In this episode I talk about something really personal and deep.
I had a gambling problem, which became a trading problem really quickly and early on in my career.
This is an area very few talk about, because it requires deep reflection, and the ability to view yourself as someone who can improve!
This can be tough for someone who truly believes “they can come back, if they just have one more shot”. Gamblers often value the chance to play more than money itself.
We discuss these topics and much more:
- Shocking science of gambling – it’s not about the money at all
- How gamblers disguise their problem with constant search for technical details
- How gambling could be ruining more than your trading, and impacting your entire life
- How to come to the realization that you have gambling tendencies
- 7 different ways I worked to resolve my gambling problem
