1 big reasons why I am not investing in bitcoin?

I won’t lie - I am tempted to invest in bitcoin. I am looking at its number for a long time. I guess I am not alone. Thousands of people were waiting if that magical coin can get over 10k$. And it did. No surprise. And here comes the big but.

But I am still not investing my money, and even more important, I am not investing my time into it. The reason is in my nature. I like gambling. I like it a lot. The idea of getting money without working for it’s awesome; especially if big returns are promised.

So why I am not investing if everything sounds perfect for me? It’s because I made a decision. I am not seeking quick returns. Two things I learned in a short life of mine is that “easy come, easy go” and that “I can have anything but not everything.” I set a mission for myself a long time before bitcoin. And I feel, by investing in it, my focus will shift where I don’t want to.

Bitcoin is a bubble. That’s my opinion. Investing into the bubble without knowledge is dangerous. Its true, people will make a lot of money - but those are few - a lot more people will lose it. Especially because 99% of them seek the same thing as my gambling mind do, and that's to get rich quickly. The mindset like this will never invest in learning. Neither it has patience and more importantly nerves needed for that kind of investment. Ask yourself what's going to happen when all these people want their money back?

Currently, I don’t have enough knowledge to fight that bubble before it burst. I don’t want to invest my time into getting that knowledge because it’s gonna shift me from my current mission.

To conclude, I will tell you where do I invest my time.

  • Knowledge - each day I am learning things that will bring me closer to my goals. One of these is to learn more about blockchain technology. I think it’s excellent and revolutionary technology. It’s gonna change the world, and I want to be part of it.
  • Saving money - to invest in things I already know. It might not bring me high returns, but I am sure they will return.
  • Focusing on my core mission - I will become expert & influencer in marketing, e-commerce world. They say you need ten years to get there so for me is worth to invest two years more.

When my first business collapsed, one thing that did stay was me and my knowledge. Nobody was able to take it away from me. With its help, I've built the path to the place where I am today.

If you’re looking for an investment with the most promised returns, look into a mirror.

While traveling, I am a bag of mixed emotions. I can be tired and cranky, but excited and full of energy at the same time. Now that I am traveling with my family, I have to take care that I don’t behave like a child. So, if I am hot, thirsty and tired, I cannot grumble out loud, because it will multiply in reactions of my family members. When my son is squeaking on a back seat that he is hot, which in our case means that he is sick and he can throw out soon, I have to take a couple of deep inhales, so I don’t allow negative energy to overwhelm me and the whole family as well. It doesn’t always help, that’s why is even more important to discover corners of the world where it’s so beautiful, that all your efforts are repaid.
