We are often so focused on the content of what we want to have, do or be, we miss the context of the story in which we live out our lives. Set the story first, and much of the rest often takes care of itself.

Even binary options traders are not immune to making New Year's resolutions, which may range from setting new goals for themselves to exploring new trading strategies to shoring up on their knowledge through a binary options tutorial.
But in a new blog post entitled "Welcome To 2014 – Five Steps To Make It Your Best Year Yet," The Binary Options Experts delves deeper, beyond making New Year’s resolutions, crafting business plans or even developing a personal plan. Rather than focusing on individual components or strategies for success, the new blog post challenges traders to look at the New Year as a story that has yet to unfold itself.
"Remember ‘1984?’ It was George Orwell’s book about an oppressed future ruled by a ‘Big Brother.’ We’re now 30 years in the future. It’s 2014. If this was a book, and you are the one who gets to write it, what will 2014 be remembered for?" asks Duane Cunningham, VP for Global Operations at The Binary Options Experts.
The exercise involves answering five key questions which will set the tone for the narrative of a trader for 2014.
Why? Why is 2014 a mission worth making?
Here, traders must answer how the New Year will be different from the others. And just like every narrative wherein the protagonist is driven by a mission, traders must clearly establish their own mission as well as the other cast members in the story that is 2014.
What? What are the chapters in the journey?
In every narrative, the hero must face and overcome challenges before completing his mission. Here, traders must identify which route they should take for the year as well as potential roadblocks which they need to successfully overcome.
Who? Who are the main characters in the story?
The trader's journey or adventure, like that of the hero's, is not always a solitary journey. Along the way, he meets allies and even adversaries. For a trader, these may include other traders in one touch binary options. The key idea here is identifying who will benefit from the hero/trader's mission and who will enjoy from its success.
When? When do the key moments take place?
Every narrative has five distinct parts – a beginning, complication, climax, resolution and an end. With these questions, traders need to map out how their narrative begins, flows and ends.
How? How will the book be written?
Finally, stories may fall into various genres. Here, traders decide whether they want 2014 to be a comedy, an adventure, a hero's journey or even a love story.
"Give it a go and see what comes up. We are often so focused on the content of what we want to have, do or be, we miss the context of the story in which we live out our lives. Set the story first, and much of the rest often takes care of itself. Remember, 2014 will be a historic year whether we are a part of it or not," Cunningham encourages.
