Good afternoon team,
Everyone wants to be happy. We all want to be successful or be associated with success. however, we fail to invest in ourselves. Sometimes being happy takes effort. Invest in yourself and your happiness. If you are under the impression that you have already perfected yourself, you will never rise to the heights you re no doubt capable of.
It is not as much about who you used to be, as it is about who you choose to be.
Here is a guide on how to invest in yourself.
- Define where you want to get to.
It does not matter where it is. You need to have a vision of where you see yourself in future and write a list.
For example; last year i had this list
- Get a job with better terms
- Move to a better house
- Reduce weight
- Apply for a masters degree course
- Get screened for cervical cancer
- Reduce weight
This list enabled me to focus on myself and i got to achieve most of it.
After writing your list; divide it into 3 categories;
- Things you need skills for
- Things you can do immediately
- Things you need time for
For those that you need skills for, you can start working out on a plan to acquire the skills, this could be to go back to school, practice more, get a coach/ mentor or follow the footsteps of one who has already achieved what you need.
For those that require immediate action, for instance losing weight, you need to get started immediately working out on your body, mind and soul.
You need to have a strategy. in need of a job? apply for more positions, network, ask for the job.
When you want to accomplish anything, the best way to do it is to stop dreaming. to focus and treat it like a project you are being paid to do. a project your life depends on.
Always write down what you wish to achieve and set your mind towards achieving it. you will get it sooner than you expect.
Invest more in your self and you will lead a happier, more fulfilled life.
