Some infamous traders who make mistakes and fail are also worth mentioning here. While famous traders are a source of inspiration, these infamous and failure traders are a source of knowledge. Beginners and experienced too can learn from their mistakes in order to prevent their losses.
Famous traders not only inspire and drive me, but they also inspire me to believe that it is possible to make it a full-time career. When I analyse their success and accomplishments, they inspire me to trade and learn more.
You're right. You know some cunning people always claim 'The wisest people are those ones who learn on someone's mistakes, but not on their own ones'. I can agree with this statement partly, because I can't underst estimate the essence of the own mistakes. You can learn on someone's mistakes, but the most effective way to digest what was done wrong - to make mistake on your own. Yeah... it's unpleasant for real and as a rule, in trading it causes losses, nevertheless only due to this thing traders are able to get experience and knowledge, empirical knowledge I would say. There is nothing better than realise your own mistakes.
