If it's only ever sold to keep balance it aint so bad.
I don't call that balance, I'll use Peter Lynch's term and call it di-worse-ification. Selling a stock purely because it has outperformed is stupidity.
but how many can beat the index year after year after year, decade after decade
That is very easy to do

OK I'll bite, PROVE that you have done it year after year, decade after decade.because if you haven't, you have no claim whatsoever to say "that's easy". If you have done this then I take my hat off to you.
