The Haves and Have Not: 24 Hours in a Day

haves and have notSo much is going on in life that it is easy to fall victim of depression and self doubt.  Current situations are not always what you intended them to be and more than likely can become so overbearing that you lose focus of a hopeful future.  We all have been in situations where the light at the end of the tunnel seems nonexistent. But it comes to a point where we have to be our own cheerleader and root for ourselves.  As the Tyler Perry show depicts, the HAVES and the HAVE NOTS, we have to consciously determine which side are we on; the Haves or the Have Not.

Recently, I was on a celebrity’s Instagram and it said “do not hate on my success, we all have the same 24hours.”  I want you to think about that quote for a minute. Think about how true and accurate that is. Of course, we all come from different backgrounds and have different mitigating circumstances BUT we all have 24 hours to get things done. It all depends on what you chose to do with those 24 hours.  According to best author Robert Greene, of 48 Laws of Power, in his newest book Mastery, he explained it takes a minimum of 10,000 hours to master a skill. How many hours per day are you dedicating to your craft/skill?

I, too, have to check myself and turn off the TV and snap out of the lazy syndrome and get to work. It happens to the best of us, but it’s those that SNAP out of it that make it to the top.  As we come to the end of the year and reflect, did you fulfill your 2013 resolutions? Did you achieve your goals? If not, write out the goals you missed and find out the reason WHY you didn’t complete them.  Sometimes knowing the WHY is necessary to ensure that you don’t repeat it.

We all have our lazy moments but let’s not make it a habit.
