- For young people, one of the biggest reason for delaying in investing is because they think they are currently doing fine with whatever they are dealing with; jobs, career, etc. They think they are earning good salary and can get more in the future so why bother investing. However, it is a misunderstanding most young people adapt to believe that the harder you work the higher you can be. Through investing, you can create wealth. Instead of setting a plan how to spend your salary, you can create more by investing.
- Another thing that can delay from investing is the feeling of being incompetent. You think you are too young to invest and you lack of confidence as well as knowledge to do so. Of course, property investing requires money, skills, and knowledge. However, you can get yourself educate before and throughout your investing journey.
