An experience investor does not see a market crash as "sh*t hitting the fan", it's all part of the ride and should be expected.

Thank you.

She says everyone tends to believe the positive information more than the negative. This is false. People don't say I tend to see the negative for nothing. When people give my positive or negative info to choose from, I tend to think it's far worse than they say.

5:47 this is why people believe they're going to win the lottery, but don't think lightning will strike them. Even though the likelihood of lightning striking them is 7 times more likely to happen than winning the lottery

I still have trouble quitting cigarettes even though I tell myself all the positive things if I quit. Things like substance use is lot more complicated when you’re completely addicted. Therapy or medication is required

Marc talked about the process of learning a foreign language and the different levels of fluency. He will show that there is a higher realm of language proficiency and explain what it takes to reach this “native” point where the benefits far surpass mere communication skills. Marc’s passion is the study of languages, their manifestation in local dialects, as well as their expression in poetry and folkloric song. He has acquired a near-native proficiency in six languages and their sub-forms and has given various musical performances.
