Perfect Execution > Winning A Trade

I am of the belief that it is far more satisfying to have executed a trade perfectly, rather than have won a trade.

(When I say “executing perfectly”, I mean you had followed every single step of your strategy.)

When you win a trade, of course that is a good thing.

However, the win could have been due to perfect execution, or it could have been due to pure luck with haphazard execution.

Between “perfect execution” and “winning a trade”, which one leads you to becoming a successful day trader in the long run?

I would say it is “perfect execution”.

Therefore, you should condition your mind to be more pleased with having executed a trade perfectly (regardless of the outcome), rather than getting a win.
