Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest:
Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use. However, this prize has rules, just as any game has rules.
The first set of rules: Everything that you didn’t spend during each day will be taken away from you. You may not simply transfer money into some other account. You may only spend. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.
The second set of rules: The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say it is over; the game is over. They can close the account and you will not receive a new one. What would you personally do?
You would probably buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love, right? Even for people you don’t know because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?
You would try to spend every cent, right?
ACTUALLY, THIS GAME IS REALITY! Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can’t seem to see it. THE MAGICAL BANK IS TIME.
Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not credited to us. What we haven’t lived up that day is gone forever. Yesterday is gone forever.
Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time…without any warning!
So, what will you do with your 86,400 seconds? Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. Think about that, and always think about this:
Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.
So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life! Here’s wishing you a wonderfully happy day.
Start spending those 86,400 seconds, and spend wisely since each second is irreplaceable.
