It is never too late to define and refine your talents.  Time is something we all have to learn how to use wisely because if we don’t, time has a way of getting away from us before we realize it.  Have you ever looked back over your life and wondered where the time went?  It seems like only yesterday when we were excited and anticipating the election of the first black president.  Some of us thought it would never happen in our lifetime and it was only a distant dream; however, it happened!  Now we are 7 years into President Obamas presidency.  Where has the time gone you might be asking yourself?  Well, time has done what it usually does---keep on moving.

That is why it is so important for us to keep moving forward because time waits on no one.  As long as you are looking back you can never move forward, but time is continuously moving on.  If you are ever going to do anything or accomplish your goals you have to start right now.  If you sit back and try to figure out what happened and why you haven’t been able to accomplish your dreams, you will never do it.  Thinking is a great thing, but action is the only way things get done.

I have found good ideas are never given in a vacuum.  This means you aren’t the only one coming up with a good idea.  The person who gets the benefit of a good idea is the one who plans to make their idea a reality.  Reality is something you can see, taste, touch and feel as well as share with others.  You can share your dreams with a few people, but a dream alone can’t accomplish everything it should if it’s not brought to reality.

Time is the great equalizer.  No matter who you are, or what you have, everyone gets the same 24 hour day to get the job done.  How much you are able to achieve depends on how much time you are willing to invest.  No one will invest more in you than you are willing to invest in yourself.  Take the time to figure out what you want and need to do, then do it!  It’s just a matter of time.
