Stoicism And Investing

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.

Investing is about 9 percent theory, 1 percent execution and 90 percent emotion management.

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.

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.
