Focus On What You Can Do Today

According to Dan Rockwell, “Focus on what you can do today. You never know when difficulty or adversity will end.” Focus on what you can do today to change your life. Somethings matter, others not. Focusing your life on making your life better matters. It matters. You are here on this earth to make your life better. You are not here on this earth to exist, but to live. You are here on this earth to make your life, not to exist.

You can’t make your life better if you don’t focus on what matters. If you want to do great things, to live a great life, to improve your life, you must focus on what matters. What really matters? What really counts? Health matters. Love matters. Relationship matters. Education matters. Good work matters. Creativity Matters.

Friedrich Nietzsche said, “He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.” If you know why you are here on this earth, you must focus on it. Don’t waste your time on the things that is pulling you back from achieving your goals. Things that can’t help you are not good for you. You need to focus on making peace with your soul.

If you don’t know where you are going in your life, you can focus on anything. But if you want to move your life forward, you must focus on the right things. To do that, think about what is getting you closer to your dreams, and focus on making it even better. Can you do it for yourself? Can you do it for your life? If you can, the right time is NOW!

Why a true friend? No matter who you think you are, where you are, what you are doing, you need a true friend. You need someone who is not afraid to tell you what you need to know, hear, and do. A true friend is who you need in your life, if you want to grow. Don’t ignore your true friends. Love them. Accept them. Celebrate them.

To really understand why you need a true friend in your life, here is what William Penn said about it: He said, “A true friend unbosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably.”

A true friend:

  • Will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear
  • Will enjoy life with you without fear
  • Will be there for you when you need him or her
  • Is not in a hurry to get things done
  • Will always fight for you
  • Will continue to be your friend, no matter what.

You need a true friend. Stop celebrating those who are not celebrating you. Stop praising those who are not praising you. You must let go of your false friends. They are not helping you. If you really want to help yourself, you must create a space for your true friend to come in. If not, you will continue to praise those who are not praising you. Do not do that!
