Today is the most important day of your life
The decisions you make today will not just affect your tomorrow but will determine your future.
Everyone wants to have a good day, but not many people know what a good day looks like – much less how to create one. And even fewer people understand how the way you live today impacts your tomorrow.
It is the recognition that every opportunity you have tomorrow is determined by your intention, purpose, and skill today.
People tend to romanticize the past and dream of the future. It leaves them caught between a past that controls them and future that avoids them. While the past is important for education, you can’t be good yesterday. While the future is important for vision, you can’t be good tomorrow. Today is all you get.
Have you ever asked someone what he was doing and heard him respond, “Oh, I’m just killing time”? Have you ever really thought about that statement? A person might as well say, “I’m throwing away my life,” because, as Benjamin Franklin asserted, time is “the stuff life is made of.” Today is the only time we have within our grasp, yet many people let it slip through their fingers. They recognize neither today’s value nor its potential.
If we want to do something with our lives, then we must focus on today. That’s where tomorrow’s success lies.
