A timeless advice
For New Year resolution and beyond
Did you make any New Year resolution? Here is a timeless advice from a great investor: “invest in yourself”.
“Ultimately, there's one investment that supersedes all others: Invest in yourself.
Address whatever you feel your weaknesses are, and do it now. I was terrified of public speaking when I was young. I couldn't do it. It cost me $100 to take a Dale Carnegie course, and it changed my life. I got so confident about my new ability, I proposed to my wife during the middle of the course. It also helped me sell stocks in Omaha, despite being 21 and looking even younger.
Nobody can take away what you've got in yourself -- and everybody has potential they haven't used yet. If you can increase your potential 10%, 20% or 30% by enhancing your talents, they can't tax it away. Inflation can't take it from you. You have it the rest of your life.”
~ Warren Buffet (Source: Fortune)
I take this “invest in yourself” advice to carry through to many areas of our lives. We each may have several weaknesses that we need to address.
But not just weaknesses. We can also invest in our strengths to help us be even better at them.
We ought to invest in our health. (Good health is good strategy)
And I highly recommend investing in family and friends. (How do you want others to remember you?)
Lastly, invest in personal finance. If you are not yet well versed, start learning bit by bit. I will share more about this in the future.
Have a great day.
