Invest in YOU

10 Jul

conference-nsca-2013This week, I’m attending the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) National Conference.  It’s a great opportunity to improve myself through learning, networking, and professional development.

In essence, I’m investing in myself.

If you want to achieve, accomplish, or succeed, you’ll need to develop — and invest in — yourself.

Here are some ways you can invest in yourself.

Discover Your Strengths.  What are you doing when you’re at your best?

Set Goals and Review Your Progress to ensure that you’re on track to accomplish your goal(s).

Get a Mentor to give you objective guidance and perspective.

Develop Your Skills

  • Education – classes, degrees, certifications
  • Training – workshops, conferences, webinars
  • Knowledge – books, articles, blogs

Be Creative.  Try something new – some activity you haven’t explored before

Cultivate Your Mind and Body

  • Read
  • Be open-minded
  • Keep your mind active with word games and puzzles
  • Exercise regularly
  • Fuel your body with healthy foods
  • Allow for adequate rest and recovery
  • See your physician regularly, and when you’re sick
  • Wear clothes that make you feel confident and attractive

Be Thankful

Find Your Purpose.  What drives you?  Why do you do what you do?

Try to do at least one thing, every day, that makes you better and moves you closer to where you want to be.
