Do THIS Instead of FOMO Investing

What’s up, everyone? Hope you’re doing well! Please, do this instead of FOMO investing!

F.O.MO. = Fear of missing out

Ever felt like you missed an investing opportunity? Like Bitcoin?

Yeah, it’s not a great feeling. But here’s how to beat it…

Anti-FOMO Criteria

#1 Rest Easy

I know so many people who kick themselves for investments they missed in the past.

We can’t do anything about the past, we can only make decisions now.

Consider this…

I know someone who regretted not joining a startup business after it turned into a multi-billion-dollar company.

Looking back, he said, “I wish I would’ve done it.”

However, he was not in the financial situation to do so.

He had 2 nice cars and a big house with a huge mortgage payment. This guy couldn’t join a startup and afford to not get paid for 12 months!

He had a nice lifestyle, but he did not put himself in a situation to join a startup.

So, TODAY make sure that you are in a stable financial situation so that you can jump at an opportunity when it comes!

“You should always keep a lot of money in your checking account just in case a good opportunity comes”

Charlie Munger

#2 Remember the Rule

Dan Fleyshman taught me a rule that helps me be ready for opportunities…

It’s the 40-40-20 rule.

Dan said that the money in his portfolio consists of…

  • 40% – boring, stable investments
  • 40% – mid-tier risk: real estate, some stocks, etc.
  • 20% – the shot at glory: very risky investments that he could get a huge return from!

People that only take shots at glory usually bust.

#3 Regret Minimization Theory

Theory: If I have to decide between 2 investment options, I will choose the one that I would regret the least in 10 years.

It’s totally up to you!

Like I said in my video…

“Personally, I want to get rich only once in my life.”

I would rather build my companies, maintain my money, and grow my wealth than miss a few crazy good opportunities.

#4 Abundance Mindset

There’s a lot of resources and money on this planet. Realize that you’re not going to hit every opportunity.

If you miss a deal, that’s ok! If your friend hits it big, cheer them on!

Don’t spend your mental energy regretting everything!

So, do this instead of FOMO investing!

That’s it for today!
