Those of you who have attended my seminars remember me always repeating this statement…If there is 5 people in a room. 4 of them are Kingdom Minded Billionaires. You hang around them everyday. You pray with them, eat with them, live like them and do Business like them…95% chance you will die a Billionaire. But if there is 5 people in a room 4 of them are Broke Minded Millionaires. You hang around them everyday. You pray with them, eat with, live like them and do business with them…95% chance you will die a Broke Minded Millionaire. If you were born broke it’s not your fault…but if you die broke it’s definitely going to be your fault because it’s not about you. It’s about what are your kids going to inherit. In order to leave a Legacy you need to inherit and give birth to a new DNA and Heritage. A different mindset and behavior that you can only learn from those who have done the same. Don’t forget where you come from. Jesus did not die so you can sell your birthright. Come back to your senses child of God. Change the way you are thinking. Understand your Calling. Ask yourself why do you want to be Rich? Would you be willing to build Wealth and be willing to give it all away only to start again. If the answer is NO! Then you not ready to be a Kingdom Millionaire or Billionaire. God expects much more from You. The whole world needs you. Enlarge your vision. #LevelUp

The above list of some of the most successful traders does serve as an inspiration to many forex traders. However, forex trading is not about making money quickly. It involves lots of patience, perseverance, and practice to make it big in this highly volatile trading marketing. Thus, it is much more than patterns, charts, ratios, and numbers. Novice traders need to practice and consider a few factors which will help them reach the top.
