I am going to rant here so turn around if you want. To become successful in anything competitive requires you to think slightly different or do things differently or sacrifice something others are unwilling to. It is often the subtle mind shifts or behavioral changes at the right time that will catapult you to success. This is especially true in trading. Many times it is a thought or belief that is holding you back.
There is no such thing as being right and losing money. Being right means making money, there is no other definition as far as I am concerned. STOP FUCKING SAYING IT. You can not pay for anything with moral victories. I would argue it is best to feel nothing, that is almost impossible. But a loss should not feel good. Saying you were “right” has a tendency to make one feel good.
Instead of feeling a sense of accomplishment the correct feeling should be a sense of possibility. You are so close to getting it right/making money but that last bit is often the hardest. Congratulate yourself later, you have work to do right now. Ok, end rant and good luck.
