There’s no shortage of motivational expressions out there to inch us towards our goals – investing or otherwise.
What’s your favourite?
Is it the old adage, “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”?
Maybe history is your thing and you’re drawn to Winston Churchill’s insistence to never give up.
Or, in the spirit of resilience and persistence, you may love “the third time’s a charm.”
If we had to choose our favourite words of encouragement at RBC InvestEase when it comes to investing money and reaching your financial goals, we’d call on an old Chinese proverb:
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
That’s because we know that the key to investing is just getting started.
It’s true that if you had started investing one, two or five years ago, you’d be closer to your goals. But that’s not a very motivating way to think about it.
Really, the only thing that matters is that you start investing. And lucky you, in just a few minutes you can be on your way with RBC InvestEase.
Ten minutes is all it takes to answer some straightforward questions online about you and your goals, and then you can leave the rest to us. You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your couch to start investing. Find out more in How Does RBC InvestEase Work?
