Everyone have a goal but I think one of the most important goal in life is being financial freedom. Everyday, I dream of becoming financial freedom but dreaming vs acting on it is two different things. The first thing I search online about financial freedom a bunch of blog post shows up and tell me to have vision. I remembered walking into one of my family member room and he got the $1 bill on top of his computer desk and after the $1 he drew 6 zeros after that which indicate $1 million. His vision is to turn $1 to $1 million and his goal is to have $1 million before he turn 30, but I never see him act on it. It always come down to this saying “If it was easy everyone would’ve done it” that’s is true. Being financial freedom is definitely not easy. I grew up from a poor family, not a middle class, I have a tough child hood life compare to other people. I started working at the age of 13 waking up 2 AM going to the farm and butcher pig for a living. Most kids at that age probably still sleeping in bed and not have to worry about darn thing. At the age of 15, I have to worry about getting a car because I don’t have a parent to buy me a car. Let just said growing up I don’t know what weekend is because I have to constantly working. There was never a period I don’t work. I work endless to find the edge to become financial freedom. I started business in swamp meet at the age of 15, open my first actual brick and mortar business at the age of 18, and most of them fail. “In business there is failure and success. If you must fail, fail fast so you can get up and try again.” I lived by this code.
Failing is not a bad things because every time you failed you learn something new. The reason you’re not successful because you haven’t fail enough. A lot of people never act on it because they are afraid of failing. After my multiple of business failure I never give up. I am constantly looking for something new to make my life better because I hate 9-5 jobs. My first year of stock/option trading I lost $15k and it was painful very painful. Remembered I am on my own so that $15k was every sweat and tear that I had. Trading is a very tired some business but then again what business isn’t. If it was so easy everyone would’ve done it. I went through some of the worst depression, my emotion was steroids, and it is very stressful. I almost gave up and walk away but not till toward the end of my 2nd year that I realized everything I learn finally paid off. Things finally starting to get easier, I turned 3k to as high as 26k and you can read about it here. Trust me most traders don’t make money for the first 3-4 years trading.
I spent day and night looking through charts after charts, watching a bunch of videos, reading a bunch of books. Now everything finally make sense for me. If you look at my chart I always do a 4 charts section breaking down time frame to time frame so you can see the big pictures. At first I was looking at a bunch of charts on Stocktwits and Twitter were everyone posting charts on the stream. It is very confusing, all you see are charts flying everywhere, people posting some random shit. If you are new to trading, you know what I’m talking about. Things just don’t add up, one day you follow this guy, another day you follow someone else trying to find that edge in trading. Trading is a very difficult business, but it doesn’t have to be. Statistically 95% of traders fail and only 5% succeed and if are those 5% you will become a millionaire in time.
Like everything in life if you want to be successful you have to invest time and money. If you want to become financial independent through stock trading then you have to hone that skill to perfection. Don’t give up because you lose some money the first few years. The road to financial freedom is not easy, there will be obstacles you have encounter, bump you have hop over.
“IF IT WAS SO EASY, EVERYONE WOULD’VE DONE IT”
Apologizing, there will be a lot of grammar error, I never had the chance of graduating college, never pass English 100 either so don’t give me shit for it.
