Volatility is a normal part of long-term investing.
It’s important to take a step back during volatile times and keep an open mindset. Investors who get overly focused on current issues and let their fearful emotions guide them, have missed out on the long-term potential of the markets. There has always been a reason to flee in the short-term, that have proven only to be reasons not to build wealth in the long-term. By accepting short-term volatility, you can stay focused on long-term investment goals and take advantage of lower prices.
