Section 1

Understand the rulebook

The first step to becoming unshakeable is to know the rules that govern the financial world. There are really just four rules you need to know and obey:

Rule 1   Know that winter is coming; and plan accordingly

Pretty much every investor knows instinctively that compound interest is the most powerful engine of wealth generation which has ever been invented. The longer you let your investments compound, the better. Compound interest can take modest amounts of capital and turn them into massive fortunes given enough time, which is why it's always better to start investing when you are young.

It's hard – almost impossible in fact – for a person to earn their way to financial freedom because living expenses have a way of increasing the more you make. The real route to riches and financial security has always been to set aside a portion of what you earn and to invest it so that it compounds over many years. That's the only way you will become wealthy while you sleep and get into a position where money becomes your slave.

Once you start investing, the stock market should loom large as the all-time best vehicle for compounding your money long-term. As you begin to invest in the stock market, keep these facts in mind:

1On average, there will be a market correction (10% decline) about once a year.

2About one in five of those stock market corrections will end up being bear markets (where the values of stocks will fall by 20% or more).

3Nobody can predict whether the market will rise or fall in the immediate next few days or months.

4The stock market always rises over long periods of time despite numerous short-term setbacks.

5Based on historical track records, bear markets have always happened every three to five years. On average, they last about a year.

6Every single bear market in US history has always been followed by a bull market, without exception.

7The greatest danger to your future financial freedom is for you to be out of the market because you fear market turmoil. You can't win by trying to miss out on bear markets. You have to stay in the game to win.

Rule 1 is that market corrections, bear markets and recoveries are going to be happening all the time. These should not be a reason to sit on the sidelines waiting for tranquillity because that will never come. Instead, you need to be in the game so you have the power to utilize those market movements to your own advantage.

Invest your money in the stick market so you can take full advantage of history's best compounding vehicle bar none. Don't get scared off by the market fluctuations but stay the course. You know winter is coming so plan accordingly and be prepared to stay in the game.

Key Thoughts

"The key to making money in equities is not to get scared out of them." –Peter Lynch, fund manager, Fidelity Investments

"Sitting on the sidelines even for short periods of time may be the costliest mistake of all." –Tony Robbins

Rule 2   Watch out for Wall Street's hidden fees and half-truths

The majority of the financial professionals who work on Wall Street are genuine and hard working but the undeniable fact is Wall Street exists first and foremost to make money for itself, not for investors. It is full of corporations looking to maximize profits for their shareholders – that's their employee's focus and they get rewarded handsomely for doing that.
