MONEY, MONEY, MONEY (3 of 3)

I received this investment tip originally over 15 years ago and it has produced a personal ROI (Return On Investment) of many thousands of dollars.

This was the pitch given to me:
“For every $1 you invest in ___________________, it will return $30 to your bottom line.”

That’s 30 to 1!

Even if you are the most experienced investor, where can you get a nearly guaranteed 3000% (or greater, depending on your allocation) on your money?

Compare it to these investment returns over the past several years:
S&P 500: 1.65%
Dow Jones Industrial: 29.49%
Real Estate: -19.47
Bonds: 8.19%
U.S. Treasury: 16.36%

3000% looks better, eh?

Okay, here’s the “insider” investment tip:
Invest in YOU… and your greater personal development.

I’m not just being clever here. I’m serious.

This is what Jim Rohn has taught me:
“Income seldom exceeds personal development.”
Therein lies the key to growing your income—growing yourself.

Let me explain and then I will give you the investment formula I given to me 15 years ago that earned me thousands of dollars…

Here is how this works: The level of success we experience in our outer world is simply the mirror reflection of our self-identity and personal development of our inner world. Period.

Let me use the analogy of a thermostat to make this make sense. Thermostats have what is called a set point—the set temperature of the room. Now no matter what happens outside, hot or cold, the thermostat will kick on the heat or the air conditioner to bring the temperature back to that set point.

Inside of each of us is also a set point. This is your current level of self-worth or personal development. No matter what happens outside you (temporary financial windfall, finally lose those 20 lbs., marriage going well) you will always adjust back (sabotage) to your set points. We ALL do this.

Simply put, you will only ever have, be, do or maintain on the outside what matches your inside set points—your personal development.

When you raise your set points/personal development (self-identity, mindset, attitude, philosophy, skills and abilities), everything in your life will be raised with them.

This is why Jim gave us these pivotal instructions:
“If you want to have more, you have to become more.
For things to change, you have to change.
For things to get better, you have to become better.”

“If you improve, everything will improve for you.
If you grow, your money will grow; your relationships, your health, your business and every external effect will mirror that growth in equal correlation.”

The Multimillionaire Investment Formula

This is the critical investment plan I was taught 15 years ago. Of course take 10% of everything you earn and tithe it to help other people. Then take another 10% and use it to help yourself—invest it in your greater personal development.
