Time is life. It’s irreplaceable; our most valuable resource. And TIMING is everything in life, too. How we handle timing and our time are probably the two most important decisions we make in life.
“How did it get so late so soon?
Its night before its afternoon.
December is here before its June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?” ~ Dr. Seuss
He’s right. You’re future will thank you or curse you for the choices you make today. Once that hour is gone, it will never return, and regret solves no problems. I’m not going to talk about our relationships, although that’s all that matters in the long run, after our spiritual life, and the older we get, the more we realize that. After relationships comes our health. Instead, let’s talk about money, because that comes in right after our health.
Every second counts when it comes to timing and the use of our time regarding making money. Those who sold their stocks right before the crash in 2008 made a good decision. Those who sold their dot com businesses before that bubble burst escaped with good money. Same with houses. Those who bought gold before the price skyrocketed were glad they did, too. When we left South Africa in 1997 and came to Canada, our South African Rand was worth twenty five Canadian cents. Those who have waited until now to get our of that violent, crime ridden country now only get nine Canadian cents. And they’ll have a hard time selling their homes to immigrate…
It’s easy to waste time doing what is easy and comfortable in your business. Horace Mann wrote, “Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever.” Opportunities are missed. Timing is wrong. Money is lost or made, based on weak or courageous decisions. And, as Geoffrey Chaucer wrote, “Time and tide wait for no man.”
Getting in and getting out (nothing lasts forever, although it’s uncomfortable to accept that) require a proactive, thoughtful, and informed objective approach. Churchill wrote, “The farther back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.” That is why well read men can predict accurately what is going to happen to the economy, the political situation, and business. We knew what happened historically in every country in Sub-Saharan Africa where the Whites no longer ruled; why would South Africa be any different? We were right – it has gone the same way as all the others. That isn’t racism – it can be proved with cold, hard, indisputable facts.
Imagine a giant snowball rolling down the hill. It didn’t start as a giant, but the longer it rolled the bigger it got and the faster it went. Now imagine if you could roll four snowballs down the hill at the same time, and snow was money. The sooner you start, the better, and I can show you how to do that. The sooner you start, the sooner you can enjoy the peace of mind of financial freedom. Where can you be in one year? Even in six months, if you start today? Contact me and let’s talk.
