day trading is a skill, not a job

Most people who come to trading for a living are most likely leaving another job. They are usually leaving a salary or a  position they earn their pay by the hour. Believe it or not this is one of the hardest obstacles to overcome in your pursuit of trading for a living.

In order to NET money you must first adopt the mindest of being paid for your skill, your ability, not for your time. You must start to understand and believe you have a talent and you can be paid for your talent.

Doctors get paid for their skill, lawyers get paid for their skill. In order to net money consistently you must focus on mastering your profession, not how much time you spend at the office.

Be a professional and stop trading your time for money. Trade your expertise for money.
