Most of the time, investing is a good idea. You could invest in real estate, stocks, mutual funds, you name it. However, you cannot forget to invest in yourself! Most people settle and stop investing in their-selves early on in life in which separate the ones working for nothing and the ones working for their new house worth millions! With the fact that most people settle and simply give up early in their 20’s, it’s really not that difficult to get ahead of the game and be a leader in any industry or walk of life. With that be said, we will get the ball rolling with digging a little deeper into the dreadfully common art of settling.
1. Get Ahead of The Game – Start with increasing your education. Our brains are powerful tools in which can hold a bunch of information, you’re simply limiting yourself by not filling it up. Take a pottery class or go online and take an educational course on personal finance or budgeting and anything. Don’t just settle for mediocrity! The only people in this world that will attempt to steer you away from investing in yourself, are broke people!
2. Become A Leader – If you talk better, know more, perform better, and all that goodness then it’s practically impossible to not become a leader in whatever industry you are involved in. If you’re a nurse for example and are able to answer questions only a doctor could, my only logical assumption is that you will be seeing a raise in your income before any other nurse in the hospital you work at. It just makes sense! My knowledge over computers and marketing a few years ago was slim but after taking a determined mature effort to expand greatly in both realms, have become a leader in both industries.
3. Confidence – The power of confidence is truly remarkable. For example, I used to fear math, even basic equations! I took the time and invested in my mathematical education and self-taught myself through online avenues through Calculus. This does not mean I now love math or am an expert mathematician able to solve linear inequalities on the fly. However, when I see an equation I am no longer terrified by the numbers. I’m highly confident in my mathematical ability to know if I work on it long enough and stay focused and relaxed, I’m likely going to discover the correct answer. The power of confidence is taking and task and understanding that you are able to handle it, no matter of difficult or challenging it may be.
If you go through the top three reasons why you should invest in yourself, you’ll quickly realize that they are also steps to take. Consistently increase your education and start making waves in your industry. Then, become a leader in whatever industry you are in which will pretty much take care of itself per cause and effect of increasing your overall knowledge. Finally, harness the power of confidence and use it to your advantage to continue the process!
