Ever read this quote?
“If you want to invest in something with minimum risk and a guaranteed big return, invest in yourself.”
Most people nod and agree, but when push comes to shove they don’t do it. They don’t make the investment in themselves. They invest more in wishful thinking than proven systems that work. Then, they punish themselves when they don’t achieve their dreams. They continue to live unhappily instead of setting themselves free with a business they love.
Why Is Investing In Yourself So Important, Anyway?
If you’ve made the decision to follow your bliss and become a successful coach or healer, investing in yourself is one of the best returns you can create, period. And investing in yourself doesn’t just mean adding to your business, skills, education or mindset. It also means to let go. It doesn’t cost you anything to let go of what no longer serves you, but it costs you everything if you keep holding on.
Going through this investment process doesn’t just set you up to make strides with your coaching or healing biz, it gives you the confidence, means and tools to make a powerful impact in others’ lives. That’s why if you want to serve the world, you need to serve yourself first.
Why The Investment Mindset Is The Success Mindset
For example– you decide to run an ad on Facebook. You spend hours tinkering with the copy, hoping to hit the right notes to attract clients who resonate with you. You want people who truly need what you offer and are happy to pay what you’re worth.
You decide to spend $10/day for the ad to run for 1 week. You pick your targeting options and set it free. It’s exciting! You daydream about people liking, sharing and commenting on your ad and clicking “Learn More” to book a session or program with you.
Except you hear nothing but crickets. Day after day, no one engages with your ad. You double check all the settings, in case you made a mistake. But everything looks good. And as time goes on, you see nothing but money being flushed down the drain.
At this point, with no bites, you’ve spent $70 and decide to quit because you’re focusing on the money you’ve spent. You pull the ad and tell yourself that Facebook advertising doesn’t work. And you don’t want to try pay-per-click advertising again.
Someone with an investment mindset has a different perspective. If you’re selling a $1000 (or more) program, you won’t quit after spending $70; you won’t quit after spending $700! Why? Because even after spending that much, when you sell your program, you’re still ahead– you’ve just made a $300 return on your investment. No bank in the world gives you returns like that!
But so many people give up before this point. And if they had just invested a little more time, energy and money, they’d have the success they want. That’s why the investment mindset is also known as the success mindset.
Shifting Your Mindset To Win
If you’ve made the decision to free yourself with a profitable, soul-driven business you love, the success mindset is essential. There will be days that you feel like nothing’s working, but if you’re investing in yourself you’ll have the strength to push through to the other side.
