Do you invest for yourself? If you don’t, you’re not maximizing your investing potential. Unfortunately, the majority of people are still being sucked in by the old conventional wisdom that says, “save your money and then turn it over to a mutual fund manager and everything will work out.”

Stock Market Success

You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to realize that method doesn’t work and never did.

How do you think mutual fund companies and investment banks are able to pay their employees so much money each year? Where does the money come from to pay their top executives tens of millions of dollars every year?

It comes from all those “investors” who believe handing over their money to others is the right way to go. It isn’t. And if you’re in that boat, you’re losing out on millions of dollars that should be yours over your investing lifetime.

In fact, over 80% of actively managed mutual funds underperform the markets. And investors pay high fees for that dubious record.

You’ve probably noticed by now the vast majority of people never become rich by the time they retire. There’s a reason for that and it involves these people not taking responsibility for their own investments.

You have to position your portfolio correctly to achieve solid, long-term wealth. It just doesn’t happen by accident.

Dreaming about having a multi-million dollar portfolio, when you retire, by following conventional wisdom is like being in a strange place trying to find your way in the dark. You just don’t know what to do next. However when you turn on the lights, everything becomes clear. You know the next step to take, you see what needs to be done.

If you’re one of the few people who invests their own money rather than relying on others who don’t have your best interests at heart, that’s good, but probably not good enough. Unless you’re following a proven plan that allows you to outperform the markets, you’re falling behind and will most likely never be wealthy.

On the other hand, investing properly and following the proven Warren Buffett value investing strategy positions you to be one of the relative few who build their wealth efficiently, effectively and as quickly as possible.

That’s how Buffett did it and that’s how you can do it too. The sooner you get started following Buffett’s value investing plan, and stop trying anything and everything, the sooner you’ll be successful.

Fortunately, this is easy to do because ultra-successful investing is something you can learn. You don’t have to be blessed with a special “investing” gene or have parents who were super-investors. You don’t even have to have a college degree or need to be an accomplished mathematician.

All you need is the correct information and the discipline and perseverance to see it through.

The more you learn and the more experience you build, the more money your investments will make and the less risks you’ll take.

There are lots of great books available that discuss value investing. In fact, you can obtain a wealth of information for free directly from the main man himself. Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway website is a treasure trove of top-notch information free for the taking. Visit and spend a few hours going through the information there.

If you want a shortcut to investing success, I’ve written a book called, “The Pragmatic Investor,” which gives you a head start to implementing a profitable Value Investing strategy.

There are a number of ways to get started quickly. All you need to do is decide to get started and then take the appropriate action. It can pay off like nothing else you do in your lifetime.
