In life we are constantly faced with decisions, some big some small, some seemingly important and unimportant. One of the biggest decisions we make is where we invest our resources.
One of the biggest determining factors in how one does this your definition of “success”. For some, money is important so their career or the stock market are both reasonable investments. And money is important but some hold the value of their health higher. We’ve all met those who declare that they want to get in shape but choose to spend their money and time on a PlayStation rather then spend it on a gym membership or education.
The reality is that we are choosing to invest all the time whether it’s time, money or effort. Many of us just happen to do so unknowingly, we say we want security yet we’ll choose weekends at the beach over a Jiu Jitsu membership or handgun courses. How many of us have gone through our bank statements and been shocked by the thousands of dollars we spent at Starbucks over the course of the year? There’s no right answer but if every decision should lead to an investment that ultimately results in your happiness. Unfortunate this is not the case for many.
For as long as you live there will be a process of:
1. Determining “your success”.
2. Making decisions that contribute towards achievement of your success (Education, savings, etc).
3. Constantly re-evaluate.
Enjoy your investment years and good luck!
