Watch the video 10 Secrets to Achieve Financial Success on YouTube. I suggest you watch the interview at least a couple of times before you write your response. We always miss important and interesting details when we read, watch or listen to something only once.
This is an interview with trading educator Anton Kriel.
Also read article on the power of “no”. The idea in this short article goes well with the ideas Kriel presents in his interview.
Topic For Composition Exercise #2:
At six minutes into the video interview we get an idea of the theme/purpose of the video. Why does Anton Kriel want to do this interview? The video is less about trading and the “narrow issues” of respecting money, assets and liabilities, alternative education, mainstream media, etc. and more about “wider issues”. What are these “wider issues”? Which one of the ten “secrets” do you find most useful and how could you apply it to your life? Please answer these questions and explain your answers. Also quote from the video.
For your composition exercises please write:
1. (format) a 500-word composition. Use Courier New, 12-point font and double space and MLA style.
2. (content) Your composition needs an answer and specific details for each question in the topic. Within your 500-word limit you must cite from the material you’ve read and/or watched to support your ideas. As Abraham Lincoln wrote, “It is a pleasure to be able to quote lines to fit any occasion.” Use two-three quotes from the sources in your composition to “fit” your interpretation of the material.
3. (focus) Stay focused on the topic. Everything you write should have a connection to the topic and your ideas.
4. (clarity) When you proofread check for common errors like fragments, run-on’s, commonly confused words, tense shift, subject-verb disagreement, spelling, etc. Try to adhere to the KISS Principle. This means keep your sentences short and simple and divide your composition into short easy to read paragraphs.
