“The Stock Market is designed to transfer money from the Active to the Patient.”
With today’s always going, ever moving attitude, it can be difficult to take a moment to just breathe. True, we are told that if you don’t grab the bull by the horns that you aren’t going to go very far, and that point is valid.
However, like your mother said, patience is a virtue. Taking a moment to sniff the roses can enrich your life both mentally and fiscally. One of the issues we are seeing with Millennials is the tendency for instant gratification rather than waiting for a larger return in the long run.
We need to be active members within our own lives, but without a little patience, you might miss out on the bigger and better things just around the corner.
