If you want to invest in something with minimum risk and a guaranteed big return, invest in yourself.
The best asset you will ever have is yourself, so invest in yourself. It will be the best investment you ever make.
Here are the top ten best investments with greatest rewards:
I. Invest in your education
Money comes and goes, but knowledge stays.
Take courses. If necessary, go to school. Do whatever it takes to keep on learning.
II. Invest in your craft.
You must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. You must dedicate your life to mastering your skill. That’s the secret to success.
Sharpen your skills and aim for mastery.
III. Invest in your happiness.
Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times.
Do what makes you happy. Filter out the things that don’t.
IV. Invest in your experiences.
Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell not stuff to show.
Travel and see the world. Make a bucket list. Try things that get you out of your comfort zone.
V. Invest in your self-development.
Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.
Read self-development books. Build your confidence. Think more positive. Become a better person. Learn to be happier.
VI. Invest in your relationships.
The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships.
Our time is limited here. Make time for people who help you grow as a person and less for those that hold you back. Think quality.
VII. Invest in your health.
When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.
Make time to improve your health. Health should be one of the top priorities for a better life.
VIII. Invest in your mind.
You either control your mind or it controls you.
Read and write more. Learn to express yourself and communicate well, to manage stress and have peace. Relax more.
IX. Invest in your creativity.
Creativity is intelligence having fun.
Learn a new skill, a new language, or how to play a new instrument. Have fun.
X. Invest in your future.
The future starts today, not tomorrow.
-Pope John Paul II
Organize your life, prepare, and make goals to reach for the next year, for five years, ten years, and thirty years. Save and invest money early and regularly so your future self will thank you.
