最有价值的投资

因为时差,我在洛杉矶的酒店里坐着睡不着,但是期待着今早的训练。来这里的一个原因,是从上海的生活中透口气,但更重要的是给自己的未来投资!提到投资二字,人们想到的是股票,证券,房地产等等,但是大多数人总是忘记最重要的投资是对自己的投资。更糟的是,很多投资建议者滔滔不绝讲着投资自由,每周在办公桌前坐50-60小时,拿着固定的工资,既没有积极的情绪又没有健康的体魄。成功的投资家沃伦巴菲特和巴西柔术大师约翰韦尔都讲过:最佳的投资是对自己的投资。作为人类,我们必须持续学习和扩展经历,最成功的人对自己的身体,心灵和情绪都有投资。训练巴西柔术,是投资自己的举动之一。从训练中,你得到更多自信,更好的身体状况, 学习自我防护技能,和拥有同样价值观的人建立人际关系!但同时也有很多其他自我投资的方式,例如学习新的语言,环球旅行或者阅读启发性的书。
几天前我看到这样一段有意思的话:“2009年旧金山大学的一个研究证明,花钱在获得体验的人们,比花钱在物质上的人们更加开心。”他们在体验当中和体验之后获得了更多活力。归根结底,有些人花钱换来长期的记忆,有些人换来一时物质快感。一时的?没错。前期研究证明,由于花钱带来的占有快感在6至8周的时间内就会消逝殆尽。因此,将你的钱投资在难忘的经历上,而不是“玩具”上。
接下来在洛杉矶的2周将会安排的满满当当,我打算第一周每天跟 Renzo Gracie 黑带Shawn Williams(很棒的教练,发明 了“Williams 防御”)训练2次,接下来的第二周我会跟巴西柔术世界冠军,MMA世界冠军 Alberto Crane一同训练。
之后我会更新训练的经历,现在是对自我投资的时候了!


The most valuable investment

I a sitting in my hotel room in Los Angeles unable to sleep due to jet lag, but looking forward to begin the first training session today. I am here partly to take a break from my usual routine in Shanghai but more importantly to invest in myself! When people think of investments, they think of stocks, bonds and real estate etc. but most people forget that the most important investment is investing in yourself! To make things worse, most of these financial advisors speak about financial freedom but sit behind a desk 50-60 hours week on a fixed salary and not looking happy or healthy at all! Successful investor Warren Buffet and BJJ master/entrepreneur John Will both said that the best investment is investing in oneself! As human beings we must continue to learn and widen our experiences, it is no secret that most highly successful people invest in themselves physically, mentally and emotionally! When you are learning BJJ, it is an act of investing in yourself! From training, you gain more confidence, better health, learn self defense skills and meet a network of like minded people! But there are also many other ways to invest in your own growth, this can be learning a new language, traveling to see the world or simply reading inspiring books.
Here is something interesting i read the other day: "A 2009 San Francisco State University study showed that people who spent money on experiences were happier with their purchases than those who brought material things. They found greater vitality both during the experience and in reflecting about it afterwards. In essence, some people pay for long term memories, others for temporary material rewards. Temporary? Yes. Previous research has demonstrated that the initial pleasure from a new possession fades within 6-8 weeks So invest your money in an unforgettable TIME, not a toy
The next 2 weeks in LA will be a full schedule, i plan to spend the first week training twice a day with Renzo Gracie black belt Shawn Williams who is an amazing coach and creator of the "Williams guard" and the second week i will be training with BJJ World Champion and MMA Champion Alberto Crane. More updated on my training later, now time to go invest in myself!
