What Can Model Airplanes Teach You About Trading?

I was devastated!

I just couldn't believe it. I was 10 years old and my dreams were shattered. I never wanted to look at another model airplane again!

But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me start at the beginning.

When I was about 8 years old my older brother got interested in model airplanes. He had one that was connected to a control handle by fine wires. It flew around in circles whilst he stood in the middle controlling it.

[This was just before radio-controlled planes became popular -that's showing my age!]

And occasionally he would let me fly it.

The first time I flew his plane I was hooked!

I can still smell the fuel and hear the high pitched wine of the engine as I caused it to rise and dip as this fast moving object tried to pull my arm off!

I wanted one for myself. But I guess my parents thought I was too young. So it was some time later and after saving my pocket money for what seemed an eternity that I finally got to buy my own model aircraft kit.

I can remember going into the hobby shop and choosing which one to buy. And then rushing home to get started on putting it together.

I was so excited as I opened the box. And I got all the balsa wood and other materials out on the kitchen table and studied the plans.

The first task was to cut the sides of the body of the plane out of balsa wood. It was a big plane and so the body was quite long.

The first time I did this I was doing it freehand.

So I borrowed my Dad's big metal ruler. And I carefully cut along the line that I had marked on the wood.

But it was still crooked!

I tried once more and then I gave up. And I never made a model airplane again!

You see I wanted my first model plane to be perfect. But I realized that I couldn't achieve that. And so I gave up.

Years later I can still remember the frustration and disappointment that I felt at that moment.

Now what is the point of my telling you about my childhood traumas?

Novice traders often fall into the trap of wanting everything to be perfect before they place a trade. They want all their indicators to line up and they demand a perfect candlestick setup pattern.

Perfectionism has no place in the stock market.

Now, I'm not saying that you shouldn't try and be the best trader you can be.

But accept that you will never know all there is to know. And that you will have to make your trading decisions based on imperfect information.

And despite that realize that you don't need to be perfect to be successful.

Misguided perfectionism robbed me of pleasure as a 10 year old. Don't let it rob you of trading success.
