  • We cannot control the social and economic impact of the virus, but we do have total control over how we react to these changes. Your focus should be on your reaction to thrive.
  • Appreciate the restrictions that have come with this virus because they are causing hidden positive changes.
  • This global pandemic has created a common cause that has brought people together locally and globally.
  • This is an opportunity for us to do the things that we’ve wanted to do, but we always put aside for various reasons.
  • If you’re feeling depressed, and you can’t seem to shake it, it may be time to seek professional help, or your spiritual leader or a good friend to express how you’re feeling. Sometimes just talking about it can put things into perspective.
  • It is also important to relax. Take a break once in a while to relax your mind and body.
  • Take care, and stay well as we go through this unique time in our lives.

  • Use this period as a learning curve. Keep an accurate record of your decisions and a good trading journal. This will help you to make informed trading decisions in the future.
  • Whatever platform you use, make sure you keep notes of what you did and at what point so that you have a beautiful historical record of your actions once this is all over and we’re through this challenging bear market period.
  • You will learn way more in this bear market phase than in a bull market phase. So keep your eyes open.

  • This is not the time to try and control the situation. With so much chaos going on, sit back and take it all in. Don’t pressure yourself to control an outcome or have an action plan.
  • Take the time to internalize; give yourself time and space to think. It’s not always easy, but it helps.
  • Talk to people that you respect that you trust and are part of your inner circle, and then put together a loose action plan and be fluid. Be willing to go to wherever this opportunity takes you.
