"The T.A.D. Principle"

06/04/12 edit:

They now have an updated version - "tad - happiness revealed:  insights on thoughts, actions, and destiny". Here is what I wrote about it:

I've been telling my readers about "The T.A.D. Principle" for years, and I just finished reading the new version they released (you can get through it in about an hour). It is on a completely different level from the previous edition, and represents more of an exploration of the things we do that make us unhappy, and what we need to do to find happiness in ourselves as opposed to looking for it externally. If you purchased "The T.A.D. Principle" in the past, you get this new version free. If you have never explored "tad", I highly recommend you do - it could have a big impact on your outlook and your life, and it is well worth the effort.


original post:

I get a question every few weeks (including "Comments" yesterday) about "What is T.A.D.?", which has been at the end of my "Welcome" post since I started this blog.

It refers to "The T.A.D. Principle", which is something I first learned about many years ago from someone I worked with in the technology world. For those of you who are fans of self-improvement/self-empowerment material (and motivational thinking), it is probably the best resource I have ever encountered. If you are not a fan of these subjects, you should be - they have serious applications to your professional and personal life. I don't think you can be successful at any venture (including trading) until you learn to control your mind and what you think of yourself and everything else in general.

I highly recommend "The T.A.D. Principle". I have no doubt that anyone who pursues it will be very satisfied, and will receive numerous benefits that can help change their life for the better (as I have).

I agree, I am a big fan of the tad principle and have been using for about a year.

Have a good weekend!

I figured it was a fraction of the cost of a bad trade, so I would give it a shot!

I have not gotten the file yet, but once I have gone through it I will post my thoughts.

Very enlightening. Now I just have to apply it. I am a bit lazy, but it was very motivating so I plan to follow through.

I recommend it.

I stumbled across it at the end of last year. An excellent piece. It was great for me, and I dictated that my oldest son read it. It was very good for him, but I think it is time for a refresher! Thanks for the reminder.

Trader-X, thanks for the recommendation (The T.A.D. Principle).

It was a fast read, and full of GREAT stuff. I think the most critical thing for any of us to remember is that our thoughts are very powerful and can greatly affect the outcome of any of our activities.

I'll chime in - it is a great manual, and I put it ahead of Hill, Robbins, and Allen. Not only because it is a much shorter read, but because it spells out what you should do.

Like someone said earlier, it is a fraction of the cost of a bad trade, so invest a few dollars in your mind!

Have a good Sunday night.

Thanks to Trader-X, and thanks to everyone and their positive words. We are passionate about "The T.A.D. Principle" and feel that it can benefit almost everyone who studies and applies it.

All the best!

All the comments on the T.A.D. Principle are very positive, but what is it? Is it a manual? Is it a workbook? Even their website does not have a description of the principle or the process involved. Could someone give a better description of the program? I am interested, but I am also finding it difficult to know exactly what I am spending my $89 on.

Kevin, have you ever read any of the stuff by Norman Vincent Peale, Tony Robbins, etc? It is about how what you think dictates your success or failure, and how to get control of that process to meet your goals.

After reading your hype for a year, I finally decided to take advantage of the $5 Amazon gift kickback and get this. I have to say, it was worth it. A good way to get me thinking right for the end of 2006.

Thanks for the reco.
