We’re all taught that we should invest in life. You may be investing in the stock market, a 401k, maybe even real estate… Or maybe you’re just trying to live at this point and just can’t figure out how to even get access to investments at this point… I’ve been there…
What’s the ONE asset that consistently gives greater returns and is a relatively cheap investment to make?
My mantra in life is to invest in myself above anything else. Even when I was living paycheck to paycheck, before I invested to buy a house, or buy stocks, or start a company, I always prioritized investing in things that I knew would make ME better.
I invested in myself because EVERY SINGLE DAY, I wanted to become a better version of myself. If you think of yourself as an investment asset, much like you’d think of the stock market, or your 401k, or your house…
This is an asset that will be working for you your entire life. This is an asset that you have complete control over and you already own.
Over the years, I’ve narrowed it down to THREE consistent ways I always invest in myself first:
- INVEST in Books, the average CEO reads 60 books a year, best and cheapest
- INVEST IN Courses & Conferences, GO LEARN SOMETHING AND MEET OTHER PEOPLE THAT ARE DOING THE SAME THING > Net worth, network
- INVEST in Clothes, not a LOT of clothes, but a few clothes that are made with great materials and style… almost like a uniform
They say there are two kinds of people in this world.
People who have a growth mindset.
…and people who have a fixed mindset.
People with growth mindsets believe that they can change who they are and become a better version of themselves.
People with fixed mindsets point at their past failures, their perceived limitations, and put themselves into the confines of a box and limit themselves.
Growth mindset people are unstoppable.
Fixed mindset people stopped years ago.
The question becomes… how do you adopt a growth mindset?
How do you stop limiting yourself and your unlimited potential?
How do you get out of your own head and go achieve the things beyond your wildest dreams?
It’s simple. You invest in YOURSELF.
Good investments are the ones where you put in $1 and you get back $2.
Great investments are the ones where you get 10x or even 1000x returns.
In my life, I’ve consistently prioritized investing in myself. I’ve found that investing in yourself is the #1 way to get yourself to shift to a growth mindset, and achieve the things you want to achieve.
