Quote for the day

“Most people just cannot weather the learning curve. As soon as it gets difficult, and their approach isn't working up to their expectations, they begin to look for something else. As a result, they become slightly efficient in many areas without becoming very good in any single methodology. The reality is that it takes a very long time to develop a superior approach, and along the way, you are going to go through periods where you do poorly. Ironically, those are the periods that give you the most valuable information.” - Mark Minervini
