There’s probably nothing else that symbolizes the stock market quite like a stock ticker, that iconic electronic display of scrolling letters and numbers streaming rapidly across a screen. It’s enough to get any trader excited.
Back in the late 1800’s, the original machines ticked away as they printed out stock prices transmitted across telegraph lines onto a thin paper strip.
It didn’t take long before stock broker employees threw ticker tape out of their office windows in order to join the festivities during the dedication of the Statue of Liberty on Oct 29,1886, thus creating a celebratory effect by the snowstorm-like flurry and the ticker tape parade was born.
Common in the 1950’s, these parades become synonymous with celebration.
While ticker tape technology became obsolete in the 1960s, that doesn’t mean you can’t throw your own ticker tape parade to celebrate your successes.
Celebration is an important aspect when achieving your trading goals.
Those with limiting poverty mindsets often overlook this crucial step because they believe that they’ll celebrate once they’ve made it. Those
who have a wealth mindset know to stop and acknowledge accomplishing any milestone on the way to achieving your big trading dream is part of wealth building.
When you celebrate, endorphins are released inside your body and you feel incredible. When you accomplish something and don’t take the time to celebrate, you’re robbing yourself of an important feeling that reinforces your success. It’s like going on a long road trip and never visiting a rest stop.
Success begets more success, so it’s only natural to build upon existing momentum. Celebratory events not only reinforce the positive aspects of building a wealth mindset but positions you for more success.
