“Habits of thinking need not to be forever. One of the most significant findings in psychology in the last twenty years is that individuals can choose the way they think.”
People invest a lot in businesses and age believing that money is what matters. But have you ever wondered which is the most important asset in your life?
We believe that people are the ones responsible to make this world move. Acting for a better future and create the reality they want. That is why we bring you six steps to invest in yourself, the most important asset in your life:
1. Get to know yourself
Understanding where we stand and what motivates us to do what we do is vital for our lives. Take your time to define your motivations, strengths and what you desire in this life. Everything you do will be a result of your own inner journey.
2. Think positive
On average we have 50,000 thoughts per day and up to 70% of them are negative. The perception we have about ourselves directly influence the way we will behave and act. Thinking positive will contribute to an increase of self-confidence and reduce the barriers that we set for ourselves.
3. Plan your week
There is diversity in the possibilities that can be achieved each year. Start by planning each of your weeks in order to administrate and prioritize your goals. Planning each week helps you to have a guide and awareness of the things meant to be done. It also helps you measure either if you are achieving or not what you propose to yourself.
4. Bring your ideas into actions
Investing in yourself requires one action at a time because ideas are valuable only when they are brought into action. Keep a balance between what you think you will do, what you say you will do and what you actually do. Put energy into your actions and you will soon start to notice a change.
5. Perceive time as a currency
We always set a value for things, but we rarely set a value for our time. We were given a determined amount of time to live on this world. Understanding that time is your most scarce resource in this life will help prioritize your activities. Decisions are a cost of opportunity and you decide which battles are worth the fight.
6. Invest in your mind
The most important step to invest in yourself starts in your mind. Nowadays we have access to the most quantity and quality of information that humankind has ever had. Learning a new topic is just a few clicks and time away. Continuously acquire new knowledge in order to develop yourself and have a bigger perspective of things.
