“You are your most precious asset.
You are your most precious thing in your world.
You must invest in yourself every day.
Never be cheap on yourself.
You are worth it.
Everything you are and everything you will be
is the result of how you use your mind.”
– Brian Tracy
Last week, I announced the launch of a BIG Life Mastermind Program. The program is quite expansive and was open to 10 high-performing career women who want to learn how to Live a BIG Life, in spite of life and all its challenges. It is an intense 12 month program with lots of great learning. And webinar attendees were very excited until I announced the price which actually was an amazing value for everything I will be giving to the group—through my 42 years of experience, being a mentor and coach, plus materials for the program and 90-minute live sessions for 12 months.
I anticipated there would be people who would say, “That cost is out of my reach.” Or, “My employer will never pay for that.” Or, “I can’t afford that on my own.” I understand and I want to open every person’s eyes to the importance of investing in yourself. So here is an excerpt from our 3-year Amazon best-seller book, Who Took My Pen…Again?
The chapter is called: Invest (in yourself).
When we think of “investment” we automatically think of dollar signs. Don’t limit yourself to such a small portion of what investing in you means. To invest in you means to believe in you. To pick up a book on a subject you want to learn more about, taking a class at the gym, volunteer at your local soup kitchen – you discover more about yourself by taking the time to step back from routine living to do these types of things; such as to set a goal and attain it.
In current times of uncertainty, people have more than ever before trended toward the entrepreneurial mindset, but in fact we always need to be seeking ways to grow ourselves, whether in a recession or not. We should always act upon what it is we believe in at all times!
You should know yourself in order to invest in yourself. What can you invest in? Invest in your beliefs; invest your time; invest your attention; invest your finances. Here is a critical way that you can add value every day: Stop waiting for life to happen, you must be the one to make it happen for you.
