The Ultimate Secrets of Total Self-Confidence by Dr. Robert Anthony
“Unquestionably, time passes quickly. Every moment that goes by is a time in our lives. Since our entire existence is composed of time, it is of the utmost importance that we consider the emotional significance in how we use it. “I'm awfully busy,” “I'm in a hurry,” and “I just haven't the time” are three large nails in the coffin of happiness. Continually rushing through life precludes the development of a personality of strength and beauty, and robs life of its savor and flavor.
Every morning beyond our bedroom windows there is fresh air, trees, mountains, fields, or parks. But we rarely ever see them. We turn right over and go on sleeping or simply jump out of bed and rush off to work. And when asked why we keep this helter-skelter pace, we insist that we do not have enough time to do the things we want to do.
Time becomes our master. Yet we must learn to master time instead of being mastered by it. We must stop being time's fool. Neither waste it, nor get caught up in the “no time” syndrome. Instead, we must learn to control it and make time for the important things in life. When we snatch the whip of hurry from the hand of time, we regain self-mastery.”
