Long-term investing is more like a marathon race. At the Starting Point, you can see thousands and thousands of runners lining up to start the race. They all look like they are going to complete the race but many will not.
Once the race begins, sooner or later some will start jogging or walking. Many more will eventually give up and go home instead of trying their best to reach the Finishing Line.
Like a marathon race, tons of people will come to the market to invest but sooner or later many more will slowly give up. Only those who are very determined, have strong investing goals, plenty of mental, emotional and financial stamina will be able to find ways and means to complete this race whether by walking, jogging or running.
Did you enjoy really your marathon race?
