Why you should invest

Published on July 19, 2023, 11:17 a.m.

You have probably heard already that "you should let your money work for you". And there are plenty of stories outhere about smart individuals making a fortune overnight from their investments. Some of these stories are even true.

But that is not why we tell you to invest.

The main reason why you should invest is because that decision will take some money away from your spending. That, by itself, is the simplest method to get wealthier. It is also a method that is mostly under you control.

Consuming less could be a good thing, for a number of other reasons as well. For example, it will make you better prepared for difficult times: it is a valuable training, that will also leave you with more resources. It will also decrease your dependence on a monthly salary, which can only be stressful. By investing you are better positioned to get out of the vicious circle of consuming -> working hard -> needing more consuming to compensate for the effort -> working even harder ... and so on.

Investing entails full responsability for your decisions. It needs discipline to get an investment plan executed over the course of many years to come. For most people, this responsability is unpleasant. We can certainly help with this as the app does this authomatically for you.

When trying to decide to finally start investing, you need to aknowledge the fact that most likely you ALREADY invest. Yes, your investments might be some deposits or debit cards, but that's still investing, albeit bad investing. And that is an important point to accept, because there must have been a discrepance in your thinking so far:  you devote probably 8 hours a day or more to work, most likely for making money. Yet you IGNORE the fact that you don't make money on your earnings so far and you don't allocate 1 minute each week to invest (that's how much time it takes to invest using our app).

Ignoring is the root of much misery in people's life.
