The Magic Bank Account

Somebody sent this to me the other day which I hope you will find worth reading.


Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use.

However, the prize has certain rules attached, which are:

1.         Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.

2.         You may not simply transfer money into some other account.

3.         You may only spend it.

4.         Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.

5.         The bank can end the game without warning; and say, “Game Over!”. The account is then closed forever without replacement.

What would you personally do? You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right? You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

Actually, this game is REAL

And each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*.  It’s just that we don’t always see it.

The prize is *TIME*

1.         Each morning we wake to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.

2.         And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is Not credited to us.

3.         What we haven’t used up that day is forever lost.

4.         Yesterday is gone forever.

5.         Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING…

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds? These seconds are worth so much more than the equivalent sum in dollars.  Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by much quicker than we appreciate.

So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life! Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day.

Start “spending”….
