There Is No Tomorrow
There Is No Tomorrow
Listen to me right now!
You’re going through the motions and I’m sick of it. I can look right into your eyes and know that you’re lying to me and lying to yourself when you tell me you are giving your very best.
Do you remember:
When I challenged you in the gym, and you backed down?
When I stared you right in the eyes and you looked down because you were ashamed?
When your son or daughter asked you to get off the computer and you said, “One more minute.”
When your boss gave you an assignment and you did the bare minimum?
When you were going to start working toward your goals and you didn’t?
When you told your trainer you were following your healthy eating plan, and you lied?
When it was time to be a man and you failed?
I challenge my athletes and I challenge myself everyday. Do we always dominate the challenge? No, but that is NOT the point. The point is when someone presents you with a choice, or life throws you a curve ball, do you waver? Or, do you dig in and give it everything you’ve got. I don’t care if they win the challenge, I’m looking for that fire, that “never back down” attitude showing me that they are living every moment to the fullest.
This is not a joke.
Your life is flashing before your eyes and every time you blink it is 1 year later, 5 years later, 10 years later, …
I’ll start working harder tomorrow.
I’ll spend more time with my kids tomorrow.
I’ll work toward my goals tomorrow.
I’ll be the man or woman that I aspire to be tomorrow.
Here comes the cold hard truth.
There is no tomorrow.
Time is our most precious commodity and we never get it back. It just keeps ticking away and there is nothing we can do about it.
What we can do something about is our attitude toward life’s challenges and using our small successes to empower us to greater things.
If you think I am crazy or I’m too extreme, then this post is specifically for you. Because the people reading this post, nodding their head and getting fired up, already get it.
Do not waste your life. Live it to the fullest and NEVER put anything off until tomorrow.
Because tomorrow is not guaranteed and how you react to a challenge speaks volumes about how successful you will be in everything you do in life.
I believe in YOU. Now it is your turn.
