Do you invest in yourself? Naw, I’m good.
Have you ever said that? When your car broke down, sitting in the driveway or side of the road. You go to a car dealership to look for a deal. The salesman asks if he can help you. You know you need help. You know you want and need a new car or at least something to get around in. Do you say, ‘Naw, I’m good? Just looking.’ Just kicking tires. Once you make the decision to buy a new car, or anything, you always find the money. Do you spend any money on your improving your mind?
Many working people spend their hard-earned dollars on vacations. They take a wonderful, temporary reprieve from the usual problems of life. When they return to work it doesn’t take long before the stress and daily grind cause them to forget about fun and relaxation. Health and fitness are vitally important to ensure you live well. Regularly taking time for your mental and spiritual health is as necessary as looking after your physical health.
Results don’t just happen. Kicking tires is not a good habit. We all get burdened with the opinions of others until we sabotage our self-image, if we buy into the lies and disparaging remarks that shatter our confidence. To change your future, you must be willing and able to change your paradigms, to stop kicking tires. Paradigms are a multitude of habits that have been programmed into our minds, mostly by other people. God made you in His image; perfectly. Sometimes we get covered up by thoughts that cause us to forget.
Invest in the very power you have, YOU! There is a no better return on investment (ROI) than that! You don’t have to work harder, the money is not the problem, you just haven’t made the decision. When you make a decision, your mind flips onto another frequency and the money is always there for whatever you decide to buy or invest in. You always find a way to make it happen, to purchase whatever you like, whatever is important to you. You investing in You is the best thing you can do for yourself. Your future self will thank you. Make the decision to invest in yourself.
