Take a moment to think of this – If the average person lives 70 years (made that number up) that is 25,550 days.
We have a very limited time in this life: 25,000 – 30,000 days!
Even the longest lifetime (110 years) is 40,150 days and their life was made up of single days.
All we have are TODAY’s!
What we do with our TODAY’s ultimately shapes our lives – for better or for worse, it is your choice.
Most people just survive:
- Go through the motions
- Not thinking about thinking
- Do not think twice of what they are doing or why they are doing it
- Do not debrief themselves about their day or events
I do not know about all of you but I do not want to JUST survive. I feel as though if I am surviving, I am failing. The best part about failing is that it gives you feedback that you can learn from by:
- Changing your thoughts
- Changing your actions
- Calibrate your behavior to what you want to be
- Ask for help from people who have already done it
We all need to get into the habit of:
- Think about what we are doing
- Think about why we are doing it
- Think about our current thoughts
- If they are negative, consciously change them to positive thoughts
This alone will help us boost our:
What can I learn today, and how can it make my life better?”
Remember this quote next time you are in your biology class when all you want to do is art or business. All those pointless classes help your GPA and in turn, your future options with colleges and jobs.
Asking yourself this question makes a big difference in the long run because your brain will be engaged looking for new beneficial information instead of just existing passively. This is a great success habit to get in. The best time to start any new productive habit is TODAY!
Make it an effort to ALWAYS LEARN
- Why am I doing this?
- What do I want to accomplish?
- What do I want these people to know?
Whenever you can direct your focus and engage your mind, you will be much better off”
