During my uni days, an exchange program with PRC undergraduates cause me to suffer from inferior self-complex for years. I was with a Singapore delgate of scholars and pupils in Dean List. I laugh aloud that my lecturer must not have know the criteria for the exchange program. I am then the neighborhood average friendly spider.
Just when I thought I should not compare and focus on my strength, I realised the PRC scholars are doing masters and PHD. How will I catch up with them, how to I even compete?
Looking back, life has been good to me. I might not have been a Coporate high flier, but I have no complains. One step at a time.
When I started investing, I wanted very much to have a big portfolio. When I read bloggers with eye popping dividends and stock gains, I was jealous, and again a sense of inferiority wash over me.
I remember we truing very hard to pump up my portfolio, all equity without emergency fund.
Now, I am happy with my punny portfolio. Well, I wished it could be better. But no sense of urgency to pump it up. One step at a time
When I am caregiving. I worried about medical costs, fret over suffering of loved ones, wondered if I managed. All I wanted very often was a good night sleep then. Big brother shall provide. One step at a time
As a father, a hubby, a teacher, a son, a Investor. Give your best. One step at a time. Sleep.
