Why Investing In Yourself Can Help You Achieve Your Financial Goals

Concordia University

If we were to have a conversation about your dreams and aspirations, I'm almost certain they would include you attaining success in your career or business and with your finances. This is what many of us want but it doesn't just happen. You have to make it happen.

If you take a look at the top 1% in a particular area, industry or field, you'll find that they all have a common trait - they never stop learning and growing. In other words, the top 1% place a very high priority on their personal development. 

"The top 1% place a very high priority on their personal development."

Personal development is about continuously improving your skills and qualities over time so you can perform at your highest potential. Developing yourself is something that should never stop and can happen through a variety of avenues for example reading books, taking a class, participating in a conference, seeking out a mentor, amongst other things.

When you come to a point in your life where you deem yourself successful, it means that you have discovered your "personal place". It's all about growth, connection, encouragement,  knowing yourself better and knowing what strategic steps it takes to succeed. 

That being said, I recently took a personal development course with Concordia University that I highly recommend and wanted to share with you because it was such a great course.

It's a free course called "How To Create Your Personal Space", is delivered to your inbox, and takes about 1 week and 3 - 4 hours to complete. It consists of essays, videos, interactive polls, and download journals. Plus all the content from this email course is taken from Concordia University Wisconsin's 100% one-year Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership and Administration (OLA). An OLA is an alternative to an MBA that focuses on your personal growth and a leadership potential. Learn more about the LOA here and here
