“You cannot receive a positive return on yourself, you have to invest in yourself first.” -Michael J. Fite
Keep this in mind whenever you find yourself wondering why you are not seeing the results you seek in your life. If you are willing to take the time to invest into yourself, you will find that what you put into yourself can manifest itself into something greater than you can imagine. When you choose not to invest in yourself, you will find yourself still in the same position as you were before in your life.
How do you invest in yourself? There are many ways you can do so, but I will touch on a few common ways. If you have more ways, feel free to add in the comments section and share on your site so that this investment of thoughts can grow.
- Money is perhaps the #1 way people choose to invest in themselves. The more you are willing to spend on yourself to enhance your life, the more likely you are to gain self-confidence about your life situation because you will start to see people and things change around you for better.
- Time is another way people choose to invest in themselves. When you take the necessary time to focus on thinking and doing things to make yourself better, you will see how much more you can accomplish in your life over time.
- Education is another way people choose to invest in themselves. Whether it is through formal means, conversation, or reading posts like mine and others who speak of ways of improve your life, you will gain the knowledge and wisdom to make the appropriate changes to your life.
I consider all three important when it comes to my family. In order for me to get the right investment in return, I am willing to purchase things that will make my family better, take the time to listen and enjoy their company, and constantly learning from them and other families as to how to be a better husband and father. I may not be able to spend the most money, have the most time in the world, or even have all the answers, but I give them my best when it comes to all three. The result has allowed for me to have a happy family who are very close to each other.
Keep in mind that even though you may not have the same amount of time, money, or resources to available for investing in yourself, you can make the most out of what you do have. Do not get caught up over the fact that someone else may have more to invest than you do, what counts is that you take what you do have available and use it to where it can manifest itself into future opportunities down the road to get more of what you want and need out of life. Lets remember that if you want to more out of your life, you got to invest what you have into everything that you do to see the results you crave.
How much will you invest in yourself?
