I thought i'd post this thread up and have people (preferably successful traders) share with us some of their down moments when they thought they wouldn't make it as a successful trader. Whether it be in the early stages of your career or in the peak.
I'm currently feeling a bit bummed out and I was just telling my dad how I feel like a complete failure and what if after 8 years of trading and still nothing makes sense. But at the same time I couldnt imagine letting go of this deep burning desire deep down with in to keep going even if it means I become a 50 year old loser at home still trying to figure out how to become consistent.
At times like this you feel so low that you wonder if you should even open up another sim run or how to meditate to let go of the stress and burden within.
So what did you guys do when you were down like this. Maybe you had no mentors and you had to keep soldiering on. Maybe it was a turning point with in or maybe its just a cycle and you have to learn how to manage it.
Is there a way to turn this sadness into fuel and to motivate your desire to conquer?
Maybe noobs like me can look at these stories and understand that these fears are normal in moments of despair.
