We are currently celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi, a celebration that unites people from all walks of life. The god of prosperity and wealth is said to be Lord Ganesha who is one of the many powerful Hindu gods. Lord Ganesha is believed to bring good luck and thus he is worshipped before anything new is started. On this occasion let’s learn a few investing qualities from lord Ganesha.
- Big head: – Keep an open mind and explore all investment opportunities. Avoid going along with the crowd. Consider and evaluate your needs and goals, then invest in accordance.
- Small eyes: – The key is to stay focused. Narrowing your eyes helps you focus clearly on your goal. Set a clear goal when planning your finances, and then take the necessary steps to achieve it.
- Big ears: – to learn and to grasp. Have you ever noticed that people who are eager to learn usually pay close attention to every detail and listen very carefully? Because that’s how they learn. Even listening to information can help you learn. Gather information about investment options, and always take your financial advisor’s views.
- Trunk: – The powerful, curved trunk of Lord Ganesha stands for adaptability and flexibility. One should not be bound to a single investment plan, but rather should be open to trying alternative options and, if one finds a good option, adapting to it.
- Big round belly: – Ganesha’s stomach represents an easily digestible appetite, which can also be viewed as a risk appetite. There will always be some risk involved in investing, but as always, those who are prepared to accept the risk will benefit in the long run. Also, this risk has to be a calculated risk.
- Broken tusk: – The significance of Lord Ganesha’s broken tusk is tremendous. It is an example of out-of-the-box thinking. Consider a unique, innovative approach rather than following with the crowd and making decisions commonly.
- Mouse as the vehicle (vahana):- Even though Lord Ganesha is strong and powerful, he prefers Mushaka the humble mouse, as his vehicle. Likewise, investors must keep expectations humble and not expect very aggressive returns.
- Riddhi and Siddhi: – Riddhi signifies prosperity while Siddhi signifies accomplishment. Both Riddhi and Siddhi are depicted seated on both sides of Lord Ganesha. Similar to this, let’s make sure we have prosperity in our financial lives and an accomplished portfolio.
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!
