The Professor

In a classroom full of students, a professor asks:

Let’s suppose that you had $86,400 and someone stole $10 from you, would you throw away the remaining $86,390 that you still have and try and get your $10 back? Or would you just let it go?

All of the students said that they would let it go.

Then the professor told them this…everyone has 86,4000 seconds to live every single day and this time is far more valuable than money. You can always work for more money, but once a second passes, you can never get it back. Every time someone upsets us, it probably took 10 seconds, so why do we throw away the other 86, 390 worrying or being upset about it?

Occasionally, we all make this mistake…so it is time to start learning how to let the little things go and focus on the important things in life.”

Great food for thought!
