    the satisfaction of helping others create wealth from your teachings would eliminate any feelings of unhappiness on my part...

    i'm only 22 so i haven't mentored anyone yet. when my girls become of age i'll teach them if they want to know how. too early to tell at this point.

    i will say, that i have taught my programmer my methodology and it has been a wonderful experience. it's still in the early stages but he's really taken charge with it as opposed to wanting handouts like 99.999% of others would, and i have a new respect for him because of this.

  5. yeah its true. was an extremely bright guy PH.D in stathistics but could never control his emotions. I taught him emotional control thru a series of structured lessons at the local casino and on the trading screen. Needless to say once he learned how to control himself, his statistics background gave him the edge over me and he quickly became much more profitable than me.

    However he is good guy and I recieved his trading system in return for my tutoring. I was very profitable using it for 2yrs or so until the edge disappeared. Performs worse than my standard system now, but i still get my consulting fee
