”Just like a tailor made suit, you need to have a tailor made life”.
In order for you to succeed you really need to invest time in you, yes you need sometimes to be selfish and think about what is best for you.
One problem I have had in the past is that I always put other people before me and of course this is good to care about other people.
But first and foremost you most take care of you and think about you, then you can think about others. There is a lot of different sayings about this like ”if you don’t love yourself, how can you love someone else”. ”If you are not happy with yourself, how can you be happy with someone else”.
But the investment stuff is the thing on the topic today, what I mean about this is that your most valuable treasury is time. Time is limited, so never waste it.
If you have a job you go to for 8 hours a day and then go home and just do nothing, you just go home, watch some tv and then go to bed, then repeat the day.. NO!! Stop!!
You have invested 8 hours of you life in a company that is not yours (if you of course don’t own your own company), you invest your valuable time in someone else. So at least you should be able to invest 1-2 hours of your time in you.
Please don’t have excuses that your are tired because you work hard and you have a demanding job etc, the reason why you don’t work on yourself after or before your job is because you are uninspired or that have goals that you are excited about.
I have often a few hours before work and 1 hour during my lunch when I can work on my own goals and invest time in myself, that is one of the reasons why I get up at 04.15 everyday.
This is also why I love the weekends, not because I am looking forward to rest and do nothing, but because the weekend is the only time I can truly work on myself and invest time in me and my goals from the minut I wake up to the minut I close my eyes again.
So this goes back to always have a plan of action to invest time in yourself, how you can do it if you have a 8 hour work schedule and you maybe have a family etc.
Planning is the keyword, plan your day, plan your week. Maybe you can’t work on your goals everyday and invest time in yourself at first, but start with every other day or every third day. Then build up to everyday, because I promise you, you will feel more alive and more happy if you can work on yourself everyday.
I know how I feel if I have had a whole day at I have not done nothing to work on myself or invested any time in me, that is a ”bad day” for me. So I don’t allow myself to have bad days anymore, I invest at least 1-2hours on me everyday. So should you!
