Spending vs investing…
One thing I have never had a problem with is investing in myself. I will invest heavily in myself because the return on investment is massive.
Over the past 3 years, I have invested well into 5 figures into my business, my personal development and my professional growth.
Now what I see in the world today is a whole lot of spending but not a lot of investing.
And I’m talking strictly about the investing in yourself.
If you are throwing down tons of money on things that will have absolutely no return on investment…
(You know those things you buy that get you excited for about 5 minutes until they are forgotten and sitting in your closet collecting dust bunnies for all eternity)
But complain and say you can’t afford to invest in something that is going to improve your health, your life, YOUR FUTURE!
Then you have got some priorities I would evaluate.
To continue to grow, evolve, move forward, you MUST invest in yourself.
Stop being ‘cheap’ with the things that are actually going to improve your quality of life!
Cuz lets be honest, that is just being cheap towards yourself.
AND YOU ARE THE MOST VALUABLE THING ON THIS EARTH!
Back to spending…
Now I’m not saying not to spend. If you want to spend your money on things with no real return on investment, do it! You have every right to purchase what you want. AND YOU SHOULD have everything you want!
The world is abundant, and it is your god given right to abundance.
But stop for a second and really reflect on this. Do you have absolutely no issue spending money on another pair of shoes, another purse or whatever thing you may already have 10 of… But then find it sooooo hard to justify investing money into something that is going to improve your life 100 fold?
If this is the case, I want you to seriously re-evaluate your priorities!
I personally just don’t get it! And I’m pretty happy I don’t, because if I did understand that mentality, I wouldn’t be where I am today in my life and business.
You create your reality, YOU create your reality everyday by the thoughts you think and by the choices you make.
If you are unhappy with your life if you are unhappy with your career choice. Take a minute a look at your priorities and where you are investing your time and money.
The big & small Investments I have made over the years that have completely changed my life for the better…
Personal development events
These things have allowed me to grow as a person and continue to grow. I will never stop investing in myself because I constantly get reinforced with the benefits.
Investing in myself allows me to be a leader to others. It helps me to better help others. To contribute to the world and to live my life to the fullest.
Sure I like buying fancy clothes, I like spending money on my car, I like going to 5-star hotels, and I probably have at least 50 pairs of shoes. There is absolutely nothing wrong with these things. In fact, it’s important to allow yourself to enjoy the finer things in life. It allows the universe to bring you more of these things.
But YOU, your mind, your growth needs to become a priority. Because let me tell you… when those become your priority, and you invest time and money into these things… you will be repaid… In ways, you could never imagine… until you see for yourself!
You will go further
You will evolve
You will expand
You will experience
You will become everything you ever wanted.
Remember you create your reality!
Lots of love, Lisa
