Yes, becoming a pro trader is like getting into the SAS - many are called, few are chosen. And as with getting into special forces, success generally requires extraordinary effort and isn't guaranteed. People might look at the success of the top traders, and think 'This sounds like money for old rope. It could be me'. However, the harsh reality is 'It probably won't be. As in, there is a 99% chance that what looks so easy in a video will forever elude you'.
BTW, I'm sure that being a pro trader can be psychologically challenging (and I wasn't triggered). However, I was just making the point that so can many other jobs.

Sometimes it seems like it must be easier to become an astronaut than a trader, when I look around and see how many people actually make it.
