It feels great to be able to wish all of you a very happy Diwali once again!
As we come close to the end of the year, I’m glad that it has been better in terms of economic circumstances than last year, and hopefully the last few days of this year will pass by uneventfully as well.
There are two things that come to mind when I reflect on the year that’s almost gone. First is that you really have to take a much longer term view of things than you’re usually inclined to do. If you remember this time last year, you will remember how negative everyone was on the markets, and in less than twelve months all that has changed. Anyone who just focused on the short term during that time lost on a very good opportunity to invest in the markets.
The second thing is to focus on the things that you can control and not worry about things that are out of your control. There is nothing you can do if the whole of Europe goes into depression tomorrow or if Dubai defaults but there is a lot you can do to save an extra 1000 bucks every month so that’s where your focus should really be.
A happy Diwali to all OneMint readers! May you live long and prosper!
