Why A Single Day Is Enough To Change Your Life

Mario Andretti said, “If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.” So what are you waiting for? Are you waiting for the right time to start? If you are waiting for the perfect time to get out of your comfort zone, stop waiting. The train is living your station. You must do whatever it takes to catch your train. Run!

Stop getting ready. Paul Klee said, “A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.” Is it really possible? Of course, it is possible. It can be done. But you must start. And you must start today. Don’t fear. Don’t doubt yourself. The most important thing is to believe in yourself. Stop waiting for the right time to make yourself bigger, smarter. Start now.

Stop waiting for the right time to go crazy. Because everything is changing. Success doesn’t come from waiting for the right time to change your life. It comes from getting your hands really dirty. It comes from actually doing the work.

You must do the work. You must face your reality. You must embrace change. You must do what you are afraid of doing. You must be comfortable taking risks. There is no perfect time to make mistakes. Start today. You can start today by changing how you do your things, how you make your decisions. Because you cannot change your life without changing your thoughts.

And if you really want to change yourself, you must stop thinking about the past. Remember that you are no longer living in the past. You are living in the moment. This moment needs you. If you are not present with yourself, how can you change your life?

Is Hard Work Enough To Win

What separates high achievers from others is hard work. As Sam Ewing once said, “Hard work sportlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.” You can’t succeed without hard work. The question is, “Are you giving your best?”

Remember that to get the best, you must give the best. And you can’t give the best if you don’t know what you are good at. To know what you are good at, you must assess yourself. You must develop the ability to assess yourself. You must find out what you are not good at, what you are really good at, and you must turn your weaknesses into your power.

Whatever you are doing right now, no matter how difficult, do not give up. As Thomas Muller once remarked, “All things are difficult before they are easy.” If what you are doing right now is not going according to your plan, keep doing it. It will get better. You will win if you don’t give up. Helen Rowland said, “You will never win if you never begin.” You have what it takes to change your life. Don’t talk yourself out of it. Be hopeful. Thomas Fuller said, “Great hopes make great men.” Be happy. Keep pursuing your dreams. That is why you are here.
