“Six hundred and seventy-two hours of inner work to profoundly improve every waking moment of the rest of your life is quite a bargain, don’t you think? Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you.” ~ Robin Sharma from The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

Tough Economy? Invest In Yourself

“Six hundred and seventy-two hours of inner work to profoundly improve every waking moment of the rest of your life is quite a bargain, don’t you think? Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you.” ~ Robin Sharma from The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

Brilliant. Invest one month of your life to truly LIVE the ideals you’re studying. Six hundred and seventy-two hours of your life to affect the REST of your life and EVERYONE in it. Seems like a great investment to me. You?

So... that begs the question: to what do YOU need to commit a month? Is it getting up early? Making time for your kids? Making time for your self in the morning? A meditation practice? Working out? (All of the above? :)

(I hope you don’t say “shucks” or what follows but... :) You might say “Ah, shucks. I’m just way too busy to invest time in this stuff.”

Where will I find the 15-30 minutes for meditation? The 30-60 minutes for exercise? The time for journaling? For scheduling my priorities into my days?

Robin likes to say that suggesting you’re too busy to slow down and invest in yourself is like saying you’re too busy driving to stop for gas. MAKES NO (!!) SENSE!!!

Your car needs to be re-filled with gas. YOU need to re-fill your soul with mojo.

So: Commit to living your ideals. One month. Rock it.
