There will come a day

There will come a day when your innermost imaginings will become your outer reality. What are you choosing to imagine right now?

There will come a day when your habits will be so firmly ingrained that they’ll carry you along without you even thinking about them. What kinds of habits are you working to develop?

There will come a day when you’ll suddenly encounter a magnificent and wonderful opportunity that’s just perfect for you. What are you doing today that will prepare you to make the most of that opportunity?

There will come a day when all the superficial concerns fall away. What are you doing in this moment to give real meaning and purpose and substance to life?

The things you do today affect not only today. They build you and prepare you and position you for all the days that will come.

That makes this very day your most important opportunity. For the person you choose to be today is the person who will carry you forward toward all those days that will surely come.

— Ralph Marston
