First Page of Your 365-day Book!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Home Buyers Realty, LLC-Manchester, Bolton. Vernon,Ellington 0788174

"January 1st or today is the first blank page of your 365-page life book again. Write the best one. Start with a defining vision then build your compelling goals around it. 

 

The past doesn't really matter anymore; what matters are what decisions and actions you will take right now, and every 'NOW' thereafter, which defines your future. So make every 'now' count.

 

As the saying goes, if not for the mistakes we have made, we won't know what works from what doesn't. Remember that Thomas Alba Edison failed tens of thousands of times to perfect the light bulb only to say, "I have not failed. I've just found10,000 ways that won't work."

 

This was borrowed from a colleague of mine to usher in the beginning of 2020.

 

The only line I would change is "Write the best one." Instead, I will adopt 'Write the first best one today. Then each day, you challenge yourself to beat the best one yesterday.'

 

Everyday is an opportunity to be better. So why don't we compete with ourselves each day?

 

Happy New Year Everyone! May we all have the best year ever, and years thereafter!

Wise words by Thomas Edison!

Remember that Thomas Alba Edison failed tens of thousands of times to perfect the light bulb only to say, "I have not failed. I've just found10,000 ways that won't work."
