Meet Yeifry Garcia
To become a full-time trader, it takes courage. It also takes skill, hard work, and perseverance. It takes many things, of which Mr. Yeifry Garcia knows and absolutely does not back away from. He is one of the most inspiring traders we have come across within the TMC Community since inception in 2018. Yeifry's story sings a similar tune to Irek's, in that the pursuit of trading is number 1 and all else is secondary. Failure is not an option, and self-belief reigns above all else. We commend Yeifry greatly on his incredible & inspiring journey thus far. Check out the full interview below!
When did your trading journey first begin?
My trading journey began back in 2017 when the Bitcoin frenzy started. It was a time when I thought all of my financial dreams were going to be realized in a way never seen by me. Then it all collapsed and I had no idea why it did, all I could do is sell what I had left and walk away back to my reality with yet another loss in the pursuit of financial freedom. After that event, I started to wonder why I was limited or not in control of my outcomes every time I tried to grow the money I had coming from my 9-5 and a small rental property which was beautifully cash flowing, yet still I lost every time I pushed a bit higher. In April 2019, I came across the Trading MasterClass introduction video, something inside me felt that this was exactly what I was looking for so I signed up and have not looked back ever since.
What was it that made you want to pursue trading?
The possibilities of trading money to make more money and not my time for it was the answer. Trading offered me a better way to gain financial freedom but more important of all was the time freedom to really enjoy the financial side of it. I was already making good money so I thought, because I had a secure job with the federal government plus 5 years of military time, I was very comfortable knowing that my income was going to be there no matter what. Saving, 401k and all the benefits were great, yet the time span was too long and the time to enjoy it all was also out of my control. I looked at everyone around me at my job and hearing their stories and seeing their results scared me because we had similar plans... so for me it was simple, I didn’t want to end up with money, no control, no time or the right age to enjoy it, and above all regrets of not really knowing what it is really to be free and in control of my present/future.
What is something unexpected that you love about trading?
I love how trading forced me to level up in all aspects of my life. From the first day that I was officially full time, my growth started. In a short time I found myself discovering feelings/emotions I never thought I had or never thought I had control of. I started to meditate daily, to follow daily routines, to have self accountability and believe more in me due to the daily practice.
I love how trading made me see money in a better light, not the one I was accustomed to being scared of and thinking of pain when it came to it. Trading showed me a pool full of an abundance of opportunities, all I’m required is to have the mindset. I love that.

What are one to three books that have profoundly impacted your journey? Why?
The moment I started my journey with TMC I made it a must to read everything ’TMC’ recommended. I had read many books on real estate and found myself doing that so I committed myself to read everything I could in my trading journey. Three books that impacted my life to the fullest when it came to taking action and believing I can make it all happen are:
There are many other books on that list but those books in the order they are is exactly how it impacted me. After reading I just surrendered to the process. I decided that I was going to take action and become a full-time day trader. After about 6 months of TMC, then MasterClass 2.0 was born and that was the month I decided to just become my thoughts and not worry about its fulfillment. I knew that it was going to take time to see it manifest and I was willing to find out instead of waiting until I’m old with no desire to do what I can do now that I’m young. Those books made me believe in such a way that I didn’t think it through. November 2019 I quit my most secured income and walked away from that beautiful life I had built to create a better one believing that it is possible. That same month my family and I moved from NYC to Florida with the belief that we can create our reality by changing our environment and just be today what we wanted to become tomorrow.
What new belief, behaviour, or habit has helped you gain the most forward momentum since becoming a trader?
To have faith in me and trust that everything will come at the right time is a belief that today is even stronger for me. When I started my trading journey I dove right into the Trading MasterClass Psychology Lessons, from there I started to work on my routine to improve myself. I started to meditate daily, to follow daily routines making sure that I show up daily in my pursuit to become a profitable trader. The discipline to show up and trusting that whatever I need to learn or results I get is part of the process to getting to my goal. From having no clue what forex trading was 23 months ago to the clarity I have gained still excites me on a daily basis.

What advice would you give to an inspired, driven individual about to step into the trading world?
I would just say to go all in. What I mean is to do everything possible to show up daily. For me I would watch the Trading MasterClass lessons daily even when I was tired I would repeat the lessons over & over. I had no trading experience and for me the only way was to show up and gain as much as I could knowing that whatever that was it was what I needed. Today I still watch the lessons and anything produced by TMC. Become consistent with just that, showing up and everything else will start to make much sense as it should. Remember that everything takes time so be patient with yourself, keep forgiving yourself for the mistakes you will make in this journey, and always stick to your plan so you have less emotion to deal with and more clarity to execute it no matter how long it takes.
How has Trading MasterClass assisted your evolution?
From the birth of my career until now TMC has held me by the hand. It all started with the psychology lessons, the first Trading MasterClass Challenge along all of the incredible massive growth that it has had. I only had about 3 months with TMC when I joined the challenge which exposed me to live price action. Then, the first month I quit my job to invest all of my time learning to trade, MasterClass 2.0 had just been released which was a game changer for me. The first month I was home as a full time trader I found myself taking trades that were not in my plan, because I needed to make money, I was scared, I did not have a plan. Then, in January 2020 Trading Blueprint came out. For me it was a sign that everything I need is there for when I need it. True clarity came once I had my trading plan ready and had backtested it, plus all of the TMC content that is produced almost daily. The TMC Community & all of the content being created by every member has been nothing but a blessing to be sharing and following with like minded people.

What is your next immediate trading goal?
My trading goal is to keep showing up daily, improve my routine, follow & solidify my trading plan so I can grow my main account to mid six figures before I make a lifestyle upgrade.
Any final words of wisdom?
Stay a student of the game. Give yourself time to learn and trust that you will gain knowledge as time goes on. Show up no matter what and life will have to give you what you deserve as it has been doing so far. Last but not least, forgive yourself daily & trust that you have all it takes to eventually become a great trader. If I can do this then anyone can, trust when I say that!
