November 17, 2007.
"This is the day the Lord had made. We will rejoice and be glad in it."
The other day I heard someone ask a friend, "How are you doing?" Rather than mumble back some half-hearted response like "I'm OK" or "Not too bad" as some of us have on occasion, he excitedly proclaimed, "Outstanding! Every day is a great day." I saw the fire in his eyes and felt the electricity in his voice. I could tell he wasn't just saying it; he MEANT it.
There was nothing timid or remotely blasé about his answer - or his attitude. Instead of lazily easing his way into the day as we all do from time to time, he had already jumped in with both feet; establishing an upbeat and optimistic approach right up front. It was plain to see that he was already having a great day - and having the time of his life as well. This man had a sensational attitude and super sensational approach to living.
"If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind."
Norman Vincent Peale
His enthusiastic passion for living instantly brightened the room the moment he entered, his booming proclamation piercing the stillness like a bolt of lightening from out of the blue. His answer lit up his friend's face like a Christmas tree - and I, for one, wanted to bottle it up whatever he had and take it home with me. It was that moving, that powerful!
What this individual had was all-out take no prisoners approach to living. A single-minded will to win, to succeed, to accomplish something truly spectacular today. An unshakable, unbreakable, unmistakable commitment to excellence that can not be stopped, let alone slowed down. He knew what he wanted - and he intended to get it. Not sooner or later, but right this minute. An approach, I might add, that each of us should readily embrace.
He let it be known that today was a super special day and he was committed to making the most of every moment. And so should we.
So what kind of day do you want today? An extraordinary day, a terrific day, maybe even a once-in-a-lifetime day that you'll never forget? Regardless of what you'd like the day to bring, it's there for the taking if you're willing to go out and get it. But if we're going to make each day something special, we've got to become special ourselves.
"There's only one way to succeed in anything and that is to give everything."
If you are ready to experience a fabulously phenomenal day today, then why not get the ball rolling by kick starting your day right from the get-go? By exhibiting a positive powered approach all day long, you can generate powerfully positive results from start to finish.
What have you got to lose, except maybe another hum-drum, ho-hum day, totally forgettable day? Life's most incredible adventures always begin with that very first step. So why not take it and see where it takes you?
"Today, you have 100% of your life left."
Don't worry about what you haven't done or opportunities you may have missed in the past. The past is just that, the past. So let it go. Each new breaking dawn brings with it a hint of magic in the air, something super extraordinary just waiting to happen. Today is your brand new day, your fresh chance to start anew; yet another opportunity to make something truly amazing happen right now.
You need to geared up for an astonishing, awe-inspiring, absolutely amazing day today and then get going. Don't just sit there; get up and make something amazing come to life - right here and right now. If you truly desire a 'wow' kind of day, you've got to show some wow power all day long.
It's time to stop sleepwalking your way through life and start boldly living each day for all it is worth, giving it everything you've got. When you finally unshackle yourself and start making the most of every moment, you're going to have the time of your life - one great day after another.
The Bottom Line: Every day is indeed a great day, a wonderful day, a truly memorable day with your name indelibly etched into it.
