sometimes it's hard to open your hand..


A Lesson From Cricket World Cup

A Lesson From Cricket World Cup
******
Tendulkar made a duck in the world cup match against minnows Bangladesh and the team also lost the match.
He returned home and was contemplating resignation.
However his brother intervened and told him that he must continue servimg the team with his contribution.
The team needed him for his game, his mentorship and his experience.
One's effort isn't to be a winner or a loser.
It is to serve and make the world a better place.
So retire you must but not now. This ain't the time. Now is the time for you to clear the mist that has formed before your eyes so that you may once again see your goal.
Imagine the world cup of 2011 in your hands. Shut your eyes and imagine hard. See the cup in your hands. Get your focus back in place.
And history got indeed written at the Wankhede stadium in 2011 when Dhoni hit the championship six and Tendulkar indeed had the cup in his hand.
In the world of personal finance, a man or a woman whose financial assets take a hit during a market down turn too need a Financial Advisor who who will :-
1) Stop the investor from quitting
2) Point towards the goal and reaffirm his determination.
3) Motivate him to continue his SIP
The above 3 mantras if followed will take the investor towards experiencing compounded returns and achieving his targeted goals.
And if one were to ignore the same and give up by redeeming his investment, the magic output of compounding would be lost, perhaps forever.
Hope you now understand why a guru, a leader, a Financial Advisor, a mentor are a very crucial ingredient of our lives.

respectful Holi.

Imagine if your investment was redeemed without your permission. Or if someone scratched your car without your permission
Please do not color people without their permission. Observe a respectful Holi.

Lessons of Personal Finance from BJPs performance


1)Have a clear goal ; Development for all is their goal and being consistent about their goal has been their strength. This was their goal in the general election and has been the goal in all subsequent elections. 2) Keep moving and be focussed on doing rather than saying. Sustain your SIP.
3)Ignore market noise. Opposition trying to tarnish the image of the BJP as a non secular party even though the party itself is saying sab ka vikas , opposition screaming hoarse about demonetization. The trick is to ignore market noise and keep doing your SIP. Don’t allow your investment strategy to get derailed.
4) Have trust in your leader /Financial Advisor. Don’t look at your competition but instead look at the larger picture which in the financial context translates to focus on the long term rather than the short term. Take short term failures on your stride and move on. For BJP Delhi and Bihar were failures but to move on without changing the focus on the vision was their way of persevering. Do it with your SIP. Trust the economy, trust the market. Don’t worry about short term losses. Don’t look at FD.
5) Patience and efforts pay rich dividends in the form of compounding both in the political context and in the context of personal finance.

Investment Lesson from team India’s victory



If team India was a mutual fund, most investors would have started the process redeeming when the team scored another low score in their first innings.
And the moment Australia took the lead, the redemptions would have accelerated.
By the time the team collapsed in the second innings all but a handful would have redeemed.
The handful who then experienced the power of compounding over the last two hours.
When the last minute surge is experienced and compounding takes root, alas it’s a little too late in the day to get back into the fray.
No wonder it is lonely at the top.
Staying invested is lesson learnt to be so easily forgotten.
So silly. Isn’t it so?

Classic example of inflation when I bought MILK today morning....

Classic example of inflation when I bought MILK today morning....😱😱😳😳

Amul hikes milk price by 2 rupees per litre.

Rate in  March 2007 per litre after 2 rate hike in 2006...

Gold 19
Shakti 17
Taza 15

Today's rate

Gold 52
Shakti 48
Taza 40

Milk price (INFLATION/ MOGHWARI) increased annually by 10.5%

You bank FD, insurance policy, gold and real estate can't beat this inflation  ( 5- 6 % tax free return of such investment)

Your return (5%)  - Inflation (10%) = 5% LOSS on your Investment

My Finology always reminds you that INFLATION is the biggest risk in the world.

Do you know the PROFIT or LOSS of AMUL?

The profit of this business is more than inflation (15-20%). You should buy this business via equity investment.

There are many good businesses (like banking, software, petroleum, pharma, hospital, auto, consumer  and many more) which beat inflation significantly.  For that you have to buy equities  so that you become a parter of that businesses.

But how do you find such good businesses?

It's not your cup of tea but YES , it's a job of fund manager. So you must invest via mutual fund to beat inflation  ( 12-15% tax free return)

Still you think, you beat inflation by investing in traditional investment instruments like, FD, GOLD?

She Understand...



She knows the essence
Of nine months patience
She understands what’s small
Can grow very tall
It’s her second nature
To protect and to nurture
She therefore best knows
What’s insurance and why investment grows
Happy women’s day

Health and Wealth Poem

Health and Wealth Poem

Money lying idle cannot pay your bill
People lying idle makes them ill
Late investing hurts your wealth
Late to begin exercises hurts your health
Incorrect investing takes you back
Incorrect exercises causes pain in your back
Ignoring inflation makes you poor
Ignoring symptoms takes away the cure
