My policy on responding to negativity has and always will be the same- ignore it. In recent times however, it seems that there are some facts that need to be presented that prior to this article, have caused much speculation and debate. This article contains the necessary information to put an end to all of this nonsense, and also a little advice to those devoting their lives to trying to bring me/us/other successful people down.
I will go through a few of the common misconceptions.
There is no way she could have money at her age. Takes money to make money. Her parents must have given it to her etc.
Anyone who has read anything I have written knows that the reason I was able to fund my trading account at a young age was because I made a very decent amount of money in my teen years selling eBay products. My parents spilt up in a messy divorce when I was 15, and as a consequence I moved out with my mother who had to start over on a teachers salary (while supporting myself and my brother living at home at the time). Anyone claiming otherwise can now see they are wrong. Robert’s parents may be in a better situation than mine, but they have certainly not funded his current lifestyle. Neither of us have received any funding from our parents. Robert was not a trader and had no trading related connection to IP. He simply helped out with web related content.
If she’s so good at trading and making money, she wouldn’t bother teaching others how to do the same for such a low price.
Essentially, what people with this opinion are implying is that no successful person could ever have good intentions and simply want to help others. Yes, I make good money trading, but it takes up less than 1% of my day. I’m not content going shopping and lazing around for the other 99%. I get a kick out of changing the way others think and making a positive difference in the world. I don’t believe in charging ridiculous amounts for education. If I charged $10,000 each course would these people be more satisfied that I had good intentions. I don’t think so. It might come as a shock but some people like helping others. With this logic these people could argue that if university professors or school teachers are so knowledgable, why do they bother teaching others for such little personal benefit? Maybe because that’s what they want to do?! There are some genuinely good people in the world with good intentions. While some have ulterior motives, not all do. All comments like FDN 2 tell me is that these people have been burned before and are spiteful, closed minded, negative people who are not likely to go very far in life. Nothing more.
In the 5 years IP has been running we have had an amazing response and amazing results. The best people to listen to in regards to the course are students themselves (as often the “reports” etc are written by spiteful people who have not even taken it). We are NOT allowed under our current AFSL to post student results, our own results or discuss any result that is not an aggregate of the whole team and community. We just recently reviewed our website to remove all student interviews and results as we are not allowed to share any of it (good, bad or otherwise) as it implies future results. We would LOVE to showcase our own results and student results but are legally not allowed to do so which is why we encourage people to do a quick search on twitter or instagram and see what our students are saying themselves. We’ve also created an unedited raw album of Snapchats/messages we’ve received from students. CHECK THAT OUT HERE: Infinite Prosperity Student Results
I think the most common misconception is that people misinterpret my experience trading as me essentially saying “trade FX and you’ll be an instant millionaire”. This couldn’t be further from the truth and is why we’re blatantly open about realistic expectations in the first two free lessons. You can check them out here: Infinite Prosperity
We CLEARLY and openly turn people away from the course who have unrealistic expecations or who want to “get rich quick”. Absolutely everything we teach is about providing balanced and realistic expectations in trading and in life and breaking down “fantasies”. This approach is why we have an amazing community of realistic, intelligent and emotionally balanced traders.
Robert bought her Lambo for her. She’s with him for the money.
This one’s easy to debunk. Below is a picture of my car title clearly in the name of Amy Sangster LLC. For those thinking of purchasing an exotic, it’s cheaper to set up an LLC in Montana, register your car there and pay no sales tax. Smart. I make money of my own and have never accepted anything from Robert, other than the gifts we both buy each other. While most are, not everyone is superficial. As much as the haters don’t want to hear or believe it, we fell in love because we think the same way and do amazing things together. End of story.
She’s using sex to sell forex.
So no one that’s half good looking can trade? Solid claim there. Am I supposed to let myself go so my abilities are taken seriously? Yes, I realise I am not your typical looking FX trader but to question someone based on their appearance is ridiculous and incredibly sexist. Despite public opinion hair colour does not determine brains. I graduated at the top of almost every class in high school and am very grateful that I have always found academic tasks quite easy. You’ll notice I barely ever mention FX on social media. This is because Australia has very strict licensing laws and by law I am not allowed to “use sex to sell FX”. I am not allowed to “sell” FX in general. In fact, I am not even allowed to discuss FX results given they could imply future results.
The rich get richer etc etc.
Of course they do! They have a mindset that makes them money! What are they supposed to do, become poorer? No. There’s been studies carried out that show that if the world’s wealth was distributed evenly among everyone, over time, money would end up back in the hands of those that were wealthy prior to the change. Why? Because they know how to make money and they have a mindset that allows them to! Is this any reason to hate someone? No. It all comes down to the way people deal with jealousy.
Here’s some advice and insight into the way negative, cynical people think.
“With our videos and work online in a public setting, we’ve both encountered our fair share of haters. By haters, we’re talking about those who stop at nothing to put you down or belittle your craft. If you’re thinking of doing something outside the box, becoming even slightly successful or expressing any sort of opinion, get ready because they’re coming your way too! The more successful you become, the more haters you’ll face, so it’s important we take a look at why people behave this way.
“Haters don’t really hate you. They hate themselves because you’re a reflection of what they wish to be.”
The number one reason someone will try and put you down is because they are jealous of you. Why not use you as inspiration instead? Because it’s far easier to “hate” someone than it is to learn from them. We’ve discussed this concept before, but it’s important you understand that people rarely take the mature, logical approach. Instead they default to creating a justification as to why they aren’t in the same situation. If a hater can’t find a legitimate reason to put you down, they’ll make something up. There are examples of this all around us. Take a look at Justin Bieber for example.
He receives hate more than almost any celebrity we could think of. So let’s check out his stats to see why. He’s worth $112 million dollars. He’s been nominated for 107 music awards, and won 58 of them. He’s admired by girls all over the world and has a beautiful celebrity girlfriend. He owns a 10,000 square foot mansion in California, along with a Cadillac, Fisker Karma, customized Range Rover, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Porsche Turbo. Oh, and he’s 18 years old.
Of course people hate him! How do you think a 56 year old office worker living paycheck to paycheck feels when confronted with an 18 year old kid who makes 100,000 times more than him in a year? My guess- not too crash hot! So it stands to reason that the more successful (and different) you are, the more people out there you’ll make uncomfortable, and the more hate you’ll receive.
The main thing to keep in mind is to never, ever let it affect you. If you do, you’re giving haters what they want. A sure way to beat them (and piss them off in the process) is to ignore them, work harder than ever before and be happy in the process. At the end of the day, they know who you are and you haven’t heard of them. That right there says it all.”
Now people trying to discredit me is one thing, but by far the most disgusting and inhumane this I have seen is people trying to discredit the bravest man I have ever known. Robert faced cancer for several years and not once did he ever whinge, ask why me or ask for sympathy in any way. He never wanted to burden others with his condition and remained positive until the very end of his physcial existence (I know his spirit is still around me and all of his loved ones). He touched the lives of so many and dealt with so much in private and it makes me beyond sad to see some unfulfilled souls online who knew nothing about him, googling his name and making assumptions based on the very limited amount of information online about him. Some fool has even gone as far as saying he faked his own death. What has humanity come to? He was the most loving and brave man I have ever known and he will always be my hero and a hero to many others. To those discussing him negatively in any way I truly hope you never have to go through something as tragic and gutting as losing the love of your life, or your family member…but if you do stop to think about how you would feel having their name slandered after the fact. Truly gut wrenching and insanely cruel. We should all aspire to emulate his bravery and positivity and use his name as a reminder to spread love. Our days are limited…stop spending them caught up in superficial issues, putting down others and doing things that don’t fulfill you.
As mentioned previously I am not allowed under our Australian Financial Services Licenses to publish my own results or the results of our students. As it stands we have just had to remove all student and staff interviews as even this breaches marketing guidelines. I think this is extremely unfair and would be equivalent to a personal trainer not being allowed to show any client having lost weight as it could be seen as misleading to a potential client. I understand there are a lot of questionable people online so I support the industry being regulated of course, but unlike many others, we adhere to these guidelines as our company, ourselves and our product are required to in order to maintain our license. We highly encourage our students to post their own results so that people can make informed decisions, but they cannot be marketed by us. A quick Instagram or Twitter search should pull up plenty of student results to help better inform you, but unfortunately, I am forbidden to discuss results by law as is any other licensed, law-abiding company. Beware of those posting results as it clearly means they are not licensed or are in breach of their license. We do have an online community for our members and of course they are able to communicate this openly with one another and their trading mentors.
Trading is also no longer my sole source of income nor do we recommend it be anyone’s. We frequently discuss the benefits of multiple income streams. This is no secret. We discuss our other income streams in detail- Lewis even has a YouTube channel dedicated to helping people become financially intelligent. You can view his main channel here: http://youtube.com/lewismocker or his secondary channel here: https://www.youtube.com/lewismockersnaps. We fully advocate turning your values into a profitable business and serving people with your skills. This is what we have done, encourage others to do and will continue to do as we are dedicated to sharing as much knowledge as we can. While we continue to change people’s lives in the capacity that we are we will always be committed to this mission.
Now I realize that this will not stop the haters from hating, if anything it will make them even more spiteful knowing that everything I have and have done is legitimate, but I thought I’d present the above facts so people can make more informed decisions.
I also want to say a big thank you to the hundreds of people who email us each day saying we’ve helped them on the journey to a better life. You’re the reason we bother putting ourselves out there in the first place. If you witness any of the above misconceptions or similar popping up about the place, feel free to link to this article. We love you all and will continue to be there for you guys where ever we can. We are blessed to have such amazing lives and be in the position to motivate others in the capacity that we do, don’t think for a second that we take that lightly.
