Who killed the Dog?
The Unfortunate Dog!
Out of fear he started barking at his own reflections and he was even more petrified to see all the reflections barked at him.
Terrified, the dog frantically barked and the reflections imitated the bark increasing it many times. The dog barked even harder and the echo was keeping up.
The dog tossed from one side to another, biting and beating in air – his reflections also tossed around snapping their teeth. This went on and on until the dog collapsed due to exhaustion.
Next morning, security guards at the museum found the lifeless dog surrounded by a million reflections.
Though there was no real threat, the unfortunate dog imagined it so and ended up killing himself.
Like the dog saw danger when there were none, in the world of investment scores of investors see danger, which appear to be real.
Every time markets go down people see danger, become fearful and end up making mistakes and lose their hard earned money.
They turn to media for guidance not realising that media can provide loads of information but can’t advice and handle their behavior. On the contrary media makes sensation and accentuates their fear.
Caught up in the web of their own fear arising out of paucity of knowledge and media exposure, more and more people are sinking in an imaginary ocean of fear.
All it would take is the guidance of a good Financial Advisor. An experienced financial advisor can educate and hand hold people in the entire process. More importantly with his experience he will be able to handle their emotions and prevent them from making costly mistakes.
A good financial advisor will certainly provide meaning and direction to their financial lives, by helping them understand where they stand, what they need and how they can move forward in achieving their financial dreams effortlessly.
