What is Time?

As far as you and I are concerned, time is now. It’s not yesterday and it’s not five years ago–it’s what you can do with now.

Nothing can ever be accomplished in the past. Nothing was ever accomplished in the future–only the present. Breath a big sigh of relief, whatever you can do to improve your life is encapsulating you right now.

The above equally applies to change. Change has never happened in the past, nor in the future, but only in the moment.

It’s said you can do anything you put your mind to. Success, then, is the result of mind placement.

When you look at time in this light you realize you have all the time in the world. It’s never a matter of how much time you have because time isn’t quantifiable. Time is merely opportunity. And opportunity is now.

Even while working a job you dislike there’s plenty of opportunity to seize. You can think about how you’re going to make your life better. Why it means so much to you. And the actions you’ll take to get there.

Next time someone asks you how much time you have, I hope you’ll answer “all the time in the world.” Because the only real meaning to ‘time’ is what you’re choosing to do now.
