Do your professional and personal habits or choices agree with the Legacy you want to become?
Each of us has 1,440 minutes in a day. What if every moment was worth a valuable gold coin? What if the whole of your worth was summed up in how well you’ve invested each cold coin through thoughts, actions and what you spend your time focused on? Would your stack of 1,440 coins be larger or smaller at the end of every day? If you were handed these coins upon waking up for one month, would it change the way you spent your day for that month? In reality, this is how it works in life and business. Time is truly is the most valuable commodity you own and once it’s spent, you can never get it back.
Ask yourself today and every day, “What will you ‘purchase’ with each gold piece? Will it be anguish resentment, frustration, self-pity or doubt?” Or will it be hope, excitement, a plan of action and an opportunity for growth in times of trial? Will you spend your gold helping others and expanding your own intrinsic and extrinsic wealth? Or will you spend it all on meaningless, nonproductive thoughts and actions which will only shorten your life, destroy your well-being and bring in a negative ROI. One thing NOBODY can take from you is how you think, what you focus on, who influences you and how you process the issues of life.
All of us face disappointments, trials and unexpected challenges, some are our fault and others are not. But the difference between those who rise above it and those who do not is always determined by the standards they set for themselves on a day to day basis.
“Let others lead small lives, but not you.. Let others argue over small things, but not you.. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.” ― Jim Rohn
Some day you will run out of gold coins, what kind of legacy will you have purchased by how you live each moment? You have a distinct and intentional destiny to fulfill and the only way you can complete this is moment by moment. I challenge you to prepare for each day from this perspective beginning now.
