- Managing your money requires more skill than making it.
- Savings will not make you rich, only smart investments will.
- Plan your play and play your plan. Let it not be a ship without a rudder, floating where the tide takes it.
- An investor’s worst enemy is not the market, but his own greed or fear.
- The market, like the Lord, helps those most who help themselves.
Don’t Miss the Golden Opportunity Knocking Your Door!
“Every challenge or adversity carries the seed of an opportunity that can be transformed into prosperity.” This golden quote needs to be best remembered in the context of any rough and tough times faced by an investor in the capital market.
People are retiring with more money today than at any time in India’s history. They are doing it by wisely investing in stocks, mutual funds, saving deposits, bullion, real estate and even in art. They are smartly securing their future with insurance and retirement annuities.
Investing in the stock market is not a rocket science. What trips up most people is that initial hurdle, the act of actually putting some money in the market in the first place. Millions of would-be investors never succeed because they never take the initial step – they never take the money out of their bank accounts and put it into the market. Their excuses are many – “the market is down right now,” “the market is too high now,” or simply, “I do not know anything about stock market,” – but the result is the same. You cannot make money in stocks (mutual funds included) if you do not buy some. If you let yourself get caught in this trap, you will never know the benefits of participating in the market. But if your have the courage to have the plunge, you can look forward to the rewards of a life time of wise investing.
It takes more than a good head for numbers to be successful in the capital market. You need patience and persistence and, at times, courage and conviction. Those who continue to invest and diversify invariably find themselves richly rewarded for their diligence. That is why your mission should read… ‘Be not a Bull nor a Bear, but truly a Sher!’
There is always a financial opportunity at your door step, that’s not “a pie in the sky,” and it’s up to you to make the most of it. All that is required is your willingness to learn the simple rules of the game and apply them with logic and common sense.
