You are Your #1 Investment! Part I

YOU ARE YOUR GREATEST INVESTMENT! Sometime ago I was talking to my uncle about how I was interested in investing in real estate and stocks and how I was in the process of studying these wealth vehicles. He said something very profound that has stuck with me to this day and even reshaped my thinking. He said you are the one you need to be investing in. Stocks, real estate, bonds, and other assets are excellent investments to make, but concentrating on developing your number one assett is the most profitable and rewarding thing to do. So many of us focus on everything outside of us that we can become succesful with that we lose sight that our own ideas, concepts, inventions, gifts, and talents will help us create wealth probably even sooner than the alternatives. It makes sense to me because even though I'm very interested in real estate, I'm much more passionate about my music and other ideas that I have that have the potential to become viable businesses. I can spend all day writing songs, perfecting my craft, and coming up with ideas and strategies on how I want to run my business. That passion is just not matched when I'm learning about the stock market. It may just be my personality but I enjoy the challenge of creating something from nothing and watching it take on a life of its own. So for those who may be similar to me in this way, I encourage you to start valuing the ideas, gifts, and talents that you have and see them for the gems that they are. They really are worth investing in. In the next blog I will describe how I am investing in myself.

Please share your thoughts.
