"Never Go Broke" Original Canvas Wall Art by IKONICK
"You'll never go broke investing in yourself."
Wealth doesn't build sitting in a bank. You have to put it where it can multiply. Research where there is the most growth potential, and put your money in the hands of those who can build upon it.
It’s about patience and strategy. It might take years or even decades to see a return. But as Warren Buffet advised, "Only buy something that you'd be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years."
Of course, there are some who aren't up for the risk. They want a sure thing, and won't part with their money for anything less. So they seek out information that could help, and they go all-in. But that's why insider trading is illegal: It takes the unknown out of the equation and ruins the market.
You want a sure thing? Invest in yourself. At least then, you're in control. You determine your own trajectory in life, so rather than hoping some board of directors makes all the right decisions, it's on you.
Think of your career as its own company. When you first start off, it's small. Only you. No reputation, no capital, nothing but potential. So you start investing. Maybe you go to school and get a degree. Or you decide to study a new skill on your own that will open doors down the road. It all adds to your value. See where the market is going and put yourself in a position to thrive in that new direction.
Every dollar and hour you put into improving your station in life pays dividends. Every setback better prepares you for challenges down the road. Every skill you acquire adds to your qualifications. Your stock only goes up.
No one can control the market—not even Warren Buffet. There are always forces out of your control. But if you invest in yourself, your fate will always be in your own hands.
"Never Go Broke" original canvas wall artwork from IKONICK illustrates the number one sure-fire investment in life: You. Keep that in mind, prioritize your future, get in on the stock early, and ride the wave.
