In order to really achieve success, at any age, you need to INVEST in yourself.
That, after all is where it begins – finding whatever it takes to self-think and commit to what you want to do, how you will go about doing it and then ultimately, executing ‘your plan’ to make it all happen.
That commitment will be driven by your attitude and your effort. Looking for a personal ROI comes from subsidizing your own sense of dedication to putting in the time to make things happen on your own behalf.
And, how are you going to get this ‘plan’ structured and moving?
You are going to investigate. You are going to research the market you are interested in and learn as much as you can about it so when time comes to talk to people about opportunities, you will be fluent in their language, and display a real solid understanding that exhibits clear knowledge.
Investigation is the root of the information that will make a difference in how you are perceived as you reach out to people and try and get your career moving forward.
If you invest and investigate, you will have the necessary tool, information, at your fingertips to help you create a solid career path and ultimately get you where you want/need to be.
