Daily Wisdom: Seize the Moments

You-have-all-the-time

Oh how we waste golden moments daily, and yet we claim we don’t have enough time to pursue our dreams. Most of us are familiar with the phrase; if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. I hear it used every time, in fact it is shared as tweets and posts on facebook too even by those whose life is going nowhere.

Take a look around you and you will crowds of people, restless, uncertain and wandering through life. You will find men and women, boys and girls drifting hour by hour, aiming at nothing and going nowhere.

As for you, be well advised and make sure you fill your life with a definite purpose. Know where you are going and what you wish to accomplish and what means you intend to go about accomplishing that purpose. Make use of the valuable moments that the majority of the unthinking people in our world are throwing away.

Realize how well spent minutes multiply into hours of productive efforts. You have all the time there is, and now is the best time to do the best that is in you.

Are you fond of procrastinating and shifting your dreams and responsibilities to some later day? Think about this message from the scriptures; “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog–it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” There is a cemetery in the district where I live, and each weekend someone is buried.

Were they happy when they died? Etc.

Folks this life is momentary. If you have dreams and goals now is the time to begin them. Today is best time to begin all those worthy plans and dreams you’ve been contemplating on. You’ve probably heard the saying that delay is dangerous and procrastination weakens purpose, why don’t you get up now and seize the opportunity while it is still within your reach? You may wake up tomorrow and realize that everything is gone. I have missed some opportunities in my life and I can tell you it was really a painful experience for me when I realized what I had lost by failing to take action.

Bill Gates one of the richest people in the world was asked during an interview on “Larry King Live” what his secret of success was, and if luck had any role to play in it. And replied thus, (in Paraphrasing) Larry maybe luck had a role to play in it, maybe I was at the right place at the right time, but you know I wasn’t the only one there. Others were there at the time too but the difference was I had a bigger sense of vision. And he went on to say, “Larry” I wasn’t the only one with a bigger vision but what made the real difference was that I took immediate and massive action. Continue reading Take Immediate Action
