Do you invest?
Do you know others who invest?
Why do they do that?
If you don’t invest – why not?
Typically people invest because they feel investing is an effective way to put their money to work and potentially build wealth. Investing in a smart way may permit your money to grow faster than the rate of inflation and thereby increase in value.
The ability to grow and the power of investing and it’s potential is squarely on the power of compounding and the risk quotient of the investor. This makes sense to me. However, many people do not invest.
The majority of this group say they do not invest because they do not have the money available to invest.
Many add that they do not understand how to invest either.
Let’s change the question around a bit. Just a little change in wording.
Do you invest in yourself?
Specifically do you invest in your personal growth?
If you don’t invest in your personal growth – why not?
Billionaire, Warren Buffett says that the very best investment you can make is one that “you can’t beat, can’t be taxed and one that not even inflation can take away from you.” Buffett further states, ”ultimately, there’s one investment that supersedes all others: invest in yourself. Nobody can take away what you’ve got in yourself, and everybody has potential they haven’t used yet.”
This makes sense to me.
Now let’s link the first part to the second part.
For the folks who say they don’t invest because they don’t have the money and don’t understand how to invest…
You, anyone can invest in yourself, in your personal growth, for free to start!
There are many worthwhile books to read.
You can listen to any of thousands of podcasts.
There are workshops that are open to the public.
Really this means there are no more excuses.
It will only take the smallest effort from you to get started.
For everyone else who recognizes what Warren Buffett says is true and yet for one reason or another are not certain of the ROI for themselves – think about this –
