Life is a Race!


Life is a race which all of us invariably have to run!

So we look at Usain Bolt and see his sub-10 second dash across 100 meters and then see Mo Farah the historic 10000m runner. Both run at the Olympics. However ask Bolt if he would be able to run 10000m at his superfast pace and he would answer negatively. Infact he might exhaust himself so much that he might be unable to run even half that distance at that speed of his!

A civil engineer is reading the newspaper. He hears about a building crash in Mumbra, a remote suburb of Bombay. Apparently the building added six floors in around two months and the whole structure came crashing down.

He says “ These people are idiots. You can’t erect a building in one month. You need to make it slow and steady so each floor’s strength consolidates and the structure stands”

A Few kilometers away at a restaurant a man has placed an order for a spring roll. He is quarreling with the waiter who says “Sir how can I get Spring Roll in ten minutes? It will take time to cook. In ten minutes you can only get a raw half cooked version!”

Does an egg grow into a chicken worth culling in two days? No. The egg hatches and feeds in the broiler for two to four weeks before it reaches a weight where it can be killed and sold.

Nothing in life happens in a flash. Just like that finance is also not something to be done in a flash. It is a slow steady and step by step process. Just as a body of water is filled only by small drops of water so is finance.

Remember to invest periodically in a disciplined manner. Only then will your wealth grow. You can’t amass wealth in a flash. It’s a process where patience will give you rich rewards!
