I think it’s human nature to remember negative experiences more than we do positive ones. It’s so easy to forget wise words in moments of weakness or crisis.
This is something I struggle with myself. That’s why whenever I read or listen to words that have been extremely valuable to me, I go back to them over and over, every now and then.
When the market sells off, or when a company I own has a bad quarter, like Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA)…boy, do I go back to those wise words!
I own books that I’ve read multiple times, because every now and then I need to be reminded of things.
Investing, for the most part, will be like watching paint dry. It will be pretty uneventful until it’s not. The days of boredom will outnumber days of excitement.
That’s just the nature of the beast.
However, when you don’t see much progress, and start to question why you are doing this…read my book, The Stock Market Is For Everyone, and remind yourself why you started investing in the first place.
Good advice will never go out of style. You should refer to it over and over again!
