Michael LeBoenf said, “Waste your money and you’re only out of money, but waste your time and you’ve lost a part of your life”.
If you are young and think all is all well today, or you think you have plenty of time to plan your future because you are still young; remember this, an “Early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost.” If you hesitate to do what’s important for your today, today is lost. So is your future too if you hesitate to plan it productively today, and so you hesitate for yourself a good future. What we do today, is what we will reap as our future.
Your life is your dream, is your thought, and everything that we experienced in our past was created in the present now, and everything we will experience in future is created in the present now. That’s why it’s very important to plan our future productively, in the now. Today is the only day you and me have, not tomorrow, we are not there yet, and our past is already gone, we cannot even rewind back to reconstruct those days it if we made some errors, but we can learn from that experience, and let that experience inspire and motivate us plan productively now, this moment so that can create a better future for ourselves. The future is how you dream it now.
You see, the problem of not living wise now, today; is preparing to live a fool tomorrow, your future. For example, not planning to improve your health today is improving sickness today. If you are not planning to become financial free today, definitely you are planning to become financially poor today and your future too. And the other problem is that if you don’t plan your future, anything will fall into your future and mostly what you never expected, but expected without planning; what you never planned is what you get as well said by Mr. Larry Winget that “Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke, fat, lazy or stupid. Those are the things that happen when you don’t have a plan”.
“Sensible people will see trouble coming and avoid it, but an unthinking person will walk right into it and regret it later”, said Proverbs 27:12, the bible.
If you are young and you think you have a lot of time to plan your future, just look around those poor, broke, sick old miserable people on streets, those sticking to the jobs they hate, living in shamble places, they had the same time you have now, thinking the same thoughts you are thinking now, that am still young, I have a lot of time and years to plan my future, while they only had this same day you have now, today.
As I have said, the problem of not living wise now, today; is preparing to live a fool tomorrow, your future. If you are 20 years old now, and when you are 70 years old, you will not do everything you had the time and energy to do when you were in your 20s. It’s never too late to dream again as an adult, but it’s not every dream you had in your 20s you will make a reality when you are in your 70s and above years. The truth is that some dreams can only be worked on when you are still young, when adult age comes in, the difficult it is.
The time you have is now, simply because wasted time is wasted life forever, and today is the only time, life to begin to do what you desire, plan, dream of and what to become with your own life.
Everything you have and dream of now, begin now, today, because your future is now; the only day you have is now, tomorrow will never comes, it’s now. Your future is today.
