Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Ryan discussed on 77WABC Programming
Trading Academy, really shed some light on our overall market activity, and what we need to be doing individual investors out there to really be able to benefit from what's going on in the market, whether it's going up whether it's going down or whether the market is moving we're joking around a little bit at the beginning of that about being able to predict the market, and that's one of my favorite things. They'll just kind of talk about because it does really help simplify the market as individuals. We've spent the last two hundred years overcomplicating things really and saying, oh, it can't be that simple. You know, rather than just going? Well, you know, what it's either going to go up or down. Right. I mean, that's it. It's going to go up down. We need to have a plan for that could stay the same as well. But for the most part it goes up or it goes down. We have a plan for whatever either one of those. And then no one to execute. It really what ends up being kind of the knowing when to execute it. And having the ability to execute it ended up being the things that really have to work into and getting. Process in place. But one of the things Larry we were just kind of ending that last segment you're talking about, you know, do people have do people have all of the luck. People have all the luck know people make their own luck even kind of left with a a tagline that one of my mentors said said to a group at one point the harder. I work the luckier I seem to get it kind of ties into some of those kind of fun cliche things that we talk about. If you always do what you've done, you'll always get what you got, you know, those kind of fun topics if you want something different, right? We've got to do something different. If you're completely satisfied with your financial situation, and the and the trajectory that it's on one hundred percent, you don't have any worries. There's no reason to change anything. However, if you want more it's safe to say, you have to be willing to do a little bit more or do something different. Right. But what are some of the things I guess when you're talking about people have all the luck. When you're talking about, you know, skill sets different things like that. What are some of the keys some of the points? You really wanted to hit on as we were kind of ending that last segment we talked to people who are really sick. Zestful tends to come down to one thing their commitment is greater than their I q. And so when you think about it, and you think about people who are out there, and you can take a number of people like Steve Jobs. Mark Zuckerberg Jeff basis, they didn't start off being multi-billionaire as they had to sit down come up with a plan commit to that plan. And then figure out whatever it took to implement that plan. And what you think about is the fact that if I gave you give Ryan same quiz. I give a lot of my students when I start off. Okay. What do Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates all have in common? It's not that they're billionaires. They started multibillion dollar companies dropouts. Yep. They all dropped out of school. And when you think about that when you probably ask them, they probably would tell you. They didn't learn what they needed to learn to get them to where they are today. And so it really comes down to is. It's not about working hard. It's not about working smart. It's about learning how to work, right? And one of the things we do here at the academy is that we allow our students. To come to a place where they can learn step-by-step strategies designed to help them make the right decisions and side the financial markets. And so we help students develop skills that can help them generate income and build their confidence toward their retirement goals. And so if you're somebody out there that has felt like you've been stuck you have obstacles. And by the way. May I digress. For a second. -absolutely a lot of times you got to remember. Okay. That people think making money in the markets is about making money. It's really not about freedom. And you've heard me say this a lot Ryan a lot of our students come in. And you ask them what they really want. They want more time. They want more time with their family to do the things. They love take vacations. Donate their times help others, and sadly because we seem to be in this hamster wheel world right now, especially here in the states where every moment, we gotta be doing something. We don't have the time anymore. This kind of sit back and enjoy life. And that's really I think the goal of most people is how can I get a life that I love every single day surrounded by people who love and support me and one of the ways you can do that by investing in yourself and getting the education competence to be able to do something doesn't require you to take a lot of time in dated -ccomplish. Yeah. And I mean, we both think some of these studies million times where it's like if you have one or the other would it be? More time or more money. I mean, it's a landslide victory people always say more time because usually they need to generate more money. So they can have more time if they could just get more time that'd be even better. But still be able to kind of make ends meet I guess and be able to reach those reach that specific lifestyle or have those those basic needs actually being met while still having that free time. But yeah, landslide across the board. It's all about what the money can do. It's not about the money. And so many times I've had the conversation with the new students. You know, what are you looking to do what you're where some of the goals? What are you focusing on the? Oh, yeah. I wanna make a little bit more money. But so then we talked a lot about the why we talk a lot about the why they won't. But why do you wanna do that? Because it goes back to, you know, having having a how sometimes well, that's how I have to do it. Well, that's that's that's maybe takes a little bit of time. Takes a little bit effort. Right. Take some commitment. Right. And so the why has to be bigger than the how the why the reason for doing something the motivating factor has to be bigger than more important to us than the work to get there. It's not about I q it's really about why q. Yeah. Absolutely. And it just ends up. We have to have that drive. And there's an interesting book the read a while. I wish I could give the author credit. I can't remember my head. But what got you here won't get you there. And there's so many great pieces of information that that talk about really continuing your Evelyn of as an individual, whether that's spiritual. Whether that's financial whether that's you know, we could go through all these different kind of points where it's always keeping the ball ball rolling. We'd go back to one of the oldest cliches sayings in the book the Rolling Stone gathers. No moss. Right. And so as long as you're keeping that momentum going, you're growing, your growing, your growing Marshall Goldsmith think tank, you just had a little little tweet in my ear of to give Marcia Smith credit for for the book. What got you here won't get you there. Right. Keep the momentum going keep your foot to the to the pedal and keep growing, you know, financially, spiritually, however, physically whatever it is that you're trying to accomplish you have to keep that momentum. Going all starts with number one learning how to do it right in the number to doing it. No me. Matter what it is. No matter what kind of part, we're talking about in their learn how to do it. And then go in apply. Right. Because knowledge is not power applied knowledge is power. But one of the things that we could do right now if you are up for it. We could do a quick little giveaway and help a few people get that that knowledge base started as far as the financial markets go with tickets to one of our half day classes. Let's get started. All right. Well, right now, I've got.
