Choose yourself so you can give more.
“Invest in yourself or no one else will – stop being afraid of what could go wrong & start getting excited about what could go right.”
– Tony Robbins
When you make the effort to improve yourself, you will always see results – results that will transform your life and the lives of those around you.
While you are preparing for Life & Wealth Mastery, start to take note of your time and investments. Are you giving your time away to others, are you making excuses to avoid self-investment? While we all want to be helpful, sometimes it behooves everyone if you say “no” instead. Because you cannot always afford to take on someone else’s tasks. And it will not serve others if you cannot be your best self for them.
You know when you get on an airplane, the first thing they say to you is, “If we run into trouble and we lose oxygen, these masks are going to drop.” What is the first thing they tell you to do — put the mask on your child? No. They tell you to put it on yourself first. Sounds like a selfish approach – your kid’s gasping for breath, “Oh, let me get myself some air.” But the reason is, if you don’t have oxygen while trying to give it to someone else, you’re going to pass out. You can’t help anyone if you don’t help yourself. It’s not selfish. It’s actually the least selfish thing you can do.
The time you spend to rest and take care of yourself, the time you spend to revitalize and rejuvenate – this produces real, tangible value for you, your partner and your kids. In essence, you are strengthening your relationship with yourself and with your loved ones. And if that is important to you, then it’s worth devoting time to.
By committing to your personal growth and making small shifts you ultimately transform the way you act so that you can consistently and sustainably use the time you have to create a life that truly matters.
So here’s to you and the journey of Mastery that you are on – your commitment to becoming your best self at Life & Wealth Mastery is not only bettering your own life, but it’s bettering the lives of the people around you.
“Generally speaking, investing in yourself is the best thing you can do. Anything that improves your own talents; nobody can tax it or take it away from you…if you’ve got talent yourself and you’ve maximized your talent, you’ve got a tremendous asset that can return ten-fold.”
– Warren Buffet
