Sometime we really need to sit quietly and seriously think about it.
If you are an employee or self-employed having a full-time job, do you really need to trade for income and hope that one day you can quit your job and become a full-time day trader?

Trading for income may require you either to have big capital or trade with leverage such as CFD and Margin to amplify your gains and to cut your losses short before they escalate to huge losses limiting your capability to come back.
Trading on leverages may be less forgiving. It may require you to have superior stock analysis skills. You may have less room for analysis errors as you need to cut losses fast and take your profits based on your quality of TA for exits.
If you can re frame your mind to switch from trading for income to trading for cash flow, you may turn yourself from a trader to an active investor. Cash flow can come from stock dividends and realized gains. You may have more room for simpler stock analysis as you may hold it longer for cash flow from stock dividends. So you may not in a hurry to cut your losses short.
You may do short-term trading and long-term investing. I am telling you it is definitely less stressful and the stock analysis is more forgiving.
