3 Simple Ways towards Better Investing

Like in sports, there’s no state as forever unbeatable, personal finance has no such fixed state of absolute success. When we repay debt, we achieve success, but that’s not all. We then try to accumulate wealth. We try to reach a financial freedom. For some leaving a large estate or donation to a charity is the personal finance success measures. So, the circle of finance continues from worst to good to better. Alas, there is no state as the ‘Best’.

3 Ways towards Better Investing

If you have surplus money, you sock it away in checking account, you earn some interest (negligible). When you sock it away in saving accounts, you earn some more interest from that deposit. When you rather invest your money you potentially earn a higher return from your investment. Fortunately and ironically no investment is best. One year stocks perform better, some other years, bonds perform better.

Your Prerequisites

(1) A mentor in the family, in the neighborhood, in the school, in the public eye or in books who can serve as a role model to emulate.
(2) A marketable skill. A skill that can earn money will become paid work. A skill that does not earn money will just become a hobby.
(3) Delayed gratification priorities. A dollar invested instead of spent today will be many more dollars available to spend in the future.
