Not investing in yourself is EXPENSIVE

Are you investing in yourself? 

I don’t mean buying handbags and getting your nails done. I mean, are you investing in your mindset, your behaviour, and your thinking?

Are you investing in healing your trauma?

Because NOT investing in yourself is actually costing you. It’s costing you time, money, and above all, happiness. 

If I didn’t spend money investing in myself to work through my shit, I would not be where I am today. It’s totally worth every cent and I spent A LOT of money! Over $150,000 over 8 years. 

You may balk at this price tag but without that investment and all of my hard work, I would still be angry, bitter, and cynical. 

Every dollar I invested, I have made back in double. 

But the most important thing is how unbelievably happy I am in my life. 

What’s the point of having an expensive car, a big house, and fancy clothes if you’re miserable?

How much is your happiness worth to you? 

When you don’t invest in yourself, it will cost you somewhere else. 

If you don’t have what you want and you’re not happy with an area of your life (love, work, relationships), what’s holding you back from working on it?

Don’t tell me you’re saving for it to happen later – NOW is the right time. 

The only person holding you back is YOU.  Help is out there and you need to prioritise yourself to achieve everything you want. 

You can’t change the world if you don’t start with yourself. 

Topics discussed and where to find them:

[4:36]: If I didn’t spend money investing in myself I would definitely not be where I am today.

[6:45]: How worthy is your happiness? 

[6:55]: When I had no money, my happiness was worth an $8,000 retreat. I decided to not buy a wedding ring and instead use that money to invest in a mentor and my happiness. 

[8:40]: I have such a happy life, I do work that lights me up, I’m married to my best friend, and I’m surrounded by incredible women.
