Even though they say no wasted years is a worst if you learn a lesson from it, but the truth is, you will never rewind those past lifetime years, they are gone, and they are already wasted forever.
It’s the same as when someone discovers their purpose and talents when they are old, they regret for sure they wasted themselves by minding other people’s life opinions, dreams and circumstances and neglected to mind their own life opinions, dreams and circumstances, this is mostly what the majority of people go through in life neglecting themselves and their own potentials within, and blinded to work hard on other people’s dreams, blinded to work hard on a job that is not theirs but their employers and busy chasing a pension in the government that no longer exist. Samuel Morgan said; “When people discover their purpose late in life, they weep and lament over the past because they begin to realize they could have achieved a lot if they had channeled their strength and resources into their purpose.” Caution!!
“If you don’t work on your dreams, someone else will hire you to work on their own dreams”
Truth is, they is no time to mind your own life business tomorrow or in future than you have today, the only time you have is now, today; “Everything happens and is created in the now. Yesterday is now and tomorrow is now”, it’s only a fool who believes they have more time tomorrow, but a wise person understands that the only time I have is right now to prepare and do the right thing i have to do in order to experience the life I want in future; tomorrow exists now.
Most of our older grown up people or parents are living a life of regrets for not working on the life they truly desired and wanted to live, they thought they will always be young, and right now we still have many young people in their 20s and 30s still thinking they have more time in future to work on their dreams especially a financial life simply because they have a well paying job or pay check. Most of my fellow young friends still walk in this track, “We are still young, lets enjoy life bro” “Bro I have a well paying job, I will secure my financial life in future” “Don’t worry bro, tomorrow is another day, drink today”. Well BS Friends!! For me Tomorrow Never Exists, only Today Exists, that’s why I Invest Today Wisely each day that comes. I have written this article simply because this is what majority of my fellow young people say day in day out when we link up either for a beer or just for some other conversations or meetings;
“If you knew how hard it is to struggle financially when you are an adult, you will begin to secure your financial life today, as young as you are” – Rich Dad
However, it’s never too late to start afresh for a man who has become wise from his regrettable experiences; yes indeed wisdom also comes through learnt mistakes, but more from other people’s experiences. You can begin today, if you don’t what to regret again the years or hours you have in front of you. It’s what the 1835-1990 Humorist and Author of the book “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” said;
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
If you are young, please don’t think you will have more time in future than this time you have this moment, the right time to begin working on your dream, financial life and taking full control of your own future is now, now is the only time you have to begin. Always remember that “You are younger today than you will ever be again. Make use of it for the sake of tomorrow”, said Mr. Norman Cousins.
