Awareness is the key to everything! When you are aware of things you can change them, adapt them, or intentionally continue them. When you invest in yourself you are intentionally doing things that will be good for you. You may not realize it, but you already are investing in yourself! By listening or reading the show notes to this podcasts you are investing in yourself. Even more so if you implement some of the different things that we discuss. Know that you are worthy to invest in you and to grow. No matter where you are on your journey, we can all invest in ourselves and grow.
There are a variety of things you can invest, here are 3 general categories. You can invest your time. Right now, you are reading the show notes of my podcast. By doing this you are investing your time into learning new things that will improve your life. You can invest your energy. Everything is energy, the thoughts you think, the things you do, everything!!! The final thing you can invest is your money. When we think of investing our minds almost instantly go to money. When I first started this business, I invested a lot of time and energy into it, without investing a lot money. I listened to countless podcasts, I read books and articles, I did everything I could to learn how to build a business and how to implement what I’d learned. However, not all of it worked, things that clicked for others didn’t always click for me. I was confused and frustrated, I didn’t know what to do and I was exhausted trying to figure it out. Eventually I realized that I needed to put in some money. I hired a coach to help me line things up. Once I did that my business skyrocketed.
What you can invest will depend on where you are in your journey. When I first started my business, I didn’t have the means to put in the money required for it. I got there eventually, but it took some time. Where are you in your journey? Can you invest time, energy, money, or a combination of the three? We only have so much time, energy, and money. Determine what you can “spend”. And no matter what you pick, it’s ok. Pick the one that serves you and fits you the best and the one that you are willing to invest and find out what you want to accomplish.
When you invest in yourself you feel a sense of purpose. How many times do we go through life and just feel like we’re wandering with things happening to us instead of for us? Investing in your life will help you find your purpose. You can do more of what you love when you invest in yourself. You’ll be more confident in what you can do! It will even lower your stress level. When I invest in myself, I learn and grow and my stress decreases. There are so many other benefits, I encourage you to find the right way to invest in yourself.
One way to invest in yourself is exercise, this will improve your health. Eating healthy will do the same! You can set goals and accomplish those goals; you could strengthen a skill that you have. If you like playing piano and you want to get better at it, you can invest in improving that talent. Maybe you have a bad habit that you would like to get rid of, you can invest in breaking that habit. You could invest in yourself by attending different events or taking courses. See what aligns with you and go in that direction.
You are amazing and enough just the way you are, but it is always nice to change and grow. Why stay stagnant when you can grow and become wiser? I would love to hear what you think about Invest in You! Send me a message on social media @Jonesinfor or send me an email at [email protected]
