Why No good can come from FOMO As An Investment Strategy

What is Fear of Mission Out or “FOMO” ? Simply it’s a term used to describe the anxiety ( fear / greed as we described ) we experience when we see that other people are making money and we feel left out .

Social Media

Over the years Social media has become a major catalyst for FOMO. This is with everything in life but When you see updates on Facebook , Twitter Instagram etc it becomes more real and highlighting the incredible returns / profit that is being made by friends . Even if we want to feel happy that they enjoying great success however the other sids of our brain also asks us the “I” feeling knowing that we are not having that profit .

With this kind of situation people are easily diverted into situations where they follow do what so called experts say and loose out .

I use two principles personally and with my clients:

Principle 1 :You work hard for your money, you don’t want to put it in crazy situation. I always say you should do your research, talk to a financial expert and fully understand what you are investing your money in. If you “invest” your money into something you don’t understand it’s be. A big problem and our emotion greed and fear will create havoc with us .

Principle 2 : making money boils down to this in cryptocurrency is determined by the price you buy and the price you sell . What’s your exit strategy for that investment .

So please do your research and/or talk to a financial professional before start investing any questions please send them over

Growth comes from conquering the challenges

Conquering challenges

How true is this statement ? True Growth only comes from :pain, difficulty, transitions, heartbreak, and losses . What one finds is growth doesn’t come from stagnation.. growth comes from change , and the ability to adapt or pre empt them.

Change comes from within… and it comes from you , there no magic pill !

Growth happens when you let it.. when you accept, when you want it and are committed to carry out change .

“It’s impossible.” said pride.

“It’s risky.” said experience.

“It’s pointless.” said reason.

“Give it a try.” whispered the heart.”

Take the chance. Life has so many surprises.. when will I sleep next? will my card get declined if i book that ticket, is this all worth it? Will I get that job? Will my business succeed? Will I ever get married? You don’t always need a plan.. sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.

Be open to change.

Be open to self-growth & it will come.

Fear & Greed – Understanding how emotions are driving markets?

What most people forget when starting to look at investing is how much the emotions of fear and greed will play an important role in the behavior of stock / crypto prices , economic statistics, valuations, earnings, and . Short term these two emotions are just as important as any other factors or even more so .

This post will go through the role fear and greed play in the psychology of the market, and how investors can use it to their advantage . One of the greatest investors in the world uses this psychological techniques :

Warren Buffett on Fear and Greed

What is fear and greed?

For as long as investing has existed, it has been clear that price movements are not always rational, they are more emotion playing a key role in the decision making of investors. Of all the emotions that can affect the prices and other assets, fear and greed are the most unique .

Wen greed dominates, investors are concerned with more returns . Confidence is high, and headlines good news. This is also when the prices of riskier assets outperform conservative assets.

When fear dominates, investors are concerned with preserving capital. Investor confidence is low, and headlines of news are bad . This is when safe haven assets like US treasuries,gold , Bitcoin often outperform other asset classes.

How do emotions affect the stock market?

If you look at the price chart of any crypto / stock market index, you are likely to notice that volatility is greatest at major highs and lows. Very often these highs and lows don’t correspond with major changes in the economy or corporate profits either. Increasing volatility is a sure sign that emotion, particularly fear, is playing a part in the decision-making process of traders. Fear is not only associated with downside – the fear of missing out(FOMO) can drive prices to irrationally high levels.

I’ll write part two tomorrow on how to utilise this and

Rule 1 never Be Number 2

There’s a time in all lives when you realise what your calling and you make that decision to follow your life purpose, it feels very personal event. Mine was in collage when I was deciding university and decided I’m a business man not a employee .

When you make that decision its impact will have amazing effects on your life and that of those around you. Why I say that ? As when you because follow your gut instinct on the journey towards greatness , you will effect those that work for you , associated the community you work in .

People will see how you change and grow, and develop that spiritual side of yourself , but be careful as those around us might not want us to grow but say they do . Look at people actions not their words ,

I was bought up you live by example; you set personal etiquette , goals ,standards, as this what the outside world see in you and so that others can be inspired to do the same.

This is a continuous journey you build on these standards as you grow it’s a continuous journey .

I am big lover of history and stupid the great leaders , Winston Churchill , Nelson , Carnegie and the common thread is they never stops learning and is always a student in terms of their own development and discovery of truth and pushing themselves and their ability .

A common saying is being a candle flame in someone’s darkness so that they can find their way out again to the light. And you can show by your courage and strength of purpose that there is no need to be afraid; that everything in life is possible if you only live from your heart.

All it takes to be a leader is your determination to continue your journey.

Focus on solution

Something this situation has re emphasised to me #focus on #solutions and keeping a #positivemindset and then taking the actions to fulfil them, #motivationalquotes #mindset #goalsetting
