One thing you can be sure of is that time will pass along no matter what you do. You cannot speed it up, you cannot slow it, down, you cannot stop it, and you certainly cannot reverse it. Time is one of the most powerful forces out there. We cannot control father time. However we can control what we do with the time we have.
You see, most people will not go after long term goals because of the time it takes to achieve them. This is kinda silly really. It should not matter how long it will take you to achieve a goal because of two choices. One you can go after your goals and the time will pass along. Two you can decide to do nothing and the time still passes along. Either way time goes on. Would you rather do something with your time or nothing at all?

Master Johnathan, great point!
I think, especially in today’s society, many people are looking and are taught to look for quick results and instant gratification. What some people do tend to overlook is that it takes about 4-5 years to become great at anything. It takes 4-5 years to pass high school, it takes 4-5 years to get a college degree or a certificate from a program and it usually takes about 4-5 years to get a black belt as well.
As you stated above, the time will pass anyway, why not do something worthwhile!
Great post and well said!
