Why You Should Stand Up Today, Or Sit Forever

Stand up today. If you messed up yesterday, stand up today. Today is a day of opportunity. It is a day to make up for what you missed yesterday.

It is okay to fall down, but it is not okay to stay there. If you fall down, rest, think, plan, and keep moving. Don’t stay where you fell down. Don’t allow yourself to settle for less. You are bigger, greater, more intelligent than you think you are.

You will fall down. You will make mistakes. But don’t let them define who you are. You are greater, smarter, bigger, and better than what you think.

When you fall down, when you make mistakes, when you fail at something, take it as a time to think, and start again.

When you start again, try to not repeat the same mistakes again. DON’T MAKE IT A HABIT. Don’t worry about your mistakes. Worry about not doing anything to change your life. Worry about not growing in life. Worry about not doing what you are supposed to do to move forward. Those are the things you should spend your time thinking about.

As I said before, it is okay to fall. I fell before. I have done things that I am not proud of. Am I going to sit there and start crying? Hell, no!

For the fact that we are all learning, we are going to fall down from time to time. Our focus is not to stop us from falling, but to reduce how we fall. We are going to be making mistakes everyday. If you cannot make mistakes, take it or not, you cannot grow. You cannot learn. If you can make mistakes, then you can grow.

If you can fall, you can get back up. If you don’t fall, how can you learn how to stand back up? You must first fail to learn how to succeed. You must first fall to learn how to get back up. If you have not failed before, you won’t know what failure really means to you. It pains!

If you fell yesterday, start today.

If you failed yesterday, start today.

If you did not do well at something yesterday, try to do your best today.

Today matters.

Focus on what you are doing today, not what you did yesterday, and not even what you are going to do tomorrow.

Today matters.

If You Want To Get Anywhere In Life, You Must Know This One Thing Very Well

One of the reasons we live is to get things done. But to get a lot of things done in life, there are so many things that have to come together to make them happen. If you get this one thing right, you will reach your goal faster than you ever imagined possible.

“All successful people have a goal. No one can get anywhere unless he knows where he wants to go and what he wants to be or do.”- Norman Vincent Pearle

What is this one thing? Wherever you want to go in life, you need something to get you there. You can’t start going without this one thing. In order to do well in life, this is what you need to know: LEARN HOW TO SET SMART GOALS. Nothing else. If you master the art of goal-setting, you have mastered everything.

To move from point A to Point B, you need to have a plan. You need to have a goal. If not, you are not going anywhere. Even if you manage to go somewhere, you are not going to go too far. You need a goal to reach your destination.

“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the actions steps.”- Confucius

Your goal is your road map. It is your plan that will get you to where you want to be. It is the plan that will move you from where you are now to where you want to be. In order to make this happen, don’t set goals that you can’t achieve. Set small goals, not vague goals. You must set a realistic goal for yourself. The people who are doing well are those who set great goals for themselves.

If you set great goals for yourself, there is nothing you cannot achieve in life. Set one for yourself, and commit yourself to making it a reality.
