Reminder to self: Investing can be scary but keep going

Investing one's money can be scary.  It took me a long time to get around this fear, and to land myself in a frame of mind to say, "yes, it's scary but it's less scary than losing my money to inflation."  Hence the moniker "Lateinvestor", lol.

I took that first leap into the market sometime late last year and boy, what a rewarding ride it has been!  I'm glad I overcame the fear of investing.

The market will always be volatile and ever-changing.  What I need to keep myself calm and keep launching into the deep waters of investing are some good advice from some prominent gurus.

1. Benjamin Franklin: An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
So read up!  Study, research, analyse.

2. Warren Buffett: Close the doors, Be fearful when others are greedy.  Be greedy when others are fearful.
When the market is down, go full throttle.  When the market is up, go away and rest a while.

3. Robert Arnott: In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable.
