    A lesson learned (the hard way)

    I remember starting out and thinking upgrades were automatic to make a stock price go higher. I bought on the open only to learn that everyone one was selling on the news! Not only did I buy at the intraday high, but I panicked and sold my position losing about $2,200 in five minutes. I was in college at the time and was so pissed, stunned, and freaked out, I swear I lost my hearing for about five minutes.

    Lesson learned: Life's a bitch. But you can make a comeback if you can learn from your own mistakes...

    • Yes, the "school of hard knocks" is a teacher for sure. There is a fine line though between learning the hard way and getting so beaten up that you don't venture out anymore though LOL. One has to be careful of getting crippling memes built up in their minds.
