5. Listen to an interesting video and write your review, share your video and let us listen to it, either. 

It seems to me that this video was mostly not about the time, but about the fact that you can change.

It was said in video «Stop waiting for tomorrow, stop waiting for the perfect moment and start now, start believing, start dreaming and create the life and the person that you really want to see».

The most important thing I understood here it is the most important word in this life, that is «to belive».

If you want to achieve something, you just have to believe in yourself, believe in your own  powers, believe that you can be changed to the better and achieve better results.

What stops  you from waking up early? What stops you from creating new good habits? What stops you from cutting people out of your life that you know no longer serve you? That clock is always ticking and one day it won’t, you’ll meet the silence and this journey  will end and at that moment, when people look at your gravestone. When they come to your funeral , what do you want to be remembered for? What kind of impact and legacy do you want to leave behind through the lesson that is your life? And are you really living that lesson every single day? Stop waiting for tomorrow, stop waiting for the perfect moment and start now start beliebing, start dreaming and create the life and the person that you really want to see an be.
