Introduction: Why I Teach Transformation through Trading

[vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1547972788442{margin-right: 20px !important;margin-left: 20px !important;}”][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_message message_box_color=”success” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-quote-left” css=”.vc_custom_1547972833478{margin-right: 25px !important;margin-left: 25px !important;}”]I’ve been coaching traders for nearly three decades. Occasionally, someone asks, ‘If Van Tharp is such a good trading coach, why doesn’t he just trade?’ To me it’s an odd question because I believe my mission has always been to help people transform for the better; I just happen to do it through a trading metaphor. Being a trading coach is how I trade. I trade my time and energy for an investment in others. Their transformation is my payoff. I thrive on the comments I get about how I’ve changed peoples’ lives.

Your Transformation is my Investment, by Van K. Tharp

[/vc_message][vc_custom_heading text=”The Payoff from my Trades” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]For example, here are a few of the comments I’ve gotten recently:

Your program is not only helping me in my trading, but also in my business. I’ve been much more peaceful and open ever since I starting working with you. It’s helped me with everything I do in my daily life. — H.T., Atlanta, GA

Before taking your workshop, my life was filled with wants. After the class, I am more in line with my inner Self, and I just want to be. In addition, prior to the workshop, I scored 20 on the Happiness Test. After taking two classes, my score increased by 63 points to a nearly perfect 83. Thank you. — T.H., Franklin, VA

It’s difficult to say how big an impact you ’ve had on my life because you made the change so deep that everything has changed. This is a beautiful gift, and I want to thank you very much for everything you have done for me! . . . I ’m not alone anymore, and I’ve found the path of true happiness. I know what my life ’s mission is and what I have to do to follow my bliss. I feel like I ’m starting a new life again.—D.M., Quebec City, Canada

After attending your workshop, I came back feeling like any dream was possible. When I started applying the techniques to my sales job, I had my biggest commission month in my 27-year sales career. I made $200,000 for a month’s work—more than triple my prior career high. Now I can’t wait to start manifesting in my new trading career.—E.M., Washington, DC

To make a long story short, my life changed from a chance meeting with a soft-spoken teddy bear named Van Tharp. I jumped from the life path of financial fear to a life path of fun and adventure. The changes I have gone through have improved both my marriage and my ability to think.—J.G., VA

Such comments about transformation are the engine that makes The Van Tharp Institute (VTI) run, because, as I ’ve said, our mission is one of transformation through a trading metaphor. I thrive on it and my staff thrives on it. However, make no mistake, this kind of transformation will undoubtedly improve your trading.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator el_width=”50″][vc_custom_heading text=”Levels of Transformation” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]There are three levels of transformations traders need to make:

(1) transformation of the trading game;

(2) psychological transformation around beliefs, stuck feelings and conflicting parts; and,

(3) transformations to your consciousness, or in other words to the degree of awareness about the matrix of beliefs in which you operate.

Each level is critical to your success as a trader.

After the three levels of transformation became clear to me, I much better understood what people need most to succeed. Trading Beyond the Matrix is designed to convey that information, with a number of chapters written about each level of transformation.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator el_width=”50″][vc_custom_heading text=”Why I Wrote the Book on Trading Transformation” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]When I first saw the movie, The Matrix, I loved it, not for the action but for the metaphor. In fact, I recently watched it again and discovered that I didn’t remember a lot of the details, just the metaphor.

The metaphor suggests that we are all programmed. We live in a world of illusion shaped by our programming. And at some level, we seem to know that, and we seem to know that there is something better.

Right now, this is not a movie. As you read this online course, you are beginning to realize that you have a choice. You can take the blue pill and go back into a comfortable sleep where nothing changes, or you take the red pill and, as Morpheus says in the movie, “see how deep the rabbit hole goes.” In this context, you will see how you can change not just your trading, but your whole life, for the better. This is a bold statement, but I am confident it is true.

Read the book, do what it suggests, and your life will change forever.

Let me explain how:

We really are so programmed by our beliefs, which we get from our parents, our churches, our schooling, our friends, and the media. What we believe tends to shape our reality–our perception of our experiences. These beliefs are, to each of us, our very own personalized Matrix. We ’ll explore that extensively in Chapter 7 of the book. However, once you take the red pill (hopefully this book, for you), you can begin to explore whether or not those beliefs are useful for functioning at a high level within the Matrix.

In the Matrix movie, Neo actually gets reprogrammed like a computer, but you can do the same thing by becoming aware of how your beliefs program you and whether or not that programming suits you. And as you start to do so, you begin to function as at a very high level within the Matrix. In the next three lessons, we will look a little more closely at the three levels of transformation.

After this course,  I’ll give you my transformation book at no charge. I want you to have this information. It’s that important.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”flash_right_sidebar”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
