Invest $4 to receive $96 back

The ultimate leverage for a healthy life: invest $4 and get back $96. How good does that sound to you? Do the math; it is a 24,000% return!! Imagine going to Las Vegas with those odds in your favor, I don’t think they would have the money left to build anymore big resorts. What about investing money in the stock market? You invest $4 and you get back $96, again a 24,000% return! Won’t be too long before you are purchasing a second home and an island to put it on.
When we think in terms of examples like these, it is clear to see the power of the investment. But invest 4% of our day (ONE hour) to give yourself the other 96% (23 hours) of being more productive, less stressed and able to enjoy a deeper more restful sleep, some will still turn away, citing everything from “I don’t have enough time” to “it’s just not for me.”
How can it be that on one hand someone understands the math, but fails to make the connection to something very similar? I’m not sure I have the answer to that question, but I do hope I see the shine of light bulb above your head because maybe for the first time you see how it can benefit you.
