"The only thing I know with certainty about the future is that it is coming and begins right now and goes on forever..."
What I took from this passage was that it is imperative that you take action NOW. Those who choose to only dream will never succeed. Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream but he also had action, massive action and he changed the world.
A - L + I - S = EA
EA = MF
Simply put... Assets - Liabilities + Income - Spending = Excess Assets
Excess Assets = More Freedom!
The Uncertain Investor... Understands that there are known unknowns and unknown unknowns and yet still invests because he must. He understands that "to not invest is to make an investment decision"
Having been attracted to day trading and the stock market in general I completely agree with the concept that sometimes the best trade is no trade at all. This same concept should be applied with investing in general because our time on this planet is depreciating the second we are conceived... and that doesn't include the unforeseen early deaths that we may be subject to.
We are all come to this life a born investor. Some people invest wisely and find financial freedom and others invest in poverty.
