I don't post much. I'm not a great communicator and as I am in the UK much of my focus is on UK and European stocks anyway. Also as a value type investor I am not much into cloud type shares although I read in order to try and understand better.

Nonetheless I hope you will forgive a response to this albeit not really a reply.

I think you need to focus on the positive much more than the negative - I didn't used to think like this so much but approaches change.

Sure learn from things you have done wrong but get yourself in a positive mindset to move forward.

Instead of saying I should have held on to this or that I now try to think...I made x% from buying this even if I sold too soon (a perenial fault of mine) and I can always buy it back (something I now find much easier than I used to) or buy something else instead. It has made a positive contribution.

I look more and more for things (& more importantly people) who do so whilst trying to learn from what I might have done better which in large part is why I read this and one or two other boards.
