Hello, everyone. I am new to this forum and this topic really caught my eye because I was just going to make a thread like this. I think a mentor is extremely important for the rapid gain of knowledge, what may take you days to gain may be endowed to you by a mentor in a few hours or even minutes. We have to realize that while we are stuck in a tunnel vision, the mentor has the whole map and knows where we are getting stuck at and how to get us out of that. But for this to happen the mentor needs to be far more knowledgable than you and be able to support you in growing.
I have been trying to find mentors or even people to chat with over this stuff, because a lot of times I just want to have a chat about charts with people, about the price action etc. and I believe one can learn a lot simply by having a small group chat with likeminded people.
I was over on reddit before and I was extremely disappointed by how negative and gatekeeping mindset the people there had, always putting people down and telling people to not enter trading etc. I believe if one wants to proliferate in any field they must get good mentors and good fellows to discuss these things with, because they give you insight in what you know and don’t know and give you a reason to explain everything in detail.
Hope we can keep having such good discussions.
