What you do today has a direct affect on tomorrow. Unfortunately, while most people want to have a great tomorrow, most are not willing to invest in today. It is as though they are hoping when opportunity knocks that they will somehow magically be prepared. However, if you hear opportunity knocking on your door, and are not prepared, it’s too late to get prepared. Invest today in preparation so you are ready for the opportunity.
Make A Decision
Make a decision right not that you are going to do all you can today to invest in fulfilling your potential, that you are going to be all that God created you to be. This means that you are going to have to get out of your comfort zone and begin investing today in your future. How? It’s simple, you have to make a commitment to growth, personal growth. That may mean getting an education, a mentor, or reading a book. The process of growth will be different for everyone, but the start is always the same: make a decision.
Take A Risk
There is no getting around it, great tomorrows require you take a risk today. Don’t wait for perfect conditions to get started. Waiting for perfect conditions to invest in your future is a lot like waiting for all of the traffic lights to turn green before you will leave your home for a vacation – it will never happen. You have to get on the road and start taking the journey.
There will be obstacles in your way, some red lights, as you invest in growth today for a great tomorrow. Put on your creative thinking cap to come up with solutions for these. Ask others what they would do to solve the problem. Research, ask, Google…get creative, there are solutions.
Seize The Opportunity
When you are prepared, you will have opportunities come your way. Get ready to seize them. When you are prepared, you will have less stress and trepidation to do whatever is necessary to make the most of the opportunities that come your way.
No one is hoping or planning to get to the end of life only to look back and realize that they were not prepared for the opportunities and be full of regret. You don’t want that for you. You have the desire to live your potential. Start investing in growth today for a great tomorrow. It’s your choice!
