Your Most Precious Resource: Time

by Bill Gough, Insurance Hall of Fame Agent

We can all relate to having a hard time sleeping. Our brains are going a mile a minute thinking about everything we need to do, want to do, have to do… I have to shut myself up from thinking. I get stressed when I’m having to over think or think too much. No matter how efficient I am, it’s impossible to get everything I want done when I want it done. Sound familiar?

You have to get a grip that the only power you have is right now.

Ask yourself “What can I do right now?” If you take care of now the future will take care of itself.

We can plan and do proactive things for the future but we will never be able to know exactly what is going to happen. We often totally stress ourselves out with trying to do everything. We only have 1,440 minutes per day. Be aware that your that your brain has to be in the present time to be really effective.

Your time and energy should be at the TOP of your most precious resources list.

The present steps you take will allow you to manifest whatever it is that you want in your future. The bottom line is your point of power is always in the present. Train yourself to stay in the present as much as possible. Don’t try to figure out the solutions to everything. Have some faith in yourself and your abilities to deal with whatever cards you are dealt! The truth is you have always landed on your feet and you always will. Stop allowing stressful self-induced thoughts to zap your creativity and energy.

Be present, stop wishing away time, and stop wishing for things to be different. Do you really want to waste your life wishing?

As an entrepreneur you must realize that your time is one of your most important resources. Don’t waste it feeling sorry for yourself or wishing things were different. Deal with reality.

Every day we are in situations that are stressful and beyond our control. Don’t let your creativity, positive attitude, and good common sense slip away during these stressful times.

The only thing you have true power over is your response to all situations.

Be an actor to life instead of a reactor. Try this for a short time and see how your life becomes more fun, productive, profitable, and less stressful. You will also find that the people around you will appreciate your new attitude!

Life is short – ENJOY IT. Remember, it’s not the destination that counts but the journey. Give yourself a break!!
