My Investment Mantra:

Downturns are normal. Upturns follow downturns. Upturns last significantly longer.

This chart represents my felt tip marker exercise.  First, with a red tip marker, circle the downturns.  Next, with a green tip marker, circle the upturns.  You can see that upturns significantly outpace downturns.
