Investing in Yourself to Increase Your Personal Value

One of the most powerful strategies for successful personal development and growth is investing in yourself and making YOU your most valuable asset in this life.

What is meant by the term, investing in yourself?

It's an interesting concept that deserves some time and research, since by putting it into action you can reap the rewards in direct proportion to what you invest.

How to Invest in Yourself

invest in yourselfRecognising yourself as being a vitally important and valuable asset is the first step in the process of personal investment.

Once you realise how important you are to your progress in life, it becomes very clear that you must do whatever it takes to improve your knowledge, understanding and skills in the process of personal development.

For example, if you want to be able to attract all the good you desire into your life, you are going to have to learn and master the law of attraction. You do that through training.

Make it your mission to obtain the best law of attraction certification training that is available and then study it to the best of your ability. You will learn what it is, how it works and most importantly, how to get it working in your life.

The Cost of Self Investment

Making a sound investment in your greatest asset will cost money.

That is a fairly understandable reality, no matter whether you invest in external assets such as real estate, stocks or commodities or you invest in your own training and education.

Since we're talking about training the self through education and practical activity, the cost of professional tuition courses can mount up, depending on the type of training you want and need.

Signing up for real world education is generally the best course of action, since you can often find relevant courses provided by local colleges tailored for adults. The downside is they can be expensive and they tie you down to a timetable of lessons that you must attend personally.

Online courses often represent the best value in monetary terms.

However, what you gain in being able to set your own timetable and work at your own pace, you lose out on the major benefit of real world training in the classroom by not having access to a real person to ask questions on the spot.

The Benefits of Self Investment

There are many benefits to investing in yourself as an asset for improving your life.

These can include financial independence, time freedom and self satisfaction among others.

When you invest in yourself in whatever subject you decide you want to improve in, you increase your value in that area in a number of ways. You actually become a more valuable person, if that makes sense.

Take for example the advertising world, that can pay its executives incredibly large fees for work that, in turn, will make companies massive profits. If you want to become one of those top performers and earners, you must improve your skills and knowledge.

Financial Rewards

You must be able to create advertising projects that will sell huge amounts of whatever it is the industry wants to sell. When successful, the financial rewards can be eye-watering!

You achieve that standing through education, which is the most effective form of self investment. But not just any run-of-the-mill education will do because you'll demand the best there is.

That will require you to invest financially in the best tuition courses available. In life, as the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for" and education is no different.

Research

You must do extensive research and learn everything there is to know about that industry and some. You don't get to the top of any industry unless you go the extra mile and position yourself as the top expert in your field.

You make yourself the expert that the experts come to for advice and information!

That's an investment worth making because very few people ever go to such great lengths to get to the top of their particular field. However, I didn't say it would be easy.

If it were easy, everyone would do it!

Self Motivation

Another drawback experienced by many people taking on further education is getting sufficiently motivated to actually do the coursework and complete the training by giving it their best.

This is where an aspect of enjoyment comes to the rescue.

Whatever field you choose to excel in, you must first be certain that you will enjoy the learning it. Also, that you have a keen interest in the subject itself to the point where you almost become obsessive about it.

It could happen that you feel that something is holding you back from taking that first important step. This is surprisingly common because many, if not most people will be harbouring some form of emotional blockage to their good.

This can be removed through a number of psychological interventions such as hypnotherapy, psychotherapy or adopting a more holistic approach with a form of Hawaiian prayer known as ho'oponopono, which mentally cleanses to remove emotional blockages.

It may not surprise you to discover that there is an excellent ho'oponopono certification course available online that you can read more about by following that link.

You Have to Love It!

In short, you have to love the subject so much, it won't feel like hard work to extend your education in that area.

An example could be if you decided you want to become an expert in graphic design. With the end game to become a graphic artist to create logos and advertising material for big companies that will pay big fees for your work.

If you absolutely love designing things and making visual art, then you will have no trouble spending a lot of time and effort in learning how to become the best at what you do!

Avoid Something You Won't Like

On the other hand, if the thought of earning huge sums of money for creating computer apps is exciting and appealing but you find you don't really like spending all that time and concentration to develop the programming and architecture of the end product, you may end up having a miserable time trying to learn the process and have little motivation to continue.

The only thing I'll add here is that while you need to choose a subject that you'll love so much you'll never get tired of it, there must be some aspects of it that will stretch you. There will be times you need to get out of your safe, comfort zone in order to grow beyond where you are now!

In short, you have to be ready, willing and happy to put your heart and soul into the subject you have chosen to educate yourself in for it to be enjoyable and for you to complete the training having excelled at the whole process.

What to Invest In

The actual subject matter of what you choose to invest in is not as important as making sure it is a subject that you truly have great inspiration to delve into and you have to really love it!

The point is to do something and give it your absolute best shot.

It won't matter if you are already working a full-time job but you feel you want more than it provides both on a financial level as well as a spiritually fulfilling level. You will find time to extend your education outside of your working hours if you are fully emotionally and intellectually committed to taking that step.

Summary

Learning a new skill can be a challenge well worth taking up on if it promotes your personal growth in that area.

Taking that skill and then improving upon it by taking your education as far as it is possible to take it will push you forward in your life. It will provide fulfilment in ways you may never have experienced before.

You can certainly reprogram your mind for success when you have the enthusiasm to take your ideas forward and learn all you can about them.

You absolutely can and should start investing in yourself to take you out of the space you now occupy and place you in a better space, with better prospects and better satisfaction in life.
