Why do retail trades expect a FREE RIDE

Over the last couple months being on Youtube , I have to say I am amazed at how this industry is shown and the expectations of the general public. I used to be very active in forums but have now come away from all forums publicly as the toxic element is horrid as the arguments I see are stupid as not one who, throws out the abuse knows anything about doing trading as a living and are unprofitable but when they see my vids are jealous at the returns.

I have to ask the question why does this industry, which if done correctly can be one of the highest paying jobs you will ever have, have an expectation that the the training should be FREE and that you are rich in a couple of clicks?

If you wish to drive , you need to take lessons to learn in order to pass test , or if you are to retrain a new skill to change career you go to night school to learn and pay school fees , so again why would you think trading should be free ?

If you want it put the work in or pay to be trained if you cannot put it together as there are no free rides in this world !!

Little rant caused by 52 emails this morning all asking the same thing “Show me a strategy, I need to be rich” stupid as you will never be rich unless you are prepare to work for it, trading is so much more than strategy

  1. It is not necessary to pay for training . If one is intelligent enough they can find any number of books ( not as expensive as courses advertised by green Lamborghini owners) available. Some forums provide useful advice or discussion but you have to search and sift through any amount of dross to find that useful nugget of information. Notice I use the words’ find’ ‘search’ ‘sift’ etc -all denoting the requirement for research, reading, study and practice. This is where many neophytes fall down; Due to stupidity, laziness, detachment from reality, greed plus, maybe, simple naivety they fall prey to their own delusions and end up as fodder for the bottom feeders out there selling impossible dreams of wealth for bugger all effort.
    You can tell them this but many will only listen to the comment that aligns with their particular delusion.
