"I have one life and one chance to make it count for something."
Life is a nonstop parade of minutes, hours and days - a steady string of magical moments that we can choose to use as we see fit. And the manner in which we use or abuse these irreplaceable moments shape the lives we get to enjoy.
Making the most of our time on earth requires that we make the most of our God given gifts, constantly striving to bring out our very best each and every day. Since life is a one shot deal, a once in a lifetime chance to make our mark and make a difference, doesn't it make sense to make it count for something truly special? "Don't count the days, make the days count."
Rather than wishing it was Friday, the weekend or sometime out in the distance, where the times look better or the grass seems greener, why not choose to make the most of the moment at hand? Instead of counting the days, needlessly squandering away one golden opportunity after another waiting for this or that to happen, why not start happening yourself?
The moment you decide once and for all to stop wishing your life away and begin living life in the here and now, your here and now will all of a sudden take on new meaning and extra excitement while becoming much more fulfilling almost overnight. Instead of wishing it was Friday afternoon on Monday morning, why not find ways to make the days in between the best days you've ever lived?
Hey, don't start making excuses or moaning and complaining that you never get a break. That type of negative, down in the dumps thinking has never taken you anywhere you've really wanted to go, has it? A winner makes his or her breaks and the big break you've been waiting for is out there waiting for you to discover it. But in order to uncover your very best, you must begin making every moment count.
"We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count."
Neil A. Maxwell
There can be no greater waste than the frittering away of a lifetime of possibilities, allowing the best of times to slip right through our fingertips because we never made our blessings count. Instead of permitting our promising futures to slowly rust away from months and even years of neglect, we need to begin cherishing each and every moment we are granted on earth, making certain that we not only bring out our best but also bring out the best in those around us.
We need to take our cue from the best of the best, those unique individuals who consistently squeeze more fun, more enjoyment and more happiness out of each and every day. These prime time players have come to realize that each day is a priceless gift from God and that once it is gone - it is gone for good.
If we constantly allow one day after another to come and then go without even making a dent in what we could have been, where do you suppose our lives will eventually end up? In all likelihood, no place we really want to go, wouldn't you agree?
"The purpose of life is to matter, to count, to stand for something; to have it make some difference that we lived at all."
If the only way to make life worth living is to make every day count for something truly special, why do so many people allow so many days to slip slide away, inadvertently permitting the best of times to pass them by as well? Good question; yet the answers are never so easy.
More likely than not, they don't see themselves as a person who comes out on top; a winner who deserves to live life to its fullest. Yet that is precisely what our Creator made each and every one of us to be. A winner worthy of enjoying the greatest treasures life offers up daily. None of us, not even one of us, is incapable of coming out on top.
But we need to face the music here; the only way we're going to make our lives everything we have ever imagined they could be and should be is to stop counting those days as they pass us by and instead start making the days count right here and right now. We need them to count for something super extraordinary, something super sensational and something that words alone can never express.
Time after time, the only difference between living your life the way it was meant to be lived and living a life that consistently comes up short is whether or not you really made a difference. So why not make that big difference by making a difference in the way you utilize your days, starting right now?
The Bottom Line: When you start making your days count, you'll never again have to worry about counting the days.
