yesterday hit me hard!! i get it now. fucking hard lesson to learn even though i reminded myself, for some reason i didnt completely have confidence in myself. thats my biggest issue i am going thru right now!! i need to get better at looking at the bigger picture when it comes to the market. i understand why the learning curve is so long, bc you need to experience the market reaction for an entire year before you can truly understand the rules of the game. you need to experience the flow of the market the good and the bad and learn from every single piece of information that becomes available. i was warned 2 days ago about yesterday, and i didnt fucking listen.. like a dumb ass. i deserve the loss i had from not listening to another veteran, no names outside profitly, that joked about it. i didnt know if he was messing with me or being serious. and thats the part that only experience in the game can guide you. lesson learned and its time to Fucking Get Serious Now!!! No more Bullshyting around. No More half assing on the rules, No More looking to others to find the momentum. You understand exactly what you HAVE TO DO< now its TIME TO GET IT DONE!!! You have the money available, so do not worry to much about the loss right now, it is what it is, and you can make it back! the only thing you need to focus on right now. is making it thru ALL the VIDEO LEssons and DvDs one or two more times. You need to focus on learning from the older video lessons so you can atleast experience the market from the past months/years! You have accomplished alot and did fairly well for a newbie. but like you are,. a NEWBIE< stop thinking to FAR AHEAD OF YOURSELF!! I know you are excited and i know you pick up information very quickly, however, the one thing that you can't control the speed of is your experience time in the markets. you can learn from old lessons to help guide your future. but Current Live market experience is a MUST for continued success into the future!! you got this and never give up! You know this was your path when you read the information and it clicked to you. Everything makes sense to you and you understand the flow of the market. but you still do not know how to FULLY capitalize off this information just yet!! and that is okay, bc you are still a NEWBIE that dipped his feet in the water. Everyone around you, is supporting you and wants the best for you. Do not Let them down, by not using this time to learn to your fullest advantage. Use the time now to learn and experience the market price action. so when the time comes to transfer that money over from your savings. you will be ready to do it next year!!! Prepare and Never Give up! Live it Learn it Love it! This is your Life and you are in control of your future success! You know it takes awhile before you can become successful in trading. so it is okay to go at it slow and steady pace. I know you feel that you are old at 35 and found this information late in your time. however. you are not that old and taking the time now 2-3 yrs of studying could potentially give you a very comfortable late 30's time and 40's should be life of luxury! Maybe Before or After, that is up to you and how well you work at staying disciplined and focused on your mission.
