Today | April 28, 2009

In a word “TODAY!” can be a real motivational icon. I have had bosses say that one word and a flurry of activity ensued. People scurried to accomplish something that may have been overlooked or mismanaged. If you are not self-motivating type maybe you need somebody to utter that to get you off the dime. Let me be that kick in the pants for you Entrepreneurs. No more “READY; SET, Set, set, set…. TODAY… GO! Action is the only thing that accomplishes anything. Selling something starts a chain reaction in your world. Get the gears moving and take a step. If the prospect says NO, you won’t die. You will learn something and because you are a quick study!!! The next time, you will be better. Make a difference to your business… TODAY!

Jim Zea shared these thoughts:


Today, I will delete from my journal two days: yesterday and tomorrow. Yesterday was to learn from and tomorrow…well that will be the consequence of what I can do today.

Today, I will face life with the sure knowledge that this day will never return.

Today, is the last opportunity I have to live intensely, as no one can assure me that I will see tomorrow’s sunrise.

Today, I will be brave enough not to let any opportunity pass me by, my only alternative is to succeed.

Today, I will invest my most valuable resource: my time in the most transcendental work: my life…

Today, I will spend each minute passionately, to make today a different and unique day in my life.

Today, I will defy every obstacle that appears on my way, trusting I will succeed.

Today, I will resist pessimism, and will conquer the world with a smile and a positive attitude of always expecting the best.

Today, I will make of every ordinary task a sublime expression,

Today, I will have my feet on the ground understanding reality and the stars’ gaze, and thus will invent my future.

Today, I will take the time to be happy and will leave my footprints and my presence in the hearts of others, not just in the sands of time.

Today, I invite you to begin a new season where we can dream that everything we undertake is possible and we fulfill that dream, with joy and dignity.

Today, why not perform a random act of kindness?

And, if there are those that you love, tell them, you don’t know when it might be your last pportunity.
Tell them…today.
