Why investing in you is the best money you'll ever spend..
How much money do you spend on your car?
How much money do you spend on holidays?
How much money do you spend on a haircut?
I'm guessing a fair bit...
I do too.
I was thinking about this the other day and it freaked me out.
Add it all up , it's a lot of money.
What is the most important thing you own?
....yes it's your brain.
Do you invest in your brain?
Would you spend $20,000 on your brain?
I'm guessing no.
I don't know many people who would.
Yet we happily spend this on a small car.
What if you were offered a free car for your brain would you swap?
Without a brain we are no longer alive.
According to The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing (NSMHWB) ,almost half the total population (45.5%) experience a mental health disorder at some point in their lifetime.
One in five, or 20% of the Australian population aged 16-85 years, experienced mental disorders in the previous 12 months.
This is equivalent to 3.2 million Australians.
This was the last comprehensive study to have been done in Australia and it was back in 2007.
These stats are mind blowing, especially when mental health related issues is costing
us about $4,000 per person per year.
Australians put their mental health very low on their priority list.
We only seek help if something has gone seriously wrong.
We upgrade our phones, computers, clothes, cars and houses regularly,
We need to upgrade our mental health.
We are never taught in school how to manage our thoughts and emotions.
How many times do we hear that someone has 'hurt' someone else's feelings?
It's actually not possible.
The only person who can hurt your feelings is you.
Someone's words can't hurt you, they are just words.
It's your thoughts about those words that is causing you to feel hurt.
It is never what someone has done.
We spend a life time blaming others.
What if you knew how to look after yourself....your emotional self.
Humans are driven by how they feel.
What if you took the power back ,
the power to be in charge of how you feel,
therefore how you show up in the world and the results you create.
What if I told you you could create any result you like?
You could lose weight forever, have better relationships and earn more money...
Would you spend $20,000?
I have learned the most incredible tools to manage my mind and create so many
things in my life.
The freedom I feel from all the stuff going around and around in my brain
was worth every single cent.
I'm no longer in default mode.
I live my life on purpose.
You don't have to spend $20,000,
but what is it worth to you?
