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!

Lucky Or Unlucky When You First Get Started Investing Over Market Cycles

Read?  How Much Luck in Investing Success? My Experience in 2008/09

Hmm ... like that then Uncle8888 was unlucky to read that book Rich Dad. Poor Dad at the wrong time and triggered him to seriously started his journey to Get Out of Rat Race when STI was near its high at 2583 and then crashed down to 1198.

He was lucky or unlucky? Not sure but he did learn something very important and practically true!

Do you recall any other successful retail investors telling you this?

In investing, your account size really matters; but it takes time for you to grow your account size through saving from your earned income.

How often you hear this : Start investing when you are young and let the magic of compounding works for you!
