Lessons Worth Millions



( credits to : https://amirzand.deviantart.com/ )


I know I haven't written in a while. I've been on a journey of self discovery and much more - I'll reserve this for another time to give it justice.

What originally was a sharing of life lessons over lunch with some traders ended up with a glimpse of the future.

I have a certain stigma when it comes to brokers. But that changed today when i met people behind COL. Beyond the laggy servers, and all that money, are people who have a genuine heart to serve others. 

Thank you Taylor for introducing me to your family of traders in the 23rd floor - hope to meet and talk to everyone when the right time comes.

To the Lee brothers I met today, and to the founder Edward Lee, thank you for the wisdom you imparted.

If there's one lesson I'll remember until my grave it's this :

Purpose, character and being in the right community (culture) is better than being the best trader out there. 


What would you do if you're in the middle of trading high risk stocks and the founder of an established company visits you and starts imparting wisdom?

Would you choose your profits over a unique moment that will never happen again?

After



I lost a million worth of potential profits today and I didn't care. I'd even say it's the happiest million I spent. The snapshots above were before and after shots of my small port (check the time) - di pa kasama yung big port jan.

  3. With the port youve lost in the past, for sure its nothing and easy for you to deal with. And with your strict rules and risk management I know this is worth it to test for. Still my idol. Almost done with your blog sir.

  5. Whipsawed also Master Zee that time after lunch break. I guess its the same stock - PXP. My boss asked me to help him before the opening of the market and miss the opportunity to cut. Good thing it recovers the next day.

  8. I hope I can also find the community of trader where I can be mentored. Checking on the fb sites most of them are hyper's who want newbies to be stuck with a bad trade.
