American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist Warren Buffet said that investing in yourself is the best thing that you can do. "If you’ve got talent yourself, and you’ve maximized your talent, you’ve got a tremendous asset that can return ten-fold." Heed his words. Here’s how you can add value to yourself.

Discover your strengths.
It’s important to know where you’re good at so you can develop your strengths into valuable skills. Once you know your strengths, you can focus more on how you can make them work for you and your future goals.


Never stop learning.
Whether it’s for your nine-to-five job or your passion for photography, it doesn't hurt to broaden your horizons, as this will only qualify you for bigger and better opportunities. If you’re strapped for cash, there are seminars and classes you can take online for free.


Aim to be better than your old self.
There's always room for improvement, and even if you’re confident enough about your skills now, you should continue working toward a better version of yourself.


Connect with a mentor.
Having someone to guide you is important. It could be your father, an older friend, or someone who has been in your field of work for a long time. Remember, most mentors have gone through a lot and their insights and advice will one day prove to be invaluable.


Be thankful.
There’s power in being grateful. According to Shawn Achor in his TED Talk, taking five minutes each day to list three things you’re thankful for trains your mind to look for the positive.
