The word “investment” is used in many ways. The word is even used where it doesn’t exactly belong. So why and how exactly should you invest in yourself? I’m going to explain 3 great reasons why you should start investing in yourself and provide you with a couple of ways to invest wisely in yourself and your future! In the end, hopefully, it will become clear how important it is to invest in yourself and start this investment today!
3 great reasons to invest in yourself
1. Confidence building – Investing in yourself will give you a huge confidence boost. Knowing that you are growing mentally or financially or in any other way is an amazing and rewarding feeling. This can lead to you being able to achieve personal goals, looking for new ways to improve financially or romantically or anything else, or even just advance in your current career. This also allows an open door for you to have more respect and love for yourself because you realize the fact that you committed to dealing with those things and you are going to.
2. Higher earnings – If you want to earn a lot of money, you will have to invest in yourself. Before someone is willing to invest in you, you must first invest in yourself. If you do this in an educational way, you will be able to achieve potential growth in almost any industry available. Education is something that you should never stop growing, learn as much as you can and observe how you reach a potential that you did not think possible. Have you ever wanted to be rich?
3. You are worth it – The main reason to invest in yourself is because you are worth it! I try to keep this message planted in the minds of my children because it is a very valuable lesson. You should never settle for being less than you can actually reach your potential. Each day should be a rewarding challenge to grow your potential to new heights. If you have the mindset that you are worth more than you have of the situation, you will see massive growth in everything you do. This reason to invest in yourself is without a doubt the most important.
2 great ways to invest in yourself
1. Educationally – There are all kinds of different ways that you can invest in yourself from an educational point of view and it is highly recommended that you do so. Your brain can hold a lot of information! Don’t be afraid of education, accept it and welcome it! Any seminars or workshops that you have been invited to or recently heard about and have not thought of at all, start thinking about them! I am not a real estate professional, I don’t even own a fully paid home right now. However, I have attended countless real estate seminars just because I love being informed! If I ever decide to pursue a career in real estate, I am ready.
2. Financially – I understand this will be tricky, especially if you have few funds available to get started. However, if you want to substantially increase your income level, investing in yourself financially is an absolute must! You can do this with stocks, real estate, a business, or anything else that earns you income. However, if you do this, you should be looking for ROI! Personally, I don’t take actions because I don’t see a good enough return on investment. Fortunately, there are many other ways to invest in yourself financially with a fantastic return on investment, such as real estate or direct selling.
A couple of final tips
1. make a 5-year plan – Have you ever done this during college or high school or maybe you even had to say this to a potential employer during an interview? Well, people do this for a reason. Writing things down in general makes it easier to retain the information and commit to doing what you wrote. So make your five-year plan and post it somewhere where you can see it on a daily basis! When stress overwhelms you, this plan will usually calm you down a bit and you can realize that you are exactly where you want to be in your strides to achieve your full potential and goals.
2. Roll the ball – I’m a great planner! I plan everything I do strategically. I plan exactly how I am going to make my coffee in the morning! Yes, it is that extreme, but I enjoy it! Planning is great, however, you must learn to act! I was one of those people who thought and planned everything but not long ago! I had to get the ball rolling and once I was done planning, I had to start executing my plan!
Investing in yourself and your future is very important if you want to achieve big goals or dreams. Ask anyone who has achieved great success at something and they will tell you how important it is and how much it has taken to get to where you are today. Don’t be afraid to put some money at stake for a potential reward later on. Just make sure your money goes to something that is rewarding and has a high return on investment!
