Are you Taking Care of Today?

Today is the most transformative day of your life. I wish I could tell you that it’s tomorrow or it’s next week or it’s next month or it’s next year but if I did so I would be lying to you and also allowing you to continue to believe that the magic sauce that exists in your transformation exists anywhere outside this present moment, on this day.

One today is worth a thousand tomorrows

People think that one tomorrow is worth a thousand todays, and that’s so unfortunate because there is nothing in life that you can accomplish that gets accomplished tomorrow. And here’s the reason why: when that tomorrow comes it will be another today. There is no such thing as tomorrow. All it is is a present moment that has not arrived yet. And by the way, it only arrives if we’re lucky. Who even knows if that tomorrow ever comes? Today is the day that we must transform our lives, and most people sleep on that. Most people forget about that. I mean, think about it this way: as adults watching this, some of you are very responsible, some of you are not very responsible, some of you go in and out of responsibility. I’m sure you have a to-do list, correct? Nothing wrong with that.

Today is All that Exists

We all got to-do lists. How many of those things on your to-do list have been there longer than a few days? One of them? Five of them? 10 of them? Here’s a fair question: when are you going to get to them? Let me guess, tomorrow! Oh today’s Saturday, so there’s no way, today’s my rest day and then tomorrow’s Sunday, it’s Super Bowl Sunday, so I can’t get to my to-do list tomorrow because it’s a really important day. Alright, so maybe you’re going to get to it on Monday. How many Mondays have you said that? One, two, 10, 52 of them? 104 of them? 206 of them? I don’t know, listen man, am I taking care of today? Bottom line. And some people do and some people don’t. Some people believe that today is a valuable, important day in their life, and some people think that today is not as important as tomorrow. Keep living that way and let me know how it goes but I promise you this. The day you realize that when you start taking care of today and the responsibilities which today has for you is the day that your tomorrow will start to become more beautiful, more powerful, more open to experiencing opportunities and growth. Some people do it, some people don’t. I know for a fact that today is the most important day of my life. People who say, “what do you mean? It’s just a random Saturday in February today,” doesn’t understand what day of the week it is today, doesn’t understand what day of the month, what month of the calendar it is today, doesn’t even understand what year it is. Today is all that exists. Take care of it. 

Whenever you realize that you’re not taking care of today just know that you’re not taking care of your life. Because it’s all you got. And because all of them who I know start taking care of today and it’s in certain people’s lives. A lot of parents start to just invest in their kid and invest in their kid and invest in their kid and one day they realize, “man I ain’t investing in myself.” But tomorrow doesn’t have to be a mystery. Because if I take care of today, even though I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow I have a little bit more influence on the quality of that tomorrow, right?

Today has the ability to actually transform our tomorrows.
