No one can measure human potential. Nothing of value comes without sacrifice. I have learned to try to keep my eyes open for critical moments and try to trade up, never down. Boundless opportunity surrounds us all. I tell myself all the time to expect the best in the environment around you, but always prepare for the worse.
I find that you don’t necessarily pay for things with money, but rather with time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. There is only 24 hours to a day. I want to become the star of as many hours as I can, by trying to make the minutes I am given, count. This sounds obvious and a bit challenging, but I have come to realize that we should do things in our lives that will be positive, without a return or promise of reward and THERE WILL come a day that will be a payday for all the times we focused on placing value on each previous day we have been given.
Everyday we live we are all in the process of becoming. Whether we are becoming better or worse depends on what we give ourselves to. So strive for continual improvement, manage your time wisely, try not to abandon opportunities, try to find the best in those who surround you, and remember that the best reward for what we do is not what we get for it, but rather what we become by it.
