I recently reflected on a defining moment in my life where I had reached a point where I knew I needed to invest in myself.
It wasn’t an easy decision. I had to balance my commitments — which meant I had to say no to certain responsibilities.
The financial aspect was another consideration. While it wasn’t a burden, it was an unplanned expense.
I remember feeling a mix of apprehension and excitement when I decided to choose myself.
Looking back, I can say it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The value I gained from betting on myself was immeasurable. It propelled my professional and personal growth.
I gained fresh perspectives and discovered a stronger, more resilient version of myself.
I’m not a person who has a lot of regrets, but I do wish I had made the decision to invest in myself earlier.
Investing in yourself is the lifeline to your satisfaction. As the new year approaches pause and ask yourself what plans you have for your development.
If you’re not intentional, another year may pass without you taking action. Let me share with you the top 5 reasons that motivated my clients to make a bold step and invest in themselves.
