The Power of Investing: Tips for Living a Peak Performer’s Life

walterbond_webThere is more to investments than just money. When it comes to your career, you can invest in your job search, your education, and your experience. And according to former professional basketball player and motivational speaker Walter Bond, solid investors understand that they have to be patient with their investments. Reaching your goals takes time and commitment, so do your homework and consider your options before you invest. Walter also advises not to invest all you have into one option. Finding a job takes effort and time, so make sure you’re investing your hard work into more than one opportunity. How much you put into your job search and career goals impacts how much you’ll take away in the end.

“There are two kinds of people we need to consider – there are producers and there are consumers. Producers are the people we call ‘haves.’ Consumers are the people we call ‘have-nots.’ So, ask yourself the question, ‘What group do I want to be in?’”

As part of his year-long series of motivational messages, Walter Bond discusses the importance of patience, solid investments, perseverance, and more. Check out the full message below.
