The American Dream

Hey all, this is my first post and was wondering if i could get some insight. I am 19 and have been looking for the right path to follow for my career for at least 3 years now and have finally choosen trading. I strive for excellence and am becoming more desciplined, having been studying for my career over the last year. I hated high school and swore one day i would return rich, so i made a promise to become the best, and am now looking for an intership. Now my question is this at the age of 27 or 28 is it possible to have a well established trading career and be rolling in the big money? I want more then anything to roll up to my 10 or so year High School reunion in a lamborghini, 3 peice suite, looking like the essence of glory. Just was wondering If there was anyone out there that had lived my story?

Yes, plenty of people have done that, and plenty more have tried and failed. The main point of my reply, though, is to imagine someone turning up in a three piece suite.

You might look a bit daft carrying a 3 piece suite into your reunion, go for an arm chair instead.

You can all take the P**s but you've obviously mis understood what he wants..

I see exactly how he wants to turn up to that special re-union and if I had the money I'd do the same...

You could hire the Lambo for the day & I don't suppose anyone would know the difference.

I think you have clear self esteem issues which, once addressed, will make you want to turn up for your reunion in plain dress by taxi cab with the quiet knowlege that your Lambo's are tucked up safely in the 5 car garage back home at your mansion.

Its an excellent ambition. Contrary to whay many so-called wiser heads will tell you, wealth is an excellent objective in life, and may be the one to aim for first, then it will be easier and more fun for you to achieve the others. I wish you sincere good luck.

Hi Jib80,
I agree with tomortons sentiments.
As your just 19, I would recommend you purchase and read ' The Richest Man in Babylon ' by George S Clason ISBN 0-451-16520-9 its a paperback. Read it repeatedly until you almost know it by heart and mark it up with comments and notes.

At 19 years old, please, please live by his words:

"Ten percent of all you earn is yours to keep".

From the heart,
Neil
