Investing in You: Nurturing Personal Worth for a Fulfilling Life

June 24, 20242 min read

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it's easy to get caught up in the demands of work, family, and other responsibilities. However, amidst the chaos, it's essential to remember to invest in yourself. Nurturing your personal worth is not only crucial for your well-being but also for leading a fulfilling and satisfying life. 

Here are some valuable tips to help you invest in yourself:

1. Prioritize Self-Care:

Make self-care a non-negotiable part of your routine. Whether it's getting enough sleep, eating well, exercising regularly, or simply taking time to relax and recharge, prioritize activities that nourish your mind, body, and soul.

2. Set Meaningful Goals: 

Take the time to identify your core values, passions, and long-term objectives. Set clear, achievable goals that align with your values and bring you closer to living the life you desire. Break these goals down into smaller, manageable steps, and celebrate your progress along the way.

3. Invest in Learning and Growth:

Commit to lifelong learning and personal development. Whether it's reading books, taking courses, attending workshops, or learning new skills, investing in your growth and development can help you unlock new opportunities and reach your full potential.

4. Practice Gratitude:

Cultivate an attitude of gratitude by focusing on the positive aspects of your life. Take time each day to reflect on the things you're thankful for, whether it's your health, relationships, accomplishments, or the simple joys of everyday life. Practicing gratitude can help shift your perspective and foster a greater sense of well-being and contentment.

5. Surround Yourself with Positivity:

Surround yourself with people who uplift, inspire, and support you. Build a strong support network of family, friends, mentors, and peers who encourage you to be your best self and pursue your dreams.

6. Embrace Failure and Learn from Setbacks:

Failure is a natural part of the learning process. Instead of fearing failure, see it as an opportunity for growth and learning. Embrace setbacks as valuable lessons that help you course-correct and move closer to your goals.

7. Practice Self-Compassion:

Treat yourself with kindness, compassion, and understanding. Be gentle with yourself during times of struggle or difficulty, and remember that you are worthy of love, acceptance, and happiness.

Investing in yourself is not a one-time event but an ongoing journey of growth, discovery, and self-improvement. By prioritizing self-care, setting meaningful goals, investing in learning and growth, practicing gratitude, surrounding yourself with positivity, embracing failure, and practicing self-compassion, you can nurture your personal worth and create a life that is rich, meaningful, and fulfilling.

Remember, you are worth investing in!

I (Sheridan) used to be that visionary business owner with all the balls in the air. I had my master's degree in speech therapy and created a six-figure consulting business in that field. But I didn’t stop there. I created another six-figure business as a health coach, and then one as a business coach for good measure. But the whole time I was trading time for money. I worked a zillion hours a week. Don’t believe me? I have five kids, and in addition to the work stuff, I was an available and committed mother to my children – doing the laundry, ferrying them to activities, and on and on... By outward measures, I looked successful, but on the inside, I was mentally and physically exhausted. I had hit a ceiling in my income and every incremental increase required more from me. I was in constant striving mode, trying to push myself to constantly do more. Until it all fell apart (even typing that makes me quake remembering). I had a major health crisis that caused me to pull the plug on 95% of my business. Almost everything came to a full stop. Which was the best gift I ever received. You see, working hard and learning more skills is not enough. Heart, vision and best intentions are not enough. It’s embarrassing to admit, but I didn’t know what I was doing even though it looked like I did.
