Are you looking for the best investment that will give you more than 1000% returns? Or even higher. Then continue reading.
Nope, this is not an MLM business or an affiliate marketing business. This is also not a franchising business. Are you ready?
This is called YOU corporation.
Yap, you heard it right! This is called YOU corporation. YOU as in ikaw!
Imagine that yourself is going to be a corporation or a business. In order for this corporation to grow, like any other business, it needs investment. The business needs the right knowledge and skills to keep running.
It will need time, effort and money to be successful and grow over time. And as it is being managed well, it will grow and grow and grow.
As it grows, the YOU corporation gives awesome rewards to its employee (YOU). It creates a long-term stream of success and happiness.
If we really want to be successful in any areas of our life, the first step to getting there is to invest in ourselves. We need to invest time, effort and money to gain skills and knowledge that could make ourselves better. This is the best investment we could ever have.
This applies to personal finance as well as any other areas of our life. We should not get ourselves into things we don’t understand. The best way to make better decisions in life is to have knowledge of the things we are venturing to.
“Aral muna bago invest“. This is one of my favorite quote from one of the well-known financial guru, Aya Laraya.
And this is true. Sad to say, many Filipinos fall on trap because they are blinded by the ‘returns’ or ‘rewards’ that was promised to them.
If you want to be successful, you need to start within yourself. Investing in yourself is the best investment above all investment instrument and will definitely give you the highest returns than any other investment vehicle available.
You’ll not only increase your chance of success but it will surely make you a better person. The #1 secret every successful person revealed. Invest in yourself first!
On the book I read, 7 Habits of highly effective people, Stephen Covey insists that the first approach or strategy to be successful in everything is to start with our self. The “inside-out approach” as what he called.
This book is awesome and there so much to learn! This is one of the best books I read so far.
Every Filipino dream a better life. A brighter future with their family. To spend quality time with them, own a house, a business or the best investment, a car, to travel and much more.
Whatever your goal may have, the first step to getting there is to invest in yourself. There are so many ways on how we can invest ourselves and to gain the right knowledge and information that can help us make a better decision for our lives.
We should always remember that knowledge is power. But knowledge without action is useless.
Here are some tips that you can do to increase your education and knowledge and make better decisions in life.
GO BACK TO SCHOOL OR ENROLL IN TRAINING INSTITUTIONS
Even if we are already graduated and working, one of the best investment we can have to improve our lives is to go back to school or enroll for a specific training. This may cost money upfront but it will be worthy at the end.
You may enroll in specific courses which can lead you to more opportunities and could bring more success to your life. Say you want to enroll a business course or training course on how to start a business.
You are increasing your chance of success because you’ll gain more knowledge and information that you can use when you started. Or you can get your Masters degree so you can apply for a higher position in your company.
Whatever goals you aim, going back to school for more deeper knowledge and information can really boost success in your life.
A good example I want to share is when I enrolled in CCNA Training Bootcamp. CCNA is Cisco Certified Network Associate. I invest my hard-earned money and time to be a Cisco Certified. Luckily I was able to make it.
I am now a CCNA. Though it costs so much time and money upfront (training and certification exam), after the training and passing the exam I was able to get the job I want.
Not only that, my salary increase almost 100%. I learned and equipped myself the right knowledge for the job I want and now I’m reaping the results of my investment.
There’s a lot of seminars available that you can attend to gain specific knowledge and information. Paid and free seminars are available in our country.
You just need to invest some pesoses and your time and I’m sure you’ll have more idea in whatever venture you’re getting into. This is one of the best investment we could venture before entering to any other kind of investment.
For example, when I heard about investing in the stock market I search online for a seminar available to gain more knowledge about it. I just don’t invest right away. I invest in myself first.
Luckily my stock broker company offers a FREE seminar about the stock market. I scheduled online and attended that seminar. It’s one of the best decision I made for myself. And one of the best seminar I attended.
I gain so much knowledge and information about investing in the stock market. I attended 2 seminars with them before I started investing in the stock market.
