What if You Won $86,400 Every Day For Life?

I received this article last week from someone who is like a father to me.
This is an incredible reminder.
Please pass it along.

Imagine you have won the following prize in a contest:  Every morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account.  However, this prize has rules.

The first set of rules:
  1. Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.
  2. You may not transfer money into another account.
  3. You may only spend it.
Every morning, the bank puts  another $86,400 into your account.

The second set of rules:
  1. The bank can end the game without warning.  
  2. It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you do?
  • You would buy everything you wanted... right?
  • For yourself, and everyone you love... right?
  • Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself... right?
  • You would try to spend every cent... right?

Actually, this game is REALITY!  Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can't seem to see it.
The magical bank is time!
Each morning we receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.  What we haven't lived up that day is forever lost.  Yesterday is forever gone.  Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your  account at any  time....without warning.

What will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?
Those seconds are so much more precious then gold.

Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much more quickly than we think.


How are you going to spend your 86,400 seconds today?
