Nothing moves in smooth and linear line - Life or Markets

Nothing moves in smooth and linear line - Life or Markets. Many are new normals. Datte raho, lage raho. Do not give up. Continue your SIP through Highs and Lows of Markets: 

Reach for Better. Do not Exit at wrong time.

Reach for Better. Do not Exit at wrong time. It can be harmful in your life or in your investment journey. Datte Raho through Highs and Lows and make Volatility your friend. 

Would you have opted for Systematic Investments (SIP) if markets were linear - going one way up or one way down? 

You opted for SIP because markets are volatile. Make the most of it when Markets are down. Accumulate more units during this phase to generate better wealth creation opportunities when Markets take a U turn from this correction phase.

Difference Between Saving Money and Investing Money

INCOME-SPENDING = SAVINGS. But is that enough? Answer is a big NO. 

Savings is not equal to Investing.

Wealth creation is directly proportional to your Savings and Investing habits. More you Save and more you Invest; better the prospect of creating inflation beating wealth.

The Marathon of Life – Market Volatility

From cancelled holidays to work resignations, you deal with a lot of ups and downs in your life! Why not stay resilient in your investments as well?

The Marathon of Life – Risk

“Willingness to take RISK is the path to success” – Biz Stone

Risk and Reward go hand in hand. Take risks according to your capacity and responsibilities in life. Path that may look less risky may turn out to be riskier for reasons unknown to you. Similarly, not investing in one asset class due to your perception of risk, may in the long run give you rewards beyond your imagination. Similarly, the asset class that you may have invested due to your perception of it being less riskier, may in the long run turn out to be the worst investment decision of your life. Biggest Risk in life is not taking any Risk – be it in life or in Investments.

The Marathon of Life – Diversification

“Dream, Diversify and never miss an angle”-Walt Disney
Life of a Triathlete and his diversification into Running, Cycling and Swimming. Some weak elements in one field made up by strengths in the other fields. Diversification of his strengths by this “Iron Man” in different genres helped him reduce risk of failures. 
An apt message for our Investors to diversify across Asset Classes and reduce risk of failures. Outperformance in one asset class helps to cushion underperformance in other asset classes and vice versa. No asset class can consistently perform across all market cycles. Reduce risk of failures through DIVERSIFICATION.

The Marathon of Life – Compounding

An inspiring journey of a Marathoner - her journey from 2 kms to 450 kms and multiplier effect to her efforts during this journey should be shared with our Investors. Let them understand the true meaning of Power of Compounding in the language they will relate to and understand.

The Marathon of Life – Seek Guidance

In life you need a good “Friend, Guide and a Philosopher”. Remember the difference in winning Mahabharat Battle by Pandavas v/s Kauravas was their respective Mentors viz. Krishna v/s Shakuni. Similarly, choose your Financial Advisors wisely and let them guide you on the path of Financial Nirvana.

The Marathon of Life – Step Up

Do not be complacent in life. Set your standards high and push yourself harder. Do not sit on your past laurels. Step up your investments with every increment in your Income standard to achieve your Financial Goals sooner than later. Early Financial Freedom will release you from clutches of TIME.

The Marathon of Life – Its Never Too late

Many start to look after their health only post some medical emergencies. Should they give up looking after their Health or start to look after their Health from that time onwards? Many Investors regret not starting their Investment journey early. Message for them: “it is Never Too Late to Start your Investment journey”. Do not be part of the Rat Race – Race for your Dreams and Aspirations.

The Marathon of Life – Have a Goal

Until you set your standards higher and move out of your comfort zone; you will not achieve the highs of Success. Push yourself that extra mile every day and every moment of your life. Once you reach your Financial Goals; reset your Goals a little higher than the last one. Strive to achieve it. In the end you will not realise the mountain of success you will be sitting on.

The Marathon of Life – Start Early

Olympians are not born but they work hard to be one. They start early in their lives to reach their Goals. Make TIME your FRIEND and not your ENEMY. Make Saving and Investing part of your DNA from an early stage in your lives to achieve many or most of your goals and beyond

The Marathon of Life – Be Resilient

Life journeys and investment journeys are not one linear path and line. There will be many highs and lows; many lonely moments when you will need to introspect and be patient; long winding and curvy roads through which you will need to be mentally and emotionally strong to come out on top. As journey from 1.2 kms to 21 kms Marathon cannot be achieved overnight nor will 10,000 to 20,000 NIFTY journey happen overnight. Be RESILIENT.
