There’s always room to invest in yourself, and you need to do everything possible for that. Things would be different if we were to talk to about money, but this is not the case! You have unlimited resources that will help you invest in yourself, your growth and development. If you constantly take care of you and your personal growth, everything that you created will also be in a never-ending development.
This refers not only to you and people who are surrounding you, but also to the business you may have already created. At the same time, if you don’t have your own business yet but are planning to, you will surely need a certain level of personal development. As we said, growth and development are as important as the paperwork and tasks you have to complete throughout your working day!
“Life is growth. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead.” – Morihei Ueshiba
If you know yourself and what you want, no one can stop you from doing all those things that will help you achieve your dream. However, knowing who you really are is not that easy. Well, you know your favorite cake and the place where you want to marry someday, but is it really you? Do you think that knowing yourself is as easy as it is? No, of course not!
To understand who you are and what exactly you want from this life, you have to question yourself, understand which things you value the most and why. However, this is not the end! What are your interests, and your nature? Are you an extrovert that always talks and communicates, or are you an introvert who enjoys covid-19 isolations? When do you wake up, and when should you start working? What are your strengths and how do you use them? Do you accept your weaknesses or maybe you prefer ignoring them?
As you can see, everything matters when you’re trying to know yourself. And believe it or not, when you know yourself, you become undefeated!
“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” –Carl Jung
Don’t Criticize Yourself!
If you start criticizing yourself, you will lose all those things that you managed to invest! Even though a drop of criticism won’t harm anyone, you still need to concentrate on you and your achievements! The more you see your progress, the more you understand that you deserve the best. Be grateful to you and your efforts, since they helped you achieve these results!
Louise Hay, an American motivational writer once said, “you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” Life is not about criticizing yourself, it’s about working hard and achieving the expected results. If you, however, don’t achieve those results, you have to rethink your strategy, revise your steps or simply find another approach. Life is too short to spend it on self-criticism, there are more important things to do!
For some reason, people are always embarrassed to ask questions. If you’re one of those people who think that not knowing something is a real disaster, you have to change your way of thinking right now! This is especially dangerous in business where you always have to keep your finger on the pulse. If you, as a business owner, don’t know anything about this or that phenomenon, and are afraid to ask, you will find your business going down the drain… Everything depends on knowledge and information: if you’re too shy to ask, you and your business won’t succeed.
Additionally, there’s nothing wrong with asking questions! We all learn and we all start something from the square one! There’s nothing to be ashamed of: it’s quite the opposite! If you’re able to ask and are not afraid to show your I-Don’t-Know face, you should be proud of that!
“The first step to receiving an answer is being brave enough to ask a question,” remember!
As you can see, there are many ways to invest in yourself. We hope you understand that investing in your personal growth is a must, because when you’re feeling good on a spiritual level, everything you do feels that way as well! So, if you want to start your own business, you should first of all be sure that you will be emotionally stable enough to withstand all the difficulties that the business world offers!
