The value of trading, properly conceived and exercised, is that it can become a vehicle for self-development. If not properly conceived and executed, trading can become an addictive and destructive activity. Good trading is trading that is self-determined, self-enhancing, and rewarding in terms of personal and financial development; bad trading reinforces and repeats the negative patterns that hold us back in life. It is rare to find activities that reward you financially for your growth and development as a human being. That is one of the great appeals of trading. – Brett Steenbarger
