Wise: Resolutions that last

Whether you like them or not, New Year’s resolutions are great to create a positive change in your life.

Maybe you always wanted to start a business, read a book a week, get a six-pack, or meditate more. The start of every year is the perfect opportunity to hit the reset button and do things differently.

There’s a lot of research that shows most people fail to keep their resolutions.

I’ve learned several techniques that increase the likelihood of success. One of my favorite ones is the following:

Don’t talk about your resolutions until you’ve made them happen.

Make a change for yourself. Imagine yourself accomplishing whatever you set out to do. Achieve that, and then tell people about it.

Wealthy: Guide to Investing

One of the most common New Year’s resolutions I’ve heard this time around is, “I want to start investing.”

Is it the right time? What if stocks will not perform well during the next decade? 

How much should I invest? What should I invest in? 

I tackle all these questions in my complete guide to investing. It’s a synthesis of all the articles I’ve published on investing over the past seven years.

If you’re a long-term reader of my blog, you know I avoid any type of scheme and only focus on the fundamentals.

If you want to get started with that, this guide is the best place to begin.

One interesting thing

I recently read Put Your Ass Where Your Heart Wants to Be by Steven Pressfield. I love these types of inspirational books by him. Here’s my favorite quote from the book:

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.”

Pick something you love so much you want to dedicate your life to it. When we’re dedicated, we will always find a way to make it happen. It’s only a matter of time.

Thanks for reading! I hope you found this edition of Wise & Wealthy useful.

All the best,
