Let pencil become your Investment Advisor…..
I still remember my first pencil.It was red in color with black stripes. I can still visualize my mother taught me how to hold pencil and how to get good handwriting out of it .( Which still i am learning…)
You might wonder what is the connection between pencil and investment.It is highly connected want to know how?..Please read..
It has five qualities which, if you manage to hang on them, will make you a person who is always at peace with the world.
First quality: now and then, I have to stop writing and use a sharpener. That makes the pencil suffer a little, but afterwards,it’s much sharper. So you, too, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows, because they will make you a better person.
In investment sometimes you have to stop,wait for your turn & go ahead.It may happen that you have to book some loss.But this little pain will lead you to gain.
Second quality: the pencil always allows us to use an eraser to rub our mistakes.Sounds simple but very important.Whenever you feel my investment is not correct or not as per my expectation,Just erase.Take fresh paper & write again.
Third quality: what really matters in a pencil is not its wooden exterior, but the graphite inside. So always pay attention to what is happening inside you.
People around you may come to sell different investment & savings product to you.First ask what is inside it.Is it simply marketing & sales packaging or the investment which i am doing is really worth.It may happen some may offer higher return,better flexibility,unnecessary insurance cover,Buy what you want.
The pencil’s fourth quality: it always leaves a mark. in just the same way, you should know that everything you do in life will leave a mark.
Is each & every investment you make adding some value to your life or you in stress while thinking for it?.One should enjoy his each & every investment decision,
Finally, you are capable of great things, but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to His will.
You can prepare best plan,best execution strategy,give your 100% but sometimes it didn’t work.It goes other way. Accept it as a god will.Wait for your turn.
I am sure next time when you will hold the pencil will remember this five little investment lesson from it.Only drawback i found in pencil is you can not keep it on your shirts pocket & feel close to heart…..
