Too Much Family Time!Good morning.
Should you ask a taxi driver if you should take an Uber instead?  Or ask a hotel manager if they know any good Airbnb listings?  Only if you want to start trouble.  Likewise, try asking a central banker about Bitcoin.
Part of the recent drop in cryptocurrencies may be thanks to the trouble being kicked up by governments.  China has come out against Bitcoin several times in the past few weeks, and dozens of times since 2013.  Reports overstating the energy requirements of cryptocurrencies have been coming out as well.  And in the United States, talk of how to better record cryptocurrencies for tax purposes has come into play.
These fears have arisen before, and will likely pass.  Why?  For the same reason taxi companies weren’t able to stop Uber.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

the KEY to change

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
—Leo Tolstoy

Everything begins with a belief.  As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Life consists of what a man is thinking about all day.”
Along those lines, what we think determines who we are.  And who we are determines what we do.
Our thoughts determine our destiny, and our destiny determines our legacy.  As British philosopher James Allen, author of As a Man Thinketh, said, “You are today where your thoughts have brought you.  You will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.”
People who go to the top think differently than others.  Said differently, small thinking is self-limiting.  It holds you back from achieving great things.  On the other hand, nothing expands possibilities like unleashed thinking.
The good news: We can change the way we think.  Believe it or not, the #1 challenge to making personal changes is your feelings.  And you can control your feelings by controlling your thoughts.  In other words, you can control your thoughts, and your feelings come from your thoughts.  Unfortunate,  because few people control their thinking, they fail to control their lives.

How can you change your thoughts?
    • Think big picture.  This allows you to see beyond yourself.
    • Think focused.  This allows you to remove distractions.
    • Think creatively.  This allows you to get out of your box of limitations.
    • Think realistically.  This allows you to have a foundation for change.
    • Think strategically.  This allows you to have a plan for change.
    • Think possibilities.  This allows you to look for and receive the best.
    • Think reflectively.  This allows you to gain a true perspective of yourself.

If you followed along there, you see that everything is traced back to our thoughts.

Long story short, what we think informs what we believe, for belief is a byproduct of what we’ve thought about long enough and decided to buy into.  Our beliefs inform our expectations, which impact our attitude.  Attitude to behavior, behavior to performance, and changing your performance changes your life.

This is my plan: Educate myself properly and don’t give my money away to someone else!

With network marketing, you control the outcome you get from your investments of time and money if you treat it like a 3.5-million-dollar investment of course.  However, you cannot control interest rates or what the stock market will do.

I’m not against traditional investment plans.  I’m all about leverage.  Imagine you had both a traditional investment plan and a network marketing plan working in your favor simultaneously?

Holy smacks!  That right there is the best investment plan of your life.

Good morning. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
