Bulletproof Trading: Stress Teflon Unveiled

As a trader, it’s crucial to understand how to transform your interaction with pressure.

Stress is measured in two ways – the volcano method where everything explodes – or the erosion method where things just grind away. When you’re under stress, emotions can intensify, and decision-making can become less objective.

So, what strategies can you employ to change your relationship with stress?

In this compelling conversation, Louise Bedford and Luke Mathers combine insights from neuroscience and ancient wisdom with Luke’s extensive experience in coaching entrepreneurs and Olympians on harnessing the power of stress.

As the author of three bestselling books, including ‘Curious Habits’, ‘Stress Teflon’ and ‘Reset,’ Luke shares his distinctive approaches, emphasising why eliminating stress entirely may not be the solution.
