“The most important investment you can make is in yourself. Very few people get anything like their potential horsepower translated into the actual horsepower of their output in life. Potential exceeds realization for many people…The best asset is your own self. You can become to an enormous degree the person you want to be.”
People are always talking about investing in shares or houses or internet marketing etc but in reality the REAL investment is in you. If you spend $100,000 in shares today, it will be worth around $400,000 in 10 years time going by the rate if increase over the last 10 years. That’s not bad. In fact it’s pretty good! But, if you had spent $100,000 on training yourself to be more successful in internet marketing, or in property development, or in your own self belief, then you could be earning that sort of income every month!
Now I don’t know about you, but it makes sense to me to get the most out of $100,000 and not waste it. If I can turn that 100k into 4.8 million per year instead of 400k after 10 years, then I reckon that 100k is a small price to pay, wouldn’t you agree?
Most of us tend to go through life thinking that if we can just get enough to live on and a little left over to play with then we have done well. But is that really all we want from life? I’ve found that despite people saying that they are comfortable with where they are they’re in fact very unsatisfied. If they were truly happy, why do they continue to buy lotto and lottery tickets? It’s because that they really do want more from life BUT they have given up on themselves being able to do it themselves. They think that they can win 30 million but that they can’t earn it.
Well of course you can’t earn 30 million dollars with your current level of input into your life. But what if you spent the money and learnt a whole new mindset, a whole new way to do something that will earn you a packet of money every year? Did you know that almost ALL winners of lotto and lotteries are broke within a few short years? That includes the huge winners as well. I’ll tell you right now that those who invested in themselves to learn a new skill and a new mindset instead of lotto are not broke and are in fact earning big incomes and contributing big dollars to their communities and societies.
If you really want to have a fulfilling life and a life that leaves a legacy behind you after you’ve gone, then investing in your self is the best way to go about it. But how does one do this?
Well my suggestions are:
1/ Get a vision for where you want to be
2/ Find a mentor who is aligned with your core values
3/ Attend as many seminars as you can on personal development
4/ Take the time to really see what it is that you need to know now
5/ Start to give yourself positive affirmations DAILY
6/ Find a group of people who are in a similar mindset and become accountable to them for your growth.
.These are just starting points. Get a mentor, a master mind group and see where you need to go. What you will discover is that there is more to you than you EVER thought possible. You’ll discover that there are no limits except those that you place on yourself and finally that your ability to earn, to contribute, is far beyond what you ever previously thought possible.
