Today in the afternoon, when I was chatting with some of our subscribers, most of them were showing frustration due to this bear market and losses they incur during market fall. After long discussion they realized that bear market is in fact good for us, because all great success stories originate from failure. If you look from different point of view, now we are actually sowing the seed for next bull market now.
Look around the world, any country from Japan to Vietnam, how stronger they came out after the world war when there were massive casualties. Remember, the more we fall, the higher we are going to rise. When? Is the biggest question here? But why are you worrying about when? After all you are going to get cheap stocks available for longer period of time which will give you great opportunity to accumulate huge amount of 10in3 stocks. So, just look at the positive side because you can't live a happy life looking at the negative or being pessimistic :-)
A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully and before it blossomed, he examined it. He saw the bud that would soon blossom, but noticed thorns upon the stem and he thought, "How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns? Saddened by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and just before it was ready to bloom... it died.
So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose. The God-like qualities planted in us at birth, grow amid the thorns of our faults. Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the defects.
We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us. We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it dies. We never realize our potential.
Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else must show it to them. One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns of another, and find the rose within them.
This is one of the characteristic of love... to look at a person, know their true faults and accepting that person into your life... all the while recognizing the nobility in their soul. Help others to realize they can overcome their faults. If we show them the "rose" within themselves, they will conquer their thorns. Only then will they blossom many times over.
