I have been very fortunate to be introduced to iMarketsLive this year – a forex trading company. This opened up the opportunity for me to meet Layth Samarah & Anas Hijjah whilst they’re over here presenting in Australia.

These two twenty-two year old young men are on a whole another level. From humble beginnings and situations they have risen to be leaders of trading forex and business building.

Hear how Anas spent 53 days straight in his car when first launching his IML business.
How Layth raised 250k for a start-up.
How Anas has built a team in the hundreds and soon to be thousands.
How Layth has 100k+ trading days including making 20k whilst 20,000 feet in the air selling gold on the way over here.

This episode is full of extraordinary wisdom and has a very inspiring energy. There were several incredible quotes including:

‘You don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great’ and
‘They way you do anything is the way you do everything’

So grab a notepad and pen and please enjoy this conversation with Layth Samarah & Anas Hijjah

My biggest Take-Aways

  • Go out and find a mentor. Someone who has done it before to teach you (Anas) 12:20
  • You are the average of the 5 people that you hang out with (Anas) 13:10
  • It’s not about how many resources you have, it’s about how resourceful you are with the things that you do have (Anas) 15:10
  • Layth knew nothing about the industry for his new business idea so he made the decision to work hard on it and started with researching every aspect of it 20:20
  • I don’t take opinions from those who don’t have what I want (Layth) 21:35
  • You don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great (Layth) 26:50
  • Your network is your networth (Anas) 28:35
  • If I want what they have I’ve got to do what they do (Layth) 35:20
  • The way you do anything is the way you do everything (Anas) 35:35
  • 1% daily is better than 100% one day then 0% for the rest of the month (Anas) 38:45
  • Be patient and know your worth. Patience pays. (Layth) 42:55
  • There might be an advantage living in the city that you live in, however there are no disadvantages living wherever you live (in the first world) (Anas) 47:30
  • In order to get something that you’ve never had you have to do something that you’ve never done – Layth Samarah (Anas) 52:20
  • Don’t let any obstacle keep you from being successful (Layth) 55:15
  • I love the way Anas refers to these great success coaches and authors as his Mentors – even if they’re no longer alive. It seems to be a way of subconsciously keeping yourself accountable to them as though you need to report back to you mentor that you have applied in your life what they have taught you.
