One Day is Yours
Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with
$86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening it deletes
whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you
do? Draw out every cent, of course!
Each of us has such a bank. It's name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you
with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you
have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows
Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of
the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no
going back. There is no drawing against the "tomorrow." You must live in the
present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in
health, happiness, and success!
The clock is running. Make the most of today.

is mystery Today is a gift That's why it's called the present!!
