Monday Morning Match - Who Are You Listening To Anyway?

The Weatherman, The Stock Market Update and Headline News???

Is anyone else out there tired of the doom and gloom in the news? And if it's not negative, it's a false positive, such as when the headlines scream "Home Sales Rise in Second Quarter." Encouraged, you delve into the article only to find out the main thrust of the article is about growing foreclosures, dropping home prices and growing inventories.

Each morning you have a choice on how your day will be. Each night when you lay down to sleep, you make a conscious choice on whether today was a success or not. Between waking up and laying down, you choose who you will surround yourself with so make good decisions. Don't allow the "Negative Neds" and "Pitty Party Pattys" to determine your day.

What do you hear when you listen to the weather forecast? Do you hear the "partly sunny" part or the "chance of showers" part? you just say, regardless of the weather, it's a great day for a picnic?
Here's a market report that seems to be right on point.
