    Failure is failure. So what're the causes for your failure, which is very imperative for traders and investors. Do you know that you failed since you were crooking or crooked in the stock market? Do you know that you failed since you crooked to yourselves?

    Do you think, if you would buy a house at peak and see the price crash down, you are crooked to be fool or you are a fool? A pieces of words from a loser in China's property market:

    "The salesman from bank, he promised us a lot. They promised that the value of our home would never go down but it would only increase but that is now meaningless. I've lost 400,000 yuan. It's like it just suddenly disappeared."

    Key words need to be noticed:
    1. promise
    2. never go down
    3. meaningless
    4. suddenly disappeared

    Any underlying logic and lessons could be got? Pains overwhelm consciousness always and when pains gone, the lessons gone! To sharpen our minds, just ask some questions for ourselves:
    1. was the salesman a crook?
    2. was the loser crooked by others only?
    3. who really believed "never go down?"
    4. where are the pains, curses, and ethical matters from?
    5. who was trying to find excuses? why?
    6. what pill of medicines could cure the failure?

    ***
    Generally speaking, if you would crook too much and too long you would fail, which is not safe; if you would be crooked and you let it going one and hurt you, you will fail. Failure is failure and your pains could not change the people who would crook you and you would be desperate if your failure burnt too much.

    Somebodies said failure is valuable for lessons but the dire reality in the stock market is no too many ones really have got the lessons from their failure. Most of time one failure completely break up their heart and let them lose the guts.

    It is never new to crook or to be crooked. The key is how you don't crook and would not be crooked. Could you do so? It is too simple in logic but we have too much greed and fear so that we tend to crook and to be crooked.
