Yesterday is a history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift.

01 Jul

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day.
What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course!

Each of us has such a bank. It’s name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow.” You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success! So, the clock is running!! Make the most of today.

Bottom Line: Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why its called the present.

    They put the exact phrase (Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery and Today is a Gift Enjoy it) on the memorial of Alan Burton Hall. Hall died of a heart attack after saving a young girl in Florida.
