You’re probably like most people who begin their day by repeatedly pressing the snooze button. Am I right? The blaring and sometimes startling sound of the alarm clock certainly adds to the negative reception of the morning. After several grueling minutes and the inevitable end to the battle between you and your alarm clock, you finally drag yourself out of bed. You have officially started your day on the wrong foot.
How you start may not always determine how you finish but that should not prevent you from starting strong. The sooner you realize that you are in control of how you receive the day, the sooner you can start your day with purpose. Wake up and be thankful. Wake up and receive the day as an opportunity to get closer to achieving your dreams. Wake up and greet the day with enthusiasm.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift; that’s why it’s called the present.” Unwrap the gift that is today and start walking with purpose. It is difficult to reach a particular destination if you aren’t sure if you even want to go. Live a life that’s full by walking in the understanding that your blessing is right around the corner; meet it half-way.
The first step is taking the first step.
To The Top!
