I’m not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this. I’ve also seen some posts here that are tragic and makes this seem small in comparison.
I have worked very hard for the past 3 years, not earning a dime, learning my craft (market speculation or trading) more and more. I have always prayed for help, guidance and really have struggled with my family supporting me all along the way, they have been nothing but supportive. Before I got into this business I read articles about a guy that has achieved the success I have always wanted to reach. His interviews and articles is what really helped me leave my former job to pursue this on my own. I was fortunate enough the develop a friendship with him over the past 3 years, which I have learned a lot from and given me inspiration to keep going and learning.
These past few months have been very tough. I have a 4 month old baby who has really changed my perspective on my life. I continued to pray for help and guidance on what I should be doing, continue this career or leave it and go to something more stable. Of course I would prefer to continue this as its my real passion, but I felt like I needed someone in my corner to continue this. I asked God for help, for someone to come into my life at this point to help me along this journey. Well, God has listened and the person that inspired me years ago to get into this business has offered his help, inviting me to join him in his office (versus just email correspondence). This is an opportunity very few people get, and I’m taken aback by this, and since have gotten this been overly emotional about it, not sure why. Most of my life I have had to really fight for things, and this is something that usually doesn’t happen to me. My wife is very supportive and couldn’t be happier, I on the other hand am really torn about this. We would have to sell our home(Chicago), move to a place I’m not familiar with (NYC), take my little girl further away from her grandparents for this. I plan on visiting him in a few weeks, and I am praying for help making this decision as this will be the biggest risk I have ever taken and I do not want to endanger my family by my decision. If anyone can suggest some prayers I would be grateful.
