You Are Worth It - Invest
The best investment you can make is in yourself.
It doesn't matter if it is a seminar or a day at the spa, investing
in you always pays off. If we don't take care of mind, body
and spirit, we will end up burnt out and stressed. Even mini
breaks such as a walk in the park or a nap help refresh and
rejuvenate. Investing in yourself is about caring enough to
put yourself and your well being first.
When we think of investing, we might think of
putting money in the bank. Just as money in the bank will yield
a return, so will investing in you. Just as compound interest
will exponentially increase your savings, such is the compound
interest in life. Investing in ourselves provides a strong foundation
for which to build our life and will continually provide support
we can build on. Unlike a bank that will provide an overdraft
if we come up short, the bank of life does not provide such
a service. If we have not built up a reserve, we will find ourselves
in a jam. When you have been investing in yourself, you'll be
able to make a withdrawal from the bank of life and still have
a reserve to draw on.
There are many ways to invest in you. Things such
- Taking enough time off to be refreshed and creative
- Improving life and business skills such as earning a degree
or taking adult education classes that teach you something
new and tap into your creativity
- Cultivating friendships
- Spending time with family and loved ones
- Exercising to maintain a healthy mind and body
Too many people think they can get away with not
investing in themselves. They either neglect it all together
or think investing in themselves in a selfish thing to do. The
truth is that if one continues to neglect herself or himself
and does not make daily investments they will wake up one day
- a lack of necessary business and life skills
- serious heath issues
- relationships that are in shambles
- burn out
Recent illness in my family has brought home the
reality that our health is the most valuable thing we can have.
If we don't have that, everything becomes a challenge. Although
we cannot prevent all illnesses, we don't have to help it along.
Reducing stress, feeding our minds and bodies with rich substances
and nurturing our souls can make a huge difference. Caring for
you is a gift that gives back for a lifetime.
