Let me start this blog of by saying, if you’re reading this for investment advice, this is not for you. I’ll tell you why. I believe the best investment in business you’ll ever make is on YOU. Yes, YOU!
I have seen tens of thousands of entrepreneurs walk into my programs and one do the biggest mistake many make is what I call ‘the I know it all syndrome’.
Even some of the biggest success stories in this world from pro athletes to successful businesspeople say they are still learning everyday. This is what makes greatness.
An investment in yourself is the only investment that will change your tomorrow, hence this actually being the hardest investment for anyone to make. We put ourselves at risk by investing in us.
Ask anyone around you “Have you ever bought a car?” and the response you will for sure get is “Yes, I have”. Think about it, we are quicker in investing in something like a car that actually holds no value overtime than investing in ourselves, which is the asset that creates the money to buy the car or 50 cars ones day.
It’s pretty silly when we think about it right?
The best investment in business is investing in YOU. Period! Full stop!
I wanted to talk about this in a blog so you finish reading this knowing that nothing will change your tomorrow but YOU. And nothing will change you than an investment in you.
Let me give you a real life example from my life when I was running my high net worth consulting business.
One of my mentors told me about this Membership Club. So exclusive you couldn’t even apply to be in it unless you knew someone and then it would have cost you $130,000 per year to be a member. Seems high right?
My mentor said to me “I will get you in, but I need you to make that investment in yourself and pay the $130,000 a year fee because if you want to play in the high net worth game, this is the place to hang out”
Now at that time in my 20’s that was some serious money, but after some serious thought, I give into his mentorship and joined. Within 6 months I had doubled my investment just hanging around this members club.
Of course in the beginning this was a push for me and I struggled writing that $130,000 cheque. However, today I have become a lot smarter and I pay up to $100,000 for just one day of coaching from my coaches.
I know that there is no other asset than me in my business and the best investment in business is only me.
So next time you think about where you are putting your money and are you investing in yourself because after reading this I hope you realise the asset in life is YOU.
Now I want to hear from you. Where have you invested in yourself? Comment below and let me know.
