There’s Nothing Special About Today
There’s nothing special about today. There’s nothing special about this week. There’s nothing special about this month.
It isn’t the start of a new year. It isn’t the perfect time when the stars align just right. There’s no magic in the air that’s going to help you.
But you don’t need any of that, anyway. You never did.
This can still be the exact moment you decide to make a change.
Today can be the day you start a new journey in life: A journey to start a business you’ve always wanted to start. A journey to move somewhere in the world you’ve always wanted to live. A journey to jump into (or out of) a relationship. A journey to build a better version of yourself.
Living an intentional life, where you call the shots, doesn’t happen because that decision coincides with the start of a new year, month, or week. It happens because you decide it happens.
Nothing worth having comes easily.
You didn’t get into your current circumstances overnight, and you won’t get out of them overnight.
It’s going to be hard.
It’s going to take effort.
It’s going to take sacrifices.
Hardly anything worth doing in life is going to happen by consuming more information (via social media, news, etc). You have all the right tools, all the knowledge, and all the time you’ll ever need. You just need to be willing to take a chance. You need to want the outcome more than you fear the reality.
Make today the day.
