Chances are...

 

=====================================

Chances Are…

Chances are you aren’t going to die from the Coronavirus.

You might.

Someone you love might.

Someone you know might. Which is, of course, why you should be smart. Just wear the damn mask...

But, chances are you’re gonna live.

What’s more, there’s also a good chance you could be living in a very stressful financial situation on the other side of Covid... at least temporarily.

That’s the reality.

So…

Since you’re likely to live and because you may be in financial stress...I’d like to remind you of 1 more thing.

In times of stress it’s important to remember that nearly everything great comes from pressure.

That’s hard to remember if you’re down to your last few bucks.

I’ve been in the trading business for 23 years.

So I’ve been in pretty good shape for awhile..

But before that…

Most of of that time I was generally less than a week away from being pretty much busted financially.

So I know what that’s all about and haven’t ever forgotten it.

Here’s what you need to know:

There are two types of people that are going to come out of the current economic madness.

The first group will look back at this as the time that broke them.

The second group will look back at this time as the time that made them.

You may not think that’s “fair” but that doesn’t mean it’s any less reality.

It may not be the way you think it should be but that doesn’t mean it’s any less reality.

Here’s another bit of reality...you have a choice.

You have a choice in front of you whether you see it that way or not.

The choice you make will determine which of the aforementioned groups you’ll be in.

You have a choice.

So keep this thought at the front of your mind:

How are you going to come out of this?

“Made” or “broken?”
