Our Blog

Well, here it goes—the intention is to write a Sunday blog entry about my previous week’s experiences at the Forex365 Institute where I’m a teacher and student.

 

So, what’s up this inaugural Sunday?  I’m going to start with my favorite quote about education and learning—“when the student is ready the teacher will appear.”  I’m confident that we’ve all had such experiences in our lives.  It’s a specific example of the general Law of  Attraction (“like attracts like”).

 

Anyone who has been to our institute knows we have a fantastic and open culture.  Students are encouraged to freely ask questions both in person and online.  This open culture is one of the aspects of which I am most proud.  However, if we can create even more  “when the student is ready the teacher will appear” moments, we can speed up the learning curve for our students.  The good news is that we can do it.  How?  By, all of us, more actively participating in the educational process.

 

The encouragement to our students to pursue higher and higher levels of active participation is all around us.  We teach The Successful  Forex Trader’s Personal Constitution which includes, “I continue to educate myself on how the market works.”  In my opinion, to be most effective, this should not be done alone in silence, but, with the help and enthusiastic encouragement of fellow students, mentors and teachers.  The Forex Institute Rules include, “Always … Help and mentor fellow students.”

 

I’m urging all of us as like-minded individuals to contribute to our like-minded community by consciously deciding to increase the pace and depth of  our professional Forex currency trading educations.  Specifically, reinvigorate your initial enthusiasm and excitement about learning to trade by gathering your courage to ask more questions, make more statements, share more trades for analysis.  Let’s grow technically (by discussing our tools—the charts and indicators) and emotionally by sharing our mindset thoughts and feelings experienced during the trading sessions.

 

More “when the student is ready the teacher will appear” experiences can only be a good thing for all of us as we pursue excellence and success as professional Forex currency traders mastering our destinies by mastering our trading tool-sets, skill-sets and mind-sets.
