Zig Ziglar shares the true story of a Texas landowner who was struggling to support his family. A drought and a recession pushed him to his wits end searching for solutions when he was approached by an oil company. They informed him that there might be oil on his land and offered to pay him royalties for permission to drill. With nothing to lose, the landowner agreed.

In those days, oil derricks were built of wood and when you hit a gusher, the force of it would destroy part of the oil derrick. Well, when this gusher came in it destroyed the entire derrick. The drilling was a success as the oil company discovered “Spindletop,” the most productive single oil well in history!

The landowner went from being a pauper to an instant multimillionaire—or did he? Actually the answer is “no.”

“A lot of people have an awful lot underneath the surface, but until they bring it to the marketplace, they'll never realize the full benefit of what they have."
― Zig Ziglar (1926 – 2012)

  14. I watch a lot of YouTube videos and see a lot of traders earning massively and then, I start to wonder what I could possibly be doing wrong because I’ve been trading for couple of months and every trading attempt, seems to be red. I have never seen a green any day,it is very frustrating seeing loses without any profit, so I decided to work a little bit more on my self, and then open a demo account, do my analysis, then the opposite of what I will normally take and get the same result. I’m starting to feel hopeless, any advice from here.

    • I would advise you to get a mentor. And also try incorporating the use oscillator, Bollinger and pivot point in to your strategy. And most importantly move to higher tfs.

    • @Deborah Tyler You are right I do not lose money every single trade, but my main issues is trying to make my runner run up. Very rarely do I catch big movie, instead they go few pipes in my direction. Then go against me even when I try holding them. Also my entries would definitely need a lot of improvement.
      A mentor be a great idea but getting one isn’t as easy as it seems. Sorry if I may ask do you know any genuine one?

    • @Queen Pascal I know one lady, though she is not really a mentor but she is amazing at trading. She used to work for a proprietary firm till she retired. She has been helping me for a long time now, an I have been make $450 bi-weekly, what am trying to say is 5% of traders in the world that are consistently profitable are not on YouTube, there are just random low key people no one even expect. Her name is Regina peters

    • @Deborah Tyler This is interesting I heard certain things about this Regina peters you speak about and her amazing strategy honestly, does she accept beginners?

    • @Richard David Ohh that is great you can reach her Via telegram @investwithreginapeters
