Do you remember graduating from school?

Were you like me and thought, “YES!!!  I am NEVER going back to school and I am NEVER going to read another non-fiction book AGAIN. It’s all novels from here on out”?

In all truth, I went for a long time without even opening up any books.

I was absolutely DONE with school, and books, and tests, and deadlines.

I had gone nonstop through school for about twenty years. That is preschool through a Masters Graduate Degree.

Little did I know that life is full of learning and tests and deadlines.  It just looks different.

And little did I know that it is the most successful people who never stop studying and learning.

There came a time when I knew that there were some things that just weren’t working in my life. I needed help!!!

I went looking for that help. And what I found was that the people I want to be like are the ones who never stop learning. They never stop reading, nor do they ever stop seeking coaching.

I learned that the average Millionaire reads at least one non-fiction book a month and the average Billionaire reads double that or more.

I knew that the current path I was on wasn’t working and I needed to do something different.

What if I looked to the people I want to be like and do what they do?

And when I looked, I saw people who are avid readers and people who invest in themselves through coaching.

Simple, right? Yes, actually, it is.

The first step I took was that I committed to going back to my childhood prolific reading ways. I turned off the TV and started reading again. I started with novels to get the habit of reading warmed up and then I started going back and forth between fiction and non-fiction.

Reading has become a welcome reprieve in my day when it was once an assignment I resented.

Then I started going deeper into coaching.

I try to set aside one hour a day to learning and coaching.

 
 


 

Coaching can look like a number of things.

I often listen to audios or watch videos of my personal coach, Dani Johnson.  I have a number of courses and ebooks I am working through on writing and blogging. And I have a growing stack of leadership books I am working through.

It seems like a lot and, I guess, it is. But, one hour a day is doable.

 I’m worth it.  My future is worth it.

Since I started doing this one simple task each day, the path I was on has changed and is now going in a much better direction.

Do YOU invest in yourself through reading and coaching? Do you want to get started?

If so, I have a present for you.

I have created a printable to make YOUR daily coaching sessions even better. Print it out, take notes, and make an action plan.

I know you have goals. Get to work and make them happen.

Investing in yourself will always be the BEST investment. Click To Tweet
