Thanks for the answer. Bear with me for a minute...

I have a friend who has 2 sons. Son #1 is a great basketball player talent wise. But he doesn't care that much about basketball. On the other hand, Son #2 loves basketball - wants to play all day. Problem is, he basically sucks at it.

Which son will succeed at basketball? Neither! They both need to be great at basketball, AND be motivated to be great.

How does this apply?

One, you have to have a talent/acumen for trading. Much of this can be learned. This is the part where you don;t know until you try.

Two, you need motivation to succeed. Do your reasons for trading listed above provide the motivation you need?

I totally understand the first point that you make. You never know how good you will be until you try. I get that.

The second point that you make is that Yes. I believe all the points that I made above are all great motivational points but that's from someone who knows nothing about the industry. Are those good points? I don't know. That's why I'm on here trying to pick the thoughts from experienced traders all because one experience trader said that if you are not experience in trading don't start comments. Is this true?
