Don't be sad, they're probably just busy. They wouldn't be good in their chosen field if all they do is reply to people, right? They're passionate individuals with laser-focused goals but still keep a balanced life.
They have allotted time for studying, planning, executing, tracking, evaluating and improving their system and strategies, not to mention their time for their career, family, friends, self-development and other interests perhaps like politics, reading, movies or baking like mine.
Sabi nga nila, "Time is the most valuable commodity."
Minsan, may mga nagme-message pa sa kanila ng negative remarks kaya 'wag na rin po kayo magtaka na minsan parang wala din yata sa mood si Sir/Ma'am. Pero I'm sure na masaya sila kapag nakatulong sila sa kapwa.
That's why I'd like to thank the LODIs that replied to my message when I was asking for books that they would recommend.
That's just one of the challenges of being a mentor. You always have to live up to people's expectations. Kahit na busilak pa ang hangarin mo, minsan mami-misunderstood ka pa rin talaga.
Kaya naman I politely declined my mentor's offer to lead the group and mentor the other students. As a "Facilitator Of Learning" [ito ang tawag namin sa mga teachers sa aking Alma Mater], discussing one topic after another is like a second nature to me since my course in college was Education.
However, teaching investing and trading is a totally different thing. Pera ang pinaguusapan dito, pera ko at pera ng tuturuan ko. So, I left the group. May ibang mentors naman. Sila na muna bahala hehe
Can you just imagine the weight of responsibility the mentors are carrying on their shoulders?
During and after the lecture, syempre may mga tanong ang mga students and I was able to answer most of their questions pero hindi lahat nasagot ko. Kaya kahit masarap magturo at makatulong sa maliit na paraan, I decided to take a step back in order to see the bigger picture; because only then I can move forward.
I need to acquire more skills [not just knowledge] and wisdom [not just experience] in order to give more.
With my current circumstances, I couldn't think of any other way to study and master this field while helping my fellow kabayans, aside from blogging.
Let me share a few pictures of my first lecture about stock market last June 28, 2018. This is the third batch of students in our small community of traders and investors.
Kung kelan ako ulit makakapagturo, depende 'yan.
Ikaw... Handa ka na ba?!
Please find time to read our MANIFESTO: THE LEAGUE OF PINOY STOCK MARKET STUDENTS.
Para sa amin, hindi kailangan na maging boring at kumplikado ang pagaaral ng stock market investment at trading. Tara, group study tayo mga kabayan! Let's all INVESTINFUN!
