Today Is Your Day

motivation Feb 19, 2020

There is no time like the present. In fact, now is all you really have. In every moment you have an opportunity to do something great, to do something kind, to be a shining example to others. 

When you wake up in the morning, ask yourself:

How do I want to show up in the world today? That answer will influence the way your day unfolds, the way you show up to your family, friends, colleagues and everyone around you. 

Then take action on this intention – words and thoughts are not enough. Take action on being kind, on being focused, determined, healthy. Take action on being a better parent, friend, brother, sister, a better partner. When you become intentional in your life you don’t accept life, you design life.

Stop making excuses or pointing fingers for things not going the way you want them to and instead take responsibility for yourself, for your feelings, your behaviour and your results. The only person stopping you from doing better today is you! 

You are in charge of your destiny and that starts here and now. 

Right now, you have an opportunity to make today a day you’ll never forget. This moment is a new beginning, a fresh start and a chance to start over and wipe the slate clean.

Just focus on today, not what happened yesterday, not what you think tomorrow will bring. Focus on the here and now and that will impact the rest. 

Notice how moment to moment things in your life change when you begin to show up in the way that best serves you. Imagine how choosing to be focused will show up in your work and projects. Or how showing up as being kind will impact how you treat someone you know or someone you meet for the first time. How about showing up today with gratitude, with compassion, with drive? How will each of these impact today?

I know that life’s difficulties and stresses don’t make it easy to always show up positively. However, through these difficulties, there is always an opportunity to grow and to change – and this is when you must choose to be and do better for yourself and others. It all happens in this moment, today, all you have is now. 

Decide today that you will no longer allow other people to determine how happy you will be. Decide today not to settle for anything less than you deserve, which is love and joy! Decide today not to settle for the average and to be extraordinary at whatever it is you do.

What if you decided to show up today, committed to doing one random act of kindness? Or to be more loving, more fun? It only takes one moment, one decision, one action to change today for the better. Just ONE! Before you know it, your days become weeks, weeks become months and moths become years filled with joy, bliss, adventure. A lifetime filled with love, kindness and compassion.

Start each day with this question and make it part of your morning ritual, “how do I want to show up in the world today?” or “how can I be the best version of myself today?” Then take action! Do something that will positively impact your day. Remember, it only takes one moment, one decision, one action to change today for the better. 

Today is your day, this is your time, this is your moment, what are you going to do with it?
