I read the first post and complete bs imo. I have my own philosophy on the subject that I won't go into too much here but my results in life have turned around from bad luck and having to live out of my car to my current position of being fairly well off and am now sitting on a beach enjoying it. It has to do with visualisation, motivation, an understanding of the time interval and most importantly positive thinking. "Night" (down turn periods) happen to all traders but dealing with losses is part of the game and becoming negative over these periods can affect the trading in loss of confidence and mistakes. Of course positive thinking isn't the only ingredient to success but on my travels I have found there is some "voodoo" to positive thinking where my thoughts revolve around quantum mechanics a little to explain.
