Monday Mojo – Invest in Yourself

Monday Mojo™ – feel-good motivation for the week ahead: Invest in Yourself

Do you ever think about your future?

In a world which is moving so fast, we can easily lose sight of where time – and our aspirations – are going. If you do think about the future, you might wonder if it includes a dream relationship or job. Or simply a place where everyone around you is happy and well; it’s natural to think this way.

But could it include a place where:

Your needs are met.

You put yourself first.

You can say no, and mean it, without feeling guilty?

It’s a tricky one. I mentioned in last week’s mojo that we’re hard wired to be harmonisers. To put others needs before our own. To say yes, when we’d rather not. But where will that lead? You can’t put your future on hold all the time, so that everyone else gets ahead.

So it makes sense that the more you do the things that put a sparkle in your eye, the brighter and shinier your future will be.

This week, set the intention to Invest in Yourself. Explore the website of a local community college for a course you might enjoy, set aside some relaxing ‘you time’, or just find a way to say no when you need to, that you feel comfortable with. Make sure you do something each day which your future self will thank you for.
