Success has to be scheduled one day at a time and today is the most important day for achieving success. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow has not yet arrived. Today is the only day you have to work with, in other words, you have to achieve success today!
A small business owner recently told me “if only I had been born into a wealthy family, I wouldn’t have such a hard time getting new business”. He was telling me that wealth would attract his target audience. Other business owners share “the big deal” they had several months ago as their measure of success. Others put all their hope in tomorrow being better, and then success will become a reality.
The only true measure of success is the success you achieve today. Each morning when you wake up, write down a success you want to work towards and achieve today. I have a writing by Thomas Willhite on my desk that I came across in the late 70’s; it reminds me how to live my today.
“This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it – or use it for good, but what I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, and not loss; good, and not evil; success, and not failure; in order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it.”
Don’t create a complicated plan for your daily success goal; keep it simple and work towards it’s accomplishment.
One today is worth two tomorrows; what I am to be, I am now becoming.
