I came across this phrase as I was scrolling through Twitter, “if you want to invest in something with minimum risk and a guaranteed big return, invest in yourself”
Investing in yourself is one of the best returns on investments you can have. I know that if you’re reading this, it’s because you are someone who cares. If you want to help others, first you need to help yourself.
Why is investing in yourself is so powerful and important?
Because it allows you to become the best version of yourself – spiritually, mentally, and financially. If you invest in yourself, great opportunities come to you and people are more likely to invest in you. It helps you to think and focus on what really matters to you which improve the quality of your life.
And the best thing? It doesn’t require much money! Here I’d like to share 6 amazing and simple ways to invest in yourself that can become your best investments.
According to a research, reading for just six minutes can reduce stress levels by 68%. Reading is an awesome way to build your knowledge and expertise in any area. Dr. Seuss said it best: “you can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.”
Millionaires and successful businessmen always recommend reading books. Because books give you the power to explore new things and believe in yourself. When Elon Musk was asked how he has learned to build rockets. He simply replied, “I read books.”
Read books, Kindle, articles, white papers, or listen audio books – any format you like. Here are a few of my favorite books (in case you find these valuable):

I challenge you to take some time this month to read at least one of these books. It will be fun.
