Investing Your Money for The Long-Term: A lesson from marathon runners

Mar 31, 2016 | Blog, Investing

There are many similarities between successfully running a marathon and successfully investing your money for the long-term. Investing not only requires the muscle (capital) to reach one’s long-term goals, but also the mental strength.

When comparing a marathon to investing, it’s easy to see why so many fail when it comes to money. Investors have to keep their eye on the finish line, and no matter their goal need to buckle down for the long-run. It can be very easy to get tempted into sprinting when “surefire” investments present themselves (such as with the Dot-Com Bubble), and it is just as easy to run out of wind and fail to reach your long-term goals. At the same time, it’s also very easy to give up and drop an investment during tough times, even though history has shown that it will most likely recover eventually.
