When you think of the word asset, you think of things that are tangible and real. An asset, is something that puts money in your pocket. A liability is something that takes money from your pocket. There is an asset that is the greatest of all assets. That asset is your mind.
There is a battle for the mind. It is where all decisions take place. I read an advertisement on the side of a bus that said “corporations control your mind”. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something, including yourself. Obviously, there are certain physical limitations. However, success begins in the mind and so does failure.
Your mindset is your asset. It can help you live a life of fulfillment or a life of regrets. Personally, I have had my share of regrets, personally and financially. But, what you think about, you bring about. Unfortunately, much of society prefers to have their thinking done for them. No matter what investments you have on the stock market, your best investment will always be your mind.
There is an old adage that says a mind is a terrible thing to waste. How many people do you know who are wasting their minds? Instead of using our minds as an asset, we are turning them into liabilities. The name of the game is control. The control we give, the more control we lose. In conclusion, your mind is your asset. It is the vehicle in which you can create personal change. Use your asset to think and decide for yourself. Your mind is a tool that will work for you. If you neglect it, it will work against you.
