    I lost 20K before I woke to discipline. Took all but 5k out of my account and it went to $3500. Started disciplining with the tools Adam teaches and my last 6 of 8 trades made about 1k but my losses were less then 100 bucks.

    This is the realest, most truthful video on investing I've ever seen! Emotions have played a major part of my failures. I"m getting better though, and videos like these are priceless because it gives you the courage to stick to your guns. Thank you Adam Khoo!!

    You are a wonderful teacher. Thanks for making these videos.
    Only improvement feedback I have is to re-organize your "Stock trading and investing strategies" playlist so that a subscriber can follow it like a series of lessons in chronological order. Currently I am having a hard time trying to figure out which video of yours I need to watch next (and the next and so on).

    I've been trading for the last 24 years with very little success. Partly because it's only been a hobby of sorts, but mostly because of no plan. It's only in the last 3 months that I have discovered the need for a plan which I am now developing. That alone has made a huge difference.
    I was introduced to this ESclips channel over the weekend, and spent quite a bit of time watching his teaching vids. I really like Adams style and have subscribed. I have been trading a paper account while I develop my system, and have done amazingly well so far (wayyyy better than before). I am confident this guy will help me improve even more. My suggestion: if you don't trade with a plan, don't trade. If you want to trade, then learn this plan and trade it religiously.

    I was wondering, Adam, how do you decide your profit goal? You mentioned 2R or 3R. Do you start with 2R and look over many trades to see if you are leaving profit on the table?

    And this is what happens when you're trading in a live account. Your emotions are high. This makes you not to exploit your full profits. Ask yourself; - why do you win in demo account but on live account you lose? The answer is because your emotions are in check. There is nothing to lose. Your risk management should be consistent to avoid this.
