Michael. Read your post again as if it were not yours and see what advice you would give? It may be that you need more help than you can get here, as it seems from your post that you are afraid to succeed in anything? If you don’t try you can’t win. On the other hand, if you don’t try you can’t fail. That decision, of course is up to you! If you really do want to win, start now and change your attitude. You or anyone, can win if they really want to. All it takes is a minimum amount of intellegence and determination and persistence and more persistence. To quote anonomus “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” I have that posted on my office wall and in plain sight of all who enter, especially my son. My many years of experience have taught me that it is very, very true. People on this site are quite willing to guide to to what you want to do, but YOU have to really want to do it. Now is your chance, make a life bending decision and get with it! One of the most inciteful posters here and I all think we know who that is, not me, although I am willing to try, can give you very good guidence on what it takes to be a successful Investor. Heed and listen! I am sure he is likely to post after reading this. We want to help, but we can only do so if you are willing. I hope this sermon is not too harsh and you will take it in the vein that it is given, to help someone who has indicated that he needs it. If you would like more, please let us know.
