Why do we work? Why do we go daily to work and that too for years?
Some people love their work and they enjoy what they do and that’s a good thing. But as per my understanding, every one goes to work for there livelihood, because we want to earn and generate wealth over long term. People want to create wealth, want to buy home and car, they want to go for vacations, they want to accumulate millions in 10 or 20 years.
People give 100% time to there work, but not even 1% for the motive behind the hard work they put, which is to generate long term wealth, for buying home, children education.
I have seen people who earn well, but fail to invest it properly, in fact in a wrong way, and hence they loose on that. Whats the use of working so hard if you cant invest it properly to achieve you goals, Is there any use of your working for so many years, and after all we work for money, and if we cant manage that money or don’t take some serious time to manage it, I personally consider it as waste.
he didn’t pay any attention to what he is buying, Does he really need it, how is it going to be beneficial to him.
One of my other friend took a Endowment policy with insurance of 10 lacs for 15 years with premium of around 90,000, when i asked her, how many financial dependents she had, she was clueless and when I cleared what i am asking she said, “No one”.
People don’t take any interest in knowing/learning/asking about financial instruments from anyone and take idiotic decisions, loosing there hard earned money. It does not take 1 hr / week or 4 hrs/month or 1 day / year to take fair decision (if not best) regarding your finances.
If people start giving 1% time to there investments and finances and 99% to there work compared to 100% time to work, they can do much better. A person earning 20,000 per month can generate more wealth than a person earning 50,000/month, with better investment technique.
“Money does not grow just by investing more, but disciplined and great investing technique.”
What do you think is the biggest reason for people in India for not taking financial planning serious?
