You Should Invest in Yourself
You often hear about investing in real estate, stocks, or most recently Bitcoin. This is because culturally in the United States having quantifiable assets is valued over intangible assets. However, investing in yourself sends a powerful message to those around you as well as yourself, that message is:
“I have potential and value. The time and energy that I spend growing my intellect, confidence, and creative energy is invaluable to myself and others.”
There is no better investment than the one you make in yourself. Money, markets, and materials wax and wane depending on the will of the economy. But your ability to be flexible and achieve results is much stronger than how much money you have currently.
Here are some way you can invest in yourself in 2018.

It is all too easy to second guess yourself and make decisions that don’t really work for you. Usually that first feeling we get is the right one. make sure you’re listening to yourself and not what others may think you should do.
