Did anyone else happen to read this excellent article? It seems studies have been done on very successful people in whatever their profession (athletes, engineers, traders, etc). What they found with extremely successful people was first they all experienced massive failure. For only through this failure were they able to identify what they were doing wrong and make the adjustments necessary to finally turn it around. Even though this turning around period also involved more failure. Only those who refused to quit made it to the top of their profession. My question to all you successful traders ( I don't care how much money you make just that you are able to support your lifestyle solely through your trading) is what was your biggest failure point where you felt like giving up but didn't and what adjustment to your trading approach did you make to turn it around?
