For the record, 69 is not the nuts in your example. J9 is.
Regardless, you shouldn't be evaluating your play based on hand results. Instead, you should be evaluating your play based on your decision making. The bottom line: any time you get all your money in as a substantial favorite then you have played well and the hand result is irrelevant. If you do that consistently get your money in ahead then you will win in the long term. End of story.
