Investment Mantras to read daily for wealth

Hello Investor,

Doctor give medicine for health. I give some Investment Mantras to read daily for wealth.

  • 80% of gains come in 20% of time. So an investor needs enormous patience to hold investments for 10 or 20 years.
  • Why not all investors get rich? They like to get rich through a shortcut. But we all know process of becoming rich goes through many years of discipline & patience.
  • Compounding is back loaded. It works well only over a long period of time. There is no substitute for time in compounding.
  • 99% of the time, doing nothing is the best thing to do in the market. Activity hurts. Sit still.
  • You cannot predict or control market. What you can control is how much you save, investment process and behavior. Focus only on that.
  • Markets usually run ahead or fall behind. Rarely in stability. Over or under valuation cannot last for long time. Don’t time the market.
  • Buying and selling is action. Ultimate reward comes through ups and downs.
  • Not investing in equity is more risky than investing in it. Remember, you need to beat the inflation and retain your purchasing power.
  • We see past bear markets as missed opportunities. However at the same time we do not have guts to think of future bull markets. Strange investor psyche.
  • We question someone’s mental health if s/he keeps reviewing value of his house every day. But that’s what we keep doing with our equities.
  • Equity investments are subject to behavior risks.
  • Always keep a check on your emotions while investing.
