Keep Calm and Carry On

Keep Calm and Carry On is a catchphrase that originally appeared on a World War II-era British public safety poster. After one of the original posters was recovered and placed in a British bookkeep-calmshop in 2000, the inspirational message was shared online, sparking a series of images centered around the template “Keep Calm and X.”

The “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster was commissioned in 1939 by the temporary Ministry of Information in England, following the printing of two other inspirational posters stating “Freedom Is In Peril. Defend It With All Your Might” and “Your Courage, Your Cheerfulness, Your Resolution Will Bring Us Victory.” It was intended to be used to strengthen morale in the event of a large-scale attack or occupation, which many considered inevitable at the time.

With all of the turmoil during the last few months regarding the political scene, this phrase seems quite relevant today.  Many feel exhausted and dismayed by the never-ending media frenzy and negative nature of the campaign season.  It is no wonder that this phrase is relevant today.  We certainly need to have the morale of the nation strengthened.

This phrase can also be applied when discussing  financial planning  and the media craziness pertaining to your financial success.  When establishing a plan, it is paramount to keep focus on the long-term and disregard the current drumbeat of the media regarding the markets.  Keep Calm and Carry On can be applied to your behavior and trusting in the plan to remain calm,carry on with your long-term plans, and meet your goals.
