You Have ONE Life...So don't waste it!

“Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows.” – Michael Landon

Understand that there are no redo’s, no start overs, no rewinds in life.  There is one run and it can end tomorrow. None of us know how much time we have left on our clocks, so we need to stop wasting it. Every second that you spend on social media, watching Netflix, etc. … is a second that you could have spent building something, creating something, expressing your inner desires and getting closer to reaching your goals.

I don’t mean to sound rude, but I do mean to sound direct. So many people go through the motions, procrastinate, and act like they are going to live forever. Just like with anything, we don’t know what we have until it is gone. That also seems to hold true when applied to the opportunities and amount of time we have in our lives.

If you knew you were going to die exactly one year from now, what would you do? Would you continue to put off everything that you want to do in life because you don’t have the money, or the know-how, or the connections (or any other excuse you give yourself)?


Are you going to find a way?

My guess is if you knew when it was all going to end, you would flip a switch and become someone who never sits, who doesn’t take no for an answer, who doesn’t care what other people think. You would become an efficient goal accomplishing machine.

So why not live like that right now?

You might not have one year left, or even 5 minutes. Let the thought of the unknown fuel you into making the most of every moment so you can truly experience what life has to offer. Stop caring about things that don’t truly matter and focus on the things that are going to propel you forward in life. Stay hungry for more. Simply put… Keep Grinding and most importantly, Keep Growing!
