Stop putting the blame to other. Remember that you are the common denominator here. You are the one responsible for your actions. Don’t find the blame from others because it won’t do you any good. Instead of involving other people to the wrong path you took, try to find out the reason why did such an action. Try to validate why you listened to your friend’s advice rather than using your own strategies. The first way to recover from your investing mistakes is to admit to yourself that you made a wrong decision.
Never stop trying. Fall seven times, stand up eight. That’s what you must do when you invest in stocks. There are small and big risks you have to face and they won’t come in a fix time. You should be ready to fall anytime because that’s how it works when you want to earn money. Keep on trying but don’t do the same mistake again. If there’s a need for you to improvise your investing plan, do it. At the end of the day, you should aim on hitting your goal. You should be able to earn the profit your desire.
Find out what went wrong with your decision. Was it the status of the stock market during that time? Was it your lack of knowledge? Was it your impulsiveness? Was it your emotions? As you keep on trying to make things right, don’t forget to learn from your mistake. Figuring out what went wrong can help you create new steps without the things that didn’t work for you. You must be aware at all times especially of the results of your actions. Becoming knowledgeable will help you cope from your past mistakes.
