What does success mean to you? What would you do with more hours in the day? Have you ever stopped to think that you have something in common with the richest, most successful people in the world? A friend of mine recently had the opportunity to speak with the founder of Facebook and he was so taken aback by that moment in his life. He couldn't believe that he, just a regular guy had such an awesome opportunity. I have thought about that a lot and questioned WHY? Why should we feel so inferior, why should someones social status, bank account, love life etc. make us feel we aren't worthy? Hell, I still don't know why people think that, I'm still trying to figure that out. Now, that said, put Jason Mamoa in my presence and well, I would fall out! My big fat American ass would hit the floor begging for CPR.
But seriously, every one of those people in our lives we are dying to meet, learning from, following on social media, wishing we were like...EVERY ONE OF THEM has one unquestionable thing in common with us. TIME! We all have the exact same time in the day, it's all about how we choose to use it. Me personally, I decided in the last 12 months to focus on learning and working hard to reach another level of success. To do that I'm taking the time I have in the day that I would be blowing, to learn. I want to learn as much as I can to go as far as I am able in this life. Will my learning take me to the big screen or help me hit a home run on a major league baseball team? Probably not BUT, I'm refuse to stop trying to find success just because I can't make contact with a round object and a wooden stick. I'm going to push myself, I'm going to shut the devil down when he tries to run circles in my mind. I am going to use my time wisely to gain knowledge on every thing I can so that I can not only help myself but so I can help others too.
In short, cleaning your clock will help you rid yourself of the dust that slows you down. We all have the same opportunity in each day to make a difference, it's all in how we manage ourselves, and our time.
