Time is all we have… this moment, right now. There’s only one thing in our lives that we’re that we are never able to require once it is gone, and I am talking about money, I’m not talking about material items, I’m talking about TIME. And it’s such a unique concept, unique idea because when utilized correctly it contains the ingredients to success, to happiness, to growth, prosperity all the things we want, but at the very same TIME, if neglected it leaves us with very little.
The Value of TIME
The truth is every morning when you wake up, you are living minutes you will never get back. You are breathing air you will never take in again. It is your one opportunity to embrace this gift, and every second sees a little of it slip away, and my point is that there is no moment more important, more perfect than right now. Now in a week, not after your promotion, not in 30 years when you plan to retire and relax.
RIGHT NOW! See, we have this mentality that the future is going to somehow mean more than the present, that if we suffer now, or if we’re unhappy now that’ll we’ll save the best in life for “some other time”.
But the reality is: we don’t get younger. Yes, we should be working hard, absolutely success comes from effort hard work, dedication persistence, But the key is allocating your precious time to the work, to the things that make you feel like today is powerful, that right now is so amazing you don’t want it to end today is when you take the first step toward the things you want when you become who you want to become.
No one is ever or ever going to keep you from that, other than yourself. There is no ceiling, there are no limitations, there are no special requirements. There is you, and what you allow yourself to accomplish. You are the gatekeeper, you have your foot on the gas pedal. And it’s so easy to point to others, right? To point to our environment, to blame things on everything but our own decision. Our decision to stick to the status quo. Because believe it or not, it is that simple you are where you are because that’s where you’ve decided to be.
And you’ve accepted that as okay. Look, if you want change then manufacture change, create a plan and move.
GO! TRANSFORM! Step out of your head, and into the real world. Think about how lucky we are to be alive in this day in age with access to all the information we could ever dream of. Technology that enables growth. Freedom to pursue any path that looks appealing! Anything we could ever want! Is right in front of us. Yet we don’t embrace it, why? Why in the world would we let that be?
Nothing is more important in life than living it! Nothing makes us feel more energized, more free, more happy then following the path we were meant to take. It’s having the courage to step over the obstacles, To face the challenges, to be uncomfortable. And at the beginning its though right? Change is tough, getting what you want isn’t easy.
There’s a period of struggle of growth. But: once you get through it, you understand what living really is. Which brings us right back to the concept of time, our small existence on this planet.
The greatest gift a human being can receive. You, by default, have it. Don’t ever let that be in vain. The future isn’t when happiness “someday” occurs. It’s a continuation of you living every moment to the fullest. From now until your last. Make every trip around the sun better than the previous, never let a moment of sunshine, clouds or rain deprive you of your gift.
Be the best version of yourself you can be. Live the life YOU were meant to live. All it takes is a simple decision.”
