Would you believe that Systems On The Road blog has been for over 3 years for you already?

Three years and over 100 posts of inspiration, motivation, and practical trading tips and tricks!

That is some serious commitment to thousands of traders; I’m doing my best to inspire and help them to become better traders every 10 days.

But wait - it is going to get even better now!

Just recently, I was going through some questions I received via email, and I started thinking:

How about answering your questions in the form of short videos?

So, here we are!

Now - not all the videos will be just about answering your questions, many of them will still be about sharing my trading experiences and insights.

But I am pretty sure that videos will be a new, cooler format for many of you!

So, the first video is here:

And what I’m going to talk about in this one?

About the true motivation behind your trading.

Because the truth is, if your only motivation to trade is a financial reward, then you will probably, with all honesty, not get far!

The trading industry is very competitive, and you need to keep learning.

It's also a journey of self-discovery, as you will get to know yourself even better.

So, in this video, I’ll share with you:

  • Why knowing your ‘trading WHY’ truly matters.

  • Why the right ‘WHY’ can help you overcome many trading hurdles and challenges.

  • What are the most common and generally good ‘WHYs’ to follow to become a successful trader.

  • Why trading is a journey you can benefit from much more than just financially.

So, play it now - and enjoy it! :-)

Happy trading,
