Bet On Yourself

August 2, 2018

Welcome back! If you're new here you couldn't have come at a better time (trust me, keep reading). For the past 8 months we've been working through challenge after challenge after challenge.  Our goal is to develop ourselves and make the most of every opportunity.  Cool, right? I know! So since we've been busting our butt's month after month, this month EVERYONE is getting a break! Lol, YES I said BREAK haha! In August I want you to continue investing in yourself, but also spend time enjoying your closest friends, building your marriage/relationship, and maintaining your spiritual health. I want you to feel refreshed and energized for all of the goodies I have coming up in the next season! Cool? Alright :).

So, a question for you. If I were to ask you to invest $500 into someone that you believe will crush their goals within the next year and if they do your return will be double. (you invest $500 and get $1,000 by this time next year if the person you invest in accomplishes their goal). Who would you invest in?

What Kind Of Person Would You Invest In?

Who was the first person that came to mind when you answered the question? Was it just one person or a few people? What kind of character do they have? Why do you believe that they will accomplish their goals? How did they convince you that they are goal-getters?

"Show me someone 
who does a good job, 
I will show you someone 
who is better than most 
& worthy of the company of kings."
- Proverbs

When I first did this exercise a few years ago I chose someone that had a proven record of success. This person made a habit of striving to accomplish bigger, more challenging personal goals and projects. They didn't meet all of their deadlines all of the time but their commitment to their goals and patience with them self was admirable. I learned from watching them that anything is possible if I'm willing to work for it. Now, many years later when I consider someone that I would invest in believing that they will double my investment I think of a few people, but the number one person that I would nominate is myself.

Stop Hiding

I'm sure that you can think of many talented and skillful people around you that would probably be good investments BUT I hope that you can also see the value, strengths, and skills within yourself. You are a GOLD MINE. There are so many treasures in you waiting to be unlocked. So many valuable idea's that are currently hiding, waiting for you to do some digging! Don't just sit on your potential, get moving!

"I don't like to gamble, but if there's one thing I'm willing to bet on, it's myself."- Beyonce

I want you to bet on yourself, invest in your dreams, and get cracking on your goals! Show me how much you believe in yourself. Show me that your life can be different than what it is. I know that your a leader, a potential world changers. I know that you have the power to create change in your family and community so come out of hiding and start doing it. Publish your book, produce the album, create change in society. Everyone is waiting for you.

Until next time,

Theresa Forever
