then clearly you don't get the concept of giving back and the benefits of a mentoring cycle........god help us if everyone had your mindset

N
No i get that but you wont be asking money for your time as a mentor ... or at least it wont be your main concern ... otherwise it wont be called giving .

a very large generalisation there N. Some of us have the desire and motivation to succeed. There were no mentors in my field that helped me along the way. If anything there were many who said i could never do it.
Sure I had people to look up to, to aspire to, but they would never have known it.
fair comment M .........

but would you call yourself in the top 1% of traders worth multi-millions ? ........My comment with respect is talking about people at the top of their profession requiring mentoring to get/stay there

none of us at T2win are in that league I suspect

If you are a really good trader you wont be mentoring for the money ...

Anyway the question is can a trader become fully successful from mentoring ? The answer is no , may improve a bit yes ofcourse , but to turn into a really good trader no . Trading is a journey that lasts for years - lifetime - and the learning process never ends , the mentor wont always be there for you , its not practical .

not in trading no, but am I am in the top 1% of my field yes. And no mentoring got me here. just dedication and perseverance. I'm generalising here of course if I say that if it can be done in one field, then it could be done others
I have my methodology so its just time for me to reach a level of success, but needless to say it won't be in a top 1% but success is relative imo

Inspiration and motivation - they don't even need to be trading related, they don't need to be paid for, and they may not even know the role they are playing
( mentors that is).

The hunger must come from the individual, first and foremost.

agreed ............mentors will recognise this and demand it before they even consider helping............raw talent is a must as well ....waste of time all round to try to teach people who will fail

Hi,
Ask yourself honestly....are you asking this question because you feel lost when it comes to trading?

It takes a long time to work out your own style, what your inclined towards in terms of methodology,

But at the end of the day.....if you bother to go through the actual process of getting to this point,

You will be able to answer the questions you need answered by yourself.

No person trades like any other person....there is a good reason for this, we are unique individuals.

So how can you expect to be taught a complete method by any one person.

You may find, as I did, that you study many....reject most, and stick with maybe two or three mentors

whose styles your happier following and then adopting to suite your own style.

If you can't be bothere going through this process, and it's not just learnings echinacea ability,

It's learning all the aspects of trading that can't be taught, it's ironing out the kinks in your own

Psychology and gut that help and hinder you.....it's the streetwise stuff that is as important.....

You have to lose money over many years in some cases to learn what not to do. We are stubborn

creatures,

There are for most of us no short cuts.....

You can't beat the best by being a short cutter......or lazy

If you give up before you've sweated through this process, and felt like giving up many times but got

back up to try and try again.....then you'll probably not make it......it's not for everybody.....

I won't give up.....ever.........what about you? Ask yourself honestly....then get back to doing the hard

yards ok ......no secrets to be learnt here......
