Though no one can go back and make a brand new start my friend, anyone can start from now and make a brand new end.

The MONTHLY Motivator - February 2008

Finding value in each day

What do you desire from life? What are your dreams, your goals, your ambitions? Think for a moment about the most ideal life you could imagine for yourself. Where would you live? What people would be around you? What would you do with your time? What things would you own? What kind of work would you do? What challenges would energize and inspire you? What contribution would you make to the world?

How do you get from where you are right now, all the way to that ideal place in life that you have imagined for yourself? There is only one way, and that is by making full use of the days and the moments available to you.

Right now, you have what it takes to begin pursuing any goal you’re able to imagine. And what is that? What does it take? It takes one day, one day at a time. Right now you have one day with which to work, one day in which you can begin to add value to your own life and to your world.

Achieving your goals and creating the life you envision for yourself is a matter of making the most of each day. To get where you want to go, you must get the most value from each moment and from each day. And getting the most value from each day is accomplished by putting the most value into each day.

So let’s look at how to do that.
