Why Investing in Stocks isn't Risky - Unless You Do It Wrong

You’re Afraid of the Stock Market

So many people I talk to are afraid of investing in the stock market. The fear of losing money greatly outweighs the idea that they can make a great deal of money.

For me, I think it comes down to an understanding of what you’re investing in. Before I got into this business, I was what you would call a Moderate Aggressive investor. I wasn’t totally sure why, but it sounded good to me as it talked about having good growth potential with a little less risk.

Once I really learned to understand the Stock Market and what I was actually investing in, my risk tolerance changed. I increased my risk to become an Aggressive investor, because I know that – in the end – Stocks will outperform Bonds. I just have to learn patience and not make decisions in times of market turmoil and I know I will be fine.

Now I am in no way saying that everyone should be an Aggressive investor, because it’s just not in everyone’s DNA, but I do think that everyone should get a better understanding of what they’re investing their hard-earned money in and if you do that, I think you’ll feel more comfortable investing in the right things, for the long term.

If you do it correctly, it is almost impossible to lose money over time.
