How often have you heard the statement – “there has never been a better time to join this business!” Whilst it is often said with sincerity, it can also feel a little cliched sometimes – almost sales pitchy. Europeans tend to turn off to obvious sales pitches. However, I have learned this week that there is a depth and scientific truth to that statement that I hadn’t considered before. When you hear what I am about to say, I am sure you will come away thinking that you need to change your priorities in a BIG way.
For context, please allow me to wax a little scientific 🙂 According to Professor Brian Cox our universe will eventually die. The arrow of time, the sequence of changes that slowly leads the universe to its death is the exact thing that create the conditions for life. How? Because it takes time for matter to form and time for gravity to pull it together into stars and planets and thus create life in the first place. This arrow of time creates a window – a very small window when life becomes possible. Here is the amazing statistic – As a fraction, the amount of time where life can exist in our universe from its beginning to its eventual end is one thousandth of a billion, billion, billion, billion, billion, billion, billion, billion, billionth of a percentage. Yes – I said billion NINE times! That number is rediculously small and yet – THAT TIME IS NOW! Of all the things that are incredible that are around us, the one thing that should inspire us the most is this very moment in time in which we now live!
In all of time and space, we have but an infinitely small fraction of time here upon this earth to use as we will. This time and this life is nothing short of miraculous. What are you doing with your time? How are you spending your life? Now is not the time to feel discouraged. Now is the time to feel amazed. NOW really is the best time to get going and put our shoulder to the wheel of good fortune and personal ambition. Time is literally too short.
Do you want to hear another interesting statistic? In the news yesterday, it was reported that an average of 20 stores per day are closing in the United Kingdom. 20 stores per day! What are they being replaced with? Payday loan shops and betting establishments. What does that tell us? It says that the conventional way of shopping is changing. It also says that people are in need of more money and they are looking in the wrong places.
We have the solution! Exclusive, needed products with a unique distribution channel that doesn’t lay people off or close shop. Income opportunities to match anyones need or ambition with minimal risk. Equal pay regardless of gender, background or belief. The chance for advancement without compromise. Yes, we have what people need.
With this new found appreciation of the value of NOW coupled with the reality of the desperate need people feel all around us – we have an opportunity to make a difference like never before. YES, the time is NOW. We have but a small moment in time to experience this life and an opportunity in front of us that will help us make the very best of it.
