The term “investing” triggers thoughts of high-yield saving accounts, stocks, and other highbrow banking terms that send several individuals into a frenzy. Well, let’s be clear. Investing doesn’t necessarily mean committing your funds with the hope of a return. It can also mean spending effort and quality time to make something better.
The best offer or gift you can give to yourself is to invest in yourself. This move can make your life better and cost little to nothing.
Investing in yourself will boost your confidence in your abilities and positively impact your self-esteem. Investing in yourself will also equip your skills and new knowledge and make you focus on your personal development to get to know yourself better.
A story is told of an artist and intuitive healer from Southern California named Marilyn Julia Brown. Her life could have been described by this one word as -‘chaotic.’ Whether it was upbringing, search for a career, or relationship, everything seemed to be heading south. This woman was fast losing strength. However, through her difficult situation, she found a silver lining.
When she finally decided to join the private practice sector in 2014 and founded his company ‘A Mindful Way Counseling,’ her eyes opened. She first called it to quit, the unhealthy, emotionally abusive relationship that had become cancer to her soul, let alone her mind. Her diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis is what sent her to think, “what if I invested in myself?”
Since her diagnosis, her physical wellness has become a bigger priority which led her to finally join a yoga studio in a bid to advance her self-investment. Notably, she fell in love with the practice and has since completed her 200-hour training to become a yoga teacher.
Marilyn did not stop there. She wanted to help others invest in themselves and become the better versions of themselves to live their dreams. So she founded Liberated Well, LLC in 2022 to offer accessible resources for soul, mind, and body wellness.
As a certified reiki master and crystal healer, Marilyn has successfully treated her clients’ lifelong trauma and addictive behavior patterns using her energy healing tools. She believes that every person has a healing energy that lives within them, hence the need to tap into this power. Marilyn also recognizes that people who live in marginalized identities and who lack financial resources are often told they aren’t entitled to invest in themselves creating even more barriers to healing.
But why is it essential to tap into this power?
Investing in yourself will broaden your perspective, which is a central factor in determining how you see things or give meaning to your experiences. Additionally, you will increase your self-confidence and create possibilities. You will be able to face anything under the sun, take risks, and set better goals. This will help you develop an open mind and develop your skills and knowledge.
Investing in yourself can make you have a feeling of accomplishment. Often if we don’t invest in ourselves, we don’t feel like we deserve it. Therefore, whether it is working towards your health and fitness goal through that yoga class or taking the path Marilyn took, the message is clear. You are improving your overall outlook on life.
