What the Stock Market Can Teach You About Life

Zoom out and see the bigger picture

May 26, 2021

The stock market has a hidden message that you can learn from and apply to your life. If you ever take a look at stock prices, you will see that the share value of a company fluctuates each day.

But what's essential for the people who invest in stocks are not the shift in daily or hourly stock prices. What's more important is how the trend goes in the long term.

Similarly, in life, the quality of our day fluctuates each day. We shouldn't focus solely on the granular details. Because if we compare ourselves today and yesterday, we won't notice much difference.

That is why people tend to give up too soon. They forgot to zoom out and see the bigger picture.

Like stocks, we have our good days and bad days. Days in which you feel good about the things you did. And bad days where you knew you've wasted your time and you don't feel good about anything that happened on that day.

The difference with stocks? Instead of a stranger in Wall Street, it is you who determines the value of your day today.

What we do in each passing day influence where we will land in the future. You may not feel that you've changed a lot, but if you compare yourself right now to the person you were one year ago, you will see how much you have grown.

Instead of a stranger in Wall Street, it is you who determines the value of your day today.

Like stocks, we have our good days and bad days. What we do today will change the trajectory of our future. But unlike stocks, we can control how we want the day to be. Make the most of today.
