Three Principles to

Achieve Financial Success

When examined what worked best in order to make sound financial decisions and achieve financial success, we found that there were three pillars:

Principle #1: Only learn from those who are already successful

If you want to be wealthy, you must think what the wealthy think and do what the wealthy do.

However, this is easier said than done. Successful people do not like to share their secrets, let alone share their failures. The good news is, as Tony Robbins put it, “Success leaves clues“. That is why I created a section called “Wealth Confidential” on my blog, to share the stories, insights and experiences of financially successful people.

In this section, you will find popular posts such as What does billionaire Philip Ng say about wealth and How Obama invests his money. You will find out Who are the billionaires in Singapore and of course, gain Insights from Warren Buffett.

Principle #2: Pay attention to the smart money, be an insider

If you are a DIY investor or have a genuine interest in investing, here is the place for you too. After all, who wants to miss the fun?

Being a strong believer in principle #1, I follow the best investor and fund managers, collect the best researches and thoughts. and I will share with you the latest investment ideas that I discovered here.

Principle #3: Know what you believe, what is actually false

You may think that if you knew something was wrong, you won’t believe it true in the first place. However, much of what many people believe is false in a world where there exists so much twisted information to meet the marketing needs of the financial industry. I explain the common myths and misconceptions and invite you to fathom what is seemingly unfathomable.

  • Why buy and hold strategy makes little sense
  • Why there is no long-term investing
  • 3 myths of STI ETF investing
  • 3 Myths of Bond ETF Investing
  • Each of the three pillars supports and enhances the others. Together, they’re much stronger than they would be if any of the pillars were missing. That’s not theory, by the way. I’ve tested and proven these concepts by applying these pillars to my own financial choices, and by teaching others to do the same.
