This is a guest post by Michael Lamothe from Mara Wealth on mindset, emotions, trading plans, and what it takes to be at your best. I met Mara several months ago and immediately knew that I wanted to get his message heard. While he has a passion for the stock market, his ability to communicate and discuss the mental and the emotional aspects of trading hit home. I am a firm believer that you cannot reach your full potential unless you can conquer both. Here's Michael posing some thoughtful questions for you to think about.
