Amar Pandit , CFA , CFP

Have you ever tried losing weight? Many of us have at some point of time and we all should relate to this.

The process is as follows:

  1. We Start Losing Weight – though hard but it is still easy.
  2. Maintain that Weight Now for the next 5 years – This is the hardest part.

Now apply the same process to Investing

  1. Start Investing – Easy isn’t it?
  2. Stay Invested – Extremely Difficult – There are too many distractions: Media, Friends, Cocktail Conversations, Financial Astrology, and many others.

What do you think is common?

The Answer is YOU. The common problem between investing and losing weight is YOU. The only Thing standing in your way is YOU.

Do not let YOU come between you and your goals.
