Where was the part about where you get married, and then get divorced, and you wife takes half your money?

Throw it into one of the steps where you get 'humbled'.

Isn't it preferable to have a mentor who can help you in getting to where you want to go rather than trying to find the way/path at your own???

imo the answer is mostly a matter of

a) finding a mentor that
# knows how to guide people without forcing sth upon them
# is not a fraud

b) personal preference

I guess.

I personally never wanted/looked for a mentor, as I understood relatively early, that ultimately I have to find/develop/alter the system that really suits me on my own and moreover need to control myself psychologically, anyways.
But I have always been the type of person who prefered self-education.

For some it might be better to find a mentor, I guess.

I looked for a mentor when I first started. All I found were people wanting to sell me systems. I had one guy who was only going to charge me a daily rate. Set me up with software so he could direct me in real time how to trade ES. Day one we broke even and when I asked how much he made trading he said he didn’t trade. End of relationship.

You shouldn’t expect a mentor to show you a method. You should expect a mentor to guide you through the process of finding and developing a system that suites you. Too many people are looking to copy a method that may not be appropriate for them.

It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.

I'm for sure on step 19, but do fall in line with some of the higher steps. I haven't really paid that much tuition or donations. I'm done going in circles and realize I'm always going to be learning. I've been humbled and know I will be humbled some more down the road. Something so simplistic that I've twisted and made it more complicated than it needs to be.

Thanks for sharing your trading milestones.

39. I get out of my harem just long enough to click the mouse and wash my Bugatti

Even the most consistent and profitable strategy is on the clock and has a finite life span, those upper levels are not real.

I think I'm at 25-29.

At least I don't have to worry about getting a divorce and a wife taking half of my money

I think I'm around 15-20 but not sure. I only know that I'm past step 14 and haven't quit. I've also realized that it's something that I want to keep doing.

I am at level 19-21. Recently watching the video record of my trades I had the feeling that the success is in me, because nobody else can control the execution. But its not the belief yet, just a feeling.
