Investment = Your Vehicle
Investment is a very important element to achieve your dreams. Think of your goal as a place. To reach it, you need a vehicle. Thus, investment is your vehicle.
You can choose to walk, ride a bicycle or take a plane, depending on what suits you best. Each vehicle will take you to your desired destination, albeit in a different fashion. The same goes for investment. After you decide on your financial goals and realize the importance of investment, you can start picking the best investment that meets your risk profile and investment character.
