So, obviously I've been seeing a lot of people in trading that kind of start and then they think that they can do it by themselves at their home. Just trade and trade and trade and become better and they pretty soon found out that it's not really the case. It's not how it works.
The first thing people will experience in that case is a lack of motivation. So they lack the motivation to keep going and that could easily be overcome if you are around other people pushing you to work harder. If you are around people that are thinking big, it's really hard not to think big. It's really hard not to continue when you have doubt or problems, but if you surround yourself with people that always give up or always quit, or you stay alone and you don't have this kind of force to push you to work harder, then it's really hard to motivate yourself. I've found that to be the case. So that was the case for me in trading, but also for some other things.
So, for example, when I started this YouTube channel a few years back, I didn't really kind of want to work on it. At first I was really motivated, want to make it work and work hard on it and push through and make this work. But then, like maybe two, three months after I said like, well my videos get like five views, and I couldn't do much. It's boring, right? But then I was around other people doing the same, doing YouTube videos, pushing stuff online, helping people, and that kind of helped me to work harder, to keep going, and to do the things that I was supposed to do even though I didn't feel like it. Even though it was not the thing that I felt was working right, but they pushed me to work harder.
I'm really glad I was surrounding myself with the right people because I wouldn't be able to impact a lot of you guys today, which is, I think, awesome. So that's the very first thing.
Motivation is big and you gotta surround yourself with people that motivate you to work harder. If not, it's going to be really hard to reach your goals. Now you might have, like me, this kind of fire of wanting to make things work and wanting to work hard. That can keep you on track for a long time, but the main issue you're going to face is you're going to lack the second thing other people can help you with and that is tactics and recommendations. Now, you might say well I can just get this from a book, or like a video online or whatever thing I can find and come across and that's right, but very rarely are you gonna find a recommendation for you, you specifically in a book. And that's just a fact, like you cannot, people cannot have advice exactly for you because they don't know where you are.
They don't know what you've done exactly, and they cannot recommend exactly what you should do. It's like marginal content and that's why I feel like having coach for me was so big, because I read everywhere, all the books where they have to talk about trading and stuff. But I could never really find the thing for me that I was lacking. I knew I was doing things right overall, but I didn't exactly this pinpoint thing that I was missing which was, in that case, for me a bunch of things but including market context which I didn't look at before. Now, all books will tell you, and I thought I was looking at it perfectly, until someone told me you're not doing it right. Do this instead and make it work that way. And that's how I learned.
So, what if you have a problem with this system? And you're stuck at home, trying to brainstorm and think and write down a journal a bunch of ideas. That's a good start but what if you don't come up with the idea yourself? What if you gotta take it from outside and bring back to you from other people you surround yourself with? That can make all the difference and I've seen so much, so often, how people have a problem with some part of their trading, and then they just like, stay there, and then they come across someone that helps them and they get the answer, and they go full speed because they were just lacking a small part that they got from someone else and I think that's why it's like pretty big and pretty massive to surround yourself with other people and that's also why I believe that it's really hard not to succeed alone. Like, there's no such thing as a self-made successful trader or self-made millionaire.
Usually they do it by surrounding themselves with other people. Let's just like pretend that you have the motivation yourself, you can do everything yourself. You have the tactics, all the advice, you get them for yourself because you're like really smart, really on point. But the other thing you'll lack are opportunities. Like, who's gonna give you money to trade? Who's gonna push you to, like, do this job and trade in their firm? Who's gonna give you an opportunity to meet up with their broker and kind of talk with them and meet them in their country and have them pay for the expense? That's not gonna happen. So you gotta surround yourself with people for that part, too. Opportunities, chances, things that you wouldn't be able to get yourself, things that, you either gotta reach out to other people, or you gotta just be out there and do, master your craft, become better. And you'll come across the right people to help you out on the journey, but these are big.
And for me, opportunities have been coming always with different things and that only started when I began to surround myself with other traders and other people and people in the industry overall that kind of taught me things. Maybe they pushed me to think bigger. They kept me motivated. They kinda bring me back on track sometimes and they give me a bunch of opportunities which I'm really glad I had. But the point is that you can do the same if you surround yourself with the right people and if you are willing to take the risk of, of course, getting out there and that's just a fact. If you get out there and tell people that you're a trader some people are gonna reject you and some people are gonna accept you but this fraction of people will be accepting you and they will be helping you with your goals. And that's the people you wanna surround yourself with, those that kind of make it easier for you to succeed and you just have to face the fact that you won't click with everyone but that's fine. That's part of it. So guys, the key point of this whole video is I believe the earlier you surround yourself with traders, the sooner you'll see result. Final point. That's it.
That's the key and I wish you guys can do the same, I wish you can get results as well but you gotta put in the work and take some time to reach out to some people, try to connect with them and see how this goes.
