Because if you’re not investing in something, you’ll never reach your goals.
“I can’t invest because I don’t have any money.”
There is much more to life than money. What about your time? Time is something we all have and it is undeniably the most unbiased universal entity of them all.
Invest time in exploring yourself and finding your passion. Know your passion already?
Invest time in experimenting or developing the skill sets your passion requires to a greater level. Think you’re the best at what you do?
Change your attitude. If you think you know it all, then your roller coaster ride is coming down hill, falling or fallen off the tracks, or stuck and cannot leave the loading station.
If you’re not growing, you’re dying. Growth comes from learning and being accepting of all new knowledge. The most successful people are life long learners. If you’re working with someone, and they are skilled in something that you are not, just ask them, “can you show me how to do that?”
Not, “can you show me that some time,” or “can you show me that later,” you want to learn now! The present is all we have and it is truly a gift if you know how to capitalize on every opportunity that comes your way.
If you are highly skilled and experienced and you’re at the point of your life where your continuing education is minimal but still something you participate in, have you invested your knowledge and time into others? Have you given any thought of volunteering or participating in some form of charity to give back to others who want to earnestly be in the same position are you in right now?
Investing isn’t always about material assets.
The best investments that we’ve either received, acquired or given out to others are immaterial.
