Before I get started and too far into this post. I wish I thought about this, but this was not from me. This was from his book, Destination Success. This is one of my favorite books I have read in my life so far. Your life clock is ticking?
“If life is a clock and you are born at 12:00 A.M. and die at midnight, you have 24 hours. If the average lifespan is 72 years, each hour represents 3 years. For instance, if you are 39, it is 1 P.M. If you are 51, it is 5 P.M. and if you are 60, it’s already 8:00 P.M. If you measure life like a clock, it passes rather quickly. So where are you on the “clock” life”?
What’s Your Time
For me personally, it would be 9:00 A.M. already. Now yes, I have more time ahead of me then the time that has already passed, this is true. Thinking about it I still have 27 years under my belt already, or 9 hours so far on my clock. If 72 is just the average age people reach before they die. If you do it right that should still is enough time to live a full life and enjoy yourself. Just think if you make it to 90 years? That’s 18 extra years of life to live and make the most of it and enjoy your time. If you’re a glass half full person, that’s 18 bonus years that you get to live. If you’re a glass half empty that might be 18 years too long haha.
Life should not just be lived to get by and just squeak by. Once it’s your time and you hit the end of your road. I don’t think we should be saying, I’m not ready to die yet? There is still so much I want to do, and what about this and that I wanted to accomplish? Now maybe you’re like me and hold yourself to high standards and trying to push yourself to do the best you can. Maybe at the end of your time, you might say something like that. Or maybe, you will be completely ok with it and except it.
Hopefully One Day
Until that day comes, again who knows when it might be? How are you going to continue to live your life? When you hit 72 years do you want to be proud of what you did, or filled with regrets and disappointments? Right now at the moment being single and not tied down. Mostly because I haven’t had much luck in that department, but that’s a topic maybe for another day haha. With me, all I have is my work right now.
Yes don’t get me wrong, I have my big family and could not be more excited and blessed to have them all. What I’m trying to say is. Besides them and some close friends, what do I have? All I have is my work, my goals and dreams I’m working towards trying to accomplish. You might not agree, but for me right now with where I am in my life, I’m ok with that.
When the time comes, to find a girl and hopefully get married and have kids in the near future. I cannot wait for that moment, and it will be one of the happiest moments in my life. Until then, and till that moment happens, all I have is my work and what I’m trying to accomplish. I’m trying to help people and share my story with you and have an impact on kids and young adult’s lives.
Until my personal life changes and there are other people involved then I have to keep working as hard as I can to get better and grow. If not just for my own personal goals and dreams I have. Then for the kids that I want to impact and help them grow and become better than they were.
That’s why time is against US. 2017 is almost over people and 2018 is around the corner. Time is not going to slow down for us, that’s the one thing in life we can’t control, is time. Everything else we have a part in controlling and playing a roll in. Our work ethic and the changes we want to make. Either it’s good or bad, the choice is up to you?
I have made my changes and of course still working on them and trying to get better. I mean that’s a constant goal we all should be working on and trying to get better in. That’s life; you live and learn every day? What you do after those moments good or bad, are what’s going to help make you into the person you are meant to become?
Running Out Time
What is your time on your clock? How much time do you have left? For me whenever it is my time to go, I’ll accept it and I’ll be ok with that. After all, it’s not like I can run from it or hide from death? Until that time comes, I’m going to keep working and doing the best I can for me, my family, and YOU. The question is what are you going to do with your reaming time you have left?
How many hours do you have till it’s your time to punch out and you’re done, and have to go home? I have made up my mind to make the most of the time I have left. The question is, did you? The even bigger question you have to ask yourself is, will you make the changes and do better?
