The Most Valuable Commodity We Have

Time is one of the most valuable commodities that we have. It's more valuable than money. You can make more money, but you cannot make more time

Time is one of the most valuable commodities that we have.

It's more valuable than money. You can make more money, but you cannot make more time. Time is not only extremely valuable as a resource, but also quite unusual. It can't be stored, recycled, stopped, or transformed. ONCE IT'S LOST, IT'S GONE FOREVER. 

When you woke up this morning, you were given a present, it's called TODAY.  And with this gift comes a responsibility. Don't live this day unhappy, worried, unfocused, negative or defeated--make the most of each day. Things may not be perfect, but remember you can never get this day back. If you learn to see each day as a gift you will live with more intent. You will realize that when you spend your time, you are spending your life. You can either invest it or waste it. 

Imagine every morning a bank deposited $86,400 into your account. That money was yours to use anyway you like. The only catch is at the end of the day, whatever you don't use you lose. It's taken out of your account. That would get your attention. You would be focused, and not let one penny go to waste. Why?  Because it's valuable. 

It's the same principal with time. Every day each of us is given 86,400 seconds.  You can spend this time any way you like. You can either waste it or you can invest it. But the principle is the same: At the end of the 24 hours it goes away.

So, are you going to spend it worried, negative and defeated? Or are you going to be positive, developing your talents, pursuing your goals, happy and living each day to it's fullest?

You are not here by accident. You are truly valuable. You have a purpose and destiny to fulfill.

See this day as a gift.  Live intentional, live your legacy!
