Many young adults don’t realize the essence of investing. They are more occupied on things that won’t make them financially secured in the future. They are avoiding the responsibilities and obligations and are more concentrated on things that will make them happy today and tomorrow but never in the future.
Some of my batch in High School is now independent and business wise while some of them are just the same: Child-like who wants fun and party rather than planning about their future. They can even pay for an expensive gadget that will only depreciate later on. I have also acquaintances in college who doesn’t want to invest because of many excuses.
“I am poor, I don’t have money.”
A poverty mentality creates destructive thoughts. People always think about what’s missing in their life rather than thinking about prosperity. They often complain rather than making solutions. I know someone who’s living in a squatter’s area. They’re living there since she was born and they’re living there for free. I advised her to invest in their own property where they can live with utmost security and tranquility but she said “I can’t afford that.” I know some people will agree with her but NO, it’s a poverty mentality. Informal settlers usually declined to invest in their own property because they are already have one and it’s free. The reason why they chose to squat in someone’s property rather than building their own home in their own lot is because they don’t want responsibility.
“I’m still young. Investments are for oldies.”
Imagine yourself twenty years from now, you’re on your forties maybe fifties and you still have no investments. I met this woman who lives in an apartment with her family for almost thirty years! She’s been paying her monthly rent since she started having her own family and I was surprised because of these words, “If I am wise during my time back then, maybe I have a lot of properties now and I am more financially secured.” I was enlightened upon hearing those words from her, I just realized that I am on the right track and I must share this to everyone.
Everyone can have a better life in the future regardless of what you’ve been going through today. Remember, there is no permanent in this world. We are the architect of our own destiny. It’s better to plan today than to face many problems later on. Plan for your future. Start young…
