Invest in People

Teachers invest in people.  They help you learn to study, give you knowledge, impress on you the reasons and importance of why you need to study, they help you achieve goals, they make effort to help you learn.

Doctors invest in people.  They help you stay healthy, help you understand your body, they give you medicine to make you better, they monitor your progress, they want you to grow and enjoy life.

But teachers and doctors are not the only ones who can invest in people.  Each of us can.  Each of us have the same opportunity and ability to invest in others.  But do we?

I received communication from a client a few weeks ago via email after I had shared a blog that I thought the client would be interested in following:

Thank you so much for continuing to invest in me…. I rarely if ever see that!!! and I love it :) Please continue passing along things that you think can help me grow…

What does it take to invest in someone?

I believe it starts with a foundation of common interest about them and their lives.  It takes paying attention to what they are interested in or want to grow in.  It takes sharing and giving.  It takes courage.  It takes time.  It takes an honest attempt to help.  It takes being willing to give and not get anything in return.  It takes wanting them to succeed above all else.  Even before you succeed.

Does it take much?  No, it really doesn’t, but most people focus so much on what they get they don’t give.  They don’t focus on helping others succeed.  They don’t spend time knowing how to learn to grow others, time learning to learn them, time to give.  They don’t invest.  Even in the small things.

May I encourage you today, spend a little bit of time and invest in those around you!
