This made me reflect on how much money I have spent over the years on my education since I left University. I often hear people say they have spent $50K, $100K or more. I just did a quick rec and I am in the $100K+ category. Oh and that does not include a huge amount on books, tapes and CDs.
I did my first personal development course in 1978 and I remember it was $900. Now $900 back then was a huge amount of money. I have continued to spend on ongoing education over the years. Right now I am on a steep learning curve on internet marketing and social media. I love it except for the technical side.
My education since Uni has been mixed. I have done many personal development courses in various formats. I have also attended workshops and seminars on wealth creation, property, internet marketing, share trading, sales, marketing, training to train, speed reading, leadership and the list goes on…
I sometimes wonder who I would be had my journey not taken me down this path. I was also privileged to work with a company that promoted some leading educators for a number of years. This time was continual learning and I got to hang out with some amazing people.
For me personal development is the most important. All the share trading, property investment and “how to” courses in the world will not help you if you do not like yourself. Your self esteem and how you feel about yourself is key.
