6. Invest So Much in Yourself, People Will Think You’re Crazy “Every skill you acquire doubles the odds of your success.” - Scott Adams You are your greatest asset. The world’s most successful individuals invest heavily into themselves. This is the reason why athletes like LeBron James reportedly spend $1.5 million dollars a year investing in his health and body. It seems the more successful an individual, the more they invest in themselves. Self-investment begets success, which begets more means (money and influence) to reinvest. If you want world-class success, you’ll need many tools, abilities, and competencies — most of which you might not have yet. This mastery costs money and time. Ordinary people often spend their money and time on “liabilities” — purchases that can’t earn you more income. Extraordinary, world-class individuals constantly spend their time and money on “assets” — purchases that earn you substantial income over time. If you want to be middle-class and average, spend your life buying liabilities. But if you want to be rich and successful, spend your life buying assets.
