Full of Hot Air?

magine there are 100 miles between you and a goal. A place you want to get to.

But the land in between is chock full of canyons, crevasses, and crumbling cliffs.

You have two choices of how you could get there.

You could find a way on foot, sliding into ravines and trudging up switchbacks.

Up every cliff and down. Mile after mile.


You could float above it in a hot air balloon. Letting the wind carry you across.

Which way would you choose to travel?

So often, we feel at the mercy of markets and the economy, picking a treacherous path through a chaotic landscape.

The news cycle, with its constant updates and urgent headlines, can make it feel like we’re always heading toward a cliff edge.


When we’re stuck down in the canyons, looking up at sheer rock faces without a cairn in sight, it’s hard to know which way to go.

But, imagine if you could rise above it.

Instead of traversing rubble fields and climbing boulders, you’re flying above it.

Your perspective shifts.

Deep canyons with fast-moving rapids become majestic vistas.

The rugged terrain that’s a struggle to navigate when you’re in it is laid out before you.

Here’s the thing:

The terrain hasn’t changed. Every wrinkle and obstacle is still there.

But, by shifting your perspective and taking flight, you have a wider, broader view of the landscape. You’re not constrained by the walls below.

Markets and the economy are the same way.

We can feel at the mercy of every rally and correction. Or, we can choose to float above it all.

We have to cross the same challenging terrain… but we can choose how we travel.

It’s not easy to get out of the canyons when you’re feeling stuck. But the rewards of that broader perspective are massive.

Feeling stuck with all the uncertainty and negative headlines?

Comment below and let me know. I’ll make some time to help you find a different perspective.
