What advice would you give to someone like me who wants to trade for a living but can’t seem to get over fear of losing?

What advice would you give to someone like me who wants to trade for a living but can’t seem to get over fear of losing? –@MzAprilShowers

Anyone who is interested in trading has several features in common most of the time:

A)     Intelligent enough to do heavy research on companies or trading systems. I think 99% of traders realize they need to create an edge for themselves and this involves hard work

B)     An ability to gamble

C)     They don’t want to work for anyone else

These are similar (or the same) as features required by an entrepreneur.  I think, ultimately, daytrading is a loser’s game (See, “8 reasons not to daytrade” http://bit.ly/h028VG and you can use those same attributes to be an entrepreneur (See, “100 Ways to a be a better entrepreneur” http://bit.ly/edLg2J).
