Smile or Die
One of the things I’m vulnerable to is over-compensating for what I would describe as an inherent lack of confidence. The condition was developed innocently enough through life experiences and the culture I was brought up in. The remedy was to change the way I think, and for the most part, thinking positively has saved my life making me more useful and productive than I ever could have imagined. On the other hand, I’m paid to be alert to the reality so I have to be careful about becoming a blissful “cheerleader”. Positive is good and so is thinking and using judgement especially where it concerns investment. I trust we can all find this to be a useful reminder.
