No matter what you think about the following statement I’m about to make, it’s true, and you will see why if you finish reading today’s lesson…
The rich and successful in this world, including business people, professional athletes, movie stars and the like, all DESERVE the money and success they have earned and achieved in their lives.
In nearly every case, they work harder and smarter than the other 99% of the population, they do what 99% of the population won’t do, they take the risks, they invest the time, effort and money, they study and practice and perfect their crafts constantly. Whether directly or indirectly, they are working on becoming “the best”, the majority of their waking hours.
The biggest difference between a successful person and an unsuccessful person is almost always the level of conscientiousness to the task and awareness of what needs to be done and when. That means they are dedicated to always learning and absorbing new knowledge and information, it means they work their asses off to get to where they want to be and dream to be, it means they seek out solutions and answers to the problems and challenges they face. The rich and successful live and breath what they do, they are passionate and will usually be the one in the group who is prepared to do whatever it takes, including take the risks required to get the result they desire.
That, my friends, is the price of freedom and lifestyle, be it from trading, business, sports, a top level executive or CEO, or whatever it is you choose to be. The majority of those that eventually get the good life, deserve the good life, not because it was they inherited it, but because they out-worked everyone else to get it.
So, where does that leave you? Where do you think you stand right now in your life when it comes to increasing your level of conscientiousness, what’s your level of awareness? Be honest with yourself, if you’re overweight, do you deserve to be overweight or do you eat well and exercise regularly? Do you study health and nutrition ? If not, then you probably deserve to be overweight. Do you study the markets, do you read constantly about the markets, do you take courses and seek mentors, do you study the market and charts every day?
No pressure here or anything, but right now, after hearing a brief intro. into what the rich and successful in this world do and how they think and act, do you think at this stage you really deserve trading success and the lifestyle it can bring? Are you really doing what it takes?
IF NOT, READ ON…
Even if you’re not rich yet, even if you’re not successful yet, even if you only have $1,000 in your trading account, you NEED to start acting as if you are a millionaire, you need to start acting as if you have already made it and to do that I have laid out some ideas below to help you get into the right groove. Hopefully this will bring you close to the self-belief that you deserve to master the game of trading, investing, business, whatever endeavor you choose to pursue.
