"Most traders lose money because they are more interested in being right than being profitable"

As someone with a background in training and personal development, this statement interests me, because it is so true in so many areas of life - not just trading. How many relationships do we blow because we are more interested in being right? How many opportunities to learn do we pass up? How much time do we waste trying to do things our way instead of asking for help?

Seems to me that one of the keys to becoming profitable is dealing with ego. Does this become harder or easier as we become more successful? Do successful traders have successful relationships? How do we keep letting go the need to be right?

It's simple

Congrats to Big Mike on a successful 1st year. With this in mind, I am here to help.

People search far and wide for the Holy Grail. I am going to give it to you.

About 2500 years ago, there lived some gentlemen named Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. These three were members of a society that gave us many of the tenets we still abide by today. The Greeks would have weekly forums where they would discuss everything from capital punishment to luck. I think we can all agree that these were smart people.

The Greeks believed the the center of the earth was at Delphi. This was the birthplace of Apollo and it was also where the Oracle was housed. People from all over the land would come to Delphi to seek the advice of the Oracle. At the entrance to Delphi, there was an archway and there were two saying engraved in the marble. Stop and think about that for a moment. The Greeks had scrolls and scrolls of philosophy, rules, engineering etc, yet at the center of their earth, they chose only two short sayings for all to read upon entering Delphi.

The first said; Everything in moderation.

The second and the answer to your question and the reason I should win the Lifetime Elite Membership subscription is...

I am not looking for a holy grail. There is no holy grail out there. The holy grail is the trader itself. I am not looking for big house, lots of cucubines, fast cars, etc. I am looking to make a daily living and be thankful. It would be great to win a Elite membership and earn a living.

Traders know the most.

Congratulations Big Mike on your FIRST Anniversary. Here is a challenge for Big Mike...

There are only nine questions.
This is a quiz for people who know everything!
I found out in a hurry that I didn't.
These are not trick questions.
They are straight questions with straight answers.

1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends.

2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?


3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial vegetables?

4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear get inside the bottle?

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters ' dw' and they are all common words. Name two of them.

7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar.
Can you name at least half of them?

8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

9. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter 'S.'


Answers To Quiz:

1... The one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends: Boxing.

2. North American landmark constantly moving backward: Niagara Falls .
(The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every minute.)

3. Only two vegetables that can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons: Asparagus and rhubarb.

4. The fruit with its seeds on the outside: Strawberry.

5. How did the pear get inside the brandy bottle? It grew inside the bottle.
The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are small, and are wired in place on the tree. The bottle is left in place for the entire growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off at the stems.

6. Three English words beginning with dw: Dwarf, dwell and dwindle...

7. Fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar: Period, comma, colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe,question mark, exclamation point, quotation mark, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and ellip ses.


8. The only vegetable or fruit never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form but fresh: Lettuce.

9. Six or more things you can wear on your feet beginning with 'S': Shoes, socks, sandals, sneakers, slippers, skis, skates, snowshoes, stockings, stilts.
