Noted success guru, Brian Tracy, famously said for every dollar you invest in your personal development you add thirty to your bottom line. $30 earned for every dollar spent, not a bad return!
Frankly I think his math is light. Every time I've invested in my personal development and then applied what I've learned, I've earned far more than $30-to-$1. It's when I haven't applied what I've learned that it's a negative.
The greatest salespeople, companies and athletes in the world hire the most expensive coaches, consultants and advisors. Why? Because they know that investing in themselves is what got them to where they are, and they know they need to keep doing it to grow and stay at the top of their game.
Here's the point, the more you invest in yourself, the more life will pay you back. Your success, or lack thereof, is largely determined by the investment and commitment your willing to make in yourself.
Most people, and I mean the overwhelming majority, are not willing to put the extra effort in. That's why they're doomed to a life of mediocrity. Jim Rohn would say, “If you want to have more, you have to become more. You have to grow into your goals.” It's your choice, invest in yourself or die with the rest.
