When we personally invest of ourselves in something, the outcome of the effort is much greater. A greater value is created. Typically, something or someone drew us in to emotionally engage as an investor.
When personally invested, you are inspired to give of yourself. You want to be accountable for the outcome of the effort. You’ll happily lead and follow with others having the same level of personal investment.
Great individuals, teams, organizations and communities are derived from personal investments being made. The effort remains to be interesting and compelling. Recognition of effort, progress and success abound. We are all in, it’s personal. Success becomes inevitable.
“When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute.” — Simon Sinek —
