Weekend Wisdom–Make Your Own Good Luck

CC -- Visual Paradox

Well, my brothers and sisters, if you made it through Friday the 13th, 2012, you can weather any apocalypse or tribulation, if you ask me.

And if you weathered the past few years of investment hell and churn, I think you’re ready to prosper in the upcoming months and years.

(I never say… “it can’t get worse, right?” Because that’s been somewhat of a jinx.)

Here are two secrets to preparing yourself for any investment condition:

1)  Maintain discipline. It’s easy to let emotions carry you away–either to euphoria or to despair. But, over the long term, what this does is make you bail when you should be joining, and make you join when you should bail.

2) The next secret I call my ABE theory: Always Be Educated. Keep learning no matter what. Read. Think. Write.

Here are some posts and articles that might help you on your ABE quest:

    I wasn’t so worried about friday the 13th as I am about the amount of earnings this week. Too many to keep track of almost and then we have the ECB meeting at the end of the month.
