I apologize for this crazy post. It had to do with a
form of investiong - index trading in the stock market
and should have read battle "scarred."
There are traders at home on their computers develop-
ing trading programs and taking thousands out of the
market each month and occassionally to haywire and
need to get back on track. Thats what the Robbins reference was all about. Ive noticed this can happen to real investors as
well, especially new ones. They leave an area of
expertise and get in trouble etc. Oh well, guess I
blew this one.

Did you hear Tony Robbins the other night on Larry
King?
He advised a client that had made 1/2 Billion
dollars in 1 day! Not you know who that made 1
Billion in a day!
The previous gentleman spent the next 3 years losing
money! And he related how he suggested he get back on
tract.
Real Estate is not that tough thank goodness but
Id like to hear some feedback on this one. It was awesome from someones standpoint that had dealt
with big numbers in more than one field.
Respectively yours.

PUMPATUDE!

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of pumpatude on life.
Pumpatude, to me, is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.
It wil make or break a company… a church… a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the pumpatude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have,and that is our pumpatude…
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
And so it is with you… we are in charge of our pumpatudes”.

Re: DON`T READ THIS - IT’S A WASTE OF TIME - Posted by Irwin

Boy, is this kind of discussion a waste of time and bandwidth or what? I guess some people get off thinking about instant wealth all the time. They even delude themselves into believing all the garbage that’s fed to them on late night TV (and Sunday p.m. too).

Let’s try to be a little smarter and lot more hip than that here. BTW, no need to respond or add on to this little thought. The board goes by fast enough as it is.
