How To Invest In Yourself

How To Invest In Yourself

We invest in things to either make a lot of money or to create additional income to supplement the payment of our bills. In recent times it has become popular to have more ways in which to measure wealth. When I spoke to my broker one day about being in a place of putting in more money than I will take out, he referred to my withdrawals as investing in myself. We measure personal freedom, our lifestyles, rich life-experiences or even how many times we succeed in making risky decisions that end in big wins, to determine our wealth. To have a plan to invest in ourselves and to know how to value ourselves as ‘Priceless’ has gained a lot more focus by the average person, as a way to benchmark smarter goals. Before, this was only available to those who had reached the top of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Today, it is accessible to anyone. But just because it is made more accessible to you to learn from successful leaders who focus on self development, it does not mean that you  know how to invest in yourself.

In a practical world that revolves very much around money we ask these questions:

  1. Do you generate personal development invoices?
  2. How do you decide to invest in yourself?
  3. What amount do you write at the bottom of the invoice?
  4. Does it add up to more or less than 3% of your income?

    Another rewarding article – thank you! Your article has inspired me to start my “SELF INVESTMENT” Fund by depositing my first 3% for August (perfect timing with August being women’s month). To ensure I use my investment well, I have written different “self devotion” (as oppose to self development) ideas on colourful cards and will drop them into a jar, to pull out one monthly to pursue that “return on investment.” So in closure I challenge you and all your readers to be creative with making their “self devotion” jar and lets share our monthly rewards!
