I've been in global markets for 37 years now as an analyst, trader, and consultant, and if there's one thing I've learned, it's that personal success – to be clear, I'm talking about big, life-changing profits – comes from something a lot of investors fail to grasp.
The single most important thing you can do as an investor is to realize that wealth is a choice… but getting there is a skill.
Let me repeat that: Wealth is a choice, but getting there is a skill.
You have to work at it, just like studying for an exam or going to the gym. You don't pass Nuclear Physics 201 without significant effort any more than you'll look like Arnold Schwarzenegger without lifting weights.
Unfortunately, too many investors fixate on shortcuts or "magical" systems – things that somehow promise fast, easy returns but that all too often end in frustration and loss.
The way to really "get there" is to put in the work and learn. But as I'll show you in just a second, it doesn't have to be anywhere near as difficult or expensive as you might think.
