Investing and playing tennis may seem like two completely different activities, but there is a lot in common between the two.
In tennis, you win the game by playing consistent, smart shots rather than trying to hit every ball as hard as possible.
Similarly, in investing, you don’t need to hit every investment out of the park to be successful. This means avoiding impulsive decisions based on emotions or hype and instead focusing on consistency and discipline.
Success as a long-term investor is less about big one-off bets, but about paying attention to the little things and minimising mistakes.
As investing legend Charley Ellis once said, “In investing, if you could just reduce the number of mistakes you’ve made, you would come out as a winner.”
So, start playing the investing game like a pro and minimize your mistakes for maximum returns!
