YOUR BIGGEST INVESTMENT
What is most important to you? Put yet another way, what is your biggest investment?
If I asked most people, they would say their family, their children, their home, having a college fund or even their car. Of course, there is no right or wrong answer to this question. This is relative and subjective to each person.
I would argue the biggest investment you can make in life is getting to know yourself and investing in yourself. Become intimately familiar with what your good at, what you’re most passionate about, your likes/dislikes and what excites you. Everyone should ask themselves this question: “How much time do you spend daily, weekly or monthly strategically planning your life and perfecting your presentation and character?”
Matthew Kelly said it best,
“It constantly amazes me that men and women wander the earth marveling at the highest mountains, the deepest oceans, the whitest sands, the most exotic islands, the most intriguing birds of the air and fish of the sea- and all the time never stop to marvel at themselves and realize their infinite potential as human beings.”
When you need legal advice, you call an attorney. When you need help with your finances, you call a financial advisor. When you need help with your car, you call an auto mechanic. When you need some guidance to get your life straightened out, you call a therapist. When you are having marital issues, you call a marriage counselor. When you need help with your fitness and nutrition, you get a gym membership or hire a personal trainer. When you sell your house, you hire a realtor?
When you need help with your career, who do you call?
In today’s competitive job market, now more than ever it is important to work with a professional to give you an edge so you can stand out from the competition.
