Many of us know that it’s the best way for us to achieve our financial goals, but yet we still put off making our first investment.

A major reason we put off investing is because we’re "afraid of losing money."

This is known as "loss aversion", a cognitive bias in which we tend to prefer avoiding losses, even if it will give substantial profits in the future.
