What Is The Worst Trade That You’re Already Making?
A few weeks back I made a blog post titled Learning From Billionaires – 7 Secrets From Investment Superstars. That video is an interview with Tony Robbins about his then soon to come book that was since released on November 19th last month. Since posting that video I have had the chance to read his latest book. The feedback from everyone about the book has been great. The unique part about that book is that he interviews people who have literally nothing to gain from sharing their information with you. Additionally these are investors that the average person would never be able to interact with. Here is a link to the book MONEY Master The Game: 7 Steps To Financial Freedom. Like any information, it will only work if you put it into action. If your the type of person that buys things to make yourself feel good and never puts it into action then save the $20 bucks and go buy some Starbucks.
Anyway, the title of this article is What Is The Worst Trade That Your Already Making? So…what is that trade? Well, what are you doing right now? More than likely your currently trading time for money. Without a doubt trading time for money is the most common trade people make and beyond a shadow of a doubt it is the worst trade that can be made. That was one of the points from the book that struck me. It seems absolutely ridiculous to me that people agree to give up the best years of their life when their health is at its peak in exchange for being able to retire when you health begins to decline. People fear the unknown…to me looking back when I’m 70 and realizing I pissed away something I can never get back is a much bigger fear.
The goal of today’s blog post is to get you thinking. Maybe you don’t want to learn to trade for a living. There is nothing wrong with that. There is however something wrong with giving away something you cannot get back, time. Can you sell information? Is there something you know that will help others? Maybe you want to get into real estate? Do you have an idea for a local business that would help the people in your community? Where there is a will there is a way. If the first thing that comes to your mind is, “I can’t do that because” then you need to start changing you pattern of thought. I can guarantee that those who believe they can’t do something will always be right. Instead of thinking you can’t do something, start thinking of solutions.
If you fall into the category of those who constantly believe there is no way out of working for the “man” then I want you to do some research on Madam C.J. Walker. She was born in 1867 and was the first in her family to not be born a slave. Ok lets think of all the things she had going against her before we go any further. First, she was born when African Americans were looked at as nothing more than property in the US. Second she was female…again at that time in history this was another huge strike against her succeeding in business. Third she came from nothing and had nothing in the way of start up funds. With everything against her she became the first female self-made millionaire. Are you trying to tell me you think you have more going against you than she did?? Are you serious right now? If she can do it why can’t you?
Many western societies have become a culture of lazy pigs that expects government to bale them out as if they are owed something simply because they are alive. If your not living the life you desire that is no ones fault but your own. Earl Nightingale said, “We are all self made but only the successful will admit it”. Let today be the day you start working toward YOUR goal. I don’t care what your goal is but I do care that you start on it today! Imagine how far along you will be if you take one small step towards your goal everyday for the next year! For those who have the goal of learning to trade forex for a living then the next paragraph is for you.
