It makes me sad when a friend wants to pursue a dream that is in line with yours, the journey could be fun with a close friend besides you, but chose not to pursue his dream because of a shorter term goal and temptation of instant gratification.
Like I always believe, the road to success is a lonely road. You will lose friends because not all people see the same opportunity and the future that you want to see. A successful person is courageous to continue to go on, even after losing all that he has, and even if the journey is his, alone to pursue, he will still go on.
Being focused on a goal is important in any endeavor. Spending all your effort and time on a single business is what makes it successful. See the visionaries of our time. I will be honest with you. Since you have started your way to forex trading. Never expect to earn money with it. Not at least the first few years. Even more if you have another job and doing this part time. That is the truth. Do not expect to beat the market by being a part time trader. Do not expect to be rich with a half-assed effort. Doing that only means you are underestimating the market.
