Two Big Ideas To Start Your Day

These are not new ideas. You are not going to read something you've never read before. But maybe you haven't considered that these two simple ideas may just be pretty big ideas after all.

1. You will only live today once. There will be no do-overs on this particular 24 hour time period, with this specific set of circumstances. Sure, if you mess up today, you will get another chance tomorrow, or the next day. But in an entirely new window of time. You will not get these exact 24 hours back. Make the most of it. Today. Not tomorrow. Now.

2. No one will have the same influence as you. Think about it: only you have your DNA, your personality, your skills, your sense of humor. There is no exact replica of you. With that in mind, don't think someone else is going to say it, or do it, (whatever "it" is). You have a responsibility to be a good steward of your influence, so use it. Do not under value your voice or your role in people's lives. You have a purpose. If you didn't, you would not be here; living and breathing.

So, what are you waiting for?
