A lot has been happening. The last few days have been very busy, but at the same time have been loads of fun too. I have always enjoyed doing new things and I feel one of the best ways to stay happy is to keep yourself busy and occupied doing things you love. I will try to share some of the things that happened over the week.
My car got towed a few days ago and I ended up paying a fine. I had made the mistake of parking it in a “No Parking Zone” just because several others had parked their cars in the same area. I had tried to find comfort in simply following the herd and doing what they did. All our cars got towed. Sometimes I should apply the same principles I use for investing, even when it comes to parking my car. Investing is a lot like life, and life is a lot like investing.
It is really interesting how much we can learn from our own life, if we just look closer and observe what all is happening around us.
Another interesting thing that happened was Chirag Khilosia, a fellow Happionaire, shared details about a very interesting website called www.kiva.org which helps entrepreneurs with micro-finance. I checked out their website and their projects did seem interesting. However, I was unable to find any project which helps small entrepreneurs in
I have also decided to let more Happionaires be heard, and from now on I am inviting guest writers for The Happionaire Blog who can share their ideas and thoughts with others. There aren’t any guidelines; however the posts should be related to all other Happionaires here. If you have something to share with other Happionaires just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and if we think it is interesting we shall put it up on our blog.
Several times people ask me if I trade with a small part of my capital. I just had somebody asking me that yesterday. Personally I don’t trade as I don’t understand it well, but I have allocated around 10%-15% of my capital for trading. I have somebody who understands technicals well trade for me. I feel very few people can manage to trade and invest successfully at the same time, as the mindset is very different. Rakesh Jhunjhunwala is one of the few rare examples who trades as well as invests. I shall share more on this later.
Have a great week ahead and continue spreading the love, peace and happiness!
