As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday and the Christmas holiday, we must realize there is much to be thankful for.
The Men and Women Who Sacrifice and Fight for Us.
Friends and Family.
Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler.
More importantly, we continue to live in the greatest country in the world despite how you feel about the political climate.
This is yet another year of great division in our country. However, there is no political party that can change the fact that the free markets work and we will overcome. People will continue to believe that hard work, discipline and prudent risk taking will lead to success.
I continue to believe that the majority of Americans believe in the American dream. As I have said before the only thing that doesn’t change is that things change. The path to the American dream may change but it is still there.
Remember, during times like these there are increasing amounts of opportunity for all who are willing to look.
We continue to live in a free country one in which YOU determine how much success you desire. You are accountable for the level of success you will realize.
Regardless of the political climate the free markets and free enterprise will overcome.
Be thankful for this freedom, there are many in the world who are envious of the United States of America.
As always, do not empower the Wall Street bullies, to succeed in reaching your long term financial goals you should:
Own equities….globally diversify…..rebalance
Remember returns come from the markets not from a manager.
Be thankful for all you have.
