Ten years ago, if anyone tell you Greece and Spain will go bankrupt, you will think he is insane. Today, this is the fact. I am not an economic expert, I don't know about their problem and also don't know how complicated is it. But I do know one simple quote, if you want to be poor, focus on spending. If you want to be rich, focus on earning, keeping and investing the money. Borrow money just for spend it to enjoy now and pay later is a bad idea. Rich people know how to borrow money, or use other people's money to earn the higher return.
I like the investment in stock market. It's the best way to keep your money against inflation. In fact, it's the friend of inflation if you choose the right company to invest. Over the years, you will be able to see your asset grow double or triple. In fact, I would say, Stock Market is the greatest invention for people to create wealth! The beauty of stock market is the price movement. Through the up and down trend, it provide opportunity for many's to earn extra money.
Small investor can learn how to value the company and invest to make money. The corporate will learn how to grow their business and profit, investors communities will then give mark which reflected into their company's stock price. The market participant will give each corporate a value base on their current prospect and future growing strategy. This will create the market movement for the share price.
For a mature stock market, no one can predict or control the share price. The only way, you need to accept and respect the trend, ride on it and use it to your advantage. Once you involve in stock market, you will learn that, we are facing with a very big ocean, and how small we are, learn to be hamble. We don't know what will happen in tomorrow's stock price, the only way is learn to accept and adjust our step according to the trend. It's the most practical place for us to learn how to overcome fear and greed.
We should appreciate, there are many things we can learn from the stock market. Over the years, you will know how small you are when facing the whole market. The most important, we can control and drive our direction to reduce the risk and at the same time enjoy the way of making money. Feel proud and appreciate!
