The 28,835 jelly beans on this video represents the average American life span, each being representing a day in our lives. “You might have more beans in your life, or maybe less, but on average, this is the time we have,” the voice over of performance artist Ze Frank tells us.
Just think about it if your life equals 28,835 days, what will you do with that time?
“Don’t waste your time on foolishness or foolish people. Time is the stuff of what life is made of, and your life is extremely valuable to you…to your family…and to the world. Guard it at all costs. Life is full of attractive distracting foolishness which will waste your time, and deplete your much-needed energy.
Foolish people do not like to own responsibility for their decisions, and never see the impact of their actions and choices on their lives. They will try to recruit you into their madness, and will attempt to convince you to pay their bills, pay their way, and solve their problems. They don’t listen to anyone, and are always right ~ even thought their life is in shambles.
Let others be satisfied with being spectators, complainers, and victims. You are a player on the field of life. You have dreams and goals that you are determined to achieve. You have drive and a desire to make your life matter. There are things that others find very enjoyable which just don’t fit who you are. Be focused, relentless, and HUNGRY to make your life count.
You have GREATNESS within you!”
– Les Brown
This poignant video shows us the importance of making the most of our time and not take our days for granted- every moment counts. “How much time have you already spent worrying instead of doing something that you love?”
What if you just have one more day?
