From the couple of months I was worrying to change the look of my blog. I was planning to give awesome experience to all visitors of my blog. Thanks to my new vendor for his wonderful job but my job of writing awesome articles has been stopped for couple of month between this shifting. Well today I’m feeling relaxed and want to start my job again with one short article which will guide you and give you some awesome experience.
From where to start ???
The answer of this small question might be challenging for new investors with worrying and thinking for their future, same problem I’m facing today to write this article. Ha ha ha ha…..
There’s no secret formula for where to start your investment journey but some basic steps will help you to start and will guide you to create wealth in future.
Bill Gates once said, “Television is not real life. In real life, people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.” The majority of people fail to achieve their financial goals because they waste their time and energy chasing rainbows, seeking shortcuts, and hoping for good fortune. Wealth builders take action to change their future by expanding their capabilities, gaining new experience, and pursuing new challenges.
How you can do this ?
Knowledge and Discipline – Investing requires a series of reading in an ever-changing world of investment and finance. Each choice has an element of risk that all or a portion of the investment will be lost, will return less than expected, or will return less than other investments that might have otherwise been chosen. Learning when to hold ’em or fold ’em is the skill every successful investor must learn, sometimes at significant cost. For discipline you have better option of SIP, just follow it. You don’t have to do anything for become disciplined investor.
Keep It Simple – Keep your financial life simple, don’t make it complex because simplicity will make your life awesome. I always call SIP (Simple Investment Plan) because it is much simple than any financial products. So one can start his financial journey with getting good knowledge and keeping it simple. If you think there’s much knowledge is available on internet, I’ll say only getting good knowledge won’t make you smart investor. So conclusion is ACTION, start taking action is necessary in your life.
