Yesterday You Said Tomorrow

Yesterday you said tomorrow.

Guess what today is?

 

Tomorrow you’re going to go to the gym.

Tomorrow you’re going to start running.

Tomorrow you’re going to start writing that book you’ve always dreamed about.

Tomorrow you’re going to quit your job and start your own business.

Tomorrow you’re going to __________.

Have you said any of these things to yourself today? How many times did you actually do “that thing” the next day? Did it wait until the next? Or the next?

Well, there is no such thing as tomorrow. Tomorrow is just an illusion. If you go about every day with the mindset of “Tomorrow, I’ll do this or that”, those goals will always be a few steps out of your reach. The way to change that is to ACT NOW. Seize the moment and live today like it’s the last chance you get to do what you’ve always wanted, to say what you need to say, and to be who you want to be.

This brings me to the Nike quote:

Well, guess what today is?

You guessed it. Now do something about it!

 

If you are the type of person that puts things off until tomorrow, STOP. Right now. I mean right now. Do you have anything left over from yesterday’s agenda that you need to take care of? I know I have a huge list. But seriously, stop putting things off until the next day. Be efficient at life — Do it NOW.

Try to imagine an environment where you actually did everything you said you were going to do. Can you visualize and see how awesome that would be? Do you want that life? Well what’s stopping you? Every obstacle you face in life can be turned into some sort of opportunity. You just have to change your way of thinking to see it.

Reflect on this:

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

— Romans 12:2 (NLT)

 

Change the way you think today. It will surprise you how much easier things get.
