Don’t worry about tomorrow, just be great today

Don’t worry about tomorrow, just be great today

The path to greatness is step by step

I love this thought Jon Gordon tweeted a few days ago:

Don’t worry about your greatness in the future. Just be great today.

Most of us want to be great. We think about all the great things we want to accomplish in life. We have great goals and great ambitions. We want to reach the end of our lives and be able to think about the great life we have lived.

But these kind of thoughts can be crippling. We can’t control things that far out. So many things will change between now and then.

What if instead of worrying about things we can’t control, we shifted our attention to something we can? Like today. And how we choose to live thisday.

Let’s be great today. Let’s make good choices. Let’s give our all. Let’s be bold and passionate and committed today. Let’s live with integrity, practice honesty, and walk wisely today.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring? But today we can choose to be great.

And as we do that, day by day, soon we’ll be able to look back on a great life.
