If you’re an adult living smack in the middle of today’s digital revolution, you’re always being challenged by a need to adapt or face eventual obsolescence. This hard cold reality applies not only to our careers, but to other areas of our lives.
Now, more than ever, if you’re going to adapt to today’s ultra-fast rate of change successfully, you need to be willing to learn, unlearn, and relearn.
Of course, this new paradigm flies in the face of conventional thinking. If you are 35 years or older, you’ve probably been conditioned to believe that you can benefit from the compounding effect of accumulated knowledge and life experience.
Although this conventional way of thinking may still work in some cases, more and more, we’re facing the challenge of having to “unlearn” things we thought would always give us an edge throughout of our lifetime.
The good news is that “unlearning” doesn’t mean you have to throw out all your hard-earned life experience. Or that you start believing that the knowledge that has taken a lifetime to acquire will prevent you from succeeding.
All that’s required to “unlearn” is that you keep your mind open to new and different ways of getting things done.

Take the case of Mark Bemis of Bentonville, Arkansas. Mark is retired from the retail industry where he worked as a project manager. He started trading stocks in the 1990s and netted an occasional profit from his trades. Unfortunately, he depended mostly on stock brokers to choose and execute trades on his behalf.
It wasn’t long until Mark realized that what he thought he knew about stock trading wasn’t going to get him the kind of results he wanted. He faced the fact that he didn’t know how to read charts, how to spot opportunities, or how to research a stock properly.
“I was tired of watching all of my investment going to fees and the highs and lows of the market. I wanted to take charge of my own investments once and for all,” he said.
Luckily, one day Mark discovered Jason Bond on Facebook and started following his teachings. It was that day that he seriously embarked on his quest to learn how to trade stocks the right way.
“I never really understood the charts, but now know what to look for. Jason is a great teacher and bubbles with enthusiasm. Now I’m unlearning what I thought I knew, and relearning the right way. Kyle Dennis is very precise with his research and trades, hope to learn his technique,” he says.
“I was tired of watching all of my investment going to fees and the highs and lows of the market. I wanted to take charge of my own investments once and for all.”
One of the fastest, most effective ways to learn, unlearn and relearn a new skill is to find someone who is already getting the kind of results you’re looking to achieve in the current environment.
In Mark’s case, he was looking for someone with the right education, experience and a verifiable track record of success.
He explained, ”When it came to finding a mentor, I was tired of the same old promises without results. Jason Bond teaches from his losses, instead of hiding them. I hope to join Jason’s Millionaire Roadmap soon.”

Fortunately, Mark had the humility to admit to himself that he didn’t know what was needed to succeed in today’s rapidly-changing stock market.
That, along with his willingness to unlearn and relearn is starting to pay off in the form of higher gains and more self-confidence.
“I’m finally, paying myself. Using the limit orders has made a huge difference in my “wins.” Paper traded for the month of April for a $6,327 win. Personally, sold NVDA for a real $2,755 win. My confidence is improving,” he said.
When asked what advice he would give a trader who’s just starting, Mark recommended, “Learn all you can, use the materials Jason and Kyle make available. You’ll have to work at first, but it will get easier with time. Remember, Jason is a teacher, so do your homework, trade with confidence and celebrate your successes.”

Being able to enjoy retirement without stressing about money is what most investors and traders are looking to achieve. However, it’s essential that you set your sights beyond just surviving financially.
Once you learn how to trade stocks the right way, you’ll have the power to generate a stream of income that can give you the freedom to do just about anything you want to do in life.
Just remember. Although you need to set goals that inspire you to get up in the morning and sit down at your computer to trade, you also need to set realistic expectations while managing investment risk.
Mark Bemis has the right mindset, “As someone who has worked hard all my life, I’m starting conservatively. $1,500 weekly is my income goal. With that, my wife and I’ll be able to travel and do anything without worrying about our retirement portfolio.”
“I’m looking forward to a smoother retirement with less worry. I finally feel like I’m in charge of my own financial destiny,” he says.
