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.

Are You Doing Something That Matters?

If you are not doing things that matter to you, to your life, you are just wasting your precious life. You can’t build yourself by doing things that don’t matter. You can’t get to where you want to be by doing things that are not going to get you there.

If you want to be successful in your life, you must “start something that means a lot to you.” If what you are doing right now doesn’t mean a lot to you, you are just wasting your time. Don’t waste your own time. It is your time. Don’t waste it on things that don’t mean a lot to you, to your dreams. Suzy Kassem writes, “Start something that means a lot to you.” If you want to grow your life, if you want your boss to keep you, if you want your boss to promote you, if you want to start your own business, you must start something that means a lot to you. Without it, you are not going anywhere. Without doing something that matters, you are not going to reach your final destination (if there is one).
