A guest post by Connor Murray
Been taking action?
I certainly have been, thanks for asking.
I’ve got today’s book to my right and my morning protein shake to my left.
Ahhhh morning rituals.
Anyway I have some practicality to rap at you today.
Pop quiz: What’s the best investment you could ever make?
Real estate? An undervalued stock? Education?
The truth is these can be good investments (if you are careful), but none of them are consistently the best possible investment you can make.
Here’s a hint: What’s the most valuable asset you have?
I want you to think carefully on this one. This quiz is 60% of your final grade.
Okay I’ve had my fun.
YOU ARE YOUR GREATEST ASSET.
As a result, the best investment you could ever make is in yourself.
Sadly though, most people invest nothing in themselves. People will collect there pay check and immediately blow it on liabilities like sunglasses or expensive clothes.
Tattoo this phrase into the back of your skull: "Everything gets better when you get better"
Wasting your money on shitty consumer goods will not make you better in the slightest.
Instead, a portion of your monthly income should be going to your own self improvement, through books, mentors, coaches, audio programs, etc.
Everything only gets better as you improve yourself and your own capabilities.
Now I’m not saying every penny you earn needs to go to your own self-improvement. Treating yourself to material goods can be a good incentive to continue working hard.
What I am saying is that a certain portion of your monthly income should be invested in your own self-improvement. You will be amazed at the growth you experience as you do this.
Take action with this knowledge.
I’m cracking open this book now.
