“Live Today Better than Yesterday.”
The one thing I am always reminding myself of is to make sure that I am “Living Today Better than Yesterday”.
I try to make sure I am growing, improving, learning from the experiences that come my way, and doing things that will allow me to take steps in the right direction day after day.
I can’t say that I always get it right 100% of the time, but having this goal has definitely helped me make continual progress and grow.
And, I know I need to always remind myself to “Live Today Better than Yesterday” because there were too many years that I just wasn’t doing it. I was a little too complacent. I accepted the status quo. I got caught up in my ways. I was comfortable doing things the way I always had.
It’s not that things weren’t working or falling into place in my life, but I can honestly admit that I wasn’t “growing” as much as I could have been.
But, you live and learn … right?
life really is all about growth
I am not sure exactly when it dawned on me, but one day I woke up and realized that life really is supposed to be about growth.
Our relationships are supposed to grow and deepen. We are supposed to make progress when it comes to our goals and dreams. We are supposed to understand more and have more clarity on who we are and what our purpose is.
We are not supposed to be caught up in holding patterns and we are definitely not supposed to move backwards when it comes to any aspects of our life.
Essentially, we are supposed to get better and better at “living”. That’s the object of the game.
living today better than yesterday
So, “Living Today Better than Yesterday”, is my new measuring stick for every single thing in my life.
Am I doing things better today than I did yesterday? Am I further along this year than I was last year? Am I moving in the right direction?
And, I am so hoping you will join me and also commit to “Living Today Better than Yesterday”.
Because this is really how we are going to make those things we want happen. It is also how we can stay focused on doing those things we know we should be doing when it comes to our relationships, our careers, our goals, and all the other things in our lives.
It sets us up to continually make progress day after day and to always be on the lookout for anything in our life that isn’t satisfying that standard.
the possibility of today:
Remind yourself today that every aspect of life is supposed to continually improve and get better. Granted things may not always go the way we planned, but in one way or another everything should be progressing and moving you forward.
Don’t set your bar too low. Don’t settle.
If you feel like you aren’t moving forward in a particular area, it is time to do something about it. Don’t run on the hamster wheel of life (it doesn’t matter how fast you are going if you aren’t going anywhere).
how do you do it?
1. Don’t let life just happen: Take the time and clearly define your vision for the things that are important to you? What do you ultimately want to accomplish in each area of your life? You get to decide, so make sure that you do.
2. Commit & GO: Make a commitment to yourself that you will pursue and make progress in every area that is important to you.What are the steps you can take? Start taking them Today.
3. No Excuses: Realize the time is now…not tomorrow, not a year from now. Don’t make any excuses or overlook the importance of moving forward. It is time to go.
