You are Your #1 Investment! Part II

In the last blog I wrote about how important it is to recognize that your personal gifts, talents, ideas, and concepts are the number one thing you should be investing in. What lies within you has just as much potential to create wealth as the stock market or real estate, perhaps even more potential. As promised I will now discuss some of the things that I am doing to investment in my #1 investment. These are not listed in order of importance:

1. Reading- I invest in myself by reading business, personal development, and spiritual growth books. The knowledge from reading that I acquire gives me fresh ideas, more information, and motivation.

2. Physical Exercise- Physical exercise is very important because it helps me balance stress plus stay in top physical and mental condition. It keeps me competitive and that is vital to tackling goals.

3. Practicing my craft- I spend at least 10 hours a week practicing my gift, sharpening it in order to ensure it that it does not get dull. This also helps keep me motivated.

4. Setting aside money just for my vision- This is probably a no brainer, but few people actually do it. It takes money to produce a tangible vision. Plus this makes me more committed to my vision, because I'm not only physically and mentally vested, but monetarily as well.

5. Building and Cultivating Relationships- Relationships are better than currency.They take time and energy to build yet they yield profitable results for myself and the person(s) I am building with. Most of the good things that have happened to me in life or got me closer to success were because of good relationships.

There a several other ways to invest in your number 1 asset. But in my opinion, these are some of the key ones. If you have one you would like to add to the list, please share in a comment.
