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!

It happened again – Self-enhancing transmission bias

Read? It happened again – Self-enhancing transmission bias


The good news is:  Apparently everyone shares their successes more than their failures.

The bad news is:  This Self-Enhancing Transmission Bias leads to a false perception of reality and inability to accurately assess situations.

CW8888: Well said. Good one!

Hope more hobbyist bloggers will share more reality on investing and trading. It is not like those bloggers with vested interests sharing that you follow this and that. You will get XX% annualized return.

Not that easy folks!

But, it is still okay if you treat your course fees like losing your money in ToTo or 4D.

When Uncle8888 showed these images to some of his younger colleagues who think that long-term investing is the path to financial independence. He hopes that these images will strike them hard enough. Long-term investing may NOT necessary end up with more wealth if they got it seriously wrong somewhere along their investing journey.

Look careful. What it takes to be successful but bulk of the time is NOT!

    Sorry, am a bit slow and only realized now that you quoted from my post and build on it further by sharing a great chart for reality check.
