What you spent most of your time will shape you entire life.
People spend most of the time for working and sleeping, right? But we are not going to talk about that. We're going to talk about how we spend most of our time. You already know that if you want to be successful, you have to spend your time mostly on something that can lead to success. The easy and simple way is modeling the people who have already got what you want. Simply ask yourself, how they spend their time? Are they doing something productive or doing something useless?
What I particularly want to talk about is not how much time you spend to do something, but rather what are you going to do with the time you have. There are only two choice you can make. Successful people take one choice and others take another choice.
Let's say you have leisure time or free time where you have nothing to do. As I said before, you have two choices to shape your life in the future.
Your free time can be spent in two ways:
- You can do things that are bad for you. It means that you do things that lead you away from success.
- You can do things that are good for you. It means that you do things that lead you closer to success.
You can spend your time in unproductive activities such as daydreaming, sleeping, watching TV too much, playing around, talking about gossip etc. This type of activity is worthless for you. Even though playing or refreshing is recommended, sometimes people are doing it too much, too much playing, to much watching, to much playing. If you spend too much time for it, when do you have the time to do things that are positive?
You can spend your time in productive activities that expand yourself better and better. It is called self improvement. You can read motivational or inspirational books, attending seminars or workshops, doing activities that are both enjoyable and uplifting, doing a part-time job or business and on and on. When you spend some of your free time to improve yourself, you will one day improve you life.
Successful people sacrifice their leisure time to do things that other people won't. What sacrifice will you be willing to make?
