"Ordinary people think merely of spending time. Great people think of using it."
What kind of life are you living today? Is it everything youve ever wished it could be or maybe a little less than you hoped for instead? Is your life an action packed adventure filled with fun and excitement or could it use a little boost, especially in the fun and excitement department? In a nutshell, are you going for it with all youve got or not?
If youre not having the time of your life, whats holding you back? Are you afraid of making mistakes? Are you worried about taking a risk or taking chances? Are you scared of falling short or failing to make the grade? More often than not, those are precisely the reasons why many people lose out in the game of life. Rather than take charge of their lives, they sit and watch the precious lives they wished they could live slide slowly out of sight
"A second ago is gone, and a second from now might be. Now is all youve got. Go for it!"
Lyn St. James
It seems as though some people never understand that their most prized possession is their time. Instead of enthusiastically squeezing out all of the good times and good things life offers us all, they constantly put off, delay and procrastinate leaving a trail of things left undone, unmade and unsaid. Instead of living life to its fullest, they live a life unfulfilled.
Instead of going for it with everything theyve got, they put forth a second rate effort at best. Rather than make the most of their moments on earth, they tend to trudge around in second gear, going nowhere particularly fast. Second by second, minute after minute, hour upon hour the lives that they could have, should have and wished they would have lived fade away, becoming little more than lost dreams and distant memories.
"Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever."
Without a doubt, frittering away our time is the biggest mistake any of us can ever make. After all, we are only granted so many minutes on earth. And none of us knows for certain exactly how many well get to enjoy. A moment from now our time on earth could come to a close. And if those last moments were upon us, be it today, tomorrow or even next week, could we go knowing that we did our best and had made a difference?
How we use or abuse these invaluable gems can oftentimes spell the difference in living the lives that we love or merely just living. A wasted minute here and a squandered minute over there will eventually add up to days, months or even years down the drain. But a minute wisely invested over here and another over there, where you constantly seek to squeeze all of the fun and excitement you can out of life, can ultimately lead to a lifetime of achievement, fulfillment and happiness beyond your imagination.
"A man who dares to waste one hour of life has not discovered the value of life."
In your short time here on earth, why not make the most of your moments and start having the time of your life in the process? From this point forward, you must never allow even one day to pass you by again. I urge you to love every second, enjoy every minute and embrace each hour of every day with all of the energy, enthusiasm and eager anticipation you can generate. When you start seeing each day for what it truly is a beautiful, irreplaceable, priceless gift from God youll appreciate the importance of seizing the day.
You must never allow yesterdays mistakes or missteps to dampen your mood or temper your excitement for TODAY. And you can never permit yesterdays problems to rob you of all of the joy a new day provides. Instead of wasting even one more day, why not choose to live life to the max doing your best while enjoying the best life has to offer as well?
"I asked God for all things, that I might enjoy life. God gave life, that I might enjoy all things."
Samuel Butler said, "He has spent his life best who has enjoyed it most. God will take care that we do not enjoy it any more than is good for us." Its time to get your rear in gear and start enjoying life one second, one minute and one hour at a time.
The Bottom Line: If you're ready to have the time of your life, it's ready for you right now.
