Investments are tricky things and there is always risk involved. But today, I want to discuss an even BIGGER – and definitely the MOST important – investment you could ever make! And the best part is, there is no risk!
It’s not some secret stock tip, not the hottest market trend, not even the latest currency updates. It’s you! Your income and your skill sets are directly linked together. This one major thing never involves a risk and always pays a high return on your investment. The number one, never-lose, sure thing is any investment you make in yourself.
How Valuable Are You?
What determines your income, and your cash flow, is how valuable you are to the marketplace. What is your bank account saying about your current value? And what are you doing to increase your value
(and your bank account!)?
You hear what I’m saying? If you are looking to increase your bottom line, you need to invest in your skill sets. This makes you more valuable in the marketplace which will, in turn, increase your income.
The economy is always changing, growing and moving on to the “next big thing.” If you haven’t been investing in yourself, you are already falling BEHIND.
If you’re in the medical field, it doesn’t matter when you graduated. Nurses and doctors alike HAVE to stay up-to-date, because medical practices, medicines, treatments, protocols and research constantly change! Would you go to a doctor who was still practicing 20th Century medicine?
Do you still cling to those “computer training” classes you took 14 years ago? Just as you expect your doctor to remain current, so does the marketplace… putting this on your resume makes you look as outdated as someone who’s so “last century!”
Today, I want you to think about making 2 major investments in YOURSELF:
- What skills do you have that are losing value? How can you refresh, update or better those skill sets?
- What new skill can you learn to add value to your knowledge?
Everyone has something unique to offer to the marketplace. Do you want your skills to become overlooked or outdated? Or do you want to grow your skills and your value, along with your paycheck?
