Great investors have the ability to visualize the end-state, and make their investment decisions and have the patience to wait for it.

For many individual investors, it is a risky strategy. Because the individual investors will lose patience at the wrong time and walk away. For me, as an individual investor, buying after the event worked better than anticipating and making an investment. I have so many situations where I have called it correctly, but somehow I managed to lose money or not make anything.

Investing is not just finding the correct stocks, but also understanding your own psychology and managing it.
