That's when they finally have the "aha" that the opportunities of investing live on the other side of their fears and doubts, that the best financial rewards more than likely will be found outside their comfort zones. That's when they finally understand that fears and doubts undermine their confidence and their actions and ultimately can drive a powerful wedge between them and their dreams.

"Rest assured," they told us. "Everyone who intends to become financially wealthy will deal with them sooner or later." It suddenly became obvious to me that these doubts don't go away on their own; left unexamined or not dealt with, they can keep you from becoming a great investor.

We came to understand that these are the "MythUnderstandings" (part myth and part misunderstanding) that people have about investing. And after some consideration, two distinct categories of MythUnderstandings emerged from the research:

1. Your MythUnderstandings about the way you look at yourself as an investor

2. Your MythUnderstandings about the way you look at investing

This surprised us. We thought the MythUnderstandings would be about money and investing, but the more we thought about it, the more it made
