The perfect gift idea.
There is an ancient Chinese proverb, which -- like all proverbs -- is rich in wisdom. It says: "If you want to know your past, look into your present conditions. If you want to know your future, look into your present actions."
So, as you are building your future, today, here's what you need to do to be successful. Take a moment to examine what you have done so far today and what you plan to do with the rest of it. Then ask yourself if you are really maximizing -- or wasting -- today's potential to build your golden tomorrow.
Of course, your previous actions mean a large part of your day is probably beyond your control. For example you will have work and family responsibilities, which automatically block out a large part of your waking day.
The key, at this stage is to work out exactly how much of your 24 hours is already committed and how much is still in your control. Then you need to establish where the available part of those 24 hours actually goes. Once you know that, you need to take a ruthlessly honest look to see if you spend that time on current pleasure or invest it in your future. On that simple choice hinges your future success -- or lack of it.
President Harry ("The buck stops here") Truman once said, "In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves. Self-discipline with all of them came first."
So make the decision, right now that every day you will do two things without fail, demur or excuse. Here are the two things you must do daily.
Work on your self-discipline. So when all you want to do at the end of a busy day is flop in front of the TV, make the conscious effort to skip a program and, instead, work on your success project. Like all habits, this can be learnt and it will get easier every time you practice. You will create a neural pathway in your brain, which is the precursor of all habits, good or bad.
Secondly, you must resolve to do something, no matter how small, every single day that moves you inexorably towards your goal of a better tomorrow.
A year from now, you won't even be able to recall what trashy TV program you decided not to watch, today, in favor of working on your project. But, a year from today, you will know the deep satisfaction of being 365 tiny, but concrete, steps closer to the life you really want.
