“Today is going to be a great day!”
Every morning that I get out of bed, the first thing that I do is go in the bathroom, brush my teeth, look in the mirror, and tell myself that today is going to be a great day.
When I first started telling myself that today was going to be a great day, there was a part of me that was hesitant in actually believing that this little trick would make any amount of difference in my life. I mean, c’mon, looking in the mirror to hype yourself up for the day, what was I thinking.
WHAT TO FOCUS ON
After months of saying starting my morning out the same way, it has now become something that I actually believe. Yes, I genuinely believe that today is going to be the best day of my life, and that tomorrow is going to be even better than today. Why? Because all I have to do, is make it better than yesterday.
Imagine that. Imagine doing everything in your power just to be one step better than yesterday, and to be one percent happier than you were yesterday. Every single day, your life would be better. It probably isn’t going to drastically improve your life overnight, but at least it will be a step in the right direction.
Whenever I was stressed out or simply having a bad day, my dad always used to tell me to “grind.” Part of me knew what that meant in the sense that I just had to keep pushing forward. But at the same time, part of me was also confused. What was I supposed to do differently?
After hearing this saying countless times, I finally decided to ask what he meant when he told me to grind. Not only was he surprised that I had never heard what GRIND stood for, but his response to my question would immediately become one of my favorite acronyms.
G – Get
R – Ready
I – It’s A
N – New
D – Day
WHAT THIS MEANS
GRIND means that yesterday has already come and gone. No matter what happened yesterday, today is a new day. And no matter what happens today, tomorrow is going to be a new day as well. So don’t spend your time focusing on the things that have happened in the past. Focus on what it is that you can do to make sure that every day is the best day of your life. All you have to do is make sure that today is better than yesterday, and that tomorrow is better than today. Pretty simple concept if you ask me.
Do you want to hear something really cool? Get this! Every morning, you and I are gifted with a fresh start. That’s right, a fresh, clean, and blank slate to paint any picture that we desire. Whatever happened yesterday will only impact us if we allow it to. Maybe yesterday sucked, and maybe life slapped you across the face. Well get ready, because today is a new day. Maybe yesterday was great and you want every day to be that great. Well get ready, because tomorrow will be a new day as well. A new day where despite what has happened in the past, you have the ability to make it better.
MAKE TODAY THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE
None of us will ever be able to change what happened yesterday or the day before. But every day moving forward from here on out, we all have the opportunity to live and create the life that we have always wanted to live.
Focus on growing and bettering your life each and every day. Learn from the past, let go of the things that you can’t change, and love this incredible life you are are blessed enough to have. Go out there, kick ass, and make today the best day of your life.
