Or; Exchange Time for Value!
In discussion with a friend recently, he was telling me that he tries not to exchange time for money, because that is not the most efficient use of his time. He said it was more important to leverage his own efforts so that he would benefit from other people’s time and efforts This is a concept that many companies teach their recruits to follow,. and from a financial point of view; it works for many in terms of leveraging money to make more money. I asked him about his quality of life and he said:” I am running and working many hours per day right now but, I am looking forward to the time when the money starts working for me.
So what if his body does not last until that time.? What is the quality of life that he is experiencing right now, and will it sustain life in good health?
I am personally committed to seeking balance in my life. Therefore, I was able to share with him, that although money is valuable and having lots of it is great, I would rather expend my time on the values of Harmony, Balance & Ease as a way of ensuring that I maintain my health, my spirituality and my wisdom.You see those three elements ensure a quality of of life, that for me, is true value. Since I know for sure that there are people with loads of money, but have poor health, unbalanced family lives, poor relationships…I realize that quality of life may not result from having loads of money. When our quality of life is poor, there is no joy and joy cannot be bought. It is very difficult to enjoy our life regardless of the money we have. Having a good quality of life begins with an intention that starts in the mind. Our thoughts become our activities, which become our habits, which shape our outcomes, which results in our destiny and the legacy that we leave behind when we leave the planet.
.Let us seek Harmony, Balance and Ease in all we do, and life will reward we with everything we need, including money! Let’s seek value! We will find it, as we pass the time away.
