I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Trading for "passive income" using leverage vs Long-term investing for passive income using our own capital.

Just For Thinking ....
1984: Memories of the Brighton bomb

"Today we were unlucky, but remember we only have to be lucky once - you will have to be lucky always."

This was the IRA's chilling statement soon after they had carried out the attempted assassination of the British Cabinet at The Grand Hotel, Brighton, 20 years ago.

Trading for "passive income" using leverage vs Long-term investing for passive income using our own capital.

See the difference!

In trading for "passive income" using leverage e.g. selling naked options on margin account; you will have to be lucky always. One day you get very unlucky, you may blow up like this guy.

For long-term investing for passive income using our own capital, it is like mirror image of it.

You don't always get lucky for years; but one day, you may get lucky and grow a Money Tree that can produce high passive income for a long time.

When you have spend enough time reading, reading and reading many finance and investment blog postings over the years; but forget about those blog posts that have commercial interests in selling you courses.
Do you realise that Mr Market will always have his way to show us the right way to build our wealth from the stock market is through investing in companies growing their business revenues, cash flow and profits either through expanding, enhancing or innovating their products and services offering to their global consumers and producers?
