Whenever this time of year rolls around, I find myself with an attitude of gratitude. This week we celebrated Thanksgiving Day. Although "Thanksgiving" is not celebrated here in Uruguay, many living here celebrated at various places around the country. There were at least fifty people at the gathering my wife and I went to.
Trading and markets have been a major part of my life for almost 60 years. Trading has been the means through which my family and I have received many blessings.
I am grateful that I’ve been able to share those blessings with my many students. I am thankful for each and every one of you. Trading can be a lonely business, especially if you selfishly keep entirely to yourself what you know and have learned. At Trading Educators, it’s just not in us to be that way.
I wonder if you realize how rare it is to find traders, who are not only successful with their own trading, but are also willing to help others to achieve success?
A few days ago, as I was looking at our website, I stumbled across a brief statement of our philosophy at Trading Educators. I wonder how many of you have read it, and have truly given it some serious thought?
"Teach our students the truth in trading — teach them how to trade,"
"Give them a way to earn while they learn — realizing that it takes time to develop a successful trader."
All of our staff and associates truly believe in these ideas, and we work hard to bring you the best we have to offer because your success is our success.
Having been through the steps ourselves, we know how difficult it can be to one day realize that you are able to trade for a living - to realize that you have finally made it! There are so many times when you are ready to give up; So many times when you feel defeated. Trading looks easy, but once you are involved you realize that it takes great dedication, and persistence to reach the top. The toughest part of trading is learning to master yourself.
We want to encourage you to keep at it. Don’t give up. The rewards are greater than you think.
For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving Day, we hope it was a terrific day for you. For those of you who live in countries where there is no Thanksgiving Day, perhaps you should give it a try. Set aside a day to be thankful for what you have. Everyone has something to be thankful for. At Trading Educators we are thankful that we have so much to share with all of you.
As always, wishing you all the best,
