Happy Wins-Day, my dreamers and doers!
Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to making progress. Yesterday, I was talking to one of my mentees about life and its meaning, and during our conversation, we began to talk about purpose and progress. The conversation started because every time we speak and I ask him how everything is going, he always says…”Same ol’, Same ol'”.
Normally, I accept this as a greeting, but for some reason it stuck out to me yesterday! As we continued to converse, my concentration was on the greeting, and in my mind, I thought, “Why are we satisfied with the same old things every single day?”…
What I realized is that to many life is a routine. We live and try to survive and are of the thought process that if it ain’t broke, then we aren’t going to fix it! The problem with that type of thinking is that you close yourself to all the good that life has to offer! Essentially by keeping things the same, what we are saying to ourselves is that we are OK with the bare minimum!
Life is abundant and life is progress!! The only place that it is OK to stay the same is in the cemetery! We must immediately get out of the habit of letting life just past us by and taking it as it comes! We are the creators! We must be constantly creating and making our lives better by maximizing our full potential! STOP STANDING STILL AND MAKE PROGRESS!! And when I say progress, I mean not being in the same place… Many people mistake motion for progress but if you’re moving and not going anywhere, you are still standing still!! Live life to the fullest!! NOTHING CAN STOP YOU BUT YOU!!
