Often times we want to start up a new project, a new endeavor, a new workout, a new diet, or a new goal because somewhere, something gave us some great motivation. And we get all excited about it and then we say ‘Tomorrow‘ I’m going to start.
Tomorrow I’m going to suddenly change and become this new person. Tomorrow… tomorrow… tomorrow…
It’s always something that’s going to happen. “Tomorrow it’ll happen because I’ll be ready.” “Tomorrow I’ll wake up early” or “Tomorrow I’ll have all of my stars aligned and then I’ll be able to make it happen.” Tomorrow… later… not today….
There’s an old saying in professional sports and it goes something like this:
You’re only ever as good as your last game.anonymous
What this means is that it doesn’t matter what you did yesterday or what you’re going to do tomorrow. What you’ve already done or what you say you’ll do doesn’t win championships. The past nor the future make any difference about who you are. What matters, what defines who you are, is what you’ve done today.
What have you done today? What have you done today to reach that dream? What work did you put in TODAY?
Most people are living day-to-day giving out somewhere between 40%-70% of what they’re actually capable of. We wake up slow, we start slow, we move slow, we do a thing or two… and we say, “Tomorrow I’ll feel better. Tomorrow I’ll get a good start and things will just go. Tomorrow will be different“
But this is a slow poison on the mind. When people do this, they are already setting the trap for their own failure because the truth is, there is no perfect start. There is no perfect time, perfect feeling, perfect level of energy, perfect level of motivation…. There is no aligning of the stars…
All that there is, is what you’ve done today. That’s it. What are you doing today, right now, that puts you ahead of everyone else? Ahead of everyone else that is fighting for that same dream.
If you think you’re the only person out there that wants what you want, you’re wrong.
While you’re thinking about doing what you want to do, other people are already out there getting theirs. Real winners are out there working and fighting for that 110%, that 140% every. single. day. And you’re still waiting for the perfect moment to even start.
Stop waiting for the right moment. The right moment is now. The moment is right now to go give 140% to what you’re after and what you want.
So ask yourself…
What have you done today?
