Why do people invest?

Investing can be defined as
the act of committing money (or capital) to an endeavour with the expectation of obtaining an additional income or profit.

In layman word,
I invest so i don't spend it today, i stand to get more to spend in future.

There are people who invest to seek an income stream in order to replace active income, or to supplement their primary source of income. Many retired people live off the income from their investments, for example, dividends from shares and rent from property.
