Why Consider Investing? Beginners Guide

Part 1

Let’s assume you’re a salaried person and your salary is Rs. 50k a month. You work-hard for the whole day in office and get this salary at the end of the month. You hardly get any time to spend with your loved ones. If there is any other time left, you’re already stuck up with some or the other household chores to do. Your weekends are already occupied and you are left with no money. So why would you consider investing? Why should you bother reading this any further?

Trust me, I’m going to give you a very special advice here today, that nobody else will.

On the other hand, there’s your friend who doesn’t have a job neither a business but he still gets Rs. 50k a month. Why? Probably because his father left an extra apartment for him as an inheritance which he is renting out and gets this money as rent.

Imagine if you get this salary without working, what kind of freedom would you be living in? Maybe your parents didn’t leave an extra property as an inheritance for you. But the question is, how can you find this level of financial freedom in life?

Legally, there are only two options of getting regular money.
Option 1) YOU work for MONEY. Option 2) Let the MONEY work for YOU.

Unfortunately, more than 99% of the time, people chose Option 1, i.e. to work for money. And because of this, they work until they die OR someone comes to rescue them (like the son who starts working so a father can retire).

It is not you or me who is to be blamed. It is how we are taught this world functions since childhood.

My simple question to you is: Do you rather want to just look rich or be actually rich, healthy and happy from inside?
Actually rich, right?

Investing isn’t only for rich or for some super smart nerds. Hence government of India now force almost every employee to contribute something to PF (which is nothing but investing) so you can let the MONEY work for YOU and reap the benefits when you decide to retire at 58 and get monthly pension.

However, the real question here is.. what if I say, I’d like to retire a lot earlier than 58? I don’t want to have financial freedom so late when I already have multiple diseases or disorders, had few heart attacks in the past and if decide to walk for few minutes, I start to have knee pain.

It is sad but that’s the harsh reality. According to a research, the frequency of heart-attacks has increased more in 30s and 40s. In fact, the average life expectancy in India is 68 years. Hence, even if I survive until my retirement age, all the odds are saying that I’m going to die within a decade of retiring.

So what should I do in that case to achieve financial freedom early?
The answer is quite simple: “Start investing more and early”.

These are the golden words which many don’t hear or just ignore in their entire lifespan of 60-70 years and remain a part of rat-race, because they do not know that the Option 2 exists.
And, for people who know that they need to invest, doesn’t know where to invest for best returns.

“Money makes money. And the money that money makes, makes more money.”
