Time-A concept Men Need to Understand

It’s an intangible many men do not understand. One that can make or break a man. Many don’t come to appreciate it until they’ve lost years of it.

What is this intangible? Time.

Time is the most precious of all a man’s intangibles. Every second that in a man’s life that passes is one he can’t get back.

So many men take time for granted, especially in their youth. They spend their time chasing hobbies that waste years of their lives. They spend their time trying to help toxic, dysfunctional friends and family. They spend their time in relationships with women who don’t enrich the quality of their lives.

All of these people and things impede a man’s growth. Worse, they waste his precious time.

Once a man becomes aware of how valuable time is, he must make every second of his life count. Time is more than valuable, it’s precious. God only gives us a finite amount of time on Earth. And we as men must come to understand how little of it we actually have.

God wants us to make the most of the time we’re given on Earth. Life is a precious gift and the time we’re given is one of the most valuable things many of us take for granted. Many of us think we have all the time in the world.

Then twenty or thirty years later we realize how we wasted our lives. How we wasted our time.

The most successful men in the world understand the intangible of time. They understand that every second is precious and every second that counts. We as men must grow to understand the value of this intangible as well.

Successful men don’t waste time. They don’t spend time dealing with toxic, dysfunctional people who don’t want to sit in the same spot complaining about problems. They don’t spend their time on hobbies that won’t put money in their pocket or help them get to the next level. And they don’t spend time with women who don’t bring anything to the table.

People who value time understand that these kinds of toxic and dysfunctional people waste time and don’t have anything to do with them. Why? Because they don’t understand how precious time is.

For a toxic and dysfunctional person, everything is about doing something later. And while they waste precious time, these toxic people whine, complain, and procrastinate. Then when they get older and run out of time to do something with their lives, they make excuses.

When you get involved with them their excuses become your excuses.

Successful people understand there are no tommorows, if you want to achieve something, you have to do it NOW! They know that time is not on their side, so they make every effort to make every second of their lives count.

Guys, we don’t have much time on God’s earth. We have to make the most of every second we have. You only have one life to live, so make the most of it!
