Great Morning Mantra

While at a conference this past week, I received a card with the following quote on it.  Take a second to think about it.  I have not been able to get it out of my head since I got it last Thursday.  I have made a printout of it and it’s on my bathroom mirror.

Yesterday, I was flipping channels and stopped on the “Real Housewives of wherever”.  I watched about 15 seconds, thought about this quote, turned it off and fired up Netflix and watched an interesting documentary.

I have thought about my daily routine and have started to look for ways that I can replace useless activities with something better.  Things that feed my mind and soul.  I’ve already replaced the talk radio stations with books on tape.  Read this through and give it some thought for your daily life.  You may just find some opportunity for change.

“This is the beginning of a new day.  God has given me this day to use as I will.  I can waste it or use it for good.  What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain and not a loss; good, not evil.  Success, not failure in order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it.”
