Take a bearish view, expect the worst and most likely you will be surprised on the upside. Alternatively, you expect nothing and everything you receive will surprise. I have always expressed bearish sentiments, but internally I hold out for a bull outcome and hence, ALWAYS feel disappointed, angry and upset. I have reached the point where I can no longer deal with extensive disappointment, so I have decided to change the game plan and be internally bearish.
You have surprised on the upside, and I smile thinking about it. 🙂 I don’t know for how much longer the surprise will last, but I endeavour to revel in knowing that current data is better than previous data, instead of worrying about when things are going to take a dip.
