Covid cases hit a record high yesterday. While President Trump continues to assert that the case numbers are up because testing is up, stocks are forward looking.
Looking at the Biden transition team, a push is already being made for a 4-6 week lockdown until a vaccine can be widely distributed. If so, the stock market could be in for another meltdown in early 2021, even with the Federal Reserve pumping like crazy. It’s easy to see why stocks have now mostly given back the gains from the Pfizer vaccine news.
Now here’s the rest of the news:
During times of tribulation, my Greek grandmother usually invoked this village wisdom: “The dogs may bark, but the caravan moves on.” If my Yia Yia were alive today, she’d probably apply those words to the current political situation in America.
Spooked by all the post-election barking? Just move on. Regardless of your political affiliation, you can take this statement to the bank: Joseph R. Biden will be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on January 20, 2021. That date is set by the 20th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, meaning it’s enshrined in law.
Typically in the past, the loser of the presidential race would give a gracious concession speech and accept the results. But the law does not require a concession; that’s merely social custom. Biden has clinched insurmountable leads in the Electoral College and popular vote. Efforts to overturn the results based on charges of “fraud” are doomed to fail. [Move On!]

Craft Your Magic!
When creating you magic; errr … sales message, make the prospect feel that who (s)he currently is — or what (s)he currently has — is not good enough. It is now your duty to let him/her feel the agony of staying at his/her current status. Make him/her visualize the undesirable outcome for not making any change in his/her life. Here’s Darren Hardy to share more wisdom…
If you can craft your message in a way that it appeals with one or more of the triggers below, you are more likely to get better results.
- Desire for pleasure
- Fear of pain
- Having/saving more money
- Prevention of loss of money
- Attainment of excellent health and long life
- Enhancement of relationships
- The need for love, respect, security, recognition, and trust
Probably the biggest motivators are pleasure and pain.
Sex, drugs & rock-‘n’-roll. 😉
