How Is Today Different From Yesterday?

If you do the same thing every day, then you'll keep getting the same results.

Wouldn't you like for your today to be better than yesterday? Everyone wants that. But without changing the actions of today, you can only get the same results as yesterday.

It's simple: When we do the same things repeatedly, it doesn't matter that we live up to a 100 years old, life would simply seem like hours passing by.

But if we did something different today, then of course we can expect to see a different result. So I ask you: How is your today different from your yesterday? Are you still limited by the same thoughts, the same imaginations as yesterday, wouldn't you like to excel better today than you did yesterday? Bottom line: Keep trying to improve every day. As long as you don't keep doing the same thing.

This doesn't mean routine is completely bad. In fact, everyone needs to develop some sort of routine for consistent actions in life. But those should be for actions that push you forward in your other areas of life. Do not be scared to go further in other areas of your life.

Look around today at some of the limitations you have set for yourself and see what you can do to beat them. It is only a limitation because you have let it limit you. Once you stop letting it limit you, it is no longer a limitation.

Sometimes, we even set limitations for ourselves that are not tested. I cannot do this, I cannot do that. You stop yourself from doing a whole lot of things simply because you think you cannot. Someone once said: whether you think you can or think you cannot, you are right. So whatever decision you make today, you are right. You are right to follow it, right to accept whatever the condition is. But also, you are right to break out of what is limiting you right now and enter the land of no limitations.

Only you can make that decision today. Start now. Start today. Live a life that is different from yesterday. You'll appreciate yourself in the end.
