A truly favorable trade setup is not often come along. The frequency of these setups depends on the time frame of the trade and the criteria used to determine what is favorable.

The real question is, do you have the passion, commitment, and resilience to find it?

If so, the rewards will be plentiful.

It is not a common practice among traders. Many traders never take the time to analyze their successful and unsuccessful trades. Steve Clark emphasizes that the only way to know what works and does not is to reflect on past experiences. To strengthen his point, keep track of your successful and unsuccessful trades. You may be surprised by what you discover.

Overall, quotes can be a valuable tool for motivation in trading, providing inspiration, perspective, and a sense of purpose. Still, it’s important to remember that motivation alone isn’t enough to be successful in trading, and it should be combined with the knowledge, discipline, and a solid plan.
