Whose investment are you?

The fact is, most people work for someone or some organisation.

From the employer's perspective, their employees represent an investment; an asset.

From an employee's perspective, their employer is a means to an end.

That end, for most, unfortunately, is a pay cheque.

A select few, however, are in it for more than a paycheque

They go the extra mile.

They do more than their job description.

They pursue responsibilities that go beyond their job description.

And here’s the little-known secret to success that only a unique number of employees have discovered – going the extra mile is an investment in themselves.

When you do more than your job requires, you grow.


As you grow, you become more valuable.

Not just to your employer, but to every competitor in your industry.

The more you go beyond just earning a pay cheque, the more you learn, the more new people you come into contact with and the more your stock rises.

Going beyond a pay cheque and your job description shifts the investment from your employer to you.

It’s an investment in yourself

And the more you invest in yourself, the more opportunities you create.

That was one of the hallmarks of the self-made millionaires I uncovered in my Rich Habits Study.

One of the self-made millionaires in my study started in the equivalent of the mail room.

He’s now worth in excess of 8 million dollars.

I interviewed him because he had risen to the 2nd in command at a pharmaceutical company in New Jersey.

He somehow uncovered that little-known secret of success.

Tips: If you want to be a success in life you must invest in yourself.

You must take on responsibilities that push you outside your comfort zone.

This discomfort means you are growing.

When you go above and beyond your job description, you are no longer an investment of your employer.

You become your own investment.
