Invest Your Time With The Right People

Saying “right people” infers that there are wrong people out there. I don’t believe there are wrong people. I don’t believe there’s bad people. I just believe that some people are not right for us right now. Maybe they will be, one day. I’m not telling you that certain people within the home or the recovery space in their world are wrong or bad – they’re definitely not bad. But if someone comes in and they’re focused on transforming their life and they want to do better, live better, become healthier and heal, and live a life that’s different from their past, and there’s someone else in the community that’s just not there yet. Maybe they’re there by force but they have no intention or desire to change their life, maybe they have a mom and dad that just really wants them there and they don’t want to be there, and they’re doing it to appease them – they’re just not ready. That doesn’t make them a bad person or the wrong person – it just makes them the wrong person right now. Because their values and their goals and their direction are different. There might be people in your life that aren’t bad but they’re not just right for you right now, so invest your time with the right people.

Time is the Most Valuable Commodity

Investing your time means you’re investing your most important and valuable commodity. Time is the most valuable thing human beings have – yes, it’s more valuable than money, yes it’s more valuable than anything else on this rock we call Planet Earth. I mean, I’ve met some very high socioeconomic status people and guess what? All the money they got can’t buy them more time. Take two duffel bags of cash into South Coast Plaza into the nicest boutiques in America and walk in there and say, “hey, I’m here to get some time,” they might try to sell you a $40,000 Rolex but ain’t going to give you more time. It’s just going to show you what time it is that day. Time cannot be bought, time can’t even be invested, you can’t put your time in a safe account somewhere in Switzerland and 10 years down the line have double the time, it ain’t work that way.

Time is Fair and Equal

And time is very fair and equal because all human beings have only 24 hours within this thing we call a day, no matter who you are. So how you use that time and how you invest that time and what type of a budget you set for that time, yes there is something called a Time Budget. How do you budget your seconds, your minutes, your hours, your days? Are you wild with it? Are you reckless with it? Are you impulsive with it? Or do you use it wisely? Do you plan and prepare to maximize and optimize and have the most efficient use of your time to get you to where it is you’re trying to get in life? Invest your time with the right people. Most people’s successes and failures can be traced back to the relationships in their lives. Most people – I’ve said this countless times in the past 15 years and I’ll continue to say it again – I would not be here if it wasn’t for the sacrifice and the not-giving-upness of other people that didn’t give up on me when I gave up on myself. I trace my success to that – simple as that. You are the same way. 

There are people in your life that have been influential, inspirational, monumental in specific moments. You wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for that. You might think you would, but this version of you wouldn’t be here so invest your time with the right people.
