Champions are the consummate eternal optimists. They fervently believe, deep down in their hearts and in their souls, that their lives are destined to improve with each passing day. These top achievers are never satisfied with the status quo when they know, really know deep down inside themselves, that they can do so much better.
The very best have long ago learned that true happiness in life is derived from the sculpting, shaping and painting of their lives. These winners continually strive to make their lives more fulfilling, more satisfying and more rewarding. While they love the lives they live, they also derive tremendous pleasure in constantly touching up all facets of their lives. They are eternally engaged in the process of identifying ways to make themselves and their lives even better.
Each new day is a new chance to get better, to do better and to feel better than ever before. With each dawning day, we are presented with yet another opportunity to do a little touch up work on our own lives.
Never forget that your life is an ongoing work of art - a beautiful masterpiece in the making. You should insist on painting your own "self portrait" of excellence every day of your life. How could you ever live with yourself if you ever accepted a second rate or second best edition? No, only the best - your very best - will ever do.
Why not look for ways to improve yourself and your life on a daily basis? There will always be new approaches that allow you to do things better, faster and smarter than ever before. Why not give them a try today? In fact, why don't you pursue these new ideas with all of the purpose and passion you can muster right now? What have you got to lose?
Well maybe, just maybe, the opportunity of a life time. A life time of happiness. A life time of fulfillment. A life time that you've dreamed about for years.
These are life time opportunities that you simply cannot allow to slip through your fingertips. Come on, how will you ever know where your next million dollar inspiration will come from unless youre willing to explore untested approaches and uncharted territory?
When you are ready to put your best to the test, your best is yet to come.
