Today’s #MondayMotivation post is a question of how you move through life and you’ll be either predominately one or the other.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about spending and investing. Are you a spender or an investor?
I’m not talking about how many shares you own or how many houses are in your portfolio, nor am I taking about money.
I’m talking about time.
The time you’ve been given is inherently free and there isn’t much we get for free in this world, especially something so valuable. So why do so many people spend huge amounts of time each day on things that don’t yield any return on that investment?
Spending countless hours watching TV, playing computer games, eating the wrong foods or spending time with the wrong people? All for little to no return. A successful life doesn’t come from simply spending time, it must be invested and invested wisely.
If you’re smart enough you will be investing your time wisely. This is where true success lays. We have all been given an opportunity to live and breathe in this world we have today, so why not invest your time into things that will make a difference and have a positive return, not just for you but everyone around you!
We are all on that same ticking clock, we’ve all been given 24 hours today just like the next man. But what are you going to do with yours? Because unlike money if you lose it you can’t build it back up again. With time, once it’s gone, it’s gone and you’re never getting it back. With that thought in mind time actually becomes the most precious thing we have. You wouldn’t invest money unwisely so why do it with time.
If you keep investing each of those 24 hour days and those days accumulate, those days will determine your future.
And investing in time isn’t actually that hard or complex. Challenge yourself and grow, surround yourself by good friends and family, make goals and plans for the future, eat well, sleep well and exercise! It’s really as simple as that.
But turning your spending into investing doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a gradual process of changes from clear goals and a focused mind. You are in the driving seat, so take control and don’t go spending too much of your time.
Have a great week.
Stay strong and live, love and laugh!
