The best investment you can make in your life is yourself, period.
As the holiday season approaches and we acquire new toys, don’t forget what is truly important.
‘Things’ may give you some pleasure, become utilities or tools but they will not help you grow.
‘Things’ may even hold you back – physically, emotionally or perhaps even by keeping you tied to the system (through debt, finance, etc).
In the sales this year, rather than acquiring more ‘stuff’ here is a thought…
In 2017, what will be the sole reason for your success, happiness & progression?
Invest in yourself, in whatever form that may take.
New books, education, courses, experiences, travel…
Whatever an investment in yourself means to you.
Focus on function & long term value, rather than short term pleasure.
Perhaps you’ll miss the discharge of serotonin when you go to the checkouts, but we all know it’s short lived.
It doesn’t matter what stage of life you’re at – an investment in yourself will always have the highest return.
Beyond financial resources, also reflect on what you want to achieve in 2017. If you haven’t already got a strategy for 2017, read my earlier post on how to create one here.
How are you going to invest your most precious resource? Time.
