Agree. Many people work very hard to earn the money necessary to sustain the lifestyle from which they would like to escape. Very few work out that the solution is to escape.

Perhaps - instead of going round in circles in this endless nature vs nurture debate - it would be more beneficial to start a thread on "how to become more disciplined?".

Just my 2c...

If everyone would just recognize that I was right and they were wrong we could move on to that CV.

Hi FW

Think you would better be asking................

Question: under what circumstances does failure in discipline let someone down and why did it occur when it was not perhaps a problem earlier

answer: when an individual attempts to step up in class

Class is recognised on sight in an instant by nearly everyone and can be be found in individuals or animals coming from any social background or race. It is pre-determined at birth, and infact is what many of the threads and posts you refer to are infact about.

Traders are not born but individuals are born with Class

Class is what makes them stand out from the field , nothing else. They would stand out in any walk of life, we all no who they are, they no who they are, we meet them every day, its just a fact of life. You try beating an individual with more class than you and unless the difference in ability is marked

YOU WILL LOSE 90% OF THE TIME, same as when 2 dogs meet and one achnowledges the others right to lead by rolling over to allow its soft under belly to be inspected :-)

Trading you are competing with You so stay within your CLASS or you will get F..cked for sure

The guy over there he is refering to is you and me and we don"t need to win Gold to make a living do we, we just need to learn about which class we should be playing in and not put ourselves in positions where our worst faults surface and sabatage us imho.


Just my 2c worth :-)

Very, very good post indeed.

And this prevailing aspects of class is also present in nearly all areas of life. We could take women as an example. Some are just so damn stunning that no matter how badly they dress you still find them sexy. Others could have the best stylists, hairdressers, clothes that money can buy, yet you'd still think: no thank you.

There is nothing to stop individuals trying to strive to be better, and some do get better. What makes this game more difficult is that it's hard to measure one's class since you don't know if you can trust the measures in question.
