‘Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away
There is an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on earth, right time for birth and another for death, a right time to plan and another to reap, a right time to kill and another to heal, a right time to destroy and another to construct, a right time to cry and another to laugh, a right time to lament and another to cheer, a right time to make love and another to abstain, a right time to embrace and another to part, a right time to search and another to count your losses, a right time to hold on and another to let go, a right time to rip out and another to mend, a right time to shut up and another to speak up, a right time to love and another to hate, a right time to make war and another to make peace, that is an exposition on time from that wise king who lived several thousand years ago – king Solomon.
Time is given for the purpose of achieving specific assignment and there is a right time for everything. Your life is in different seasons and you must learn to convert time into money, happiness, love, peace of mind and rich fulfillment depending on the season of your life. There is a time to plant, there is a time to reap, there is a time to go to school, there is a time to reap the benefits of going to school.
Dear reader, we must value time as a nation and we must learn to convert time into money and that change must begin with you. See the amount of time we waste as a nation. When we spend time in traffic hold up we do not realize that as a nation we are losing money. You must plan your life in such a way that even travel time is converted to money in your life.
Why don’t you read a book, why don’t you listen to a tape, why don’t you add to knowledge someone once prayed teach us to number our days that we may apply our heart to wisdom. The way to convert time to money is to first convert it to wisdom then from wisdom you attract money. Spend time reading it’s not enough to chat in order to kill time, add to your knowledge let no day leave you the way it met you and you will move gradually towards the fulfillment of success.
When you manage your time well you manage your life well because time is life. Most of us don’t control our time we want to control other things that God has not put within our control like the weather and other peoples’ opinion and the result is frustration. Some of us don’t control our time because we believe that we will have more time in the future we procrastinate.
Dear friend, today is the tomorrow you spoke about yesterday. Like they say tomorrow never come why – by the time tomorrow arrives it is turned into today whatever you are planning to do tomorrow do it now. Today is the tomorrow you spoke about yesterday. It is of no use doing things that have no value just because we want to kill time. You cannot kill time but time can kill you.
To make the most of your time, you must establish your personal values the things that are most important to you and then you must invest your time in those things. Do you value success or family or beauty or health or love? Do you value financial independence? Do you value knowledge? invest your value in these things then you will have fulfillment. Whatever you have today it is because you invested your time to get those things. Whatever you don’t have today it is because you have not yet invested time to have those things.
When your personal activities, your daily activities reflect your values you will have peace of mind and you will have money too. Remember, money is not the only definition of wealth there are other intangible dimensions to wealth like peace of mind. When you have values you will have value, that is, you will be valuable. Today find out those things that are very important to you in your life and begin to invest your time to acquire those things.
You will succeed.
