I don't really know how else to read these statements:

"If you can grow your nestegg at 15%/year, you can withdraw 10% per year and also grow your portfolio faster than inflation will devalue it.

The problem is in believing that you can gain at that 15% rate. That is something you will need to prove to yourself."

I don't doubt that he believes he can maintain those returns. Just from reading his other posts throughout the years I get the strong idea that he could get by on much less. That's all I meant.
