After learning to achieve our goals, lets learn how to invest.
People make investments, they invest in real estate, stock exchange, education and so forth. Very few people invest in themselves. Everyone wants to be more successful, they seek the recourse to be successful but when it comes to stepping over the line, that is committing to investment in themselves, they step back into the shadows
So what does it take to be the exception? To become what others want so that you can have what others don’t have. What does it take so that you can experience what others never will and make you contribute at a scale that others cannot?
It all lies in investing in the growth and development of yourself.
When you invest in yourself, you cross the line. You declare to your brain that you are worth investing in just like you would have invested in a couch or a house.
When you invest in yourself, you then commit to getting a return out of your investment. You have to get something out of what you have invested in. You are compelled to make it worth. You are more likely to apply follow-up, review and approve that which you have invested in.
So how much should you invest in yourself to catapult you to be the exception? Darren’s advice is, take 10% from your earnings and use it to invest in your personal development.
For every dollar you invest in your personal development you will see 30 dollars added.
You may have come from a dysfunctional family. You may lack any unique intelligence, talent or ability. But you can skyrocket based on education, training and development that you will get due to your 1 dollar investment in personal and professional growth. It will create a huge difference from what you would have been had you not invested in yourself.
If you want to be an exception take 10% of your earnings and commit it to your personal development plan.
