that's a good reply I say, as I wanted to hear something like that BUT let me explain my situation a little more-- if I stop reinvesting whatever I make, I am scared to go towards a failure OR I guess I am getting success with my new investments and it might be pushing me to think that if I stop reinvesting I will be not earning what I can with extra investment ultimately making it a loss.
to explain further, recently I started selling Product XYZ. In start I bought only 150 pc of it. I got good response and I started buying more and more regularly. Recently, I ran a full lot of the same container. Which is a seriously huge investment itself. Besides, I paid out $60000 debt I had of a company in starting days of my business. You see you cannot find your line of success from day one. same happened to me, i evolved with the time towards perfection. Now I know what I can buy and sell. In start I made some bad decisions. I still have some items from starting days in my warehouse. So imagine from where I paid the debt. I have opened a new branch as well. which is doing great for a started. Now I need more money for branding of my products. If I stop to buy this HUGE investment item then I think i will destroy my all efforts of the past three years by creating a momentum and then stepping back. If I do not stop it then of course I need more investment. Similar is advertising. I have to start advertising my brands to get bigger market share...
Now the big confusion is that if I keep expanding business and setting new goals, I will remain as I am now. As on every new turn I find a new successful line and then I need money to follow it. If I stop doing that, I might collapse because of stopping my growth rate. This fear of failure is a nightmare, I have worked my butts off in these last three years :)
