Inspiration can come from anywhere. Last night, I saw the movie Notorious BIG. In it, there is a scene where Biggie is talking with his mom after the death of Tupac. "Make every moment count" were the words his mom uttered to him. No truer words were ever spoken.
Are you making every moment count in your life? Do you spend countless hours chasing things that really are not important in the long run? Life is short. We never know when the end comes. It is a surprise for all of us. Today is the only day that we have.
Have you identified what is important in your life? What lasting impressions are you leaving? In other words, what is your legacy? This is something that is accomplished only by investing the time in those important activities. Now is the time to make every moment count.
The world has so much to offer. We live in an age where information is readily available to us. There are so many ways to improve ourselves. I look at our forefathers; people who were true inspirations in their education and diversity. Men like Benjamin Franklin made the most of their lives. He was a successful businessman, inventor, diplomat, and educator. People like him were Renaissance men in the truest sense of the word. Their focus was on continual improvement. Is your life reflective of this idea.
It is easy to get caught up watching reruns on television. It is a mechanism which allows us to "turn off" our minds. However, for many, it is also a terrible time waster. Utilize each moment to it's fullest. That is how you create a successful life: one moment at a time.
Share and Enjoy!
