My mentor, Jim Rohn, used to call knowledge; “bread for the head.” I love that phrase.
Jim’s message was to invest the money required, to gather the knowledge you need; to feed your mind and become MORE.
- Read the books.
- Listen to the audio programs.
- Attend the seminars.
- Watch the DVDs.
Why? Because whenever you look at the people who fail to invest in their education, you find that they are not doing so good. They are out there right now, wondering when their luck will change. They are living where they don’t want to live. They are getting through life, without getting much from life.
How I fed my head
I started out with a few books my older brother gave me. He took pity on me. I was broke and living in a violent, slum. I had no job. I was sick of being broke and going nowhere. So, I decided to read the books he gave me.
8 years later, I found myself financially secure for life, aged just 29. I was married to my beautiful wife and running my own marketing business. I was waking up each day, just happy to be alive.
To get from broke age 21 to secure for life age 29, I invested thousands in my personal and professional development. I have invested a lot more since then.
Don’t do like Joe & Josephine average
Joe happily invests hundreds on the latest phone each year, but wouldn’t dream of spending the same amount on developing his mind.
Josephine happily invests in her daily skinny latte, during her lunch break from the job she hates, but wouldn’t spend the same amount on feeding her mind so she could get a job she loves.
Feed your mind with the knowledge you need and watch what happens to you in every area of your life. I’m telling you, the results can be, as in my own case, life changing.
