What is the most differentiating characteristic between successful traders and losing traders gleaned from your interviews?

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Question for Jack

If you knew you were dying tomorrow and were passing on some golden nuggets of advice (trading or life in general), what would they be and why?

Nice Mike I am reading "Hedge Fund Market Wizards" now. He is such an excellent interviewer. Much to be gleaned from his books.

Way to go.

Agree completely.

When I read his first book, it was years ago, and I was not ready for it. I put it down almost in disgust, thinking there was nothing useful here. This was a novel, not a trading book that was going to help me.

Couldn't have been more wrong. I just wasn't far enough along in my own journey as a trader to appreciate the wisdom of the book.

I haven't read his newest one yet, but I am looking forward to reading my autographed copy soon enough

The new one challenged some of my trading bias as did his first book.

Can you go into more detail? Could be some good questions there for Saturday.
