Is It Time to Change Your Financial Strategy?

February 2, 2023


After the last year, we have been getting lots of questions about if you should change your investment strategy. Last year was not a great year for many, and it can be disheartening to watch your hard-earned money decrease in value.

The key to overcoming these fears and doubts is to take a bigger picture view and focus on the bigger goal. If you’re saving for the future and building towards financial independence, it’s important to remember that investing is a long-term game. While 2022 was a painful year, it’s just a blip on the radar when you look at the bigger picture.

Looking at the S&P 500 from October of 2007 to the end of 2012, you might be discouraged by the fact that the market didn’t seem to do much, closing at $1,565 in October of 2007 and $1,563 nearly six years later. This is just the surface-level view. In reality, the S&P 500 was flat for those six years, but those who were investing and always buying into the market were actually building wealth.

A good financial advisor is not going to sit on the sidelines and watch their money go flat for six years, but instead, always be buying, good news or bad. The human condition is always expanding, and there will always be opportunities to make money, even from disruptive technology like chatbots and AI.

There are outliers in the market, but it’s important to stay the course and be automated in your wealth-building process. By always buying, you’ll likely like how it all plays out in the long run.

In conclusion, 2022 may have been a difficult year, but it’s important to remember that investing is a long-term game. The human condition is always expanding, and there will always be opportunities to make money. The key is to stay the course, always be buying, and stay focused on the bigger picture.
