STAY POSITIVE 2009

HERE ARE 10 FACTS TO HELP YOU STAY POSTIVE FOR 2009:

1.Stock markets have crashed and recovered a dozen times... they always recovered... yet when in the collapse, there seemed no end in sight. This one will recover too. Good

2.There will be great demand for real estate. Already in the US we have a huge increase in distressed sales. Once they are gone, the market will continue to rise. Opportunity will make some rich. Good

3.Oil and gas prices are down, putting about $7 billion in Canadian pockets next year. Good

4.There will be a dozen deals of a lifetime. I.e. a 3-year-old $60,000 (lease return) American SUV will go for under $20,000. Good

5.Food costs will be cheaper. Good

6.The bad companies, the bad products, the overbuilt real estate condo areas will all continue to be cleared out or crash and burn. Good, they should

7.As investors we will not so readily trust someone else to manage our money. We will do some learning and not get scammed as easily. Good

8.Lousy securities and fad products will not be tolerated or trusted and will die. AAA ratings will be checked. Good

9.More stock investors will come to real estate. Good

10.30- year money in the US and 5-year money in Canada will be around 4.5% spring. Good

You make your own list. Try this: Whenever someone talks about how bad the economy is, ask him or her how she is doing. 80% of the time, people tell me, that themselves are actually doing quite well... but they hear someone is not or may not be in the future. Be a contrarian: Love your life, love your family,love your community, love your country... and in the process become more of a human being than a human doing. Yes, 2009 will be fine Ozzie Jurrock
