How To Invest In Yourself
I believe you are your best asset. Why? Because until you realize that, you will always be someone else’s best asset. You will spend 40 hours per week serving the 40-year-to-life sentence trading away your time for someone else’s dream while you live in mediocrity. You weren’t created for that and if that’s the life you’ve been trapped in, I believe it’s a damn shame. Until you begin investing in yourself, you will be stuck there. But what does that mean? I’m glad you asked! I will break it down for you!
1. Invest in books. This is the best place to start! The first personal development book I read was called Today Matters by John Maxwell. It took me almost a year to finish it and it wasn’t a long book. I believe the reason why is two reasons. For one, it was borrowed; I did not pay for it and therefore it had no value! Second, I did not have other books lined up to read afterwards. The reason I finish a book is so I can start the next one. You need lots of books (a dozen at once at LEAST) so that you’re motivated and excited to finish the one you’re on and start the next one.
2. Take classes. Find classes on personal development, business, money, and wealth. This accomplishes two things. It will increase your knowledge and it will also connect you with like minded people. Being willing to pay for these courses. You are your best investment. By paying for knowledge and access, you are investing in yourself. I host a course on money, wealth, and business every week at my office and stream it online. This is a good place to start!
3. Go to events. Find conferences and events where the people who write the books you’ve been reading will be hosting or speaking. This is the next big step. You will find people that you look up to at this point and you will benefit from meeting them and learning more from them. You will also find so many opportunities to sell, recruit, refer, partner, network, and grow with the people at the events. My personal favorite is the 10X Growth Conference. At the last one, there were 10,000 people. My company closed hundreds of thousands in sales that weekend just from being at that event and meeting people.
4. Buy Training. Buy access to qualified, quality, and exclusive training on the topics that matter to you. An example of this was when I invested in purchasing Cardone University. That was the most money at that point in time that I’d ever spent on myself. I justified it by keeping my eyes on my potential. However, you must have the discipline and behavior to finish these programs when you start them or it will amount to an unfinished goal and ultimately, you quitting.
5. Hire a coach. First, I must warn you, we live in an age where everyone thinks they are a coach because they take great Instagram photos and can create eye-catching YouTube videos. Hire a coach that has results. If you want money, find someone who can prove to you they have the kind of money you want and begin having them mentor you and coach you. A coach is someone who can call out your potential at a level you were not aware of. They push you harder than you can push yourself. They ask questions you hadn’t thought of. They force you to come up with your own answers. They don’t take your b.s. excuses. They introduce you to people who can take you to the next level. Anything less than that is not a coach.
These really are what I believe to be the 5 best ways to invest in yourself, in order. Do not go looking for other investments until you have $50,000 or more. The final thing I will add is that the measure of progress is an increase in your income. If you do these things properly, your income will increase. I believe you need to own your potential because you are your best investment. If you’d like to have me personally guide you through these steps click here and schedule a call with me.
