The lights flicker.
Like a shot of adrenaline, you begin to feel the imaginative juices and hope for a better today. Yet like the lights flickering away, today gets in the way of the potential better today. Confusion sets in. The adrenaline has run its course through your veins and you need another shot to get that high that you just experienced. The high that today, is the first day of the rest of your life.
We have all heard people (mainly on TV) that have made that statement. They decided to make a change one day and it was a new beginning. There was no looking back. So why is it you and I make a decision and then fall back into the habits of today that keep us stuck in the days of yesterday? Why can’t today be a new day; a day that is tackled, that is won, that we have victory over?
Is it really as simple as a decision? Decision has a lot to do with it, but I think there is the underlying attitude behind the decision. For those who we have heard and seen transform their lives through one decision, there lies hiding in the background, behind the lights, smiles, and excitment the understanding that the decision was not a simple “Today is the day.” In words, it was simple, but in reality, if you were to ask them, “Did this take you only one try?” They would answer no.
The key to making a life-changing decision falls on the shoulders of resolve.
Those that have made the decisions that change lives, only are able to accomplish what they do because of the resolve to achieve it. It is not a one day decision, it is an everyday, every hour, every minute, every second decision to stay the course. Reality has finally set in that the hopeful future and current reality will not intersect. The resolve is to get those roads to come together.
What do you need to resolve today? Is your current reality going to lead you to your preferred future?
If not, its time to decide today, to decide this hour, this minute, this second, to become the person of your future.
