Have You Ever Thought About Quitting Your Job?

Sure you have.

I have gone around the world and asked a simple question: Are you overpaid? I’ve probably asked that question to 10,000 people. I’ve only had one person answer yes.

That means that 9999 people were working for less pay than they deserve. You are probably in that group.

I often think about what it is like to work at a job where you are underpaid. What does it do to your psyche and self -esteem?

What does it do to you when you constantly feel under-appreciated? I think it must slowly degrade your self-esteem and self-worth. How is it possible to get rich with that gnawing at you?

I think few people have a job which allows them to get paid fairly and help them grow as a person. And that is a major problem in the world! It’s hard to have world peace when people are cranky about their job!

How can you become the person you should be when you spend 10 hours every day in work and commutation? And then you are tired when you get home?

You NEED to take control of your job! What do you want out of life? Will your job be the tool to get you there?

We offer a super cool online course called How To Quit Your Job Trading Stocks and Options. You can find out more info by clicking here now.

Trading stocks and options is not for everyone but it may be just perfect for you.Check it out here.

Time to Sell Ford?

Ford just announced a change in CEO to a guy who did a turnaround in a smaller company in a different industry. But, at Ford, he was in charge of their self driving car division.
I get nervous when companies look trendy when they are not. Let’s take a look at some of the facts.
First, analysts are expecting Ford’s earnings to drop 12% this year and only rise 7% next year.
A big reason is rising inventories. Auto companies are seeing increasing inventories which means they can’t sell the cars they are producing which means they will have to cut back production soon.
Yet sales are already dropping! Look at the chart of Total Vehicle Sales and it has broken the previous lows!
Seasonally, June is a slightly poor month for Ford’s price.
Technically, Ford has been in a long bear market but just jumped sharply higher on the CEO change news. It is this rally that I want to use to short the stock or buy a put.
Let’s get short!

The Trader’s Life

Imagine sitting in a cafe next to a sandy beach in Thailand with a cold beer at your elbow.

Imagine being in your private club in London with waiters bringing you food as you sink into a plush chair and look through the window at the park outside that allows only a few people access. And you have access because you are a member of the club.

Imagine sitting next to a pool in a 5 star hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia watching the kids play in the pool.

I’ve done all of this an more.

The life of a trader is all about choice. You can live wherever you want. You have freedom to go wherever you want whenever you want.

You can do it in your underwear or dress up as much as you want.

It’s about traveling and making money at the same time.

But you don’t have to travel the world. There is nothing wrong with staying in your current house.

Bruce Babcock was a great trader and a friend of mine. He died almost 20 years ago. He lived in Sacramento California and played tennis in the morning and golf in the afternoon.  He lived a great life yet never was in an exotic locale. He loved his situation.

And it was trading that got him that great life.

Many people say they want this kind of lifestyle but don’t take action to make it happen. They procrastinate and say they will do it tomorrow.

But your life is today. Tomorrow may never come. So take action today to achieve your dreams.

Money is The Root of All Evil

Actually, the Bible says, “The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (I Timothy 6:10)

Is it?

The answer is maybe.

Money is neutral. It is neither good nor evil. It simply is.

Money is a tool and, as such, can be good or evil. It is like a hammer. A hammer can be good and build a house or evil and kill someone. Money is the same.

But the Bible doesn’t say money is evil but the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.

This is true. Greed can break up families and countries. It can kill people and destroy the inner happiness of a person.

But greed also drives entrepreneurs to create new goods and services for people to benefit from. It creates wealth in a society. Without greed, there is little progress.

So the key is to not fall in love with money to the point that it becomes all encompassing. Where it blinds you to the joy around you. Where it disrupts your inner stability.

Instead, think of money as a tool to achieve something else. It could be something like buy a fancy car. Perhaps your love of a fancy car will be the root of all kinds of evil but the money will have been reduced to a tool for you to get the car.

Or perhaps your money will buy you leisure time to really get in touch with your deep inner feelings and become the person you were meant to be. To be truly you.

How do you get to a point where you have a healthy relationship with money? I’ve put together a course called the Psychology of Massive Wealth. In it, I go into detail about the values you should have about money, the ideas you should have, and the actions to achieve a psychology of massive wealth.

Click here for more information. It will change your life.

I’ve priced the course at only $97 because I want everybody to enjoy the benefits of massive wealth. Click here to register.

Fear of Trading

“I freeze every time I look at the screen. I get seized up with fear!” She said to me. I was afraid she was going to cry.

“I really want to trade. I really want to make money. I hate not having my money make money for me. But I can’t.”

She was smart so that wasn’t stopping her from making a fortune in stocks. She was frozen in fear.

What are you afraid of, I asked her.

“I’m afraid of losing money,” She said.

“Really? How much do you think you will lose if you do a trade?”

She thought for a minute, “I think my worst loss would be about $1000.”

Would you be fearful if you loss was only $10?

“Of course not! That would be silly!” and she giggled.

How about $100?

“No, that would be OK.”

So what you are telling me is that losing $100 doesn’t freak you out but losing $1000 does. Correct?

“Yes.”

So cut your risk to just $100. You don’t have to risk $1000 on trades, and, if it freaks you out to lose that much then you should reduce your risk until you are comfortable.

She took the advice and became a successful investor. She slowly increased her risk over time.

Fear is one of the most critical problems that traders face. Fear of losing money.

I first learned this principle back in the 1970’s. The idea was that you were so nervous and anxious about a  position that you had that you couldn’t sleep. The words of wisdom I heard were, “sell down to the sleeping point.” In other words, if you can’t sleep, make your position so small that you can sleep at night.

I’ve been sleeping like a baby ever since…

Fear is such a big problem that I recently put together an amazing course on the Psychology of Massive Wealth. I reveal two different methods to conquer fear. Not only fear of trading but fear of anything!

Learn more about the course here.

How Playing Pinball Helped Me Make Massive Money

I used to play a lot of pinball in my wasted youth. But it turns out that playing pinball actually became part of the reason that I became a successful trader!
I read an article about a master pinball player. The guy had won multiple tournaments. He was unbelievable.
He was asked how he did it. What was his secret? How did he play so much better than anyone else?
He explained about how it took 1/4 second for him to see the ball, perceive what the movement of the ball meant, process what he should do based on the movement of the ball, and then transmit that information down through his arms to his fingers.
So he said that he concentrated not on the ball but where the ball would be 1/4 second later.
By concentrating on where the ball would be in the future, he got his brain and body in sync with the reality of the ball whereas everybody else was focusing on where the ball was now and were therefore 1/4 of second behind reality.
This blew my mind.
First, it improved my pinball game tremendously.
More importantly, it changed my life.
I now began to see how I had to live in the future in order to live in the hear and now. Looking at the present was actually living in the past.
This forced me to always be looking down the road. What was coming next?
This lead me to always be planning for what might happen. So I am rarely surprised by the markets because I have already considered the most probably futures.
Once I have planned for possible futures, I then create trading strategies based on those projections. I put in my orders based on those probabilities.
This makes trading calm. No anxiety because we have an idea of the future and our orders are entered. No need to make decisions under pressure.
I’ve put together a new course to teach more about the psychological tricks of the trade for a trader. It’s call The Psychology of Massive Wealth and you learn more here.
Please check it out. I think you will learn a lot and make more money!
