KING - Want Honesty?

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I recently sent this email to one of the visitors to this site. It was in response to one of his emails. I did not have to do this, and in fact, I might have even discouraged him from pursuing KING. But based on the emails from him, I figured that he was smart enough to realize that I meant nothing wrong. Well, some time later I got an email back from him in which he thanked me for my "thoughtful response." So, I was right: he was man enough not to get discouraged by what I had to say. 

But I do not always respond this way because sometimes I do not respond at all. But only if I think that an email came from someone who lacks confidence to succeed in this tough business, and perhaps also lacks in commitment that is necessary to become successful at day trading. Or at virtually anything, for that matter. I don't respond in such cases, because I don't want to give them a wrong impression that there is some hope for them. No, there isn't.

I could give you a few good examples of that, but I am afraid I would only be wasting your time. Or mine.

The sad thing about these fellows is that they do not seem to realize what difference a simple act of commitment can make. How much it can build your confidence and if you keep going this confidence will only grow. A recent email from Dave, one of my students from the first KING mentoring session is a good case in point. But for those fellows, even a simple single step is already too much. They need a shortcut even to that. Sorry, there isn't any. In Nature there is no such thing as a half-step. There is only a whole step. It can be small, but even a small step can make a huge difference. Neil Armstrong would tell you something about it. For while his first step on the Moon was a small one, it wasn't so small in a grander scheme of things.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, or even like your grandpa, let me say it again. 

The key to success at almost anything is always the same: you need to keep at it. And the main reason so many don't succeed is that they keep looking for shortcuts where shortcuts don't exist. If you know that with KING some people succeed literally within a week, how much of a shortcut can you find here? I am afraid, your best shortcut is simply sticking to it, mastering it, fine-tuning it and a month or two down the road you will not believe you once did not believe that $200-300 a day was possible.

But to keep at it, you need to start. Read Goethe if you need help with that.

"Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
