Bad News Bear
I Don't Mean To Be The Bearer Of Bad News
In investing, and in life, it generally helps to be optimistic.
Shorting the market with your entire net worth, and/or being a "Chicken Little" in every aspect of life is not fun, at least for us.
That said, not everything is sunshine and rainbows. Shit does happens, and you have to be at least aware of how things might go wrong. Don't just shoot the messenger.
If someone mentions something that's against your thesis, it doesn't hurt to give some thought to it, instead of just brushing it away completely.
"Keep your eyes on the stars, but your feet on the ground".
As always, "Come for the laughs, stay for the fun times".
