AN EXAMPLE WILL TELL YOU HOW WITH LESS MONEY YOU CAN BE RICH

Once upon a time their were two individuals naming john and adam. John was earning 8k per month and adam was at 20k per month. Both of them were nearly the same age and with same educational qualifications.

But there was one basic difference between both, that John was financially literate and Adam lacks in that skill.

So john starting focusing on assets and starting minimizing the liabilities thus minimizing the expenses. He started learning about investment due to this he invested in mutual fund shown down below

At age 20: John invest 2k per month from his salary in mutual fund and expected a minimal return of 12% per anum.

At age 30: John accumulated 4.6 lakhs.

At age 60: John managed to collect to 2.4 crores.

You will shocked to see that the actual money john invest all these years is just 9.6 lakhs and he managed to earn 2.4 crores. Isn’t it great.

This is power of compound interest. John only invested in single mutual fund all his time of living and he still managed to accumulate great wealth.

Imagine investing in multiple places like stocks, bonds, real estates and reinvesting the profits from previous assets into further assets. The amount of money you will earn will surely become out of your control.

On the other hand, Adam got stuck in the rat race, doing what others told them to do, thus always jumped into the latest trends, buying expensive clothing, shoes, latest mobile phones etc. Read our article ” why 95% of people are unsuccessful” for furthur knowledge about this topic.
