Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in the world is famously known for his investing strategies.
During an annual meeting session in 2008 at Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett was asked about the best investment he ever made. And his reply was “The most important investment you can make is to yourself”. You are your only best asset. If you focus on investing in yourself, you can become one of the greatest people on the planet. So, what are the best ways you can invest in yourself?
1. Set Goals
Learn how to set personal goals for yourself. You need to know where you want to go and what you want to achieve. If you have not set goals yet, then it is like you are going through life blindly. It like a car with now driver to guide it and soon it will crash somewhere along the way. Stop wasting time and start setting SMART goals (SPECIFIC, MEASURABLE, ATTAINABLE, RELEVANT and TIMELY).
2. Read Read Read
Reading is the most important thing you can start to invest in yourself. Reading is life changing and life change starts when you educate yourself through books. We can now consume information in many other ways such as listening to audiobooks, watching videos or even have an e-reader. These are now very practical ways to consume information literally anywhere if you do not have time to sit at home and read.
3. Get a Coach
Who you associate with is who you become sooner or later. My advice to you is to find someone who is mastering a specific area of life and find a way to associate with that person. If you want to be in great shape find someone who has the results you want for your body and learns from them. If you want to have a multi-million-dollar business, find some who already achieved that and associate yourself with that person. Apply this strategy to any area of life you wish to invest in. I personally have mentors for each area of my life. They do so by books, virtual or in person, it doesn’t matter as long as you are consuming their experience, information, and values.
In this information age, there are many ways to invest in yourself. The list above is a great way to start though. When you invest in yourself you will see things you never imagined happen for you. A world of opportunities will open up. You will become emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially the best version of yourself. This is a never ending process that will make you one of the greatest person on the planet.
