    Read this quote the other day.

    What do you think?

    I interpret this as having a positive attitude, optimistic attitude/mindset




    Thoughts??

    If you are bullish you are more likely to take action and buy something/invest leading to a "win".

    A bear is probably just going to sit on the sidelines and complain. Obviously there are exceptions and strategies to have "wins" from picking bear markets.

    It is self fulfilling more than anything imo.

    A bullish outlook enables you to trust instead of caution and that outlook enables you to take action more often than not.

    However you don't need a bullish outlook in order to take action - money can be made regardless of market conditions. You just need trust and a lack of fear.

    When I say trust - I mean only in yourself as nothing can be controlled outside of yourself.

    Bullish v optimistic ??

    A bullish person wont backoff in a downturn. A optimistic person may look elsewhere for opportunity or time their next venture.

    Agreed.
    Was speaking to some colleagues the other day, as you'd expect in Sydney the conversation always includes the property market.
    Someone will always say "I'll never be able to afford a place. Forget it."

    With that defeatist attitude you'll never succeed.

    I'm definitely in the party of "Sure, of course I can. What will I need to do to get there? What am I willing to give up for it (if I think it's worthwhile)?"

    People with goals succeed because they know where they are going. It's as simple as that.
