In the relentless pursuit of financial prosperity, the concept of time often takes a backseat, overshadowed by the allure of wealth. Yet, what if I told you that the key to unlocking a life of abundance lies not just in making money, but in how you manage the most precious commodity of all—time? Join me on a quick journey where we explore the profound impact of conscious decision-making and effective time management on our pursuit of financial freedom and lifelong happiness, while not overlooking the those special moments in life, such as a good old fashion family food fight.
So the first reality check as to our finances is this… How much can we make, versus how much do we make?
How much money can I make in a month? Thousands.
How much money can I make in a day? Thousands.
How much money can I make in an hour? Thousands.
How much money can I make in a few minutes? Thousands.
The difference? As a entrepreneur, a small business owner, it all depends on what I am doing! Thus I have to make a conscious decision to do what makes the most money in the least amount of time! Then simply Rinse and Repeat! Okay, so truth be told, the opportunities to make thousands in just a few minutes are less frequent than those in hours or days; however, the opportunity is indeed there. So, part of my daily process is to NOT overlook those opportunities, which I have certainly done over the years. And as for you, the opportunities depend upon your occupation, your profession, and even your passive income sources. A real estate investor has a significant advantage over a house painter in making more money per hour, while a social media influencer with tens of thousands of followers can make more than a real estate investor in just minutes.
The next step is to decide on the hours of which days, each week, that I am going to dedicate my conscious decision to! For me, this has been one of the hardest parts of the process. On most days I can totally relate to the squirrel and the shiny object.
This may be true for YOU too. Determine what you can do for the Rinse and Repeat step and then… decide on the time you will dedicate yourself to it.
The rest of your hours, days, weeks, months, and years will take care of themselves. The results? You will not wake up at age 60, 65, 70 burned out and trying to live out the remainder of your life on a pension, Social Security, Medicare, and Government handouts. You will wake up each morning, grateful and filled with happiness and joy over the fact you chose wisely. If you live out your life in peace, happy, grateful, and with God as a BIG part of your life, surrounded by family and friends who are integral parts of your support system, you will not find yourself struggling to smile when you wake up in the morning; you will find yourself giving thanks and praising Him for yet another day to enjoy every minute with those you love, respect, and cherish.
So, as you navigate the intricacies of earning the most money you can in a month, day, or even mere minutes, do not forget the profound truth that transcends wealth: money isn’t everything; time is. By choosing to dedicate your hours wisely, focusing on endeavors that align with your goals, you pave the way for a future where financial stability coexists with joy, gratitude, and meaningful connections. As you embark on this path, may each conscious decision be a step toward a life filled not only with wealth but with the richness of time well spent—a life where waking up each morning is a celebration of wise choices, gratitude, and the presence of those you hold dear.
Money isn’t everything. Time is! Make the right choice; choose wisely.
