|The Secret Ingredient|
Immense success is possible for most traders and investors. But the secret to that success has little to do with some magical trading system. Instead, it has everything to do with you. You are the secret ingredient to your success. And when you transform yourself, you transform everything. Peak Performance 202 is a major leap forward for those of you who are willing to take the plunge.
The Games We Play
Van Tharp believes that understanding games is one of the real keys to psychological breakthroughs in trading and wealth. Learn how to become aware of your games: the Domain, the Rules, the Levels of Awareness, and the Trading and Wealth Games we play.
Your Winning Strategy
Your Winning Strategy has been the basis for all of your past success, but it will limit you as a trader/investor. In fact, the more powerful it is (i.e., the more success you’ve achieved with it), the more it limits you now. Learn how and take steps to overcome those limitations.
In Peak Performance 202, you’ll learn how to make a declaration for a trading vision that might seem impossible now. Yet, once you’ve gone through the workshop, you’ll learn how it is possible and how you can take the first steps toward a new you and success that’s beyond your current scope. This workshop is that powerful.

|What You Can Expect to Learn|
The Peak Performance 202 Workshop is divided into three sections covering 4 days:
Participants all agreed that this was one of the most significant workshops they had ever attended. Everyone left with a new sense of purpose and a new direction and a support team behind them. We expect the second workshop to have even more impact.

|Uncover the Beliefs that Really Shape Your Success and What you Can Accomplish|
Imagine that you are asleep, but you don’t know you are asleep. Instead, you are dreaming and the dream appears quite real. In it you find yourself in an existence in which you are continually frustrated. Your goal seems right in front of you, but something holds you in place. Or, your goal seems right in front of you and suddenly it disappears because someone simply took it away.
Have you ever had a dream like that? Most of us have such dreams, but when you think about it, our lives are very much the same way. Life can seem very frustrating and sometimes hopeless. Do you know how to quickly make your dreams a reality? Probably not, but there is a secret. And that secret is to undo your unconscious programming, because you are programmed to create that in your life. You have beliefs, beliefs you are not even aware of, which hold you in the dream of life and keep you frustrated. And to undo the programming you must become aware that it is there.
The first part of this workshop is designed to help you wake up. You’ll learn how you’ve been programmed to fail through a process that might be called "domestication." You’ll learn how domestication works and you’ll learn how many of the agreements that you’ve made with yourself (and others) keep you asleep. You’ll find that waking up is an exciting process because you can start to program yourself.
In Peak Performance 101 we only devote a few hours to the topic of how you are programmed by your beliefs and attitudes. In the Advanced Peak Performance 202 Workshop,, you’ll get an incredible day of uncovering just what keeps you stuck in the dream. You’ll learn how to begin to really charge forward.

|The Games We Play|
Learning About the Games We Play Is the Most Important Psychological Breakthrough of the New Millennium
Everything we do is basically a game to prove ourselves to others. We want to prove that we are better, smarter, and more likely to win. However, those very games are what keep us asleep and hold us back.
Here’s one example of such a game, the money game. You’ve been programmed with lots of beliefs about money. These might include: "Money is power and freedom." "The love of money is the root of all evil." "People who have money are not very nice." "The more money you have the more you are likely to win the game of life." "It’s important to be right." "It’s important to get a good job to be successful." Do some of those ideas sound familiar? They should because they are some of the rules that most people follow when they play the money game unconsciously.
In fact, the money game is one of hundreds of games that most of us play unconsciously. We play these games without knowing it in our relationships, in our finances, with our health, with our trading, and with our lives. In the Advanced Peak Performance 202 Workshop, you’ll learn how to recognize the games you are playing and how to wake up to them. And doing so will change your life forever. In fact, the key to winning any game is to start to make up your own rules.
Now you’re probably saying, “Wait a minute, that might be illegal and I don’t want to do anything illegal.” But that’s not what I’m suggesting. Not at all. Instead, there are lots of ways that you can invent your own rules and still play the game legally. If you accumulate enough passive income so that you never have to work again, because money is working for you. Is that illegal? Of course, not! But it does involve changing the rules to the game. Most people believe that to win the money game you must have the most toys. And those who play that way either end up with a lot of toys and probably not feeling like it is enough or they end up totally broke—one or two big mistakes and you’ll be discarded as a loser of the game.
In this incredible workshop, you’ll learn about the common games that most of us play unconsciously. Only after you’ve finished, you’ll have a tremendous edge. You’ll get to make up your own rules, because you’ll understand how you’ve been programmed in the past. In Peak Performance 202, you’ll learn about the trading game, and the universal human game. All of them are very significant to reinventing your new future.
The Trading Game Re-Invented
We identified a minimum of eleven levels at which the trading game is played. Each level has its own set of rules and tends to superimpose those rules (at least for those who are unaware) on the levels below it. Most people reading this letter are probably playing at one of the bottom three levels. As a result, there are many rules superimposed upon you that you just unconsciously obey. But you don’t have to do that, especially once you are aware of the game and how it is played.
Furthermore, we identified 23 rules and presuppositions that you are expected to follow as a trader in the bottom three levels. If you want to know what these rules are, just watch Wall Street Week, CNBC, or read the most common business magazines and periodicals and books. All of those sources assume that certain rules are important. Here are just a few examples:
We could go on and on with this, but you probably get the picture. Well, the bottom line is that these rules are not the rules of most winners. And if you want to win the trading game, you must know the rules that winners follow—or better yet, invent your own rules. You’ll learn all about that in this section of Peak Performance 202.
The Universal Human Game
When you read these premises over, you probably agree with them. Of course, you will because you are playing the game, so you adopted them unconsciously a long time ago. However, your strategy for winning has severely limited you. And the more successful you are at playing the game, the more your strategy will limit you without you knowing it. And, it will especially limit your trading success.
You’ll learn the benefits that come from not playing game or at least taking steps in that direction. And that will be the foundation for reinventing yourself to go way beyond your current limitations.

|Determine Your Winning Strategy and How It Limits Your Trading|
On Day 3, we’ll begin by helping everyone determine their personal winning strategy and how it limits them. Dr. Tharp will make sure that everyone understand their strategy before going onto the trader reinvention paradigm. And that’s why we’re strictly limiting the attendance at this amazing workshop.
Here is an example of a winning strategy just so you can notice its limitations:
What does that strategy tell you about this person? Several key things stand out immediately. This person is constantly looking for conflict and thus will find it. This strategy will typically miss understanding what is working well. The person has a big ego. All of these patterns have contributed to great success in the past, but notice how they limit one’s perception in the present. And how effective do you think this strategy is for trading success? That’s why “winning strategies” are typically a big limitation. And in Peak Performance 202, you’ll learn how you’ve limited yourself by beliefs and how to charge forward into the future.

|The New Paradigm|
The third part of Peak Performance 202 will help you adopt a new paradigm to reinvent yourself.
You’ll learn how to determine your real purpose, what you really are all about on this planet. Leaders who learn this paradigm typically accomplish what they’d previously thought to be impossible. As a result, we’re excited to begin teaching traders this same paradigm for reinventing themselves. It’s how you’ll accomplish the impossible.
Here is just a small glimpse into what you’ll be doing. First, you and the other workshop participants will use advanced thinking concepts to declare a new, previously impossible vision, that you’ll all strongly adopt. It’s an incredible process that produces incredible results.
Second, you’ll take the first action steps toward making your new vision a reality. These steps are not taken lightly because they are made as promises to the group.
Third, you’ll have group support to help you in your vision. At the last workshop, there was an incredible sense of unity and purpose for the vision. Each person had a job and each person had the support of everyone else to help them accomplish the vision.
Fourth, everyone had a set of procedures to continue the vision into the future and to help them deal with each event that could occur in the future. It was a significant breakthrough for everyone.

Enrollment Is Strictly Limited
Peak Performance 202 involves intensive group interaction and it also involves fairly intense (and often one-on-one) work with the instructor. That format produces dramatic results and change, so we must strictly limit the enrollment in this workshop. As a result, we urge you to make a reservation now if you are up for the challenge. Once it is full, we can only put you on a waiting list and you’ll have a six month to one year wait until the next workshop.
