It takes courage to live. And to live your life, you must have confidence in yourself. You must have confidence in your abilities to live your life in the present, in the moment, in the now.

Appreciate yesterday, but enjoy today. Today is all that you have right now. If you lose it, it will never come back to you.

Do not waste your time. Because you cannot go back, you can only go forward. In the words of Paulo Coelho, “No one can go back, but everyone can go forward. And tomorrow, when the sun rises, all you have to say to yourselves is: I am going to think of this day as the first day of my life.”

Yes, today is the first day of your life. Today is a new day. Today is a new life. Today is a new beginning.

Whether you want to believe it or not, you have the power to change your life. Because every day is a new opportunity to live a new life. Every day is a new chance to reinvent ourselves.

Every day is a new start. It is an opportunity to run your own race. Today is your day. Live it.

Where you are today was created yesterday

Where you are today was created yesterday. What are you creating right now? Are you creating the life you have always wanted? Are you preparing for that job interview? Or, Are you just wishing tomorrow will be better than today?

You can wish all you like. If you don’t prepare for what you want, what you want will never happen. Wishing cannot change your life. Your life will change if you have the courage to take action, to prepare. You prepare for what you want and need in your life. You can’t get it by just wishing to get. You succeed by working hard and smart for what you want.

You cannot grow more than your thinking. If want to do great things in life, don’t wish for it, plan for it.

“It is never too late to plant a new seed.”

What you are doing today will lead you to that place you want to be tomorrow. You are making your tomorrow today. If you want your tomorrow to be better, you must do great things today. If you want to be financially free, start saving money today. Stop spending more than you earn. If you want to work for a great corporation tomorrow, start studying hard and smart today. If you want to live in peace, start giving people peace. If you want to be happy, start making people happy. If you want to be healthier, start balancing your diet. If you want to own a business, start planning for it today. Whatever you are doing right now, you will get the results tomorrow.

“It is never too late to change your life.”

James Joyce said, “I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I established today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day.”

What you are reaping today was the seed you planted yesterday. What you will reap tomorrow is what you are planting today. Whatever you sow, you will reap. If you sow something good, you will get something good. If you sow something bad, guess what, you will reap something bad.

“It is never too late to build a new career.”

Today, I encourage you to check the things you have been doing to yourself. It is never too late to plant a new seed. It is never too late to build a new career. It is never too late to meet a new person. It is never too late to change your life. It is never too late to change your mind- from negative to positive. It is never too late, and it will never be too late.
