Investing your money, your time, and knowledge builds the world around you.
Investment is one of those concepts that is usually associated with money. However, I think it should be stretched to every aspect of a person's life. First, I think everyone should learn how to investment their money in the stock market, business venture, and other people. In my short period of time, I have come to find out these three areas provides the biggest return on investment. Their effects can go on for generations. Warren Buffett’s states, “Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.” I think this is true in all aspects of life. If you invest into a marriage, a friendship, or an employer-employee relationship with this thought, many more people will be successful. When the world shuts down on you; you will continue to grow and become more successful.
Benjamin Franklin states that "an investment in knowledge pays the best interest." I would like to go a step further to state that the application of knowledge is even better. Jim Rohn discussed this principle in-depth. I think it is highly important that people obtain the most amount of information possible. However, I think it is even more important for a person to apply the obtained information to their lives as well as those around them. Invest in yourself; you can afford it. Trust me. Rashon Carraway. As one invest in themselves, they invest in those around them. Essentially, investing your money, your time, and knowledge builds the world around you. The return on investment is insurmountable and long lived. As you know better, you do better.
