Yes, You Should Invest in Yourself, but Not Because Your Life is About You.

I want you to invest in yourself. 

I want you to take time and think about the life you’re living and why you’re on the planet. 

I want you to be a rockstar in your own show. 

But I don’t want you to do that because it’s about you. I want you to do that so that you can give it away to other people.

At the end of the day, I believe the point of life is to give it all away. It’s to share our knowledge, to teach others our skills, to write down the ideas in our heads so that they last and to speak what’s on our mind. 

But here’s why you have to invest in yourself: You cannot give away what you don’t possess.

You cannot empower other people if you feel helpless. You cannot teach someone how to juggle if you’ve never put in the hours (and dropped the ball countless times) yourself. And you can’t help other people to be the star of their own lives if you’re not the star of yours.

After working through each concept of my best-selling book and keynote Life at Performance Level in podcast episodes this summer, we have finally come to the end of our journey. And this last episode is all about striking that crucial balance between investing in yourself and investing in others.

It’s not about self-help; it’s about the ways that others empower us and we empower others to live our dreams and achieve our goals. 

It’s about working hard to gain the skills and the mentality you need to succeed, and then giving it all away so that others can do the same. 

On this episode, you’ll get to hear:

  • The whole point of living your life at performance level
  • Why you need to start thinking about your legacy today (don’t wait!)
  • How to be a life-changing mentor for other people
  • Two men named Tommy who showed me what it means to be a giver
  • Why mistakes are crucial for success
  • The secret to taking time for you without being selfish

Thank you for joining me on this Life at Performance Level journey this summer, and if you haven’t heard all of these episodes, now is the best time to start!
