On the wall of a pub, there’s a sign. “Free Beer Tomorrow”
Tomorrow doesn’t exist. It’s a concept, a way of thinking. The only reality is the ‘NOW’.
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”
– Jim Rohn
You can expect and hope, but if you don’t take action now, it’s only dreaming.
Nothing great has ever been created without actions.
Always do the best you can right now.
“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.”
– Bradley Whitford
Action in the ‘NOW’ will not always bring good result. But if you keep going on, you’ll get better and you’ll get better results.
Actions a linked to a need.
Taking action can be hard. Even more when the reason is not good enough.
Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.
You have the power to overcome your fear.
“A great future doesn’t require a great past.”
– William Chapman
“I am not what has happened to me. I am what I choose to become.”
– Carl Jung
You’re not what you did, you’re what you do right now.
Tenacity: Being tenacious, holding fast, persistence.
Finding good reason to give up will never get you anything good. Giving up can be used to learn and grow. But if you let it become a habit, you’ll end up losing a lot.
“You can’t give up! If you give up, you’re like everybody else.”
– Chris Evert
Be persistent in doing what needs to be done every day. Make a list of the most important one, and start with one at the top.
It doesn’t matter if you do them all every time, as long as you do the most important first.
Most people will over estimate what they can do in one day and under estimate what they can do in a year.
Small step done every day will matter more than one big step done once in a while.
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
You can build something great doing a few small goal every day.
Are you hiding your fear behind the excuse of not knowing what you should do?
A lot of people are not going for their dream because their fear is larger than their drive to achieve it.
The “I don’t know how to do it” is among the top reason used to quit on dream.
“Trust yourself, you know more than you think you do.”
– Benjamin Spock
You have more knowledge than you think.
Your instinct is sharp. It will give you good advice.
“Work hard, use your common sense and don’t be afraid to trust your instincts.”
– Fred L. Turner
Trust yourself and always look for a way to do it better.
“Excellence is the unlimited ability to improve the quality of what you have to offer.”
– Rick Pitino
How did you react when you found yourself facing difficult time?
Do you understand that you can’t change the fact? It’s in the past.
“Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass… It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.”
– Vivian Greene
How you react is your special power. You always have choices. Sometimes, they’re not as you would like them to be. But you do have them.
Too many people are taking a road that has been set before them by others. They think that it’s way better when it’s easy. It’s an illusion. Nothing is easy. Even if it looks like it.
If you think that not choosing is the way, then you are still choosing. What you choose is to not choose.
You are influencing your happiness.
Stop expecting others to make you happy. Choose to be happy whatever happens.
“My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.”
– Michael J. Fox
We all have to face difficult times. It’s up to us to choose how we react.
“Never give up, and be confident in what you do. There may be tough times, but the difficulties which you face will make you more determined to achieve your objectives and to win against all the odds.”
Actions are the fuel into your happiness. Some will work and others won’t. Keep going on anyway.
“Every day is a new day, and you’ll never be able to find happiness if you don’t move on.”
– Carrie Underwood
Being idle won’t prevent the bad days.
Maybe it’s time for your to “Take Control” of your life!!!
