Read When You’re In Doubt!

Market drawdowns are not easy to stomach.  Even for the most experienced investors.

I was reminded today of a poem by Rudyard Kipling that is so simple, yet powerful, during moments like these.  It’s called “If”:

“If you can keep your head when all about you is losing theirs…If you can wait and not be tired of waiting…If you can think and not make thoughts your aim…If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you…Yours is the earth and everything that is in it.”

This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite poems…and one you should remember during times like these.

Hell No…Stocks Will Grow!

“Should I stay in the stock market?”

I want to take this time to check in, because I’ve been seeing and hearing this question a lot lately…

The last two months have been very, very difficult to say the least.  My account was down as much as 35% at one point.  That did not feel good.

However, I’m more concerned about you.  If you are brand new to investing, you may be shell shocked.

Listen…like I’ve said in the past, and explained in my intro guide, this is all part of investing.  The only run that matters is the long run.  Remember that.

The answer to “Should I sell my stock?” or “Should I get out of the stock market?” is: “HELL NO!  STOCKS WILL GROW!!”

It’s important to know that the downward pressure is not over.  At least I don’t believe it is.  Be that as it may, though, that’s OK.  Because we’re ready!!!
