How to Get Rich - Discover the Most Valuable Commodity

Do you know what the most valuable commodity is ?

Do you know what commodity is irreplaceable ?

Chances are you have never thought this way before !

The Most Valuable Commodity

No it is not precious diamonds, it is not gold or silver. In fact it's not any earthly known substance known to man. It is something in your life that cannot be replaced and once it has been used up it is gone forever.

Many people waste this commodity and afterwards wish they had it back again. Every person is given only so much of this commodity but no one knows how much until it is too late.

I'm probably driving you crazy by now. Well here it is. The most valuable commodity known to every individual on this earth is time. There are 86,400 seconds in every day. There are 604,800 seconds in each week. And finally, there are 31,536,000 seconds in each year except for leap years where there are 31,622,400 seconds.

Well, that sounds pretty impressive when you do the math. We have all had a lot of time to do whatever we have done up until now. None of us know how much of this time we have left to do what we have left to do.
That is the problem with life, the uncertainty of it all.

How to Use This Commodity 

There is absolutely nothing we can do to change what we have done with our time in the past. However, there is a lot that can be done to better use the time we have left in the future.

For instance, the more money you can save and invest early in your life, the richer your life will be for a longer future. You will be able to enjoy a much more rewarding life if you have the freedom to do what you want to do.

It takes money to live and enjoy the things you want to get out of life. You can either live for today and forget about tomorrow or you can live a little less today and plan for a better tomorrow. It's your choice. But whatever you decide, remember, there is no going back to do it over again.

For most, the best choice is to do a little bit of both. Enjoy today and plan for a better tomorrow. People that scrimp and save today, give up their enjoyment of time now hoping that they will have time in the future to enjoy their wealth. Sorry, but that time may never come if you become ill. People that spend all their money to enjoy their time now will be wanting in the future time and wishing they had done things differently. Sorry too late. You made your decision and now you have to live wit it.

Future of This Commodity

No one knows what the future will bring. However, we must all go on living with a positive outlook imagining that we will have a long and prosperous future. How could you possibly have a good life if you thought any other way?

Whatever you do right now will shape your future time. The past is in the past and cannot be changed.

Go forth with the time you have today to make your future time as enjoyable as possible. You owe it to your future self.

As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
