“Why do people wake up faithfully in the morning, dont matter if they sick, dont wanna go, but still go and build someone else’s DREAM= (WORK, 9-TO 5) but cant find not even one hour a day to build their own .. Then wonder why they have nothing to leave their kids, bank account looking like gas prices, living check to check, not growing, not learning, and repeating the same cycle that their parents did SMH..” A 5Linx Member
Any successful individual will tell you that a great part of their success is due to proper time management. In fact, the phrase “Time is Money” was originally quoted by Benjamin Franklin. Time has meant money for a very long time. That’s never going to change. What you do with your time makes all the difference. What you do today, tomorrow, this year determines on how successful you will be in the future. With success, comes sacrifice – a sacrifice of time. You are giving up time doing something you are in favor of in exchange for financial gain.
There are many people with big dreams and aspirations. Ideas that if put into play could very well become profitable. They are excited by the idea but shortly after the feeling of excitement fades, they are back to dreaming and procrastinating. Maybe you do spend most of your time working, but you work a low paying job that barely covers your bills. You like these low paying jobs that keep you poor because it requires little responsibility and allows for low expectations. In relation to success, continuously working a low wage job is about the same as not doing anything at all.
Time and time again, people will say, “I didn’t have time” or “I don’t have the time” to do something that may take only a few minutes of their time to complete or sacrifice. Everybody has time. It’s not that they didn’t or don’t have the time, it’s they didn’t make proper use of the time they have.
If you don’t like your life, now is the time to change it. Ask yourself, what can you do with your free time that will help you make earnings or future earnings? What can you do after clocking out of your low paying job to get a better paying job? Update your resume. Sign up for classes. Put into action that bright idea that keeps popping in your mind. Figure out how to get it started. YOU are responsible for your future. Five years from now if you are not in a better place, blame no one but yourself. Be responsible with your time. Set higher goals. You can do it. It’s all about your time, energy and effort. Once you get going, remember that most people don’t aim too high and miss; they aim too low and hit.
In closing, I want you to remember that everyone has problems. Everyone goes through hard times. You are not the only one.
Anytime you start feeling sorry for yourself, think of Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles. Think of the great things those men did while being handicapped with blindness. Yet, they lived and excelled as if their handicap was non existent. So you can’t feel sorry for yourself. There is someone out there who has it worse than you. God gave us all a talent. Some of us find our gift early in life, others find it along the way and some never do. Spend some time with yourself and find your talent. Everyone has a gift, including you… Find it. Go hard! Live it, breathe it and be persistent in pursuing your dream.
