The Nasdaq and S&P 500 have hit new record highs this week. But it doesn’t feel like a bull market. Why? That’s because the market is undergoing a rotation. Tech stocks started underperforming at the start of the year, as other sectors took the lead. Some tech names are heading higher now, but there’s no clear sign that tech is taking the lead.
This rotation is a healthy sign that when the feeling of a sideways market is over, the market will trend higher. That’s the good news. The bad news? Periodic sell-offs might be just enough to scare out investors of stocks that have the potential to move a lot higher. Traders may not want to get overly leveraged here, if stocks are only going to move gradually higher, and some trades on the short side can do well here. But when markets are in a sideways pattern, the key trap to avoid is boredom.
Now here’s the rest of the news:

The market sees volatility come back with a 2.5% drop in the S&P 500. While that’s not exactly a world-beater, it is an indication that the accumulation of negative data may be starting to weigh on the Bulls. While bulls can be strong, there’s only so much weight they can carry before the bears can take them down.

Is Work-Life Balance a Myth?
…Disorganized? Burnt out? Behind? Rushed?
Lookin’ for work life balance tips¹ … It’s safe to say that you love your BUSINESS and your FAMILY.
If you often wrestle with the concept of “work-life balance,” then allow us the opportunity to burst the bubble: It’s a cultural myth. It’s overrated. It’s a fundamentally flawed, unachievable concept. The notion of work-life balance suggests that we should have this perfect balance between our personal and professional responsibilities at any given time.
This couldn’t be further from the truth for the over-whelming majority of folks, and here’s the even more critical part: Life is seasonal. In other words, there may be seasons when the scales tip in favor of our professional responsibilities and aspirations, and there may be seasons when our personal lives take priority.
It’s not all or nothing; it’s just not necessarily 50-50. And what works for one person, may not work for you. And what works for you today, may not work for you down the road. And the seasons of life can also extend to your spirituality, relationships, health, ﬁtness and other aspects of life.
Now, that’s not to say that you should ever neglect these key areas. After all, it’s not about how much time. It’s about being intentional with your time. As Hillary DePiano said, “We all get the same 365 days. The only difference is what we do with them.”
And we all get the same 24 hours. Are you living intentionally with yours? Are you present when you’re with your family? Are you zeroed in on the opportunity at hand? Or, are you distracted by everything else you could be doing?
As Paul wrote in the book of Colossians, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart.” Said differently, wherever you are, be there. Or, as Mark Batterson put it in his book Play the Man, “Do it like your life depends on it.” Whether it’s physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or relationally, leave it all on the court.
Intentional living, according to John Maxwell, is key to “choosing a life that matters,” and like many of you have experienced, fatherhood reﬁnes, humbles, and promotes growth — for everyone. Quit aiming for someone else’s idea of balance, and focus your target on living intentionally.

Before you close this post and go on with your day or night… there’s something I’d like you to take a moment to think about.
Success is like an iceberg.
Most of us only see the 10% that’s visible above the surface: the nice house, the expensive clothes, the fancy car.
But most of us never see the 90% that’s under the surface. All the hard work, good fortune, and mindset that go into keeping that success afloat.
So we focus on trying to achieve the part we can see. And we wonder why we never quite manage to create the life that we want.
Can you relate?
This training is designed to help you understand what’s going on under the surface.
It’s going to help you discover the root cause that determines whether you struggle in life… or you succeed.
If you’ve ever found yourself wondering why you haven’t got the results you have always hoped for… then T. Harv Eker International has the home-study course for you… entitled, Secrets Of Inner Power.
This is my P.S. reminder to review Harv’s previous material before committing to anything further!
