Today, I have a question for you: What are you investing in right now? For a change try to invest in yourself. It is worth every penny, believe me!
These days, people tend to invest in many things. The possibilities are endless! Some of these can be putting money in the bank; deposits, buying shares, etc. Keeping in mind the economy so that our investments are safe is always on the agenda.
But then…something happens. Your company or your bank goes bankrupt. And then, PUFF! Everything goes away. All the things that you thought you’ve been keeping “safe” are gone. What then?
Yes, of course there are always things you can do to minimise the risk, like spreading your portfolio, for example. But even so, you never know what may come. None of us do. That’s the tricky thing about the future. On the other hand past is teaching us that sometimes there is absolutely nothing you can do to prevent disaster.
Let me tell you about something you should always invest in. It’s the only thing no one can ever take away from you. It’s you.
Okay, maybe if you suffer from memory loss, you would be forgetting all this stuff. But if that’s the case, then I guess you wouldn’t have to worry about any of this, anyway, am I right? Like Dory, just keep swimming… (it’s a song from Finding Nemo if you didn’t know).
You are your most important asset.
So take care of it. Nurture it the best way you can. Read a lot, learn something new every day. Always wanted to know how to cook or write poetry or [insert favorite activity here] or anything else? Then, go for it! Take some classes! Google it!
Also, there are plenty of tools in information technology we can all use these days in order to learn and expand our knowledge.
This is how you invest in yourself which, in my opinion, is the best investment you can make with the biggest return, especially because you are the only judge on that.
Don’t leave your future chances on the market or the bank or anything else that doesn’t depend on you. You take control of all the things you are capable of doing.
Embrace the knowledge, exceed yourself!
They don’t say that “education is the key to the future” for no reason. They say it because it’s true. Look at the world. The best way to make a difference in it is to know how to make it better in the first place.
Imagine all the possibilities you would have. Go for the things you want to learn the most, the ones that simply put a smile on your face.
With time, you’ll be learning more with each day and you’ll be the expert. Everyone will want to work with you, not only because of your knowledge, but also your passion for the subject. This of course then brings more earnings and, above all, a much better life.
If you ask me that is true financial security!

Breaking taboo called FAILURE by talking openly about it, sharing my fail stories and lessons that I learned on my way back from hell. I had four successful companies that at one time all went bankrupt. You could say that I went from hero to zero. But I managed to survive! Down that road I became Fail Coach not by degree but by failing personally and professionally, learning from my failures and growing. If you are looking for a coach try not to find one with shiny diploma hanging on his wall but one that has personally gone to hell and back.
