Denise Shull of the ReThink Group is a world-class decision coach who’s perhaps best known for being a real-world inspiration for the character of Wendy Rhoades on “Billions.” In this piece, she discusses how and why proper physical, mental, and emotional self-management for investors and traders can support better overall performance. She describes how physical wellbeing helps to sustain healthy mental and emotional functioning as well as effective decision making, which she calls the body-decision feedback loop. Shull also goes in-depth about why investors should start to integrate their emotions into their work and consider them an asset, and she gives advice on how to fully leverage them for success. She addresses how to predict other market participants’ emotions, why investors tend to reflect their expectations cultivated through their own unique life experiences back into the market, and the importance of always going “mark-to-market” on yourself.
