There are many twists and turns on this path. Not many succeed for various reasons. Many say this is one of the most difficult careers out there. No matter your trading style, strategy, time frame, etc., just remember it is all about risk management... Live to fight another day. While I do believe true strength is found from within yourself, I think it is fair to say that we have all had at some point support and help from others. Just remember to tell them thank you, your mentor, parents, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, friend, brother, sister, who ever has been there and seen you on the worst of days as well there to celebrate on the best of them.
Even the haters and doubters, thank them for fueling your fire to keep on.
Trade Well Friends! Work Hard and Stay Humble...
