Learned an important lesson about investing from the kitchen. Do you want to be financially stable? The concept should be understood.

The kitchen is full of things from which we can learn the most important lessons of life. Today I want to emphasize the importance of investing in our lives. I learn that from my kitchen.

I saw potatoes in my kitchen. What is its significance in our lives? How can you use it?

It can be used to make delicious curries, french fries, chips, vadapav etc. This list could be longer than we imagined. It is a very important thing in our lives. Life cannot be complete without it. Do you agree?

But I find in my kitchen that the stock of potatoes is reducing day by day when I start making my favorite dishes. I realized that the day would soon come when I would lose it all.

I can't imagine my life without it. So, I took 2 potatoes and cut them into small pieces. I plant those pieces in my home garden. Over time it gives me more potatoes out of it.

I understand the process but it is very difficult to determine how many potatoes I can spend for planting? Because, once I cut it and plant it in the ground, I can’t use the same potatoes. I have to wait until the harvest. So, I stress myself out and realize how many potatoes I can plant and how many potatoes to keep to make my favorite dishes until the new potato harvest?

This simple parable teaches us the importance of money in our lives. Replace the potatoes with the money, delicious items with the spending in day to day activities and plantation with the investment. Stress yourself and realize how much money you need to keep in everyday activities until the investment matures and how much you can invest? So, start investing before your kitchen becomes empty. This is a simple trick to succeed financially in life.
