Life is a tumultuous journey from start to finish. No matter where you are in your journey, you most likely feel rushed to some extent and like you are constantly busy. This often leads people to simply try to get what needs to be done finished as quickly as possible and then going off to relax in some, hopefully unique way. However one thing that is lost through this rushed lifestyle is the ability or the want to focus on yourself. Now that might sound terribly selfish and vain, but in reality, taking time to focus on yourself, to invest in yourself in various ways is all we have. Its the only road we have between the person seen now in the mirror, and your best self, that you have seen inside of yourself since you were a child. You are essentially giving yourself room to grow, and develop, as you very well should.
Now there are different ways to invest in yourself, you can learn new skills, develop better relationships. or maybe develop yourself professionally. There are endless things that you can do in order to improve yourself, and it is always just that one little step a day that makes the difference in the end between you now, and your best self.
So here are a few reasons why developing yourself is so very important.
1. If you never spend time on yourself, developing your skills and talents, they will never produce results and it will be like you threw that talent away.
2. If you don't spend time on yourself as a person, professionally and otherwise, you will never be able to use the person you could have been to help others.
3.If you don't spend that time with yourself, developing, you might never figure out who you really are.
4. If you aren't spending time growing yourself, you are probably leading a fairly stagnant life, that will lead to unhappiness.
5. finally, if you leave all of your development to chance, you could miss out on all development entirely. That could cause you to miss out on serious oppourtunities you could have gotten, maybe even missing out on what some would call your destiny.
No matter how you look at it however, not investing in yourself is in reality, more costly than not investing.
So go out there and make yourself the best investment you have ever made!
