As you start learning and polishing your skills and adding more to your repertoire, you continue to be agile in your thinking and it acts as a confidence booster. This puts you in a positive frame of mind, where you feel relevant in the ever-changing world of technology and innovation.
When Tony Robbins was 17 and earning $40 a week, he spent $35 for a three-hour seminar with personal development coach Jim Rohn. He cursed himself for having to spend his whole weeks earning for a 3-hour seminar, but he did it anyway.
In his own words, “It turned out to be one of the most important investments of my life,” Robbins writes. “He let me in on the ultimate secret. ‘How do you truly become more valuable? Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job.'”
