Seize the moment – there’ll never be another just like it

Men spend their lives in anticipations,—in determining to be vastly happy at some period when they have time. 
But the present time has one advantage over every other—it is our own. 
Past opportunities are gone, future have not come. 
We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer the tasting of them too long, we shall find that both are soured by age.

Charles Caleb Colton

Human nature often makes us think about the past, or dream about the future, and too often, we forget about the here and now.
Subconsciously, ‘what if’ can dominate. 
We think about what might be different now if we had done something different in the past.
We think about what will be different in the future if we do something different now (or at some indeterminate future time)
But all too often, we don’t take action right now.
We drift through life, following some invisible path, ‘going with the flow’, but seldom taking the actions that will change us in a positive way.
Many people make the effort to save now for an annual vacation next year – taking positive action now to achieved a desired outcome in the future, investing in their future pleasure.
Yet how many of those people will invest in their future development?

One of the key mindset differences between rich and poor is the way in which they treat their disposable income. 
The rich tend to invest first and spend what’s left over. 
The poor tend to spend first, and only invest if there is anything left over.

Remember that an investment is anything intended to bring profit in your future. 
It can be as simple as sowing vegetable seeds or saving for your retirement. It can be as complicated as investing n stocks and shares. 
It can even be a direct investment in yourself, signing up for an evening class or learning how to do something you’ve always wanted to do. You can simply invest in your physical health by taking regular exercise.
The type of investment doesn’t matter. The key is to invest in your future if you want it be be something you desire.
