What do you expect from the time you invest in a relationship?
What do you expect from the love you invest in your children?
What do you expect from the money you invest in a business or the stock market?
What do you expect from the investment in your health?
What do you expect from all of your investments? What do you expect from them, and what happens to you after you make the investments?
The good news and the bad news is the returns you expect are rarely the returns you get. Sometimes you’re up and sometimes you’re down.
Does this mean you shouldn’t invest time, emotions and money? Well, it might. And that will depend on your tolerance for uncertainty and how you respond when things don’t go as expected.
If returns and results were guaranteed in any area of life then the world would be perfect, and boring. The one guaranteed return from your investments will be your experience. And how you respond to your experience will dictate your future investments.
