I’m going to clue you in on something that can change your pathetic lives forever.
The voices in your head are probably wrong. The ideas you have are, more or less, the sum total of the nonsense you’ve been ingesting for information. Ergo, you’re most likely absorbing nonsense, especially if you’re unhappy. Since most people these days are malcontents, odds are you’re a bearshitting fool reading Zerohedge and negative fuckers all day on Twitter.
I am guilty as charged for being lured into the rhetoric, but I like to stir the pot and often ham it up for the sake of dramatic candor.
I’m in touch with reality enough to know the voices in my head and merely reflections of my insecurities, wishes and desires, not even remotely close to reality. What is real is what you can see and touch.
Is there a bear market out there now?
Was there one in late December?
I suppose you could’ve just bought and bought and bought, mindlessly drolling on throughout life without a care in the world — but what fun is that? We like to at least believe there is a modicum of control or variability in all this, no? Perhaps we can apply our artistic design into the investing process and come out the other end splendidly rich? It’s an awfully nice thought and it makes me feel good just writing it. But it’s probably a waste of time.
My quantitative methods, up 4% MTD, are way more efficient and conducive with building wealth, truly, than playing whack-a-mole with the market.
Markets go up 76% of the time, based on a 125 year history. The odds of your 20-30 year investment horizon going wrong are infinitesimal. Remember that the next time you find yourself thinking end of days is upon you. That’s hubris and golden aged thinking perverting itself into a form of cognitive dissonance that is secretly and quietly trying to kill you.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
