Create a great day

Today is a blank canvas upon which you can create a masterpiece. It’s not just a chunk of time to be endured. It is an opportunity to live, to experience, to learn, to build, to grow and to make a difference. Today is full of ways in which you can move forward. To look at this day with the goal of “just getting by” is an enormous waste of the possibilities which are open to you this very moment.

Right now you’re in a special place, a place filled with opportunity and promise. There’s something you’ll be able to do today that you’ve never been able to do before, and you may never be able to do again. Make the most of that opportunity. Fulfill that promise. Take advantage of the special circumstances while they’re here.

How many times have you wished that you had the world at your feet, that you had the opportunity of a lifetime? Stop wishing. It’s here. It’s called today. The world is indeed at your feet. So go where you’ve been meaning to go. Do what you’ve been intending to do. Now is your grand opportunity. Get busy creating the unique masterpiece of today.
