Make The Most Of Every Opportunity


Hello beautiful people. How is Y’all doing? Trust your weekend is going great. Very often I tell my students to always make the best use of their time. Time is one of the most valuable commodities that we have. You can make money, but you certainly can’t make more time. The scripture tells us to redeem the time. That simply means don’t waste it.

Don’t live this day unfocused, undisciplined, and unmotivated. We have a responsibility to use our time wisely. We are not always going to be here. This day is a gift. Are you living it to the fullest? With purpose and passion? Pursuing your dreams or living in a fantasy? Are you distracted? Indifferent? Just doing whatever comes along?

Are you in a job you don’t like? Hanging out with people who are pulling you down and bringing out the worst in you? That’s not making the best use of your time; that’s wasting the time. Just like you spend money, you are also spending your life. It’s either you’re wasting your time or you’re investing in it. Which one is it for you?

The first step to making the most of your time and every opportunity is to set goals; short and long-term goals. Ask yourself; what do I want to accomplish this week? Is it attainable? Where do I want to be in four years from now? What do I need to achieve it? Don’t go another three years on a job you don’t like but sadly, this may not be possible because the economy of the country continues to relapse and thereby affecting the will to do so.

Nevertheless, keep the dream alive. Quit doing things you’re not passionate about and start doing things that are profitable and meaningful. Life is flying by. This is your one shot. You don’t get a do-over. We can’t relive our twenties or thirties. You’ve got to decide what memory you want to relish tomorrow, today. Remember, once this day is over, we can never get it back.

If you’re going to reach your highest potential, you have to be an “on purpose” person. You know where you’re going, you’re not vague, not easily distracted, not waiting to see what happens. You’re focused and making the most of every opportunity. Let me put it in more practical terms: Staying on social media for hours a day and playing catching up on the latest gossip is not making the most of your time unless it fetches you money.

Talking on the phone for hours a day to a friend who’s not going anywhere and has nothing doing is not making the most of your time unless you print recharge cards and print your money. Don’t be vague and thoughtless, but live purposefully and accurately.

God has given you a present. It’s called “today”. What are you going to do with it?

Love you guys 😊

Peace and Blessings

  1. Hey Whitney, great read!

    I’ve been on this topic of staying on the path to pursuing your dreams as well, because I feel like people focus too much on the wrong things. They give the wrong things all of their time and energy and as a result there’s nothing left for themselves. It’s so important to stay true to yourself, and align your morals and values with what you choose as a career.

    It is your life, and how you spend your time is super important! We have to shift our focus to utilizing our time for the things that truly matter!

    Hope you continue to have a great weekend, thanks for this!
