I've covered quite a few topics throughout 2014, but I believe the most important by far has been my attempt to have people looking for success over a series of trades, rather than on any individual trade.

Your aim is to have more focus on the Win/Loss Size Ratio (WLSR) and less on the Win Percentage (Win%).
Your aim is to focus on profits over a series of trades with less concern for results on individual trades (win or lose).

They need to focus more on Win/Loss Size Ratio and less on Win Percentage.
They need to learn to profit over a series of trades, not an any one individual trade.
