- I was losing for a little over a year straight, told myself "I just want a green month" I had the green month and wasn't fulfilled. "I just want to go r/g on my profit curve", I did that and wasn't fulfilled.
- When I started finding edge through spreadsheet tracking, following a process I laid out, and traded it well; I was happy and fulfilled in these cases.
