Firstly you may be thinking who is warren buffet? Why we are talking about him.

The answer in might is you know if you are an investor or a stock market guy. He is the richest investor in the world. He made all of his wealth from investing in the stock market.

He was not super wealthy by birth.  He was born into a normal family. And he started his investment journey at 11 years old.

In the start, he made money by selling newspapers, chewing gum and coco-cola door to door.

Just think from selling newspaper from door to door he made the richest investors in the world. How awesome is that journey?

Warren Buffet

Common Mistake People Do

Most people do this mistake that when they got their first salary they just start spending.

They spend on new costly clothes, gadgets like a new mobile phone, new television, etc.

This makes them feel happy for some time. But if you see the long term picture this can’t give them any worth, because all the physical things they depreciate their value with time.

I am not saying that you should not buy things that make you happy. I am just saying that you should not buy those things which you don’t need.

Most of the people spend all their salary on these things. Thay neither save much money nor invest.

How much you earn doesn’t matter. If you want to become rich in the long term then how much you save matters a lot.

And secondly, how well you invest that money.

Now you may think if you take an example of the SIP if you only save 4000 extra money every month and invest that money then after 35 years from this extra saving you will have 33 crore rupees.

Most people do this mistake that they start saving at the age of 25-30 year, This is too late. This is one of the most important reasons why the warren buffet is so rich because he started saving at the age of 11 years.

Now he is 90 years, It means he is saving from the last 79 years. Lsat 79 years he is saving every month.

If we save only 4000 rupees and invest them well for 79 years, can you imagine how much wealth you can accumulate? Let me tell you, we will have 2 lakh crore rupees. Only from saving 4000 rupees monthly and investing them well.

Now some people thought about inflation. Let me tell you- yes, inflation is a very big cause to reduce your investment. But in India normally the inflation rate is 6-7% per year.

This will not affect your investment much if you do some research before investment.

Inflation will affect if you are invested in f.d or any other fixed instrument where you get only an 8-9% return per year. But if you wisely invest your savings then you can get 20-25% or even 30% return per year in the stock market on your savings.

How to get a 25-30 % return on your investment

There some people may ask that if warren Buffett gets 21% CAGR (compound annual growth rate) then how we can get more return then him.

And also many mutual fund advisers and mutual fund companies advertise that if you are getting 15-16% CAGR, it is good.

But this is the most misleading fact, even they want you to think that getting 15-16% CAGR is a good thing.

Now, if we talk about Warren Buffett, he has a very huge amount of wealth, so getting only 21% CAGR is a very fantastic thing. He also accepts this fact that if he had some lacks or some crore rupees then he can get 40-45% CAGR easily.

You may know this fact that in India only Sensex gives 15-16% CAGR for the last 15 years. So if we do some research and invest according to that then we can get more than 20-25% CAGR easily.

We also have to know that the US is a developed nation, growth rate os the US is very slow, the US index gives 6% CAGR. India is a developing nation, India is a growing economy, Indian index gives 15% CAGR.

You can easily get more than 20-25% CAGR if you do some research from your end and invest in good stocks. If any mutual fund adviser is saying you to keep your expectation, it means he wants you to keep your expectation low, so that if he performs poorly you can’t complain.

How to Save More

This is the first thing we should know because when we save more then we can invest more and then we can get more return.

If we talk about warren buffet in spite of being so rich even today he is living in his 50 years old house. He can buy a big house but he doesn’t buy. Because he knows the power of saving.

 He doesn’t have any luxury car. Even he doesn’t have any charted plane.

HE is more focused on savings. He says that he made rich by his savings.
