Hear me out. This isn’t what it looks like.
This isn’t like the gym membership specials, vitamin supplement discounts, and every other New Year’s resolution email you’ve gotten this week.
Think about how we’ve survived COVID-19 so far.
We learned very early on that it’s too overwhelming to think about what might happen in the next several years with this pandemic.
We’ve had to take this entire situation day by day.
Only after breaking it up into smaller chunks of time did quarantine, boredom, fear, and all other things 2020 become more manageable.
Your 2021 resolutions are the same way.
If you have 10 resolutions to achieve over the next 365 days, the odds are not in your favor.
That’s not to discourage you, nor a knock against you.
It applies to all of us.
So often, we fail to achieve all of our resolutions, because we start off with too many.
- Lose 50 pounds
- Get out of debt
- Start investing
- Read a book every week
- Start a business
Don’t get me wrong — they’re all great goals to have.
But there’s only so many hours in a day.
This isn’t a simple to-do list. These are some pretty big lifestyle changes. Especially if you haven’t seen a gym in 5 years, or you’ve been a big spender your entire life, or you have kids that you’re now teaching at home because of the pandemic.
If you get overwhelmed, you get stressed, which causes you to become discouraged and unfocused.
Next thing you know, it’s April and you’re miserable because you haven’t been able to stick to your laundry list of resolutions.
You have to approach these kinds of lifestyle changes the same way you’d eat an elephant: one bite at a time.
Break it up into small increments. Focus on two of your goals for the first six months of 2021.
Once you’ve dropped 20 pounds, you’ll feel and look better. Once you’ve gotten better at eating at home instead of spending $150 on Uber Eats every week, you’ll see your bank account beginning to grow.
You can then use those savings to start building your investment capital.
These quick wins will recharge you at the midway point of the year, making your other goals much more attainable for the last half of the year.
Trading is the same way. I’ve seen so many traders get overwhelmed and stressed out because of the volatility of the market… especially this year.
If you’re hyper focused on every single single penny as your valuations fluctuate daily, you’ll drive yourself crazy. You’ll never put down your phone or leave your trading desk, and that pattern will overwhelm and burn you out with trading quickly.
One of my goals when I started my trading journey was to book maximum profits while spending minimal time chained to my trading desk.
I’m proud to say that I am achieving that goal, and I want to help you do the same.
Here at Hawkeye, my goal is getting my members quick wins with a simple but profitable trading strategy that leaves you more time for the things that really matter.
Things like improving your health, spending more time with your family, or your hobbies, which may include reading a book each week.
So, for 2021, make the choice to do something different for yourself and your family.
You can start today.
Happy holidays, and I wish you the best in 2021!
