“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin
When you think of "investment" we automatically think of dollar signs. Don't limit yourself to such a small portion of of what investing means. To invest means to believe in you. To pick up a book on a subject you want to learn more about, take a class at the gym, volunteer at your local soup kitchen - you discover more about yourself by taking the time to step back from routing living to do these types of things, such as to set a goal and attain it.
We hope you enjoy today's chapter excerpt!
Invest (in yourself)
Be a Perpetual Student
If your manager or organization does not choose to invest in you, that doesn’t mean you are not worth the investment. You of all people should know that the most. Choose to better yourself.
“Learn how to maximize the enormous potential that lies in your mind and body. This includes learning how to set goals, manage your time, remove fear and doubt, adjust your thinking, create new habits, squash bad habits, how to take care of your health and focus.” – BrianKim.net
You will only get out of work (and life!) what you put into it. Become a student of life, and seek to gain as much wisdom, learning and experience as you can. Don’t rest on your laurels! Yes, yesterday’s success was great, but you cannot rest there forever. We were made for growth, work, and achievement. Fresh experiences and learning keeps us vibrant, healthy, and challenged.
Wishing you all the best and looking forward to hearing the ways that you have invested in yourself.
How have you invested in yourself, personally or in your career?
