Did you know that the average person is bombarded with up to 10,000 advertisements and media messages EVERY SINGLE DAY?
I read recently that we’re exposed to more messaging and information in just one day than the average person 100 years ago was in their entire life. And as we’re inundated with more and more information, actual truth becomes fuzzier, and wisdom becomes downright rare.
Many of us probably fall victim to becoming overwhelmed with it all from time to time.
Consider the following:
“…Dow falls for the third day as Treasury yields continue climbing.”
“…Solid retail sales give economy a boost leading into 2024.”
“…Buying home and auto insurance is becoming impossible.”
“…Homebuilder sentiment surges amid sharp drop in mortgage rates.”
“…Boomers won’t part with their homes, and that’s a problem for young families.”
“…. Wallstreet salivates as it sees $8.8 trillion dollars parked in Money Market funds.”
These were all posts on the same day!
So, which one is it?
With conflicting – and typically over-sensationalized – messages from the media, it’s no wonder why consumers are confused. (Or just tune out altogether)
The reality is this: markets move, and so does the world.
Things are never as good or as bad as one may think.
Keep all of that in mind this year and do what is best for you in all aspects of your life: investing, your family, your business, and even your personal goals.
Follow your plan. Stay on track. Keep your feet on the ground while always adjusting your sails.
If you do, you will always be right.
