Simon Popple writes: I think we’re all very familiar with the concept of a “Recipe for Success” or for that matter “Recipe for Failure.” If you follow a certain path in life you invariably get similar results to others who’ve walked the same route. Be it the way you do your job, play your sport or invest your money.
To maximise your chances of success it’s best to emulate those who’ve succeeded rather than those who’ve failed. Although constant practice is no guarantee of success, by repeatedly following a proven process you substantially improve your chances of success. Set yourself up to win.Read full article...

See Dr. Ron Paul Up Close and Personal at the 2013 Casey Summit / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest
He’s never voted to raise taxes. He’s never taken a government-paid junket. And he’s never voted for an unbalanced budget.
He’s Dr. Ron Paul, and he’s always led by example. During his 36 years in Congress, he tried to convince his colleagues to vote along with him against any measure that ran counter to the Constitution. Unfortunately, they seldom did.Read full article... Read full article...

The issue is no longer one of waiting to see what the government is going to do; the real issue is what are we as investors going to do?
When I say the investment paradigm has changed, I’m referring to a combination of factors.
