Negativity...its right for about a minute...

Well, well, well, if it isn't Mr. or Ms. Negative Nancy! Let me tell you something my friend, being negative really doesn't pay off. Sure, you might get a temporary sense of satisfaction by pointing out all the flaws or shortcomings in a situation, in a candidate, in a person or position or a situation but in the long run, negativity is a losing game. Does being negative get you what you want? Think about it, have you ever encountered someone who's always spouting off negative comments and attitudes? Are they someone you want to be around? Are they happy? Are you happy around them? Probably not.

Let's bring it back to the world of finance for a moment - being negative about the stock market or certain investments may seem like a smart choice, but in reality, it's holding you back from potential gains. Instead of focusing on the negative aspects and potential risks, focus on the positives and opportunities. Of course, it's important to be realistic and to weigh the pros and cons, but don't let negativity cloud your judgment and get in the way of your investment success.

Let's put it in real terms. In December 2022 it seemed like every pundit was negative. Morgan Stanley's Chief Strategist suggested the market was about to fall to historic lows...those talking heads on CNBC said things looked bad. Some were 'shorting' Telsla, Amazon and Netflix. They were on TV telling you how bad things were. Well listening to them, to their negativity may have made you miss one of the best first half market moves in years. Listening to them, if one did not have a plan, if one followed them would have been, frankly, disastrous.

So, let's make a pact - no more negativity! Whether it's in our personal or financial lives, let's focus on the positive and be optimistic about our future. After all, positivity breeds success.
