My grandson turned 7 today.
It’s hard to believe another year has passed; they go so fast.
It seems like he was born yesterday.
But another year has passed.
They always do.
The time will pass whether or not we want it to, whether or not we plan for it, and the only exception to the rule is a worse alternative.
While we can not control whether or not we’ll actually live another year- nor that, assuming that we do, it will pass; we can control what we do with the time alloted us.
What goals will we set and get? What new positive habits and changes will we make?
What progress will we create?
What will we do with the 24 hours we have in a day, the 8,760 in that year?
How will we invest it? Or how will we waste it?
Who will we spend it with?
The answers to these questions and more are how deliberate living is done.
Success doesn’t just do itself.
You have to plan your work and work your plan. You have to surround yourself with positive and like minded people.
You have to believe and take action in the direction of your goals and dreams.
You have to do something different to get a different result.
‘Tis the way of my people.
Prepare To Live; Empower To Lead!
