Self investment is something that I’ve started to focus on a few years back and I’m so grateful that I did. I’m honestly recommending doing this to everyone I know.
After all, YOU are the most important person in your life. As long as you’re healthy, happy and focused on your goals, things will go as planned: your productivity will boost, all of your relationships will improve and you’ll get to reach the lifestyle you’ve been dreaming of.
The best thing you can invest in after all, is not an object, is yourself.
But, how to do it? Why is it so important?
You’ll find out in the article below. Are you ready to start your exciting journey towards becoming the best version of yourself?
1. What is self investment?
Actually the definition is quite simple. It’s really when you decide to invest energy, finances and time in yourself. It doesn’t matter if you do it in order to develop yourself, to improve a skill or to enjoy life more.

2. Why is it important? ⭐️
Let me give you a good example here. Let’s say that you invest in a business, and start buying professional equipment, employing good people, improving the schedule, taking good care of its image. Your business will start growing. The quality of its services will get higher and the profit will also grow with time. You will now have a high class business that everyone appreciates and aspires to have.
However, if you wouldn’t have invested anything, the business would’ve remained at the same level it started.
It’s literally the same thing with self investment.
As long as you take good care of yourself you will grow higher and higher. Your skills and qualifications will improve and you’ll finally become the best version of yourself.
3. ETM – Energy, Time, Money ✔️
These are the three most important investments you can make in yourself. Each and every single one of them has its impact and importance in your lifestyle.
Energy – If you invest your energy in yourself, you’ll be able to focus on you much more. Your productivity will increase and the results of your work will improve significantly.
Time – It’s important to use your time very wisely. Remember that we only have limited time in this life. Clear your schedule and think about what YOU want to do. Use your time in order to perfect this version of yourself.
Money – Of course finances are important. We live in the 21st century after all. Use your money wisely and invest some of them in yourself. There are a few things that only money can buy and they for sure will improve your lifestyle.
4. Energy for YOU 💡
How can you invest energy in yourself? There are for sure many ways, but let me give you some examples.
You can go for a run in the morning. This way, you’ll use your energy in a productive and healthy way. Not only you get a chance to clear your mind, but you can also work on your figure.
However, if you’re not into running you can try any other sport. Yoga, swimming, gym training, there are so many options. And all of them will have an amazing impact on your lifestyle.
5. Time for YOU ⌛️
Sometimes, your schedule is literally full from 8am in the morning until evening time or late at night. I get it, we’ve all been there. However, you absolutely need to invest some time in yourself. Take a few days off and go on a trip. I went on a couple of life changing trips in 2021 and it’s the best decision I’ve taken this year.
You can also spare a few hours in order to read a book, watch a movie, listen to some music. All of these recreational activities will help your creativity and productivity grow. You need to relax from time to time in order to achieve your true potential.
6. Money Investments 🌟
Money can buy loads of things. However, if you really want to use them wisely, you should always invest a bit in yourself.
For instance, you can invest in your appearance. In order to be successful you have to look successful. Take care of yourself!
You can invest in programs and courses that will help you perfect one of your skills. You can buy some self development books you wanted to read.
Moreover, you can buy some professional equipment that will make your work much more easier (a new laptop or a professional camera).
All of these things will help you on your way to success.
All things considered, it’s crucial to think about yourself. What’s your favourite way of self investment and why? Slide in my Instagram DM’s ( @notagirlygal ) and let me know.
