- The takeaway from this episode is … who you become by overcoming limits is who you’ve been waiting for, but you’re not done.
- Here’s what this will do for you … the real you is the only investment that will pay off once you return to your real home.
- Here’s what I want you to do with it … write about how you have become more, so far.
How do you invest your money? … and do not say, you do not have any money to invest.
People say they don’t have any money to invest in the stock market. They also say they don’t have any time to improve themselves or any time left over to be spiritual. That is false because you are already spiritual, you came in that way. You may not have been born into a family with a lot of money, but you do have some discretionary money and time that you mostly waste.
Let’s start with the asset everybody has the same amount of, your time.
Everyone has 24-hours in a day. How much of that time do you allocate to contemplating why you are here and what you are supposed to be doing? Most people squander any extra time and money they have with mindless activities.
What if you took ten percent of your time to invest in yourself? Set that time aside where you could be in a quiet place while focusing on your breathing so you can hear the guidance coming through? What if you did this for just 15 minutes every day? How would that change, not only this day but all future days?
It’s like learning anything else … if you want to learn something you go take a class. If you want it badly enough you will find the time and the money to take that class. However, most people only equate taking classes just to make more money. Making money is not the goal of your soul, it’s about making a difference. It’s to become a person who contributes in every way they can to themselves, friends and family, and to the world.
Set aside at least twenty percent of your money to invest in yourself. It doesn’t have to be an extravagant expense. You could buy a book for ten dollars and learn something from it that will enhance your life for all time.
You could attend a self-improvement class and a gym to keep yourself fit in both worlds. These investments in yourself will be the most valuable investments you will ever make. It requires a relatively small amount of money and allocation of your time.
CALL TO ACTION:
- The most important asset you possess is your time.
- The second most important asset you possess is your capital.
- These two assets of time and money, when invested in you, will bring you a huge return that will snowball throughout your life.
HOW IT WORKS: People think of investments as something that is outside of them, like a financial investment of some kind. Those types of investments may or may not pay off. When you invest in yourself the payoff is always something that gets richer with time. It builds upon itself with a greater and greater understanding of who you are.
Financial investments are of this world and will remain in this world when you are released from it. If you can’t take it with you it’s just an illusion and only of this world.
The investment of your time in remembering why you came here and following through on that is a return on your investment that survives death. You take what you learned and who it is that you became because of it. ~ Linda Deir
