In the financial world, compounding means generating earnings from previous earnings. The more you earn, the more you make. The more you make, the more you earn.

In our day to day world, it can go both ways. It would seem at times when things are going your way, you can do nothing wrong. When it’s “not your day” you feel like the whole world is against you. These are the times when we need to step away and take a deep breath. The last thing we need is us compounding the results by sabotaging ourselves due to our own baggage we bring to the scene.

When we continue to “invest in our future” by engaging in tasks to enrich ourselves rather than pass the time away (TV, surfing social media, etc.) we are making investments into our account which build upon themselves on a daily basis. Those, over time, have a compounding effect (momentum) which can give us the courage to move forward in the face of fear and risk a bit more of ourselves. How else can we learn, grow and evolve?
