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.
Let’s treat this like an FDN (similar to FAQ’s, but standing for Frequently Discussed Nonsense).
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 our book Far From It will know 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 the statement in the FFI promo video is untrue (regarding not having rich parents), can now see they are wrong. Robert’s parents may be in a better situation than mine, but the statement meant that they were not the reason we are where we are today. Neither of us have received any funding from our parents.
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. Shock horror- 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.
Far From it is a scam. She and Robert are scamming people.
We wrote a motivational book that many people were asking for, detailing our stories and included advice for others wanting a similar lifestyle. We also created a forum for our members, where we connect with everyone and help them out where needed. Let’s get this straight. We are not obligated to help other people. We didn’t have to spend months writing a book that was for the benefit of others. We wanted to. We charge a price, because our time is valuable, just like everyone else’s. It is not a get rich quick book. We never claim that if you do A,B and C you will be rich. We claim the opposite, that everyone needs to take their own path. People wanting to have success handed to them in a simple formula would be disappointed, of course. The formula is different for everyone, which we state in the book. We simply compiled information on our mindset and abilities which allowed us to get to the point we’re both at today and presented it in advice form for others. Oh and it has a 60 day money back guarantee- you mean if I have an issue I can get my money back?! Yep, what a scam. Bottom line: Anything self help related will be called a scam by those who are closed minded, or simply want a get rich quick strategy.
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. What a joke!
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. It’s from our book, so consider it a free sample from my “scam”.
“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 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 Robert and I 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 FDN’s 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.
Robert has a few things he’d to clear up as well, so keep an eye on his blog.
