Living a hassle-free life is the wish of many. A hassle-free life also means you could idle your life into poverty. The key to sustainable enjoyment is to invest, invest and continuously invest. Then you’ll have enough to live on for the rest of your life, hopefully, without hassle. But investing itself doesn’t mean you’ll have enough rest. The sleepless nights and days surely pay off in future.
Looking for investments every time means sacrificing part of your enjoyment and sleep. To find good investments, sometimes you have to travel around, far and near. You must meet people, and look everywhere in an attempt to identify viable opportunities.
Once you put your money in an investment, your work is about to begin. You have to practically monitor your investment every time, especially at the early stages. You must dedicate your time and sometimes upgrade your skills to be able to nurture and grow the investments, lest they begin to dwindle and disappear before your very eyes.
Losing is part of the game, not all of the game. Investing is not about losing money, it is about making money. However, you’d make losses at some points even if you stay awake every time. It’s part of the learning process. You must make sure you don’t repeat your mistakes and importantly, learn from them.
Like learning, investing is a lifelong path; you never come to an end. You’ll have to go through the cycle of identifying, evaluating, committing funds/time, managing and reinvesting each time. As your portfolio grows, the job becomes bigger. It is at this stage that you must learn to delegate part of the work to trusted hands and professionals, if you want to continue growing. You’ll stay at one place if you think you can do it all by yourself. Learn to trust your wealth in the hands of professionals.
Investing may bring along sleepless nights and tedious days but the rewards are surely gigantic; strong enough to guarantee you more sleep in future than you lost at the beginning.
