Why is this such an important insight as a trader?
Well, it allows you to map where you are in your journey and gives you a gague on how far you have left to travel. Enjoy!

Darko’s Strategy of the Week
[10:07] I had a clear vision in my head, like I don’t want to work for someone else, I want to work for myself.
[10:29] If I’m just trading then I just need my laptop and I can do that anywhere in the world that I want to.
[14:39] If I can educate myself at least I can get my money back and then I wouldn’t touch this business.
[16:09] Literally a decade later, I got my first breakthrough where I start understanding the market structure like price action.
[16:34] I would say more than 80% of people that are pretending to be coaches or running a service, they don’t even trade a live account.
[18:35] I didn’t know that trading was 20% your system, 80% is your mindset.
[20:17] It’s not your trading system, it’s your mindset.
[21:13] Accept that trading is a probability game. You lose some, you win some.
[21:17] Just because you lose doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong.
[24:03] I don’t want anything on your chart beside price.
[27:07] The most genius ideas in the world (trading and non-trading) are almost always the simplest thinking.
[31:27] 95% of every retail trader who gets into this business will never ever make it in the long run.
[37:41] If you’re clicking yourself in and out, it’s self-sabotaging your trade.
[37:50] The best trade I ever had was while sleeping.
[38:59] If you are looking for a Holy Grail, I will tell you this for free – Money Management is your key.
[45:28] My plan B is to follow plan A.
[48:33] A strategy needs to be at least 70% – 80% objective so you can go and back test it.
[53:29] There is no single trading book in the world that tells you anything that works in the real life.
[54:25] Start to master your mind before you master anything else in life.
[57:47] Don’t trade live money until you know what you are doing.
