position yourself for the future

One of the most common catchphrases that goes around in the personal development world is “Learn more to earn more.” And there’s great truth to it. 

In your current profession, there’s a chance that you may be already maxed out at your current knowledge and skill level. In other words, the amount of money that you’re earning is the maximum you can earn right now. Unless you learn something new and different, and continue implementing it. 

In this information age, the rub is that the knowledge, expertise, and experience that you have accrued over the years is becoming obsolete day by day. As Brian Tracy points out, “The knowledge in your field is doubling every three to five years. That means that you must constantly learn more and your knowledge must double every three to five years just for you to stay even.”

The solution to this constant and unavoidable upgradation and restructuring is continuous self-development and personal growth. As Robin Sharma says, “To double your income, triple your investment in self-development.” Warren Buffett, one of the wealthiest people in the world, also instructs, “The best investment you can make is in yourself. The more you learn, the more you earn” As I have said before, you are your best asset. You must continually invest in yourself if you want to enjoy perennial returns, it’s as simple as that. 

When you build yourself, you don’t have to worry about stock market crashes, recession or inflation. By engaging in constant personal development, you take charge behind the wheels of your own life. No matter what direction the economy goes, you position yourself for the future by developing the necessary knowledge and skills that equip you to become an important and invaluable part of the marketplace.
