find your balance

Do you remember learning to ride a bicycle as a kid and people will say, "Oh it's easy, just find your balance". Do you also recall that feeling of serenity and accomplishment when you finally did? It turns out that investors need to do the same as well. If riding a bike is about balancing your body between left and right, then investing is  seeking to find the balance between risk and return. Being too aggressive and taking on excessive risk could cause your portfolio to go down the drain. On the other hand, being too conservative and taking minimal risk could cause inflation to beat your portfolio and you end up not reaching your investment goal. Finding this balance is a journey all investors undertake. Some may find it earlier than others. As for me, I still haven't found my balance, although I feel close to it.  Happy investing!
