If a healthy seed of a giant tree is planted in a flower-pot, the tree that will grow to be a miniature version of the giant tree. This miniature version is known as Bonsai.
It is not because of any fault in the seed, because there is no fault in the seed. It is only because the seed has been denied the real base to grow on.
In personal finance when you give your investments just a few years of “time” your base is like a small pot and the investment will mushroom into a bonsai.
But by providing the “investment” 10 to 15 years of “time”, you change the base from a pot to a field.
Now the investment gets the right kind of base to compound and create enormous wealth.
