Every day is special
Live each day like there’s no tomorrow! Every day is special; make it count!
Do you find yourself sitting at work, at your desk, wondering why you still haven’t checked off skydiving, going to the top of the Eiffel Tower, or exploring the inside tombs of King Tut of Egypt’s iconic pyramids? As we keep chasing our deadlines, go about our tasks, and get on with life, we tend to lapse into a zone of timelessness. Days and dates stop mattering. It’s what we are to do to finish this hour and how we can catch up with the next, leaving us with limited time to achieve our personal goals, fulfill our hopes, and make our dreams a reality.
This stress-driven approach does not give us much time or reason to look back afresh, recharge ourselves, reboot, and get out to face the world with a new perspective and to achieve more. Once we orient our minds to pause frequently, we will be more productive and positive and do more. Each day is as fresh and new as it can get. Pristine, promising, and positive - a blank canvas you can leverage as you wish, leaving an imprint that could enrich your life. It’s an opportunity and a time of immense hope.
Grab life by the horns and never let go!
Most often, we tend to invest too much of our time in looking back at our past, either fondly or with regret. We tend to spend a lot of time dreaming of the future. What we need to realise is that we have no control over our past and definitely not much over our future. But we have the present! This day! When we can get up, change our mindset, feel charged, think smart, meet the right people, say the right things, and leverage that day to the maximum. So, we're satisfied in the end. Think about it: one good day motivates you to be positive about the next. This means you need to value each day, feel special, and make it count. Tomorrow is never an assurance and won’t be unless you give it all you’ve got and maximise today.
The Time Value of Money
Today is your day and has immense potential to transform you or take you on the road to success, helping you realise your dreams. Preparing yourself for the day all begins with doing your best to feel good: a walk, meditation, a Pilates class, and a cup of coffee. Wake up fresh. Get moving to finish your chores. Have a plan for the day with a list of things to do. Determine to do them and not procrastinate. Time is money!
Look after your mind and body, and they’ll look after you.
Then comes the grooming part. Something really important. You need to feel great, and to do that, you definitely need to look good. Everyday physical activity is vital; do what you love: dance, yoga, a walk with your dog or friends, etc. Wear the clothes you love; what you think you look great in, don’t dress for others; wear your favourite brands on your sleeve – literally!
The power of the sense of smell
Last but not least, leverage the power of smell! You must feel confident and exude a positive aura wherever you go, and the right perfume can work wonders. Choose what you wish to wear and what you want others to perceive about you. There are a good number of perfumes in a range of fragrances and notes available. Lemony, woody, sandal, fruity, pungent, strong, musky, and more...
Wear one, get into the feel, and get going.
To end things on a lighter note, yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today has infinite opportunities. Decide on what you wish to do, what you want to accomplish, and what impression you wish to leave others with about you, then go on and live the most important day of your life, starting today!
