Ive got some great news to share with you. Ready? OK, here goes. Today will be the absolute best day of your entire life. That's right, there's no doubt about it today is going to be your best day ever! How in the world can I sit here and make such a wild prognostication? Because I know that today is the only day of your life.
While each of us can fondly remember the good times we have enjoyed in the past, we must come to grips with the stark reality that yesterday is gone for good. By the same token, tomorrow is never promised to any of us. All of us, each and every one of us, live in the present right here and right now. That is precisely why today is the day - the best day - the one and only day that counts.
Does that mean you should forget about your past? No way. Champions are renown for their capacity to glean valuable lessons and garner significant insight from their past experiences. Hey, its perfectly OK to fondly reminisce about pleasant memories and to rekindle and relive some of those past magical moments. Your past has been and always will be your best teacher. The key is to never remain in the past. Today is the magic day it holds the key to your success.
For just a moment, I would like you to leap ahead in your mind and visualize what your life will be like one year from today, five years from today and even ten years from today. How does this picture look?
Are you where youve always wanted to be in life, doing what you have always wanted to do or alternatively, are you merely 1, 5 or 10 years older but no closer to obtaining your goals? Getting older but failing to get better wont get you where you want to go.
How would it feel to be able to actually "script" your life from this point forward? What heights could you attain if each today was better than the day before? Can you possibly imagine how good it would feel to have your dreams of a better, more fulfilling and rewarding life become a reality today?
You can most certainly have everything and do anything you truly want in life when you are willing to enjoy one remarkable today after another
everyday of your life. The real winners realize that today is the best place to start living the lives they have always imagined. Come to think of it, it's the only place to start.
Heres wishing you a power packed day, every day, all day long.
