Why Investing in the Stock Market Should Be Like Falling in Love

Posted by Fitz Villafuerte under Investing on May 20, 2015

Investing in the stock market should be like falling in love; and here are 5 reasons why.

1. You should be willing to take the risk.

There is a real chance to lose money in the stock market, and that should be okay. Because like surviving a heartbreak – it will only make you stronger. So don’t be afraid to fall in love, and don’t be afraid to invest.

2. It’s better to get to know the other person first.

You don’t just open an account and invest in the stock market, you need to study first. Imagine telling a complete stranger that you love them – that’s exactly what you’re doing if you invest without knowing how the stock market works.

3. And you don’t immediately go all-in.

If you don’t know how to time the market, then it’s better to just invest a little, every so often. It’s the same way why you shouldn’t give everything on your first date, and instead choose to invest a little of yourself, during each moment you spend together.

4. You have to accept the other person, all the good and the bad.

The stock market is volatile and unpredictable. One moment it’s up, another moment and it’s down. It is not a perfect investment, much like there is no perfect partner. But you should learn to accept and love them, perfectly.

5. And you have to be in it for the long-term.

The longer you are invested in the stock market, the more rewarding it will be. This is not puppy love, nor a summer fling. It is a commitment that you should be willing to nurture for many years, in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad.
