It was 10:30pm. I finished reading my definite chief statement (my goals) and I closed my eyes to sleep but a very powerful thought struck in my mind that there is no such thing called as tomorrow. Strange? When I was a student, I used to tell myself that I will do my work tomorrow and got lot of punishment (especially those embarrassing moments of parent-teacher meetings) from parents as well as from teachers because of this habit of procrastination. I notice that whenever I had used the word tomorrow it was not the work which I was taking to tomorrow, it was actually me, the person who has a habit to waste time to whom I was taking to tomorrow. It was the person who was living a mediocre life to whom I was taking to tomorrow.
Tomorrow actually doesn’t exist. It is a word which you use for communication. The same situation will be there, the same clock with the same lazy snooze button and you will again say 10 min! and in this way you will remain busy in delaying life and you will again forget to take advantage of the most precious gift which god had given you i.e. time. Time will become your servant if you will utilize it or it will become your master if you will waste it. You have only one life and you have a limited time on this planet. Use these days to shine, to build the life which you are interested in living, to spread the love which you want from others, to excel in your field, and to become the master of your fate.
Time once lost can never be regained. Tomorrow will become present and again in present you will use the word tomorrow and the change which you desire in your life will never come because you are not changing yourself. All success depends upon change because growth is impossible without change and if you will not change, nothing will change in your life.
Remember, change happens in present not in future because you live in present not in future. Every single minute of every hour is a chance to create a life you desire, is a chance to adore this one life which you have, is a chance to take your potentials to the next level and for doing this you need to take advantage of this chance.
Take control of this life before this life takes your control because if you will not design this life then this life will design you. You need to bring all changes in yourself in present only. If not now then when, tomorrow? Of course not! So make a habit of doing it now.
Progress will not come in your life if you will not change yourself. I know that change is hard in beginning but it is hard for everyone, no matter how much successful the person is but the best part is that change is gorgeous at the end. When child starts walking he falls down but then he becomes expert in walking.
Your success starts form you. Harry S. Thurman says a very profound point “In reading the lives of a great man, I found that first victory they won was over themselves, self-discipline with all of them come first”. The biggest attribute of the successful people is that they were having an ability to do the things they should do when they feel like not doing it. The stricter you will become on yourself the more control you will take from this life and by taking more control from this life you will take control of your success. I know there are many things which we dislike but our goals should always be above our disliking.
Self-discipline is not something which you will develop just by reading this blog but it is something which will take time as self-discipline is like a muscle. The more you will exercise it, stronger it will get. Therefore work with persistence and give yourself a commitment of developing world class self-discipline because it is how you can develop a world class life for you. A day, a month or a year but you will change and you will form the habit of doing the things which you don’t feel like doing and from that day your goals will become above your likings and you will start a new journey in your life.
