Krishna said in GITA

Attachment leads to desire Anger arises when desire is not fulfilled

This anger only creates confusion And only the works done indiscriminately in this illusion leads man to his doom.

The Gita also talks about a emotionally stable person - an emotionally stable person.

It is written in the Gita that attachment is the root of all miseries.

Imperfection is a trap that entraps a person in the materialistic world.

क्रोधाद्भवति संमोह: संमोहात्स्मृतिविभ्रम:।

स्मृतिभ्रंशाद्बुद्धिनाशो बुद्धिनाशात्प्रणश्यति॥

(द्वितीय अध्याय, श्लोक 63)

हिंदी अनुवाद: क्रोध से मनुष्य की मति मारी जाती है यानी मूढ़ हो जाती है जिससे स्मृति भ्रमित हो जाती है। स्मृति-भ्रम हो जाने से मनुष्य की बुद्धि नष्ट हो जाती है और बुद्धि का नाश हो जाने पर मनुष्य खुद का अपना ही नाश कर बैठता है।

English Translation:- Anger leads to clouding of judgment, which results in bewilderment of the memory. When the memory is bewildered, the intellect gets destroyed; and when the intellect is destroyed, one is ruined.

Solution :-

To avoid this, the only way is to remain detached from the fruits of karma. detachment from this karma is the path of emotional A person should perform his self-righteousness, his obligatory duties. and it should be done When he does it without expecting anything in return he becomes a karma yogi This is the first step towards making you emotionally stable.

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन । मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भुर्मा ते संगोऽस्त्वकर्मणि ॥

अर्थ: तेरा कर्म करने में ही अधिकार है, उसके फलों में कभी नहीं। इसलिए तू कर्मों के फल हेतु मत हो तथा तेरी कर्म न करने में भी आसक्ति न हो. 10) How we can use emotional intelligence in trading/investing

"Success in any endeavor is 80% psychology and 20% skill"-


in trading everyone talk about Emotional discipline but no one practices for that

Everyone has there own fear and greed , everyone try to control the market

No one try to understand/regulate or manage own emotion,

I would say only 2%-5% any strategy work in any trading system

95% need to understand /regulate and manage own feeling /own emotion

we can practices- self awareness-self regulation -self motivation

father of psychology- Arastu said in biography - Aristotle

They have mention in there book by practicing some technique ( specially buddha way of enlightenment-"vipassana")

you can know everything

you can know self awareness -self regulation - self motivation

Self awareness -

will help to understand own fear and greed and market fear and greed

Self regulation

will help a person's ability to control and redirect one's own disruptive impulses and moods-when everyone do so many trade without control they can manage there mind -train them and regulate then as they want

self motivation -

Passion to work for internal reasons(pleasure of doing something or desire to learn)

when market will send you in back side self motivation will help to comeback

Technique to self motivation -Auto suggestive mode 1) can talk in from of mirror

2) can write whatever want to do 3) keep yourself from socialization for sometime daily basis 4) talk to yourself

Empathy -will help to learn from self lesson and other's lesson

Note - Read the property of when you will practices for that what you will get form it

Step to became a emotional intelligence

step 1- Awareness About EI (knowledge about EI)

step 2-learn some technique physical exercise and mental exercise

step 3- practices that technique in regular basis

physical exercise and mental exercise will make you Emotionally intelligence

physical exercise- yoga /gym Etc.

mental exercise - Mediation

Remember if you practicing any technique in meditation - Do not work in focus (concertation) only also work in understand emotion /regulate /manage them.

focus (concertation) have own benefit/-but here is not a objective is focus only -also get Eradicated from miseries

intelligence people are also focused -but

being a emotional intelligence need to practices -self-righteousness, (karma yogi)

After practicing this you will get all property of emotional intelligence person


Practicing any exercise psychical and mental (mediation) is not only for one day

This is same like as we eat ( we eat regular basis)

This is same like we change cloth ( we change cloth in regular basis)

Practices mediation is not a one day two day process -this is continuous process Property of the self awareness -regulation and manage everything will come automatically By practicing by good technique
