I have been carrying out a research and bumped into this article written by Nick Johnson, I found it very valuable and thought to share it with you.
What is the greatest secret in all of investing?
What really separates amateurs from professionals?
Losers from winners?
If you search the internet, you’ll find dozens of people with dozens
of answers to this question.
Some will say the secret is their proprietary trading system.
Some will say it’s their method of picking stocks.
I’m sure some of those ideas are useful.
But they’re not nearly as useful as something I call
“the most powerful wealth-building secret in investing.”
Master this skill and you’ll consistently spot opportunities to
make five or 10 times your money on safe investments.
I know that’s counter to the conventional investment wisdom
that says you have to take big risks to make big returns.
Well, after learning this secret, you’ll know that you most certainly do
not have to take big risks to make big returns.
You’ll know most people have it backwards.
You simply have to know how to apply this one skill.
It’s a skill that helped make Warren Buffett one of the richest men in the world.
A skill that helped make Casey Research founder Doug Casey millions of
dollars in the stock market.
And a skill that made Sir John Templeton a rich man and one of the
most respected investors of all time.
I’ll tell you what this skill is in a moment.
First, I want to show you three real examples of how it has made investors rich.
At the time, millions of Americans were in poverty due to the Great Depression.
And Nazi Germany had just invaded Poland to kick off World War II.
There was an incredible amount of fear in the world.
But Templeton, a recent college grad, invested $10,000 in U.S. stocks.
That’s the equivalent of $167,000 today.
Amazingly, Templeton didn’t even study which companies to buy.
He didn’t need to.
He knew that the extreme fear in the world had pushed U.S. stocks
So, he simply bought any stock selling for less than $1 on the
Four years later, Templeton sold his portfolio for a 300% gain.
Today, he’s known as the greatest stock picker of the last century.
It was the biggest bankruptcy in U.S. history. U.S. stocks crashed more than 50%…
the biggest crash since the Great Depression.
And the stock prices of many great businesses dropped 80% or more.
People were terrified of losing everything: their jobs, their houses, their life savings.
There was an incredible amount of fear in the markets.
But the fear was masking an incredible opportunity…
It was the best time to buy quality stocks in 30 years.
Investors who purchased quality stocks in late 2008 made a killing.
For example, an investor who bought stock in coffee chain Starbucks in
An investor who bought technology company Apple made as much as 966%.
Ford Motor Company’s stock gained more than 1,200% in just
The list goes on.
Many quality companies gained at least 10x in less than two years from
The blast instantly killed 11 workers and eventually spilled 4 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
It was the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history… and the biggest oil spill in world history.
The negative media coverage was nonstop.
As partial owner of the oil rig,
British oil giant BP became one of the most hated companies in the world.
In a matter of weeks, BP’s stock price collapsed from $59 to $27…
for a stunning loss of value of $105 billion.
At that point, hardly anyone would touch BP stock… but smart investors asked,
It turned out investors were overreacting.
Buying BP stock near its bottom made for an 80% gain in just a year.
It also locked in a safe 6% (and growing) dividend yield.
They show the power of buying assets during times of maximum pessimism…
when no one else wants to buy.
You see, from time to time, an extraordinary opportunity comes along
If you can spot these opportunities, you can make gigantic returns
After all, the gains we just discussed didn’t come from investing in
Many of them came from just the opposite: iconic, blue-chip U.S.
According to Wall Street, you must take big risks to earn big returns.
But these stories show that’s not true.
Buying valuable assets for pennies on the dollar is one of
Warren Buffett, Jim Rogers, and generations of Rothschilds
Amateur investors run from crisis.
Great investors run toward it.

Thanks to you Charles, we can be there when the worst happens to give people the emergency medical care they need – and rapid transport to hospital. Your support means that CareFlight can fly at a few minutes’ notice, to some of the most inhospitable places in this country. It means patients like Simon can be reached quickly with hospital-level emergency care at the scene – and in cases like Simon’s every minute counts.
On behalf of everyone at CareFlight, thank you for your generosity – and have a wonderful holiday season. Thank you so much
Dear CVK, Awesome, a huge thank you for your prompt response!!! I feel blessed to know you.I love your inspiring video and I have learnt a lot from your nicely arranged presentation.I can’t remember the question I paused to you myself but it feels like whatever it was I asked you has been effectively dealt with in your powerful video. By the way, I strongly feel you can make a good mentor of mine considering the massive education and experience you have acquired through the years. Let me know if you can do this for me because I firmly believe there is a purpose why God brings certain people into our lives which is to help us achieve our fullest potential and arrive at our God-given destiny. Remain blessed forevermore in Jesus mighty name, Amena!!! By the way, many thanks for your quick encouraging feedback and for the free book offer on how to attract people to my biz.
Will study the book ASAP and I should be able to implement what I will learn and will see where that will take me. I am looking forward to a rewarding interaction between the two of us. Once again, thank you for your non-wavering support and encouragement you have rendered to me over the years. I thought you had given up on me and forgotten about me since I appeared to be wasting your time. I am still interested in salvaging my life and do something new and big because I am tired and sick of living a mediocre kind of life. Please help me if you can by God’s grace. Have a blessed day my Brotherman
Charles, right now, a lot of people in this country are saying, “Thank you.”Thank you for being there when they needed help most. Thank you for taking charge when their world was turning upside down. Thank you for giving them confidence, when they were afraid and needed life-saving help. As a CareFlight Support Crew Member, you are making such a difference for so many people. Your regular donations help save lives and keep families together. Patients like Thomas, who told us, “You made it possible for me to survive.”And Agnes, who said, “I’m very grateful a service like CareFlight exists.”Below are some more messages of thanks: Thanks from the patients you help. As we head into another year, we know there will be even more people who will call on our services. So, I’d like to add my heartfelt thanks to those of our patients, for your steadfast support. Together we are ensuring CareFlight is always there for people when they call for our help. Whether it’s intubating a patient at the scene of an accident, or ensuring a newborn is safe on a flight from a remote area to a major hospital for treatment, our patients cannot speak highly enough of the care they receive. Charles, that care is part of a chain that starts with people like you. These expressions of gratitude, from all over the country and from all walks of life, show you how much your support is valued – and how much it is needed, more than ever. We can’t do what we do without you.
If this year has taught us anything so far, it’s that none of us ever truly know what is around the corner.
That’s why I can’t thank you enough for your support that ensures we can continue to provide life-saving aeromedical care to Australians most in need.
Our CareFlight crews are in a unique position to understand what Australians have been going through. Every day, we care for people who have found their world shaken by a sudden accident or illness – coping with circumstances almost none expected to face when they woke up that morning.
People like Simon Bowman don’t like to rely on others for help. But one day, as he lay trapped inside his car after a terrible road accident, with suspected injuries to his spine and shoulder and a possible head trauma, Simon needed life-saving help desperately. CareFlight was there in a matter of minutes.
CareFlight’s rapid response helicopter service is so vital in situations like this. Our crew can be airborne in minutes and by the side of our patient, delivering hospital-level emergency care as fast as possible.
Simon doesn’t remember much about his accident, but he does recall the voices of the CareFlight crew as they worked urgently to treat his injuries. Simon told us: “I knew there was someone looking after me and that I was in good hands.”
Our mission is to deliver people the very best care. We’ve spearheaded international aeromedical innovations such as our stretcher bridge system and become the first civilian service to carry blood plasma to the scene of an accident.
The care, the state-of-the-art equipment, those voices which reassure patients that they are in the hands of skilled professionals they can trust – it’s all thanks to people like you.
Simon has recovered and recently visited our base to meet some of the crew. He has never forgotten the help he received from CareFlight, so meeting them again was an emotional experience.
Seeing the helicopter that transported him to hospital, he was amazed at its size. He confessed he’d never been that keen on helicopters, “but I was very keen that one was there that day.”
Your support for CareFlight is helping to save so many lives, like Simon’s.
Thank you so much.
