3 Ways to Invest in Yourself

posted in: Love Yourself Now 82

Welcome to June, dear one. On deck this month is the topic of wealth, abundance, and prosperity.  

With today’s New Moon lunar energy focused on your investments, it seems to me the most important one is the investment in yourself. 

Think about this… Investing in yourself may be the most profitable investment you ever make. Not only will it yield future returns, but there is a current pay-off as well.

This has been my experience. My investment in myself has been the greatest act of self-love yet, and it’s turned out to be a profitable investment as well.

When I realized that the worst thing I could do to self-sabotage my future was to continue doing the same thing and assume that something would magically improve, I switched gears and began to show up for life through a series of small, personal non-negotiable investments in myself.

What I know is that when I gave myself permission to boldly take steps to uplevel my entrepreneurial performance, my health and well-being, and my spiritual life —the universe responded by granting me amazing results.

So, besides the stock market, how else can you invest in yourself and your future?

How about investing in your creativity? Creativity, in all forms, helps us to grow personally and professionally. It informs the solutions to the problems we face. The process of creativity utilizes other parts of the brain that maybe we don’t exercise much. There are a lot of ways to invest in your creativity, you could brainstorm ideas, learn a new language, write, paint, dance, or make music. 

Your best ideas come when you are using your creative mind, so go ahead, give yourself permission to be creative.

What about investing in your confidence? By investing in your self-confidence you learn to have the courage to be yourself unapologetically. When you strengthen your confidence you create greater self-love. And with greater self-love, you begin seeing and owning the value you have to offer to others. 

There’s no lack of training available these days, so you might consider enrolling in a workshop, participating in a webinar, or even investing in a mentor.

Your confidence could be one of the most important determining factors for your future success.

Consider investing in your body temple. Nurturing your mind, body, and spirit gives you more energy, more knowledge, more compassion, and better health. 

Practicing life-long learning keeps your mind active and maintains your mental ability. Consider reading daily, engaging in conversation or even exploring different cultures.

Give your body exquisite care. Rest when you are tired. Fuel yourself with high-quality foods. Practice preventative care. Prepare your exterior self in ways that promote confidence. 

Create a daily spiritual practice to nourishes your heart. When you practice meditation, prayer, and other spiritual activities important feel-good chemicals are released throughout your body. And they do a body good.

Investing in your mind, body, and spirit is an investment in your personal health and wellness that leads to increased personal gain.

One of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself is to invest in yourself. After all, if you don’t who else will?

Investing in yourself physically, spiritually, emotionally, and yes, financially, allows you to be that BEST version of yourself. It shapes the way you interact with opportunities, situations and the people around you, and it’s a reflection of the opinion you hold of yourself.

So, go ahead and give yourself permission to invest in yourself. Your future depends on it. At the end of the day, it’s uniquely your responsibility anyway.

What areas of life can you begin investing in? I always love reading your thoughts and comments, so go ahead and share them.
