Over the last few years, I transitioned into an investing career. I decided to invest in people that could deliver instead of doing everything myself. I had read tons of content on how the investing is the real way to build wealth. That time is limited and the real progress is made when you use your wealth to make wealth.
But it hasn’t worked out that well so far.
I also read and believed that abundance mindset is the way to go. Resources aren’t limited. Love isn’t limited. Kindness isn’t limited. Making money isn’t a zero sum game. Someone else’s success isn’t your failure. That you need to be happy for success of other people instead of showing resentment. That you need to share more of what you have.
I believed that if I helped more people, I’ll eventually find people worth investing in and so having an abundance mindset will eventually make my investing career a success.
This didn’t work out so well either.
The problems with failures in return of the acts of kindness is that you lose your faith more quickly and start doubting your actions faster.
You are led to believe by your own experiences that investing and abundance is a lie. That things do not work like that in the real world.
At this point you could scrap your learnings about investing and abundance based on your little experiences. Or you could continue to hold them close based on the experiences of many other people who you consider wiser than yourself.
To do the latter, you will need to be patient. Investing, however, has always been a game meant for the patient.
