Invest In Your Self!
My first impression was that this was just a marketing gimmick to get me to buy the service I was contemplating.
It really turned me off.
I felt like my intelligence was being insulted and I moved on and dropped the product "like a hot potato."
Then, several years later, I heard this very same comment come from a mentor I had been following closely.
It startled me, but since the idea came from someone whose gifts and knowledge I respected, I settled down and gave her a chance to explain herself.
It was quite simple, really.
Invest in yourself and it will come back to you in ways you can't even imagine.
I knew she was right.
Even investing in myself when there is no exchange of cash involved will come back to me in amazing ways.
I was not interested in what she was offering, but hearing that she was asking for more than a paying client, that she was asking for someone to be brave enough to invest in themselves, put it all into perspective for me.
Several months ago, when I had manifested enough money, I invested in several things meant to help me step into the next phase of my business as well as my personal healing and wellness.
The part of me that was afraid to spend the money "so frivolously" was quite loud.
Then the wiser part of my Self took over, and rationally explained that it was "time for guidance from someone who knows."
I moved forward and spent the money, with great courage. It was empowering. I was spending this money on my Self and my business. I wasn't being frivolous.
It has come back to me in many beautiful and amazing ways, spiritually AND financially.
