The Danger of TomorrowMay 28, 2018
How many times have you caught yourself saying, “l didn’t get to it today, I’ll do it tomorrow.”? A lot I’m willing to wager. If I’m not careful, I find myself doing it too. Why is this a big deal? Because when you put off what you could do today you’re making excuses, creating stress, and living a life less than you’re capable of and designed to live. That’s the danger of tomorrow.
The past is gone and nothing you think, do, or say can bring it back. All you can do is realize that the life you have today is a result of decisions you’ve made in the past. More importantly though, you need to know that your past doesn’t have anything to do with your future. If you don’t like your current circumstances and want to make tomorrow better, all you have to do is make different choices today. Wielding the power of choice and taking action NOW makes you feel more in control, and reduces stress because you’re not playing the victim; you’re owning your life and making something of it.
Putting anything off until tomorrow is a bad habit that you need to avoid at all costs. The graveyards are filled with unrealized dreams because of this. Understand from the very fiber of your being that today is all you have. Know that EVERY action you take is either moving you towards the life you’re meant to live or away from it. There is no such thing as coasting or treading water, you’re always in motion; either you’re running your life or you’re allowing circumstances to run it for you. You’re going to run into resistance and you’re either going to push through the resistance or allow the resistance to take you somewhere you don’t want to go.
The object of life isn’t to win every day; that’s just not possible. No matter the outcome at the end of the day, if you know you did your very best and work to make your best better every day, then you can walk away with your head held high knowing just how AMAZING you are!
