Are you waiting for your government to save you? Are you waiting to win the lottery? Are you ready to win on the horses? Or are you ready to leave that whole mindset behind and do something to look after yourself and protect your future? Let’s talk about that more right now. Hey there traders. It’s Andrew Mitchem here at the Forex Trading Coach with video and podcast number 473. Come outside again today, such a beautiful day. Couldn’t film inside at the charts.
A quote from Robert Kiyosaki
I wanted to read something for you and it’s come from someone who I’ve followed for years and years. You probably know him, a guy called Robert Kiyosaki, who wrote the Rich Dad, Poor Dad books, someone that I followed years ago and I credit a lot of the way that I think and finances, et cetera, to Robert Kiyosaki. So I’d like to read this. I haven’t asked for permission for this. This is just something he’s emailed through to his list of which I’m one of, so I’m going to read it out for you anyway, and I think it’s really relevant for us as Forex Traders. So here we go.
It’s a good time to be alive
Robert says, “We are all being bombarded with bad news, bad advice, and people telling us how bad things are. I don’t buy it. I’m tired of it. The media and the governments of the world are telling people that we need to be saved. I even feel they’re trying to control me. I’d like to offer a different mindset for you. Yes, we’ve all had challenges, but I’m optimistic, and I think this is a great time to be alive. And instead of telling you to wait for the government to save you, it’s time to save yourself. There has never been a more important time for you to stop wanting or waiting on the government or your employer or others to provide for you or your family and your financial future. They can’t save you. They won’t save you, and the truth is no one cares about your financial future like you do, or you should do. It’s time to save yourself. You know it and I know it. Take control of your financial future, get yourself educated, surround yourself for people who are doing the same thing and leave the victim mindset behind.” And I read that and I thought that’s such a short but powerful and true statement.
Wanting more handouts
The victim mentality and mindset’s everywhere. People were just after more and more handouts from governments. They think the government’s going to save them. They think they’ve done that with the health over the last two years. No, they haven’t. They think you’re going to get payouts from them. No, it’s your money after all. Everybody who’s paid taxes pays into it. All they’re doing is creating debt. If you think that some government retirement scheme or anything like that’s going to protect you, who knows by the time that we get to retire, there may not even be retirement funds. Some countries there aren’t anyway.
So what he said there is absolute truth. No one cares about your finances. You do and you should do, but no one else really cares. No one’s going to come running and protect you. No one’s going to come giving you this sort of golden handshake or this golden payout that you might think you are due. So what are you going to do about it? And that’s what I love about Robert Kiyosaki’s mentality and the way that he’s always sort of talked and got people to think for themselves, think slightly differently, think differently from the mainstream way of thinking, the way that you probably didn’t get taught finances at school. You’ve got to think slightly differently.
Forex is a way to help you achieve cash flow
And to me, Forex is one of those ways that you can achieve that. Yes, there are other ways there’s businesses, there’s properties, there’s all sorts of other things, but Forex in terms of cash flow and the ability to not work X number of dollars for so much time offers something that a lot of other businesses don’t offer. But having said that, you have to know what to do, and his last line said, “Get yourself educated, surround yourself for people who are doing the same thing.” And that’s where I think here at the Forex Training Coach, we’re different and we help so many people because we do have a community of like-minded people all doing the same thing, all looking for the same goals, and that’s where we help each other with our forum site, with trades that we post to each other.
Trades get posted on our Forum site
I’m forever finding trades on our form site that other people have put on there during the day. And I go, “Wow, that’s a good trade. I wasn’t looking at the charts at that time.” And I go and take the trade and profit from it. And it’s like, all I did was just got notified on the forum site. So look, lots of ways that we can help you to achieve your goals and to basically be self-sufficient, educate yourself, surround yourself with like-minded people who are out there trying to achieve things. So that’s my educational piece for this week.
And if you’re looking for a new broker, somewhere to place your funds, I can highly recommend Blueberry Markets. They’re based over in Australia. We offer the MT4 and MT5 platform. I absolutely love their MT5 platform because it offers so many more markets for us to be able to trade and take advantage of. If the Forex market’s a little bit quiet, then you’ll find that the cryptos or the indices markets have been really good. And we’ve had trades this week on copper and natural gas and some of the American indices as well as the Forex markets. So have a look at Blueberry Markets. I’ll put a link to them on this video and post. Have a great week. I’ll see next week. Bye for now.
