Everyday, you invest your time, energy, and money out in the world with the expectation that you will get something in return. When this expectation is not met, you feel cheated or wronged. There’s one investment however that won’t let you down. You see, once you make this type of investment, there is no reliance on another person, system, or institution to hold up their end of the bargain.
The most important thing you can do is invest in yourself.
Your most challenging and most valuable assignment in life is yourself. How well you direct your actions, invest in your relationships, and spend your time makes all the difference. At this point you and I are probably in agreement you are a pretty important person, deserving of some love and attention.
But where to start ?
It’s not as if taking out a 20$ bill, holding it in your left hand, and transferring it to your right is going to get you much. No, a self-investment requires a deeper and ultimately more rewarding transaction. A self-investment requires looking yourself in the mirror, reaffirming your values and priorities, and choosing to spend your time building habits and connections that best align with your dreams.
List out your priorities, things like your health, your passions, your relationships, your goals, etc. For each one write why it’s important, and an easy action you can take every day to begin actualizing today.
