My New Challenge. I’ll have a detailed blog post later this week explaining my trading accounts and goals for 2018, but I was just informed by my favorite charity, Pencils of Promise, about a VERY staggering number, as I just wrote here:

I’ve worked my butt off for the past 20 years making millions (see every trade here) while learning from my mistakes, all while traveling to 110+ countries and creating several millionaire students now in just a few years of teaching, but it’s my charity foundation that I began just 2.5 years ago that has now built over 3 dozen schools that I’m proudest of…as you can see from this new video made by my favorite charity Pencils of Promise, with whom I have 22 schools built, these schools now teach nearly 34,000 kids EVERY DAY…kids who previously had no chance at education:
My goal is to build 1,000+ schools so this is truly just the beginning….my Millionaireand creating millionaires from scratch is my passion, but now I’m issuing myself a new challenge…to build enough schools for 1 million kids to attend and learn at every single day!
You see, I knew that the 22 schools my charity has built with Pencils of Promise, see more details about my schools and donation here, and the 14 schools I’ve built with other charities supported thousands of kids, but I had NO IDEA that the total number of kids at my schools was nearly 34,000!
I was thinking it was more like 5,000 or 10,000 or 15,000 max, but now that I think about it, it makes sense and it blows my mind of what a few million dollars can do in third world countries as you must remember it’s not just about any one child getting an education, it’s reversing the trend that exists in FAR too many communities where too many children have no chance at education and so they’re condemned to live their life in poverty while trying to scrape by at menial labor jobs, and that cycle continues generation after generation after generation…and now thanks to these schools we’re not just temporarily stopping that cycle, we’re decimating it as I want every generation, and generation after generations to have the ability to get educated and focus on whatever it is they love in life as THAT is the key to my success and the key to my Millionaire students’ success — by being able to learn and stimulate our brains, we get to see what we like and what we don’t like and when we put our minds and dedication to studying, and mastering, what we do enjoy, it no longer becomes work and so the money basically is bound to come to us over time as we become experts in our subject of choice.
Remember, mastering ANY topic, let alone an ever-changing inexact-science-more-of-an-art like the stock market and finance, is not easy, so you’re gonna have dedicate not just a few hours, or even a few dozen or even a few hundred hours of study, try more like thousands or tens of thousands of hours before you can get good enough where your skill level basically makes it a predetermined right for you to make six or seven or even eight or nine figures per year (different industries have different levels of income), but as you’ll learn truly the hard way, once you have enough money to live off of, it lessens in importance as the true luxury in life is being able to do what you love every single day and deal with people you enjoy…as life is too short to spend too much time on anything you don’t love and to deal with people you don’t want to deal with.
So, I’m writing this post for several reasons, 1.) to make it clear my goal to educate 1 million children across the world…given my other charitable donations outside of Pencils of Promise, I’m roughly at 40,000 to 45,000 kids in schools every day so still just less than 5% of the way there so far 2.) to help you understand how much work it takes to actually achieve your goals, especially when your goals are as big as mine 3.) to help you understand how grateful I am for the opportunity to teach, trade stocks, travel and support the causes that are important to me and 4.) to help inspire you to chase your own dreams and goals, whatever they might be!
And because we ALL have to slug through long marathons of learning, adapting and refining our techniques in our chosen profession, be ready for haters, negative people and even self-doubt along the way, so it’s imperative that you keep your head held high and always focus on your goals as there will be ups and downs along the way (you’re catching me during a rather strong up move so everything looks all rosy, but it’s not always this way) and you must be prepared to ride them all out if you want to ultimately achieve what you set out to do.
Please do tell me and post what your ultimate goals in life are in the comments section below, whatever they are, state them clearly and positively (and understand that they can change and you can adapt your goals along the way, for example, I had no idea I was going to be a teacher, I just always loved stock trading, but thanks to the success of several TV shows I’ve been in, I realized the need for trading education, especially in the lowly penny stock field, so I adapted and am s thankful I did as teaching you while I also still trade is far ore fulfilling than solely just trading) then work your butt off every single day to actually achieving them!
