    Hi Rach: Fall is coming to little ol’ Canada.Can hockey be far behind ? i guess winter is over where you live !

    I think you’re saying it’s best to stick to your own game and make your plays in tennis or in trading and let the result happen. Bobby Jones ,my favorite golfer said he did better when he concentrated on shooting par instead of worrying about his opponent.For me,accepting my limitations on the course leads to better scores and similarly in the ‘pits’ .

    • Hi Robert

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We can learn a lot and improve how we control our minds and actions in competitive sport while under pressure to win.

      I see you’re a keen golfer. Sport is a fun way to improve your trading mentality.

      Cheers Rachel
