Time is the one variable that each of us has on the path to success. And the great thing about time is that it does not discriminate. Time does not choose who will win or who will lose. Time does not show favoritism—it is irrespective of a person’s origin, gender, socioeconomic status or familial pedigree.
Time is just that, time. It is the one variable that all of us have at our disposal. We are each given twenty-four hours to begin our day. The people who find the most compelling ways to deploy the most value during that twenty-four hour period are the ones who almost always go on to win.
If you plan on winning, then your rhetoric must match your grind.
I always find it interesting when people tell me how badly they want to win in life, but the first excuse out of their mouths, is: “I don’t have time.”
So, let’s get this straight. You have been given the gift of life. You have been given the luxury of time. A ridiculously impossible idea has chosen you. The Universe has ordained you and equipped you with everything you need to bring that idea to fruition, and your response to being chosen to leave a lasting legacy is, “I don’t have time.” WTH?!!
You cannot keep saying that you’re going to blow up, but are constantly sabotaging and hijacking your progress by inaction or indecision. If you plan on winning, then your rhetoric must match your grind. The twenty-four hours given to you, and to me, must be maximized every single day.
Regardless of the type or level of success you are aiming for, there is one common denominator of success, and that is time. The way you use that 24-hour period WILL determine whether you go on to live a life of mediocrity or a life of unparalleled success.
The choices is yours.
