When we think about investment, we usually think about money. Having a lot of money can make life more comfortable and convenient. But there are some things in life that money can’t buy. These are the things you need to invest in so that you can enjoy life even if you lose your job or you lack money.
We’ve all heard the saying “health is wealth”. Ensuring that you are in your best health is the most basic and the best investment you can make for your self. With good health, you will have the energy to do the things you want and need to do. This means that you can maximize your time in all your activities. Having good health also puts you into a more positive mindset. A healthy person is never too tired to give a smile, for example. So make sure to look after your health so you can be the best you, every day.
One of the best investment you can make is your own growth. Work on improving who you are. Strive to expand your knowledge and understanding in the different areas of your life. Be it through books, audiobooks, seminars or taking classes; put aside time to nurture your own personal development. Not only will this enhance your self-confidence; it will also allow you to be able to help and guide others. It will open up more opportunities for you in your career and social interactions. Investing in your personal development provides you with the resources and opportunities to reach your goals.
Everyone has a dream. It is what motivates us to get up and work each day. Our dreams drive us to do what is needed so that we can enjoy what we want. As long as we have a dream; we always have hope for a brighter future. So invest in your dreams. Whether it starts with making time for a hobby; making that first call to enquire about a class or workshop, or to practice your basic skills so you can hone them. All dreams start with that one small step. So don’t hold yourself back. Unleash the genius in you little by little. Take that first step and keep moving forward.
No man is an island. Everyone needs a good friend, a shoulder to cry on or a good listener to tell their dreams and fears to. This is why cultivating good relationships is one of the best investments you can make. When you have a good relationship with your family members; you are assured that you will always have a safe place to go home to. Whether you fail or succeed in your goals; there are always people who will love your for who you are. Being surrounded by supportive friends, gives you the courage to go after your dreams because you know someone always has your back. Good relationships gives us a sense of security.
Having money in the bank and good financial investments is always an advantage. But if you can’t enjoy your life because of bad health, feeling worthless or aimless, or not having friends; then you are a poor soul indeed.
