The holidays are a special time of the year, a time for love and togetherness with friends and family. Too often, however, it becomes about gifts and spending. But we can change that through the stories we tell ourselves. Think about your most cherished holiday memories. Do they center around stuff you got or the people you were with?
Investing also revolves around stories we tell; popular stories, whether true or false, can affect the economy and markets. The key to successful long-term investing is to understand what the stories are telling you, while keeping your goals in focus.
For financial and holiday happiness, focus on life, rather than stuff, and continue to evolve your strategy towards the lifestyle, goals, and legacies you want to build ... and give yourself the gift of being.
Success in all your efforts,
