Stock Market Takes a Breather After Big Drop

stock

Investors were pausing to catch their breath last Thursday after the stock market experienced its worst drop of the year thanks to mixed signals about prospects for the economy.

Consumer spending is still strong, which is a good thing. Retail sales are up. But industrial production fell. And some not-so-promising news about manufacturing in China brought about a sharp selloff on  Wall Street this week, triggering the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 to fall three percent.

Here’s more on the scare:

Here, they give news updates on recent events that involve or affect the martial arts. Kung Fu Tea reviews media stories that mention or affect the traditional fighting arts.  They also discuss important events and talk about how Asian hand combat systems are portrayed in the mainstream media.

Drive, Determination, and Passion

These are the three keys to success in business and in life — at least according to LinkedIn. I’m always searching for ways to succeed more and I read a lot of articles on the subject. I believe drive is a major motivating factor in achieving success.

I also believe, like this article does, that drive is an inner quality that many people lack. It makes people refuse to accept the status quo, refuse to be mediocre. Drive is a quality few have but many crave. I like to think I have drive, but who knows? Do you have an inherent drive to do well in business, perhaps become an entrepreneur? Share your story with me.
