What Are You Investing in? 

Samuel Osho

When American statesman Benjamin Franklin died in 1790, he left a sum of $4400 USD as a gift to each of two cities, Boston and Philadelphia. The money had to be loaned out to young married couples at five percent interest. Unfortunately, the cities couldn’t have full access until 1990.

Two hundred years later, Franklin’s $8800 donation had grown to more than $6.5 million between two cities! 

 

Now, that’s a true story! 
 
Well, this is not about investments in brokerage accounts. 
 
It’s about a deliberate investment in yourself – mind, brain, skills, and relationships. 
It’s been a tradition for so many to struggle with reading three or five books a year. What if you can stay consistent with finishing ten or twenty pages per day, you will be amazed at how many books you would have completed by the end of the year. 
 
Set a goal for yourself and go for it. 
 
If you decide to read at least 20 pages of a book per day, you would have finished 12 books (200-page each) in four months. 
If you could write 250 words every day towards the completion of your book, you would have compiled a 120-page (30,000-word) first draft in about four months. 
 
If you devote one hour to learning a new skill every day, imagine how much competence you would have amassed in three months. 
 
There is tremendous power in the act of consistently investing in yourself. 

 

If you are currently experiencing a burnout or knowledge drought, don’t you think this is the best time for you to create a plan that will see you plunge into books, online courses and much more. 

You are your most valuable asset – your life, your mind, your brain, your body, your spirit, and your skills. If you can focus on making intentional investments in yourself, you will discover that there are no limits to what you can become.
