A Blessing Or A Curse

Perspective is important in speculation.

"My reflection blocks the view through the window." - Allan Wallace


What you view as a blessing may be a curse. View things through others eyes, particularly opponent's eyes.

"In religion and politics people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination." - Mark Twain


I would add to his stated religion and politics - investment strategy and their attitude toward life.

Maybe it is easier to say "... people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination." - Mark Twain

Perhaps Socrates was a bit harsh when he said : "An unexamined life is not worth living." We however can defiantly say - an examined life has more value.

To the person themselves, and to all of society.

If we are to have an examined life, speculation is a part of the process.

In fact speculation is derived from roots that denote looking closely, from several angles. Financial speculation also connotes making a decision without seeing complete information.

In the markets by the time there is full knowledge, it is usually too late to act.

Here is your new perspective of the day, brought to you from the inspirational quote a day folks.

"
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds." - Edward Abbey


That defines life.

You can hide - or you attack life and get the most out of it.

You don't have enough advantages in your life to attack?

Look up the life of the gal that wrote this next comment. If you have less than she did, maybe you too can do something worth a quote.

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure". - Helen Keller


If you want that most amazing view - squeeze everything you can from life.

Turn that curse into a blessing.
