NOT ENOUGH TIME IN A DAY

Clear Glass With Red Sand Grainer

“If only I had more time.”


24 HOURS IS NOT ENOUGH

Do you ever get the feeling that you don’t have enough time to work no matter how hard you put the work in? Because you want to see yourself in this life, but for some reason the more you work the further it seems you are away from your goal. Sometimes I wish we had 48 hours in a day instead of 24 hours in a day. Now, if we had that much time, would be surprised how many people would waste even more time. But for the people looking to grow something then they will have enough time. But you know what, even with this, we still might not feel we have enough time.

THE END IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK

The age of the Earth is billions of years old. But humanity has only been around for 250,000 years while the average person lives to be 78 years old. So when you look at your life, we are here for such a short period pertaining to the overall scheme of life. So we don’t feel there is enough time because we can’t see past the reality of what we are on this planet. But the problem is that when we think in this context we will miss out on a lot of things in life. You don’t want to get to the end and then feel like your life meant nothing.

TIME IS VERY RELATIVE

Time is not the time that we all experience in life. I feel from my space that I never have enough time. This could be good or it could be something bad. To me, I feel like life is moving so fast that I am trying to catch up to what it is I am trying to do. Now, in my same space I could have another person say that time dragged along. And when you feel time is dragging, you don’t feel motivated and it can hurt success. If you don’t have enough time, you might be closer to your goal.

FOMO WHILE IN PURSUIT

Group of People Partying

“Worry about self.”


FULL TIME YOUNG ADULT

When you are trying to pursue your career goals, there is something you must keep in mind. One, you will be building for a very long time. And the other is that you will miss out on a lot when you trying to build your life. So you will have to sit back and watch your peers live in their 20’s while you are out in the world building. Keeping up may make you feel like you are missing all the fun. But you are not really missing anything at times. In reality, some of them wish they had something to buckle them down and work toward. And how is this so, how can we assume they wish they had something?

TALENTS TAKES UP TIME 

In the pursuit to anything in life you must be willing to be uncomfortable. It means stepping outside the comfort zone and leaving other things behind. But it also means that you have to be willing to give up a lot of time spent going out and hanging. And how wants to miss out on all the action. But when you are young, especially 20’s you don’t know what you want to do. So you do tend to hang a lot more than most people. But when you find that thing, it does tend to become a distraction from social life. So what you don’t know is that sometimes you peers wish they had something more than what they were doing. But even with this said, it is not always the case.

EARLY GLOBETROTTERS

There are people in your same age group who have taken off at a very young age. These are people like professional athletes or entertainers who are living it up in their 20’s. So if you look at them you are going to be very miserable. Because they are living and making a good living. But what we don’t know is how long they were working prior to that point. There are actors who played small roles as 10 year old kids, but broke out at age 24 years old. That is young to break out, but you actually have 14 years in the game. So you are actually a veteran in reality. So everyone who is partying is not wasting time.

NO CAREER GOALS

Pen on to Do List Paper

“Figure something out.”


WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING TO DO

What happens when you are someone who has no real drive or goals in life? It can hurt a lot especially when you see people around you doing things and their lives moving around. You might feel like your life is not going anywhere and there will never be anything out there for you. But that is simply because you are comparing yourself to others. But you are also not honing in on your talents and skills. And yes, it will take a lot of time. And when I say time I am talking about years. But you are spending years doing nothing, so you should just focus on doing something. But let’s go a little further on the comparison to other people.

A SOCIAL SOCIETY

When you have all this social media around you, you can’t help but look at your life then look at the lives of others. But I am not just referring to anyone, but the people that are in your age range. And yes, there will always be someone in your age range in another tax bracket or lifestyle. But that should not be something that keeps people from growing to their full potential. And yet it is something that hurts a lot of young people achieve success. Here is another thing about social media world, people are not always if not most of them live that life. You are watching people post the best of their existence and hide the other things.

10,000 HOURS

Are you ready to put in the time to get to where you have to be. And here is where so many people fail to reach their potential. And this is also the reason so many people cannot put their full into anything to get started. They lack the sticktuitiveness to actually persevere into the life they have always wanted. It is great building in the first six months or even a year. But what happens when you are about two or three, better yet five years in and not much. That is when people start to really fall off. Trust that after ten years of fighting you start to see things in months and somethings weeks. But that is only after years of working.

MAKE YOUR MONEY WORK FOR YOU

“Respect it as you make it.”


EARN WITH REGARD

As you earn money, make sure to put some away for when you may really need your income. And this means that you job is not guaranteed, so who knows what may happen. You need some rainy day money just in case something bad happens. Another reason to put money away is to make it work for you eventually. This means to invest in some type of engine that will render a good return on your money. But not all people have the income to do so, or do we. Because when you look at what you spend your money on throughout the year, you see that most people have it. They just don’t do a really good job at managing their income.

MANAGE IT WELL

If you don’t know how to manage money, then you better start learning how to do so. Especially if you want to have a family one day. Then need to make use of your money in a responsible way is going to be crucial in your success not just in your career but as a spouse and parent. You also don’t know the important things that will come up along the way. And you don’t want to be known as one of those people who have a disrespect for money.

YIELDS NOT INCOME

You are supposed to use the rule of thumb that is let your invest yields pay for the things you want in this world not your income. So if you want all these things that cost a lot of money invest and buy that way. But see, the investment is long term and people want it now. And if you have a now mind-frame then you are setting yourself up for problems. Because to make the money work your way you have to build over time.

THOSE WHO CAN’T DO TEACH

Image result for teachers

“Do or taught to do.”


TEACH THEM WELL

When you are learning from an educator to use what you are taught to pursue in a career field do you ever think to yourself to how come they didn’t pursue while they are teaching you. Because they have all this knowledge about how to do something but they are never in that career. It’s like teaching someone how to cook, but for some reason you have never pursued a career in cooking. You would think that in was in them to do this as a career. But the reality is that some people don’t have the ability to fight for what they want, so they teach you to do so. But is it always like that, just so cut clean and dry.

THEY WERE ONCE GREAT

You would be surprised how many people were globetrotters in their career field and are now college professors. They worked for twenty or thirty years in their field and are now interested in teaching a group of next generation business people. And not just business, sometimes in the medical field or some other field where they have the expertise to aid in a collegiate course. But is it always about college students? Some teachers come back and teach a group of high school kids. And to add to it, are teachers always in classrooms? Professional athletes who are no longer playing have been known to go back to universities and coach. These are teachers as well, just a different specialized position.

THE ASSUMPTION OF TRUTH

We can always assume that since someone is teaching they are not willing to pursue this as a career. There are plenty of people who worked in the field as well as people who just have a love for the field of study. But anyhow, they still possess more knowledge in the field than the student.

WALKING THE ROAD ALONE

Image result for lonely road

“It’s all about the journey.”


THE COME UP

When pursuing anything in life, one must be ready to take that long road to success. And when I say the long road I mean be set in and ready for the long haul. You have to really be willing to spend years and years building your life. Otherwise you won’t make it through to the other side. And here is where most people fall apart. Because they are not willing to walk through fire to get to where they have to go. They want and can almost feel it, but then when the hard times really set in they fold and run. But this is part of the fight, you have to be willing to struggle and at times struggle hard.

YOUR TIME IS NOT EVERYONE ELSE’S

Building will not only be hard because you have to deal with the hardships of failure, but also the people you might lose. And those people will come form the unlikeliest of places. A lot of them will be friends and family. The people closest to you will discourage you from continuing to fight. They feel you should run as fast as possible and don’t look back. And they’ll say it’s to help you, but the people who succeed are the last ones standing. Many don’t understand the logic behind fighting to the last one standing. It just doesn’t resonate in the mind. Because to them play life safe and have a safety net to fall back on.

KEEP FORGING AHEAD

You will want to give up and quite, but you can’t allow the downside to keep you from growing. And you’ll even think to yourself why in the world did I decide to take on this career endeavor. If you have not asked yourself this question then you are not someone who is sane. But ion the end, the one standing will be able to tell of their journey and how they made it.

MAKING IT IN LIFE

Close Up Photo of a Person Wearing Suit Jacket

“What’s it all mean?


I’VE ARRIVED

People can’t wait until they get to a certain point in life then they look and say I have made it or arrived. But then you have to ask yourself, what does it mean by making it life? Because we automatically look at someone who makes money¬† as a symbol of where we want to be and how big we aspire to be. But looking at someone else’s life can be disatrous because we don’t know how they became so successful. We can look at their blueprint, but you should be weary of following another person’s actions move for move. It worked for them, not quite for you.

MEANINGS BEHIND INTENT

What is the real meaning behind the words. Because that is way more important than anything. In America, we always put the meaning for making it in the country as someone who has a certain level of income. But a school teacher might be a person living their dream and they are far from people making a lot of money. But in the same breathe you have celebrities taking their own lives even with so much money. So understand why you’re building and what it means to you.

COMPARED TO THOSE AROUND YOU

When you look at the peers of people around you, you have a tendency to stack yourself against others. And how could you not because who you associate yourself with says a lot about yourself. So you can’t be around winners and not be a winner yourself. It will either rub off on you or you will fall out the group. But you should never see yourself as not successful if you are doing something in life that is not as lucrative, as long as it has meaning behind it.
