Why it’s Important to Invest in Yourself?

The most priceless investment in your life is you. Many would say their retirement account or their children. Both are high on the list but without investing in yourself you are really not helping the other two for the better.

You are the most important when it comes to putting your health first and then toward what you love to do that yields money.  However, for many they place themselves last on the list when it comes to investing time, money, and resources.  When other people’s priorities come up or it’s time to sacrifice something, you might be the first to bend. Please make a note and put this on your refrigerator.  Investing in your self is not selfish. In fact, by helping make your life better, you will by default make the lives better of everyone else around you. It is the best way to ensure that you are well-taken care in the future, too.

So why is investing in yourself so important? Think about it, besides being the person you have to spend the most time with, you are also the best example of seeing an immediate return on investment. When you put your wellness first, you over time you have more energy to increase production at work increase thus yielding more revenue. You are able to add more value to others as you invested first in yourself. Unlike other investments out there, investing in your self is never a risk, because it always pays off. Even when you make bad investments it is not really a bad thing when you have learned something from it. Failure is part of success as when you learn something from it and apply corrective action; the results you desired manifest it. You gain confidence to come out of your comfort zone often to see sustainable success.

What are some steps you can take to invest in yourself?

1. Invest in skills that enhance your strengths. 

Your education in yourself is ongoing. Take advantage of various resources and mastermind groups that will develop your skills in areas of strengths.

2. Invest in your health. 

Usually exercise and proper eating is the first thing to go when other priorities pop up. But that makes investing in your health all the more important. And being healthy is the best way to insure your other investments in life (like taking care of your family and being productive at work) keep up. Investing in your health can be as simple as a having a healthy breakfast each morning. It could mean taking walks after dinner or signing up for that personal trainer that you’ve always wanted. Do something daily to invest in your health and you’ll be sure to reap wonderful returns.

3. Invest in your future by being present now daily. 

Having clarity and being laser focused being in the moment is instrumental to making key decisions for investments that will pay off in the future.  Being present prevents you from making bad decisions stemming from negative emotions.

To your health & prosperity,
