You were born a multi-millionare

9 replies
On average a person is born with 39,420,000 minutes to spend. Its a good reminder that you spend some of these every day so spend them wisely.

You just spent some of them right now.

The short point is to spend your minutes on the things you enjoy. I can't tell you how many people I've known that have put off their dreams until this or that happens and they died without ever getting what they most desired.

The new year is coming up. It's a great time to reset. I would advocate spending some of your minutes thinking about your future and what you really want in life.

    New Years is a great time to look back and see what you have done with the last year of your life.

    What did you do with yours??

    Will it leave a lasting impression on you, on others, and on those you love most??

    Scott is right. It is a great "time to reset" and get focused on something that really matters.

    Also remember ** New Years resolutions only change you if you are RESOLUTE **

    Best to everyone in the new year,
    William Dean

    PS: Get a jump on everyone else and start TODAY!!

    That's pretty darn inspirational, Scott (if not eye opening). Thirty-nine million minutes and change really doesn't sound like all that much. Even 657,000 hours doesn't sound like much.

    Thanks for pointing this out!

      Here's where I'm at:

      -22300 Months


      -96962 Weeks


      -678738 days


      -16289725 Hours


      -977383485 Minutes


      -58643009091 Seconds


      -58643009090166 Milliseconds

      Give or take a few minutes in there. I have a rough idea of the exact TOB but don't have access to my birth cert right now.

          All about whether the glass is half empty or half full. What's worse, the latter will ultimately waste more time regretting time wasted.

          People treat life like it's some kind of dress rehearsal, like "maybe one day" they'll get around to doing something. There's always something, usually "no time". It's not a matter of how much time you have, but the choices you make.

          I knew one guy who wanted to design video games. I asked him why he wasn't going for it now. He "didn't have time." Instead he worked in a craft store (he doesn't do crafts) not because it's fun but "it just pays the bills." This, sadly, is the epitome of humanity - the vast majority go through the motions to do "what pays the bills" without ever following their dreams.

          Thinking logically, what would "more time" do in this situation? Spend more time in a job you don't care for?

          Of course, this the mentality of people everywhere, so it doesn't matter where I go. Most people don't know what I'm talking about.

          Time is precious. Dig a little deeper, and you'll find many uses for it.

          In all that you do, know your True INTENT...

    Oh, I was doing the same calculations other day.
    moneysoapbox is absolutely right, we are always waiting for something.
    Let this happen then I will start, n that event passes still we r at one place.
    Only those go ahead who take action, even I think I am sometimes waiting for something.
    I need to seriously follow the favourite line of my favourite idol-
    "Just do it"
    Say it to yourself few times you will know the true meaning behind it.
    It energises alot. Time can't stop, the only thing stops or starts is action, cause we can control it.

    "On average a person is born with 39,420,000 minutes to spend." That is really interesting. It is crazy that everyone dies, it is something I will never get over.

    Heres to more millionaires!
