5 Reasons Your Future Self Will Thank You!

Updated: Mar 24, 2023

When wondering why you should invest in your career development, here's 5 reasons:

  • 1. Investing in yourself is an act of self-care. It helps you to take time to appreciate and invest in developing your skills and abilities, thus enhancing your self-esteem and quality of life.

  • 2. See yourself as an asset to protect at all costs. Think of investing in yourself as the opportunity to add value to your future self. You can pursue training, hobbies and interests that you may not make money off of initially, but can lead to an eventual positive return on investment from people you meet and skills you learn.

  • 3. Acquire new skills or sharpen the ones you already have. Investing in yourself can help you master or learn a new skill, enabling you to make better use of your talents, choices and resources.

  • 4. Raise your confidence levels. Investing in yourself can boost your confidence and help you take greater control of your life.

  • 5. Prepare for the long term. With deliberate planning and incremental investment, you will lay the foundation for your professional career. Trust me your future self will thank you. By investing in learning new skills, enhancing existing skills, gaining self-awareness with intention, you’ll have better insight of what you want and what you don't want your career and personal brand to be.

In summary, let's recap why it's important to invest in your career development:

  1. It’s an act of self-care.

  2. You are your most valuable asset to protect at all costs.

  3. Master a new skill or sharpen the ones you have.

  4. Take greater control of your career with confidence.

  5. Lay an intentional foundation for your future self to thank you.

You are valuable and uniquely made. Start taking the first step and put in the prep work to compete for career opportunities with IMPACT (Intention.Motivation.Purpose.Action.Confidence.Transformation.)!
