Investing in yourself is the best investment you can ever make. Success does not come over night it is the consequences of the actions you take today. Sometimes we want to see immediate results but life teaches us patience and understanding. As Dr Tibane (Professional speaker and an authentic author) in his book ‘Advance your life’ he believes that Success is a Science. If success is a science, it means it can be studied and it can be applied by anyone.

Over the course of my life through the inspirational and great books I have read, the motivational speakers I have had an opportunity to listen to, I’ve learned that the power to accomplish what you want abides with an individual. One thing that stood out for me is that; it’s important to have a better understanding of Yourself, understanding who you are and your strengths. It sounds deceptively simple but it is incredibly powerful. Sometime last year I attended a conference at Rhema Bible Church Bishop T.D Jakes was a guest of honor. He said,

“If you don’t know yourself, then you don’t know what feeds you. What feeds you is important. Don’t be doing things that don’t feed You…”

This is a powerful message. Invest time and money on improving You, Improvement begins with ‘I’ which means you must strive to become a better version of yourself. There is no quick fix, take the time invest in yourself. You are worth it. It is your responsibility to update and upgrade your life all the time. Ensuring that you have the latest information in your chosen pursuit and making sure that you are relevant and in sync with the constant changing environment. After all the purpose of existence is GROWTH.

“Invest in as much of yourself as you can, you are your own biggest assets by far.” — Warren Buffett

Few years back I had an opportunity to do StrengthFinder test. The StrengthFinder test identifies your top 5 strengths and provides a detailed explanation for utilizing and managing your strengths. For more information you can check out their website: www.strengthsfinder.com and buy the copy of the book ‘Now, Discover Your Strengths’ by Donald. O Clifton and Marcus Buckingham

Enjoy your life journey. Keep Shining!!!
