"working with deep-seated beliefs is not as easy as most believe (pardon the pun).
it's one thing to work with what we think are our beliefs, the one's we are consciously aware of. but for many reasons, it is entirely different to work with deep, sub-conscious beliefs.
...first, most people have limited, at best, understanding of what their subconscious beliefs are. truly understanding one's deep-seated beliefs is a potentially difficult task for many. typically, the deeper the belief the more work is required to get at it. I'm not going to get into specifics here, but will say that it requires extreme self-honesty, open-mindedness, willingness to be uncomfortable when identifying the beliefs, and a host of other 'process' oriented issues. the bottom line is that most of the beliefs that people find maladaptive or wish to change are usually very deep-seated and not easily worked with. subsequently, there is the question of how to effectively alter or replace those beliefs in a way that is sustainable over time.
over the years I've seen more and more people become 'experts' after reading a book or two, or becoming 'certified' in a particular system of belief change. there is nothing inherently wrong with that. the problem is that many of these systems don't lead to lasting, sustained change. adding new beliefs on top of a foundation of opposing deep-seated subconscious beliefs is generally not a good recipe for lasting change. like building or re-modeling a house, you can't ignore the foundation (which is usually underground and not seen).
now, add the fact that as traders in the market our judgments are constantly being tested as we face constant uncertainty. it's no wonder why 'altering beliefs' is so difficult for traders. I decided to work with traders because there is a huge need for experienced, knowledgeable guidance in this area.
on the front page of my web site, it reads: 'Our beliefs, expectations, and emotions act as a filter on our perception of the market, our filter projects a structure onto price action that forms the basis for trade entries and exits. We don't see the market itself, we see our projection. It is simply human nature to see things through our own personal filter.'
if you wish to work with your beliefs, please consider doing so in a comprehensive manner that will lead to lasting change. otherwise, you may end up like the majority of folks who embark on a path to alter their beliefs only to see short-term benefits. in fact, based on what I've seen over many years, most people are unable to maintain lasting change for more then 3 months, and usually much shorter, as in weeks. it's no coincidence that many traders can perform well for a period of time, weeks, maybe a few months, but end up right back where they started, or even worse sometimes. I have seen people successfully change their beliefs on their own, without guidance, but it requires herculean strength, a deep, personal resonance with the particular method or approach (meaningfulness), and an unwavering commitment. guidance from an experienced professional can save time, energy, and money."

11'16 Mexico's murderous alliance of state, the army and the drug cartels | The Guardian ARTICLE
When the cycle comes around to commemorate the spectacles of 1968 in Chicago, Paris or Prague, few people outside Mexico remember that the real bloodbath that year was in Mexico City.
It is not the hands wearing black gloves held aloft by American athletes at the Olympics that year, but the white gloves of the army's Olympia Brigade, which fired upon crowds of students and families in the Tlatelolco district of Mexico City, killing 350 people in cold blood, that will be recalled.
This was the quintessence of political violence in Mexico for decades, between the state and the leftist opposition. These were the faultlines which detonated the Zapatista movement in Chiapas during the mid-1990s, the mobilisation of workers in wretched sweatshops along the US border, the near rise to power of leftist López Obrador in his 2006 electoral bid.
Only since that year has ideological violence been subsumed by the savagery of the war of narco cartels between each other and, so it is claimed, the state.
Into this narrative enters the likelihood – now confirmed by both the attorney general of Guerrero state, Iñaki Blanco, and the Guerreros Unidos cartel in his territory – that some, if not all, the students arrested during the Ayotzinapa protest were handed over by police to the cartel for summary execution. Inevitably the barbaric procedure invokes protest in the streets that echoes 1968: crowds occupy the famous Zócalo plaza and set the door of President Peña Nieto's national palace ablaze.
But the significance of these savage executions – bodies tortured and torched or dumped in a river – lies in the entwining of ideological and narco violence: two nightmares, two perfidious calculations, in one.
Mexican governments – under presidents Vicente Fox, Felipe Calderón and now Peña Nieto – have tried to present their war against the narcos as a state apparatus against organised crime. This is also the bleat of the US as it provides "aid" for the "war on drugs" while also exulting in the opportunities for "investment" in Mexico. Britain also blathers on about "trading opportunities" with Mexico and support for its fight against crime. We must buy the lie, continue the pretence.
However, for a long time the world's bravest reporters have challenged this version of events. Mexico's leading writers, Lydia Cacho and Anabel Hernández, received serial death threats for proving that the authorities – politicians, police, army – are synonymous with the cartels or in league with them.
Others on the left have always asked, to general derision: where are the armed forces in all this? What connects the state violence of the 1960s to the narco war? The late Charles Bowden, America's great writer on the border, wrote of "the biggest cartel in Mexico: the Mexican army." Julián Cardona, the great chronicler and photographer of the narco war in Ciudad Juárez during its grim primacy as the world's most dangerous city, always said that the same hand of state behind violence against the left was at play among the drug lords.
Lesser writers on Mexico, including myself, have insisted that the line between legitimacy and criminality, upon which Mexico's international relations are based, is a fantasy, that the line between legality and illegality is a lie, not only within Mexico, but internationally, with regard to the laundering of the profits of crime.
The Mexican state, however, continued with such language as that of General Jorge Juárez Loera, commander of the 11th Military Region, who told a press conference in Chihuahua in 2008: "I would like to see the reporters change their articles and where they say 'one more murdered person' instead say, 'one less criminal'."
Now we can see the arguments advanced by Cacho and Hernández, Bowden and Cardona, utterly vindicated by, in their way, the most shocking of many appalling mass murders that have taken the death toll past 100,000 since 2006, with 20,000 missing. Shocking, because it is now brazenly clear that the Mexican state and cartel death squads are as one.
Until now perhaps the most poignantly innocent victims in any single massacre were 72 migrants from Central America summarily executed in 2010 for failure to pay added fees to their traffickers, probably the Zetas cartel. Now these young people are kidnapped from their village of Ayotzinapa, near the tourist resort of Acapulco, by police from nearby Iguala, apparently on instructions from the mayor, worried that a protest might spoil a public event hosted by his wife. That is now a capital offense in Mexico, as it was to protest in 1968. The difference is that the state need not trouble itself to be the executioner. Unlike the white-gloved fingers of the Olympia Brigade, hardened cartel torturers and hitmen now pull the trigger. For their services, the cartel can expect a handsome payment in kind – and they will get it.

11'28 The true story of "Kill the Messenger" VIDEO
"About 30 years ago, an Associated Press journalist broke a shocking story about the CIA. Ten years later, Gary Webb was working at the San Jose Mercury News when he uncovered the story, tucked away inside of a Senate subcommittee report from a few years before. The report showed that the CIA was very closely tied to illegal cocaine smuggling in 1985. Webb started out skeptical, but eventually published a series called 'Dark Alliance'. Then, Webb's life fell apart. One by one, news agencies started to pick him apart, trying their best to discredit his story. Eventually, his own employer piled on, and pushed him out. Webb went on to kill himself in 2004. Now, the Contra-Cocaine scandal is being retold in a new movie, called, 'Kill The Messenger', starring Jeremy Renner.
Webb is gone, but the AP reporter who first broke the story is still alive. Today, he's joining us to talk about the Lost History of the Cocaine Controversy. He's Robert Parry, editor of Consortium News.
