Investing is about 9 percent theory, 1 percent execution and 90 percent emotion management.
Not everyone becomes a multimillionaire, at least not in the short run. The good news is that there are a lot of financial opportunities in the world, and it is possible to build wealth using public markets as a long term investment. Investment requires managing our emotions, and not to be bogged down by the ups and downs of the volatile markets.
Stoicism is a life-survival strategy, a way to protect one’s sanity while facing the ups and downs of life. It helps us focus on what we can control and to let go of the stuff we cannot control.
While not many are aware of this, stoicism embraces money and wealth, and advises a person to make money with honesty, dignity and trustworthiness.
No matter how little you earn using income-generating skills like writing, speaking, coding or managing, you can get started with investing by simply earning more than your expenses.
One needs to focus on the income-generation part and create value out of nothing, using one’s skills.
We all have loss aversion, preferring to avoid losses even with the opportunity cost of gaining profits. Losing money, in fact, is a necessary rite of passage that most are not okay with.
The best investors are the ones losing money, but who are smart enough to never lose more than 10 percent of their investment by applying diversification and other investment philosophies.
Stoic investors make smart, balanced bets. Most of us invest in secure funds with low returns. Investors looking at bigger returns opt for index funds. If you are okay with losing money, that does not mean that you should.
The 90/10 investing thumb rule states that we should put 90 percent of our money into stock investments in index funds with moderate to high returns. The rest of the investment money should be used to speculate on the short-term risks like currencies, Bitcoin etc, that offer a high upside.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
