"You don't get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour." Jim Rohn
You get up. You go to work. Clock in, put in a day's work, and then clock out. You come home. Eat dinner. Maybe catch a little TV. Then conk out. And start it all over tomorrow.
The routine is nothing all that special, nothing all that great. It's just what you do. The same old grind, the same old stuff; just another day, another dollar.
Granted, some days are better than that; sometimes a whole better. There are days filled with fun. There are days packed with energy and excitement. And there are days you absolutely live for; days you cherish forever. But by and large, these super sensational days are the exception rather than the rule.
And that's not right.
"Be intent upon the perfection of the present day." Henri-Frédéric Amiel
What's your day worth? I'm not talking about how much you get paid, but how much is it worth to you? I'm talking cold, hard cash. Would you trade tomorrow for a hundred bucks? How about a thousand dollars, ten thousand dollars, a hundred thousand dollars or more? How much would it take?
I want you to get a number in mind. Zero in on the amount of cash it would take for you to completely kiss tomorrow goodbye. OK, got it? Now let me ask you a question. What if tomorrow was your last day on earth?
Would that change your perspective?
If tomorrow was your last chance to spend a day with your loved ones, your last opportunity to live life to the fullest, your last day to take in all the wonders of life and living, I bet you wouldn't carelessly throw the day away. Or let it slip right through your fingertips. And you sure wouldn't sell it for any price. You would embrace each minute with every ounce of your being, wouldn't you?
So why don't you treat each day with the same reverence?
"I thank you God for most this amazing day." e.e. cummings
Each day is here - and then, in the blink of an eye, it's gone. And once it's gone, it's gone for good. Try as you might, you cannot get back one hour, one minute; not even one second of days gone by.
You cannot recover the opportunities you squandered. You cannot rekindle the magic you wasted away. Or recapture the potential you frittered away. They're all gone... and they're gone forever.
That's why you've got to live in the now. And make the most of every moment at hand. Today is a super special, once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Today is a special twenty four hours you'll never relive again. Today is the only day that counts, the only day that matters, the only day you'll ever get to live.
You need to squeeze all of the fun, excitement and living you can from every single day... starting today. You need to live today with passion. Live it with purpose. Live it with everything you've got.
"Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most." Siddhartha Gautama
If your days just kind of blur into the next, if you feel like you're ho-humming your way through life, if it feels like your trapped in a big-time snooze-a-thon, maybe you need to change what you're doing - and how you are doing it.
And start living. Today!
When the new day dawns, you need to get up and really go get it. And go get it all day long. Live each minute. Love each hour. Never allow even one second to escape your grasp. Squeeze and squeeze and squeeze some. And make sure you make today a million dollar day.
The Bottom Line: Embrace each day as if it were your last.
