The Bank Account You Didn't Know Exist

Bank Account You Don't Know Exists
Ever dreamed of having a healthy bank account of your own? Do you find it sweet? Now what if there's actually a bank account that credits your own each morning with a lot of money? If you don't know about this bank yet, it's OK. Don't panic. Nope. This bank isn't BDO or BPI (or one of those commercial banks) we have in the Philippines.

Let me share with you more about it with a short story from an unknown author:

Imagine a bank account that credits your account with 86,400 Pesos. It carries over no balance from day to day. Meaning, every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day! What would you do? Draw out every peso, of course! But the question then would be, How do you plan to spend your 86, 400?

Each of us has such a bank called 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 a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. 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 drawing against

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who just missed a train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask someone who just avoided an accident.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. And remember time waits for no one. There is a saying, Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why its called the present.

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.
