What could I possibly offer you that would be of such huge value to you at Midnight tonight? Not knowing a thing about you, regardless of where you live, what country you are from, what time zone you fall into or your age, education or beliefs? What if I said to you “Tonight at Midnight there will be a fresh deposit in your account. Beside the word deposit you will see the number 1440. You can expect this deposit at midnight tonight – and then every night at Midnight from now on until you cease to draw breath!!”. Wow, you’re excited, jumping up and down excited… “You’re going to give me $1440 cash every day?” you say. No, it’s something much more precious than money. Something that you can’t ever get back again. I’m going to give you the gift of TIME. At midnight tonight and then for the rest of your life I’m going to give you 1440, newly born, brand new, shiny, fresh, filled-with-anticipation MINUTES. Yours to do whatever you wish. Squander, waste, treasure and spend wisely the choice is yours – every minute of every day. However there is a catch… You will never know exactly when the supply is up. I will keep my end of the bargain and deposit them as promised every night for the rest of your life. What I can’t tell you is how long your life will last for. It’s now up to you. Will you let every day pass as if it’s just a string of days like any other? Or will you begin to make each day unique and something to treasure? Something exquisite to add to the tapestry of your life? Will you start the business you always wanted to, quit the job you hate, spend more time with your family, learn to draw, ride a horse, ski a mountain, surf a wave, learn the language? This list is infinite in it’s possibilites. So, lets break it down by looking at this example. Q. How long does it take to find and start a home business that you can feel passionate about and be well rewarded for? I’m 42 now. I found a home business that I adore and is supremely financially rewarding just about 2 years ago. So for 40 years I was doing things that weren’t necessarily my calling or what I felt fulfilled and truly alive doing, or making the money that I really wanted to make. That’s 57,600 minutes GONE FOREVER!! Now thats not to say that I feel I have wasted those 57,600 minutes. There have been some real highlights and superb times along the way. I’ve married, I’ve had 5 amazing children that I treasure, I have awesome friendships and have done some exciting and memorable things and learnt some fabulous skills. What I am saying though is that I have also squandered a lot of that precious time as well. Wasted time, wished for things to be different, complained, procrastinated, been angry, spoken harshly at times and ignored the precious moments and ‘nooks and crannies’ of my days that could have been filled with love, joy, service to others, riding my horse, laughing with my children or trying something new, being willing to stretch and to grow, to strive and to expand, really making the income that my heart desires. The list goes on of what I could have done… But here’s the exciting news. MY deposit comes at Midnight tonight. 1440 newly born, brand new, shiny, fresh, filled-with-anticipation MINUTES. I can start afresh again and spend tomorrow with renewed vigour. But even more exciting is that I can begin today. NOW!!!! Right NOW to spend the rest of my minutes today with that same vigour. In this moment I have 368 of those minutes left. I’m going to finish this article, SWITCH OFF the computer and I choose to spend the balance of todays deposit letting my family know how precious they really are to me. I won’t always have the time to spend with my family. And you? What about your 1440 minutes? Are you doing what you love? Living each day with meaning? Squeezing the juice out of each day? Well, there’s great news for you too. YOUR deposit also comes at Midnight and a fresh set of minutes begins for YOU tomorrow. But… In THIS moment, how many minutes do YOU have left today – and what will YOU do with those? What DECISIONS will you make?
