So my 20’s wasn’t so great. I made lots of mistakes, and I am glad I did. I wanted to be liked by everyone, even those who did not care about me. I had dreams, which I wanted to achieve, but those surrounding me were not in line with my vision. My tribe wasn’t what I wanted to be. I was a lion surrounded by cats. I had to roll with other lions. Where do I find those lions? How can I be a better lion? So, on October 2015, I made up my mind to make my 30’s great. Trust me the start wasn’t so easy. I had to rid myself of drama and friends who weren’t progress talking. I was tired of listening to the same crap. So I decided to start something new. Buying books. Yes!! I became addicted to buying books. Not just any type of books, books on leadership development, finance and investing, Christian living and more. When I had the spare time, I would read a page or 2. This year (2017), I bought over 120 books to build my library. I bought couple of books here and there from 2015-2016, before I became a book junkie in 2017. People ask me if I will read them all, and my answer is yes. So for 2018, my ultimate goal is to spend at least 30 minutes each day reading a book or working on my personal development. Lately I have been so intrigued on finance and investing. After reading “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, I started practicing what the book told me to. I am also taking an online course on investing for beginners. It sounds overwhelming, learning about money and letting your money work for you. On the other hand, I am also working on developing my writing skills.
One of the greatest investments I have ever made in my 30’s is investing in me.
