A Lesson From Cricket World Cup

A Lesson From Cricket World Cup
******
Tendulkar made a duck in the world cup match against minnows Bangladesh and the team also lost the match.
He returned home and was contemplating resignation.
However his brother intervened and told him that he must continue servimg the team with his contribution.
The team needed him for his game, his mentorship and his experience.
One's effort isn't to be a winner or a loser.
It is to serve and make the world a better place.
So retire you must but not now. This ain't the time. Now is the time for you to clear the mist that has formed before your eyes so that you may once again see your goal.
Imagine the world cup of 2011 in your hands. Shut your eyes and imagine hard. See the cup in your hands. Get your focus back in place.
And history got indeed written at the Wankhede stadium in 2011 when Dhoni hit the championship six and Tendulkar indeed had the cup in his hand.
In the world of personal finance, a man or a woman whose financial assets take a hit during a market down turn too need a Financial Advisor who who will :-
1) Stop the investor from quitting
2) Point towards the goal and reaffirm his determination.
3) Motivate him to continue his SIP
The above 3 mantras if followed will take the investor towards experiencing compounded returns and achieving his targeted goals.
And if one were to ignore the same and give up by redeeming his investment, the magic output of compounding would be lost, perhaps forever.
Hope you now understand why a guru, a leader, a Financial Advisor, a mentor are a very crucial ingredient of our lives.
