“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
Every day we are given a unique opportunity to grow and learn. At the end of my day, it’s for me to say that I didn’t do anything to make myself a better person than I was yesterday. That’s a lost opportunity I will not gain back.
A couple of questions I like to ask myself at the end of every day is:
1. What did I do to make myself a better person than yesterday?
2. What did I learn today?
Even if it’s nothing more than a friendly thank you, a random act of kindness, a shared smile, an encouraging word to those we love, each of us has these moments to make a difference and to be the difference. Numerous people go through the day never hearing and receiving a loving and positive message.
The words we manifest daily into action might be the only positivity a person receives that day. Each of us has a moral, ethical and virtuous responsibility to lead ourselves and serve our families, businesses, and foundations with compassion, grace, empathy, and humility.
We should sincerely continue to remember and recognize the preciousness and urgency of this present moment. May we view our time today as an opportunity to discover our purpose, growth, and ways we can be of service to others as we get better and learn. Each of us can develop solutions to today’s hurdles that will be tomorrow’s opportunities.
Never stop believing, asking the question ‘Why?’ and being unique.
