What do you want for your future? Do you want something beyond what you currently have? Do you want to be someone more than who you currently are? Do you want to grow? Do you want to succeed? If we want to become more tomorrow, we have to start with today. So many people go through their lives waiting for tomorrow to be different. The only problem is that they don’t change today. I am willing to wait for tomorrow to be different, but I realize I must make the change today.
We can’t expect to stay the same today, and have tomorrow to be any different. Patience and waiting are difficult. Both of these are tremendous assets. They aren’t beneficial, however, when we are waiting for something to happen and we don’t take action. Jim Rohn said, “The next ten years will be the same as the last ten years, if you don’t make any changes in your life.” Why don’t people realize that? Why do they think they can go about living their lives the same every day and expect change?
If we want tomorrow to be different, we must start with today. Tomorrow will never be here. Yesterday is gone. We can’t live for the tomorrows of our life. We have to live today. We need excitement and anticipation for tomorrow, but we can’t wait to act until tomorrow. We need to learn from our past but we can’t live in our past. You are at where you are at because of your past; that doesn’t mean you have to stay there. We don’t have to like where we are at, but if we do nothing about it, then we are choosing to stay there in our future.
I hope you can make the changes today. I hope you can learn from the yesterdays of your life. I hope you can dream, plan and anticipate your future. It all boils down to what you do today. Successful people are those who take advantage of today. Significant people are those who help others take advantage of today. Become both successful and significant. Develop the future of your choice. You might be in one spot today, but you can change all of that for tomorrow. You can wake up in Japan tomorrow, but you have to get on the plane today. You can be successful tomorrow but you have to start today. You can be in shape tomorrow, but you need to start today. It’s all about today. What are you doing today? What actions can you take today? What steps towards your future will you take today? Don’t wait until tomorrow; take advantage of today!
