The key word is eventually! It is always the case that we, eventually, will all become successful. It is just that maybe, before our “eventuality” arrives, we might not be around but we can sure that history will record our victories.
If we have ever spent time listening to economists and financial analysts, we have heard them talk about the “short-run” and the “long-run.” These two time frames make all the difference in life. If you have patience to wait and don’t be carried away by the current activities in the market; if you are willing and able to stay the course, I believe that in the long-run, your portfolio value will be exactly where you expected to be. But again, you have to be willing to experience the turbulence and the cyclicality of the market and eventually, again I say, eventually, you will get ahead.
Eventually, we all do win our battles but we have to be patient and wait for that eventuality.
