Your Best Investment in the World

Posted By Scott Waldroff, Thursday, August 23, 2018

Your Best Investment in the World

Ever wonder what your best possible investment could be?

Stocks? Bonds? Real Estate? Gold? Mutual funds? Retirement Accounts?

Here’s a tip - it’s from a lecture given by L. Ron Hubbard in February of 1956: 

“The best way to penalize yourself is to start believing everything is scarce and that you’d better save it.

"Every once in a while, I hear some father say to his son, 'Well, I worked and slaved and so forth and finally sent you through to school, bought you nice clothes and set you on your way. And here I am, old and gray.'

"You know, the only answer to that is, 'Why the hell didn't you make more money?'

“I'm afraid that's not very son-like. But really, it's the truth! Papa was making a game out of not creating, in some fashion.

"Now, if you think the money is the end of the effort, you're making a bad mistake there too, because it actually is merely a representation of your creativeness, that's all it is. It merely represents it in some fashion. And if your creativeness is good, you don't have to worry about saving any money.

“Your best investment is your own skill and your ability to put things back together again, your ability to stand on two feet and live - that's your best investment in the world."

Just in case you were wondering.

Your best investment would therefore be in whatever improves:

· ‘your own skill’

· ‘your ability to put things back together again’

· ‘your ability to stand on two feet and live’

What do you do to improve your own skill?

What do you do to improve your ability to put things back together again?

What do you do to improve your ability to stand on two feet and live?

Happy investing!
