Maximize Today

I saw a quote recently that simply stated, "Tomorrow is too late, yesterday is over and now is exactly the right moment so start." I found it quite profound. Too many of us are heavily focused on the past and spend an extremely large amount of time focused on the future such that we miss the opportunities that are right in front of us today. "Tomorrow, I'll start exercising. Starting next month, I'll change my diet and make healthier choices. Next semester, I'll start looking into that college degree. On January 1st, I'll start that business I have been planning for the last five years." The list of promises we make to ourselves and put off time and time again are endless. Why do we constantly put off until the future what we know in our heart of hearts we should get done today?

I'll tell you why. Many of us want "stuff" we are not willing to truly commit to. We want things without paying the price required to get them. We fail to realize that any kind of success we will have will be dependent on our daily agenda. No-one becomes successful by accident and if you are wondering, winning the mega-millions is not an example of true success. If it was, many who win will not be flat broke in a relatively short time. How we live today - what we choose to do, has a profound effect on our future.

With this in mind, let's start maximizing the moment. Don't put anything off anything you can begin right now till tomorrow. Success is not a mystery that is only available to a chosen group of people. There is no magic formula to it and overnight success is just a fairy tale. True lasting success is accomplished minute to minute and day by day.

We can all have some measure of success in our lives if we will just be committed to doing the right thing at the right time. So what exactly are you putting off until 2019?
