The best investment you can ever make is an investment in yourself
I believe that the best investment you can ever make is an investment in yourself.
If you realize that you’re the #1 asset in anything you do, then you will begin to prioritize investment in yourself.
And this is why.
If you’re employed, you were for a reason — for the special skill you possess. So you must keep investing in yourself to stay on top of your game if you want to keep getting promoted and keep getting higher bonuses.
If you own a business, you are the business. You make all the critical decisions. You hire the best people. You are the top sales and marketing guru in your business. So, if you want to keep generating higher and higher income, you have to stay on top of your business by investing in yourself.
If you don’t invest in yourself, no one will.
You invest in yourself by:
Learning and growing in your knowledge in critical areas.
Learning how to learn.
Hiring coaches and mentors to collapse time and avoid costly mistakes.
Growing in your spirituality.
Mastering the mindset of successful people.
Mastering how to effectively build relationships and how to work with people.
Learning how to build communities and how to build a movement.
It is suggested that you invest at least 10% of your gross earnings in yourself. Often times, if done correctly, this investment will yield rewards that are multiple times what you invested.
That is the power of investing in yourself.
