Often times we are told that “life is hard.” Most times we hear this from adults who have real problems and we do not exactly relate to what they are saying. When we grow up and take on real responsibilities of life, we slowly start to relate and understand what that phrase is all about.
Life indeed can be one tough son of a bitch. However if your life is one tough son of a bitch, it means you invested your life in the wrong people.
Suri Breaks in one of his YouTube videos once said;
we all technically should have ‘friends with benefits.’
Not sexual benefits. Life benefits. We should all be able to benefit from the people we call our friends to make our lives and theirs better.
The most lifesaving investment anyone could ever make is people. When you invest your life in the right people, you live the best life. Investing in the right people means you have people that will be there for you in any situation – bad or good.
To invest in people, you need to understand what you have to offer the people around you in order to make their lives better. You need to understand your strengths and weaknesses. Use your strength to benefit and help others. Then use your friends’ strengths to help you work on your weaknesses and become a better person.
If you are a drunk and you surround yourself with drunkards – two wrongs don’t make it right, your investment in those people will always return drunken nights. If you are a fashion designer and you invest your skill in dressing friends that are in the spotlight, your investment in those people will return more exposure and business for your skill.
Investing in people is as simple as making sure beyond the fun, wild nights and petty fights, you truly add value to the people in your life. In return, they enrich your life as well. Opportunities often come from connections, friends and contacts. Surround yourself with the right people and your life will never be the same.
Therefore, worry less about stocks and second income, invest in the right people. This is the only investment where you are 99.99% certain that your investment will always return the desirable outcome.
