Every Day is a New Beginning!

The beginning is the most important part of the work Plato

A Very Special Bank Account

Imagine you had a bank account that deposited $86,400 each morning. The account carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to keep no cash balance, and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every dollar each day!

We all have such a bank. Its name is Time. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever time you have failed to use wisely. It carries over no balance from day to day. It allows no overdraft so you can’t borrow against yourself or use more time than you have. Each day, the account starts fresh. Each night, it destroys an unused time. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, it’s your loss and you can’t appeal to get it back.

There is never any borrowing time. You can’t take a loan out on your time or against someone else’s. The time you have is the time you have and that is that. Time management is yours to decide how you spend the time, just as with money you decide how you spend the money. It is never the case of us not having enough time to do things, but the case of whether we want to do them and where they fall in our priorities.

Last Year’s Words Belong to Last Year’s Language…The Power of Change

The Power of Change

We are about to start a new year. Take a moment to think about today’s quote by T. S. Eliot: “For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice”. T. S. Eliot is talking about the power of change. We all have personal power and a choice about how we use that power!

Every day we are given the chance to change our voice – to change how we look at life and how we affect those around us. Every day we are given the ability to voice the words of our life through our actions.

Do you ever feel doomed? Do you ever feel like you are powerless to change your life? Or, is the reality that it just “feels” like you are powerless because you know the changes required would be difficult to make?

In so many instances, the biggest influence in our life is not others or our problems; it is the way we look at things. Could you make a positive change in your life by changing how you look at it? With that in mind, what changes – however small – can you make right now and what changes can you make in small steps? It is always within your power to change the words are you going to use in your life.

Change does not have to come with the new year. Change can come whenever we choose it. If you are unhappy with your life – remember you have the power to change it!

I hope you enjoy today’s story about change!:

The Obstacles in Our Path

In ancient times, a king had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it.
Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the big stone out of the way. Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many others never understand.
Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve one’s condition.

A Single Footstep Does Not Create a Path…

single-footstep-sand-768783Are you looking to change your life? To do so, you must change how you think! God has given you the ability to control your thoughts! It takes practice and intentional effort but you can do it! Just like a single footstep does not create a path in the sand, a single changed thought does not create a new way of thinking! You can identify thoughts that sabotage your life. Once you identify those thoughts or habitual ways of thinking, you can make a deliberate effort to replace them with thoughts that are positive and life-building! #Thoughts #Mental thoughts #Changeourlife #HenryDavidThoreau #Path #Change
