Invest In Yourself

April 5, 2020

"The only person you are 
destined to become is 
the person you decide to be."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you've been a part of this community you know that I'm all about developing and challenging yourself to stop dreaming and start doing. You also understand the importance of continual growth and you're actively pushing yourself to live up to your full potential and maximize your life.

Every month we do a monthly personal development challenge and so far we've learned more about ourselves through self-awareness (May 2018), pushed ourselves to crush our  goals through self-discipline (April 2018), and we forced ourselves to develop our ability to focus in order to maximize results (February 2018).

If you'd like a full review of the challenges we've done this year you can check them out here.

Now for this month's challenge we are going to invest in ourselves. This simply means we're going to choose an area we want to strengthen in our life, character, business (or whatever else you chose). Then we're going to get to work and start investing in ourselves by doing whatever it takes (without compromising our integrity) to get the results we want. We have to be completely sold on the idea, count the cost, and be willing to pay the price.

"Don't stop until 
you get the results you want."

Action Step 1: Decide WHAT you want to accomplish. Clearly identify exactly what area of your life you want to focus on. This includes your family relationships, finances, business, character, spirituality, etc.

After you've decided the area you will work on, clarify exactly what it is within that goal you want to strengthen. So, for example, the are you choose to focus on could be business growth. Now you have to specify which aspect of your business you want to strengthen or develop. Is it customer relationships, marketing, or finances?

Action Step 2: Create a plan. HOW are you going to accomplish what you wrote in action step 1? Who can you connect with to help you make this happen? What book can you read that'll help you get your mind in the right place to get amazing results? Who has done it before you and is willing to give you feedback? Or what kind of character do you need to be able to get those results? What exactly do you want and how will you do/get it?

Action Step 3: Don't try to implement action step 2 on your own. Find a reliable ACCOUNTABILITY partner. Now, I know that some of you are thinking..."I don't know anyone that has time to help me, is interested in personal growth, or is a goal-getter." Stop right there. You don't know who is able to help you until you open your mouth and ASK for it! You don't know what people are capable of or what their goals are until you start talking to them about stuff like that. You are surrounded by people with big dreams who would love to help you, you just don't know it yet.

Everyone is born a dreamer. We all have things we want to accomplish in life, we all desire more than what we currently have and experience. You just have to reach out and ask someone you trust to hold you accountable to getting results in this one area of your life for the next 30 days. Are you with me?

"Life is what you make it
so create something great."

We can't afford to live in fear, self-doubt, or comparison anymore. This month, let's focus on investing in ourselves so that we can maximize our time on earth. You ready? Let's do it! Until next time,

  1. Accountability is such an important part. Taking on big goals is easier with someone to help encourage you and to cheer you on.

    1. Right! Two people working together is always better than one person trying to hustle and crush it on their own.
