affirmations.
    i have done a MIND POWER course and that coach also strongly hits on affirmations.
    the hardest part of affirmations is actually doing them.
    one must do affirmations daily for a minimum of 21 days for them to start taking effect and the hardest part like i say is actually doing it daily.
    many tks for ur gr8 posts.

  123. gabstar

    what a wonderful topic only GOD can reward u 4 ur wonderful work once i say thanks 4 ur powerful article

  124. Mas

    Fantastic, I started My affirmation Dec 26. Relaxing with deep breathing 10 times and then thinking im a good trader and make 3 orders. Order nr 1 got SL -, order 3 and 3 got +. Not losses or winning only + or -. This thinking take bad thaught out from me. After this I thinnk thaat everything works as I was planning because I followed my plan”.
    I have to use this until I feel comfortablle with my thinking and get rid of bad thinking! HAppy new year!

  125. Kanz

    This is a great article. Success is only achievable if you believe. I personally think affirmation 17 is of paramount importance.. This belief can only be true if we went through the necessary “education” in trading. After which, all we need is to believe and execute the strategies with confidence. Lose and win with confidence that the edge of our strategy will ring true in the long run.

  126. Glenn McCall

    All of the affirmations mentioned by Nial I have used successfully.
    It’s nice to see some old school practices re-surface.
    History repeats itself! Over and over again.

    Thanks Nial..

  127. Phil Leiba

    I knew there was something that attracted me to this site, very powerful principles outlined here. Thanks again!

  128. Mark

    Aces, thanks Nial. Great thoughts to hold in one’s mind.

  129. Akhtar

    Bravo Nail! You are certainly making a difference in the life of many.

  130. David Hunter

    Just repeating these affirmations is not enough – in fact repeating that you are a successful trader when you are clearly not is counterproductive because you feel a fraud. I know because I’ve been there. However take affirmations a stage further and you can score tremendous benefits. You have to put everything in the past aside and mentally focus on “feelings” of success – forget the intellectual side of affirmations – you have to immerse yourself in how you feel when you apply the principles as outlined in the affirmation. I know that it sounds corny but “Fake it until you make it!” Apply the same principle to all the affirmations above for a week and you’ll be amazed at the difference. Do it for a month and you’ll be blown away. Just my 10 cents.

  131. Lisa Wuornos

    I wrote them all down. I plan on using them. Thanks, Nial!

  132. Michael Tottman

    Nial, Napoleon Hill is one of my all time heroes.
    What an amazing book Think and Grow Rich is.
    I will check out the videos with eager anticipation !

    Happy trading and thankyou for the great content as always.




  134. Les

    Just saying something over and over again is meaningless. Visualising the results of your affirmation as you embed them in your soul, works.

  135. QT Trinh

    All your acticles are the best. Every day from now I try to use them in my efforts to become a successful trader, to avoid my emotions from trading, this would be the key in the case of mine. Thank you so much

  136. Larry Hoover

    Nial and Readers (traders!):

    Cards and notes are fine and they work to remind us
    but I also like my little tape recorder
    about the size of a pack of smokes. I
    tape so many strategies, do’s and
    don’ts, affirmations etc. When your
    driving, shaving,eating alone, or have
    some spare time on your hands it’s so
    quick and easy to listen to some
    “goodies”. Listening 4-5 times or more
    really stamps it into the ‘ol
    unconscious. Works for me—you?

  137. Pavel

    Hi Nial,

    what I will do is writing these affirmations on cards and I will read them repeatedly during the day until they are burned into my brain.

    I want to also tell you what helps me in becoming better trader and human being. I try to concentrate all my energy only on things that I can change and have 100% under my control. So instead of concentrating on markets and on trades (winners or losers) I concentrate only on doing exactly what is in my trading plan as that is the only thing that is fully under my control.

    Myself – Present – Effort …. you don’t really need to concentrate on other things as these are the only ones that you have fully controlled.

    Happy trading.

  138. Richard Agustin

    Thanks Nial, I will incorporate it to my daily routine.
    God Bless us Always.

  139. Lorenz Manabat

    Thank you Nial for your knowledge.
    It’s funny how everything seems so simple but implementing them in your life takes so much dedication.
    I’ve learned that being a trader is a lifestyle and having daily affirmation will keep your mind on track.
    It’s a good to have a mentor like you.

  140. john

    As a beginning trader (and bonafide trading addict) I have found your articles and advice illuminating and will implement them into my trading immediately. Thank you for your efforts to repair traders like me.

  141. ololade

    I’ve met with different traders,you’re indeed a blessing to me and i’m sure to other serious-minded traders,very very insightful.Thank you and God grant you more wisdom

  142. Fred

  143. kunle

  144. naveen

    Thank you Nial.

    Earlier I used to watch the charts all the time. Now I have shifted to daily charts and checking few minutes only.

    I will print and read daily & follow these affirmations.

  145. petrikk786

    Hi Nial
    thank you very much for this info and for all the things you are doing on your site.
    Trading Nials’ Price Action methods on the Daily Chart paves the way for these affirmations to become true.about this idea of trading i like it most……

  146. Amy

    Hi Nial
    thank you very much for this info and for all the things you are doing on your site. I will use these affirmations because (as you said and many others) they work , but they work because a long time ago God’s word said: ‘For as he(men)thinks in his heart, so is he’! Pro 23:7

    Our thoughts influence our actions and our health as well. Therefore think positive!

    cao God bless you!


  147. Gil

    Very nice, Nial

    Sometimes i have problem with point 15. I’ll paste it on my screen.

    Thanks for everything.

  148. Sanjay

    I owe Nial so much that it is my duty to post here. Yes, affirmations are important and one will find success in trading if we can visualise, and affirm, everyday. Trading Nials’ Price Action methods on the Daily Chart paves the way for these affirmations to become true.

  149. Griff

    Excellent. Thanks Niall.

  150. Michal

    Hi Nial,

    great article indeed. That has already influenced my live the possitive way. I knew by then that I will achive something in my life one day but did not know what. Today I do know!! I will become a pro trader I am 100% sure. Having said that to achive that I have to work on points 8,9,10 and expecially no. 11. The rest I am ok with.

  151. Michael

    Another great article.

    Excellent work,thanks Nial.

  152. Mr. T

    Great Article!!!

    I was falling into the technical indicators limbo and I was getting extremely emotional on my trades. Yeap, winning trades turned losers.

    Still Working on Money Management discipline.


  153. Harold

    Thanks Nial,

    These would be good to read at least once a week. Number four is my favorite. Once I started a forex trading journal my trading success took off. I can’t say enough how right you were about this. Thanks :)

  154. Bruce

    Excellent! I’ll read this everyday from now on. Thanks for your excellent articles.

  155. Ashraf

    I think when 100% flow your tips,he shall be successful 100%.Thank for shear your experiences.Hope to here you soon. With regards,

  156. Kevin Jones

    “Dont be greedy” – Golden saying. I think this should be on the top. I believe that decipline starts from that point.

  157. joe vitale

    The list makes a lot of sense and I must agree with others, a good reminder for all of us as well. Positive affirmations and repeating it daily will make a huge difference and it will surely contribute to the way we view ourselves and how we can do for success.

  158. Ladybug

    Thanks for a great reminder, Nial. I had been using a few affirmations but I just said them from memory, I had not written them down. Of course, I gradually ceased to say them and my trading lapsed as well. I will now print these out and have them on my wall to remind myself to say them out loud everyday.
    Thanks again for all your lessons.

  159. Sanjay

    I read this a few days ago when it was first posted, and I was like “yeh yeh yeh.. ive read it all…” Then went back to being emotional that day.

    Then today I came across this artical again today…and im glad I did. I have added a new page to my trade plan “Daily Affirmations” and I have also now started a journal.

    Only recently have a I TRULY realised the misery I experience when I over trade and over analyse. But im scared ill forget…and go back to my ways. Daily affirmations and a journal will keep me on track, this artical has really drilled it in.

    Thanks Nial, for continually reminding us members of these lessons.


  160. ranier

    I’m truly inspired every time I received emails from you Nial. You’re truly a gifted one and I thank you for your generous efforts to continuously share among us traders your fruitful ideas that somehow we could incorporate in our trading endeavors. This lesson inspires me to be as successful as you. Thank you.

  161. Filopastry

    Still the best affirmation is:
    “You gotta know when to hold’em, know when to foldem, know when to walk away , know when to run,”
    so true of trading, its all about self control and Im still learning it.
    Thanks Kenny Rogers

  162. Francisco

    You are absolutely right, I have read the napoleon hill book about three years ago, and it has been very helpfull, it change the way I see things in life, but as you put it on trading it makes a lot of sense too, I want to thank you for taking the time to write this kind of articles. You are a great man indeed

  163. jscmal

    I love this post. thanks Nial

  164. Dennis S from Orlando

    Hi Nial, as always great advise. There is one part of trading that I have not seen you talk about, That is matching a strong currency with a weak currency, example right now the JPY is very strong and the NZD and EUR are very weak, Using your advise in the use of Price Action trading a long with matching the strongest currency to the weekest has turned my account positive. Would love to here your take on this subject. Thanks!

  165. Todor

    I already know how we attracted each other. We have something in common – thinking. Congratulations, Nial, my admires! I’ve already had my list and I spend certain times of the day to write and say my affirmations. It coincides 50% with yours and does a terrific difference on my way of becoming a better (one day a professional) trader and person. As to Napoleon Hill, his and other motivational coaches’ books lying on my library shelves are my pride and treasure. Thank you, Nial, once again, very, very much!

  166. jrf666


    Great article. I’ve got the ‘Think and Grow Rich’ book and I’ve just started reading it. The daily affirmations have been printed and are now on display in my office/trading HQ for review daily!

    Thanx again

  172. James

    All so very true and history tells us that this is not something new but something that has been around since the beginning of time, and all great people from athletes to leaders use. So many great minds have preached these words which can be sumed up and quoted from Earl Nightingale
    “believe and succeed”.
    Anyone who is interested just youtube Earl Nightingale “Strangest Secret in the World” as Earl says “if you really understand what I am saying, it will change your life for the better” and I agree with Mr. Nighingale. Also Wallace Wattles “The Science of Getting Rich” expands on this.
    To adhere to Nials wishes of his memebers; my daily affirmation started after going through Nials course, I started it about a month ago, on my drive to work and home I say aloud “I am a successful forex trader”
    “the universe is at your command”

  173. George

    Read,read and read again………

  174. Juliana

    These affirmations will form part of my daily routine. Thanks for another great article!

  205. hart

    Thank you for showing exactly what affirmations are relevant for trading success.
    Every programme talks about affirmation but does little to show what particular affirmations to use.
    What you have done is given us a true to life example of affirmations to follow. Yes you have shown how to do it.
    Thank you

  206. Tom

    Thanks for that motivation, Will post it on my wall and read it each time before analyzing any trades each day. Above all, I will trade what I see on my daily chart and not what I think should happen. Buying ur course was one of the best decision I did for myself.

  207. Helen

    Thanks Nial,really great article.

  214. xback

    thanks Nial..

  215. soumanou mamadou

    Thanks so much Nial for your help, but I suggest you to change “negatives” phrases into “positives” ones; example: “I will only take trades that give reward clearly outweighs my risk” instead of “I will never take a trade unless my reward clearly outweighs my risk”.
    Have a good weekend

  216. Steve (UK)

    Another great article. I’d like to add one of my own affirmations if I may and it’s this. “I NEVER have LOSING trades; they are merely a NORMAL EXPENSE of my trading business.”

  217. Resh

    Another excellent article, this is very important to trading and like you Napoleon Hill is one of my favourite authors, and his book and teachings are amazing, just like your course.
    Thanks Again.

  218. henry

    im sure u have saved many people from blowing their trading account.Remain blessed.

  219. Hans

    Most trading advisors are failed traders, not to mention analysts. So learning from them is miss-leading, because they don’t know what they are doing. But Nial, you are different, because you show us day after day how to do it in a real market conditions realtime.

  220. Martin

    Thank you very much
    I have it in front of my desk all the time to read it when i get before the pc.

  221. Josef

    Thank You very much Nial and I believe I will be part of your life time forex course.

I have very limited funds and have always wanted to do something like this as it is interesting but i dont even know what to click and how to figire it out…. do you have any reading material or videos that can help someone thats illiterate in this type of stuff?

  230. Rene

    very sound advice, as always. thank you

    Hi Nail,

    This is the gist of trading and life, you have put it precisely, there is no doubt of whatsoever, if this is followed deligently success is guaranteed. Hope many traders life would be changing by your articles. Knowing is different from doing, let me pledge to do it.. Great job, well done.

    Thanks Again..

  233. Allan

    I just printed these out and posted on my wall. I will read these aloud at the start and end of each trading day. Once again, your timing is impeccable Nial!

    Cheers mate!

  234. Hennie Roos

    As a novice I aspire to learn from the masters as much as possible. This in my opinion should be the commandments of trading. Thanks Nial!

  235. Dennis

    Thank you for your encouraging thoughts and principles, Nial.

  236. Yomi

    An incisive and helpful article as always. As a warning to other traders, I violated item 14 above and got burned! Only good thing is it was for a small amount. Also, getting the ebook copy of “Think and Grow Rich ” is easy and free. I have already downloaded it and plan to study it.

    Thanks once again Nial.


  237. weish

    thanks Nail, learn a lot and realize that i make many mistake on forex. Thanks!

  238. Dave

    Hi Nial,
    Thanks for this! I will put this in my day planner and read this every day before I review the markets.

  239. Charley

    Thanks Nial,
    We spend too much time trying to work on the trading side of our edge that we forget the mental side….Thanks

  240. nizar roy

    About time to implement THE Daily Affirmations, thank you.

  241. shailesh

    Thanks Nail, I have learnt lot from your website. I will follow your Education. GOD BLESS YOU.

  242. Stephen

    I see in you what I desire to become in trading in the first instance. I have come to know by experience that trading forex reveals your true self to you. these kind of lessons help a lot to change that picture especially when your results have not been what you want. You are a success coach not just a successful trader.
    Good Job as always

    Hi Nial, hi traders
    What an amazing article
    I don’t know about you fellow traders but I’m going to listen to Nial.
    I’m going to print the 17 declarations and read them out loud daily before
    looking at market. I knew I needed to utilize declarations as a trader
    and Nial you have made it easier then ever to do that so thank you.
    Also thanks for your motivational litarature recommendation.

  245. Nikolay Kolev

    Hi Nial,
    I have been reading all of your articles up to now and will say today you compressed all of them in one. Every word here is truth. As a beginner, I had to suffer a lot when I have been violating the rules you defined (like trading on low frames, catching bad defined setups and so on), and it was reflecting my account.Now I follow only the daily chart and I do it better.
    Great article!
    Thank you!

  246. Francesca

    Hi Nail,
    Thank you for making your mentoring a lifetime access because sometimes it takes more than 5 years to get it. Some people throw a trading strategy out at you with outragious prices and they are gone leaving you to figure it out yourself but you are there always answering all questions and coming up with updates and all ways possible to help your students get it. I have been with you so long but still not able to put it together yet. I hope this helps me move beyond loosing to profiting.

  247. forex.ng

    another very good articles,thanks nial

  248. ernie vroom

    This lesson is just another reason why you are so good at what you do. This and lessons like it should be the first ones that traders take. Not the last when everything else fails.

    Your course should be required reading

  249. victor

    Thank a lot for reminding me what i was suppose to be doing all this period, more power to your elbows

  250. Terhile

    I have made a copy of this affirmations, I gonna stick them close to my trading station.

    Thanks Nial, really great article!!!!!

  251. Charles

    Another excellent article Nial! Very useful to any trader, regardless of how long they’ve been in the markets.

  252. Sonja

    Hey Nial,
    thank you so much for your great articles! I will print these affirmations and have them on my wall too. Finding your website and joining your coure is the best thing that could have happend to me.
    I especially like the first quote from Napoleon Hill.
    And you, Nial, are such a positive and encouraging person and make us really understand, that if you just try hard enough and long enough for what you really want, you will be succesfull. Don´t let yourself be pushed back by any failure, be positive and believe in what you are doing! I guess thats why I´m here now…

  253. Akemu Efe Napoleon

    You are doing a great work. i guess many young traders in developing countries like me would have love to join your forum if not for the fees attached. However, u re the best i have met.

    Nail, you will not believe this, but i have been studying the Think and grow Rich book, and the law of attraction to help me with my trading and personal goals etc… I totally agree with you. Well done mate.

  259. Suzanne Lane

    Brilliant Nial,

    I am already currently reading Napolean Hill’s book ‘Think and Grow Rich’ and would recommend it to anyone. Another (more recent) great book that incorporates the law of attraction is ‘Excuse me your life is waiting’ by Lyn Grabbhorn.

  271. Neil

    Hi Nial, I’ve recently come across your website and trading strategies and am really impressed. This article highlights the importance of having the right mindset, following rules and being disciplined, all of which are key to successful trading. Thanks for putting it together and keep up the good work!

  272. Anthony

    Just having kind of a traders-dip, reading your article gives me confidence again.. Man, you know how to motivate people! Thanks Nial.

  273. Bob

    Excellent reading.

  274. Neil

    Excellent list there Nial, thanks. Indeed, Napolean Hill is one of the greats for me too. His book is littered with marvellous statements. It is also useful to understand his personal story in that it took many, many years and countless disappointments until he became successful himself. His path was not easy however serves as an excellent example of how one should NEVER GIVE UP!

  275. Pst. Praise

    Your articles are always refreshing to my soul. it is a strong guidelines and a MUST daily read for successful would-be traders. Kudos’

  276. Bill Johnson

    Hi Nial, I am a firm believer in positive thinking and affirmation of your goals / ongoing actions. Yes it works, I will apply these with my others. Thanks again.

  277. Mike


    thanks very much for this, I am going to type it up, print it off and laminate it so I can refer to it every trading day.

    I really enjoy your articles and continuing trading education.



  278. Desiree

  284. Suchi

    Hi, Nial!
    Very nice article, I like it very much. I have added all the affirmations to my trading plan, because it is nicely formulated. Even if they are “in my head” and always trying to keep them, it is much better to see it written and read it everyday, e.g. before switching on my platform.

  285. Liam Hart

    Excellent material Nial, will be using these on a daily basis for sure! The affirmation like meditation, is a very powerful tool.

    • BRP

      AWESOME Nial.

      Thank you so much for such a candid detailed explanation. You are amazing!

      Defnately will write down these 17 affirmation and post in on my wall; and read them all loud every day starting now. I will become as successful Fx trader as you are soon =)
