Part 1 of 2: Six Life Principles That Also Apply to Investing

By Jeffrey Meenes, CFP® (Published Date February 22, 2024)

Beyond returns, a good investing experience depends on how you feel on the journey — just like in life.

Part 1: Navigating Uncertainty with Life Lessons in Investing

Life is full of uncertainty, from career choices to unexpected curveballs. But amidst the unknowns, we can find opportunity and growth. This philosophy also applies to investing, where uncertainty is not just a risk but the true basis for potential gain.1

This first blog post explores three key life lessons that translate directly to the world of investing:

Uncertainty Creates Opportunity

Embracing the unknown opens doors to possibilities we might otherwise miss. Just like taking a new job path can lead to unexpected rewards, accepting market fluctuations might present lucrative opportunities. Remember, without risk, there can be no reward.

Plan, Don't Predict

Trying to foresee the future is a losing game. Instead, focus on building a robust strategy to adapt to various scenarios. Think of it like packing for a trip - prepare for diverse possibilities, not just your ideal weather forecast. This empowers you to navigate unknowns with confidence.

Flexibility Adds Value

Being adaptable doesn't mean abandoning your goals. Rather, it allows you to seize opportunities that wouldn't fit a rigid plan. Being flexible with investment choices can unlock better returns or avoid missed chances.

Remember, navigating uncertainty doesn't mean stumbling blindly. By applying these life lessons to your investment strategy, you can build a path towards your financial goals, even when the future seems foggy. Stay tuned for part two, where we'll delve into the remaining three principles that bridge the gap between life and investing!
