Today is a fantastic day. About 40 enthusiastic young professionals will show up at my event in a couple of hours. They are all nervous, excited and happy to devote this day to one single purpose: self discovery. What do I really want out of my life? How can I give back? How does this answer translate to my everyday working life? Big questions which should not be taken lightly.
The best investment you can make is in yourself
I can't remember who said it, in which context or when. But I do know why this is so important. For the last couple of years I've been investing in myself. I've read more books than I can remember, started my own business and made a lot of friends along the way. I've have invested more time, energy in money in these projects than anything else in my life. And I can say with complete conviction that it was worth every last penny.
I have grown so much as a person. I have learned more than I can write down. I find myself on a path that will bring me more meaning in my life than anything else. And best off all, I have impacted more people than I could imagine. I don't want to get to mystical, but elevating above yourself and giving back is truly wonderful. And days like these make me forget about all the stress, hustle and uncertainty at times. So start today with investing in yourself and don't stop. It's the best gift you can give to yourself and the world.
