Live the Second Time Now

 

Live the Second Time Now

I know that sounds pretty cryptic, and it is, so let me explain what I’m trying to communicate. Imagine for a moment that you’re really old, that you’ve lived a long, good life, and there you are on your death bed with less than 30 minutes to live. You think back over your life, and this is what you’re thinking, “If I could live my life over, I’d…”, and now you fill in the blanks. In other words, if you could live your life over, how would you change the way that you lived the first time? For some of you, it might be, “If I could live my life over, I’d spend more time…”, and now fill in the blanks. For some of you, it might be, “If I could live my life over, I’d spend less time…”, and now fill in the blanks. For some of you, it might be, “If I could live my life over, I’d learn to…”, and now fill in the blanks. I don’t care what age you are! You still have all of your future in front of you, and you can’t change the past, but from this point forward, you can change your future! I once read about someone who is older, I mean quite a bit older than I am, maybe 85 or so, and he decided to learn another language. When he was asked why he was learning another language at age 85, he replied that it was the earliest age he still had left. I like that! I also read that when Pablo Casals reached age 95, a young reporter asked him, “You’re 95 years old and you still practice six hours a day and you still work with a teacher. Why do you, perhaps the greatest cello player who ever lived, why do you still practice and work with a master teacher?” Mr. Casals answered, “Because I think I’m making progress.” The point I wanted to make is that regardless of your age, you’ve still got the rest of your life ahead of you, so from this point forward, make a conscious effort to live your life in such a way that you won’t look back and wish you had lived your life in a different way! Yes, live the second time now! You can do this, because this is how winners live, and you are a winner, and given enough time, you WILL win! Yes, you ARE a winner!

I know that sounds pretty cryptic, and it is, so let me explain what I’m trying to communicate.
