April is financial literacy month and every Legend I know will tell you that being financially responsible has played a major role in their success. In addition to the basics (i.e., budgeting, paying the bills on time, and living within their means), Legends understand the importance of making financial investments in themselves and in their goals. That is, Legends very often make a conscious effort to spend their money in ways that will directly benefit them in the future; and understand that although the benefits may not always be immediate, wise financial investments have the potential to pay off greatly in the future.
The financial investments Legends make in themselves create new possibilities, expose them to new ideas, sharpen their minds, strengthen their bodies, and contribute to their success in ways that outweigh any monetary sacrifice.
On your journey towards becoming a Legend it is inevitable that you will have will have to make a financial investment in one or more of the following areas:
Additional Training Relevant to Career
Investments (e.g., stocks, etc)
Mental Health Care
Coaching (e.g., financial coach, fitness coach, career coach, or life coach)
When you think about your journey towards becoming legendary, specifically as it relates to the financial investments you make in yourself and in your goals, ask yourself the following questions:
Do I currently manage my finances in a way that would allow me to make financial investments in accomplishing my goals?
When is the last time I have made a financial investment in my goals?
In what area listed above would it be most beneficial for me to make a financial investment?
What financial decisions can I make today in order to make an investment in my goals?
