If you waste your time, you waste your life. Do you want that to happen to you? To stop it from happening to you, here are six pieces of advice that can help you.

Do not squander your time.

“Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time; for that is the stuff life is made of.”- Benjamin Franklin

If you value your life, do not waste your time. If you want to grow, do not squander your time. And do not hang out with time wasters. If you do, they will waste your own time.

Your time is your life.

“Time is life.”- Michael Ende

Your time is your life. How you spend your time is how you live your life. How you start your day is how you are going to end your day. If you start it well, you will end it well. To end your day well, do not waste your time.

Things Take time

“Lots of things take time, and time was Momo’s only form of wealth.”- Michael Ende

Things take time to grow. It takes time to move from point A to point B. Nothing happens overnight. If you want to grow yourself, you must be patient with yourself.

Time is happening right now.

“Time begins and then time ends, and then time begins once again. It is happening now, it has happened before, it will surely happen again.”- Lexx

Whether you take what you are doing seriously or not, time is happening right now. It never stops. And it will never stop. If you want to make it big in life, you must begin. Do not wait for the right time.

Everything is time. Seize the time.

“The thing about time is, there’s so much of it between so little.”- Mihael Greenhut

Live your life in the Now. Do not worry yourself about what happened to you yesterday. It is over. The only thing you can do is to learn from it.

The present moment contains past and future.”

“The present moment contains past and future. The secret of transformation, is in the way we handle this very moment.”- Nhat Hanh

It is not what happens to you that matters. It is how you handle it that matters. Wherever you are, be there. whatever you are doing, do it. If you want to transform your life, your world, you must focus on this very moment.

If At First You Don’t Win, Don’t Quit

If at first you don’t win, do not quit. According to W.C. Fields, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it.” Failure will always come to you. You can’t stop failure. The only thing you can do is to embrace it. Don’t limit yourself. Allow yourself to fail. Because without failure, you will never grow. We grow when we fail, when we make mistakes. As Sophia Loren once said, “Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.” Without failure, nothing happens. Without failure, you won’t grow.

“If you are not failing, you are not doing enough.”

And if you want to grow, do not fear failure. Failure is the way, not the obstacle. If you are not failing, you are not doing enough. If you are not failing, you are not learning. If you are not failing, you are not growing. Do not let failure stop you from living your full life. You can do anything. You can create anything. You can be anything. But you must work really hard to make it happen.

“Without failure, there can be no growth.”

Talk is cheap. Actions are expensive. Do not be a talker, be a doer. Talkers fear failures. But doers welcome failures. They learn from their mistakes.

And without failure, there can be no growth, there can be no success, and there can be no happiness.
