Yep, even before the stock market 😉
Maybe you have seen that advice a lot, and it just sounds like something people say because they want you to buy their product 😂😂😂 (And P.S. I’m not selling you anything, but an idea, in this post 😆)
BUT if it has lost all meaning to you, let’s remember WHY it’s TRUE.
I invest in myself heavily and often, spending thousands of dollars each year and I’m currently in an intensive mentorship with 2 badass coaches and they posed the question, “WHY should you invest in yourself?” 🤑
WHY we do anything reveals so much, yet we often skip over this step. ✨
Here’s what came to mind when I thought about why it’s CRITICAL to invest in myself. (Not a humblebrag, just an example to get you thinking about why YOU should invest in YOURSELF!)
“I’m an incredible investment because I am my most important asset.
Others can cheer me on and be by my side, but ultimately it’s ME who is ALWAYS with me.
It’s ME who has to keep running the race and cross the finish line– no one else and nothing else can do that for me. (I may have stolen this analogy from Rachel Hollis?)
It doesn’t matter what kind of gear I have or what support I have- while those things are nice, it’s still me, doing the damn thing.
I must have the clarity, purpose, and mental toughness to make it through all the challenges as they come.
I have to BELIEVE my dream life is possible and keep the faith, even when there’s a heap of “evidence” and excuses for why it isn’t.
I must do the work to know EXACTLY what my goals are and DECIDE that they are mine.
I am the only one who can decide that I’ll never give up.”
Another excellent twist to take this a step further is to think about WHY you’re an excellent investment for your customers/clients. 🤩
“I’m an incredible investment for others because I lead by example, so I’m an amazing investment for them, for all of the same reasons why I’m an incredible investment for me.
I help them go further faster.
They can learn from my mistakes instead of having to make them all themselves.
I show them a new perspective that they aren’t able to see for themselves.
I encourage them and support them in a meaningful way.
I genuinely care about their success and will do anything I can to help them achieve their big dreams!
I help them with strategy AND mindset to enjoy the journey and do the damn thang alongside me!”
