Are you satisfied where you are in life? Do you feel fulfilled? Are you reaching your life’s potential? We’ve all heard the term “Invest In Yourself.” Investing in oneself especially right now is so necessary! Being your best self is powerful! It can change your circumstances and open doors you didn’t expect. There are so many things you could be doing right now to be a better, more motivated and happier you.
Like what you may ask? Well, do you have set goals? I don’t mean big goals. Like by the end of the year you want to lose 60 pounds type goals. That’s possible but not specific enough. Instead set more realistic goals. I mean small achievable goals that you can accomplish regularly. Instead have a weekly weight loss goal. 3-5 pounds is something you can strive for. If you lose more, than great! But this will build you up and give you something to look forward to. And ensure you write down your goals or type them in a note in your phone. That way it’s quick reference and always with you. We take our phones everywhere. I even have a monthly bill note in my phone. That way I never forget what has been paid, what needs to be paid and when for each month. As well, put dates by your goals. It will hold you accountable. But know from the start that these dates may change. Be okay with that from day one. It’s more important how you are working towards accomplishing said goal. Keep pushing!
Another way to invest in yourself is to create wealth. So many people want to be rich but that can be short term money. Not a long term goal. You want to create generational wealth. Something you can pass down to your children or grandchildren. We tend to live in the now. In the moment. Please stop living beyond your means. We have to buy smartly, invest smartly and save some of our income smartly. If you can, own something. Become an entrepreneur on the side. Even if you have a full time job. It will be yours. Put as much into it and generate as much additional income as you see fit. Then save that additional income. Don’t even think of it as additional income. Just put it away in an untouchable account. So many people don’t even have retirement to look forward to right now. Believe me, your future self will thank you!
Plus there are so many additional income opportunities out there waiting for you. Are you good at writing? Become a resume writer, virtual assistant or a freelance writer. Or are you tech savvy or creative? Become a social media manager for well known companies or even small businesses to get them out there. You could launch an online resource website or sell products through companies like Amazon or Esty. Are you a people person, like to interact and share? Create a blog or a podcast with advertising. You could also invest in real estate. Or like so many people, work for service companies that are taking care of our population who want home deliveries of any and everything right now.
The possibilities are unlimited. You just have to make self-love a priority! You Got This!
