Wherever you are, I hope that you make an awesome day because no matter the obstacles in front of you, every day is an opportunity for you to win the day. Today, I want to start with my favorite quote that says, “You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.” That expecting part is a big aspect of it. Most of us don’t wake up in the morning and are expecting to have an awesome day. Most of us start reading the news or reading about how all the bad things going on in the world, and we just prepare for things to go wrong. And you’re setting yourself up for failure on any given day.

Life is not fair for anybody, which makes it fair for everybody. I mean, let me say that again It’s not fair for anybody, which makes it fair for everybody. We all have equal challenges. We all have equal opportunities on any given day. A great lesson is to use what you have, not wish you had what others have. We all don’t possess the same skills or talents, but use what you have and grow those skills or talent And that takes action. Because the truth is, it all comes down to our perspective. 10% of life is what happens to you, 90% is how you react to it. What you do on any given day What do you do with your reaction, or your talents, or your skills? How are you honing them? No one’s born an exceptional athlete, or an exceptional pianist, or anything to that effect, or exceptional artist. Everyone works at those things. It takes time and effort.

You may not think you can learn a new skill or something now. I mean, just think about this If you’re driving down the road, people from a third world country who have maybe never even driven a car would think you’re the most talented driver in the world because you can drive with one hand on the steering wheel, going 90 down the freeway, scrolling your phone, maybe checking the radio station. You shouldn’t be doing any of those things, but we all have the ability to do it. And it’s something like a new skill that you may have learned. We all can learn new skills, no matter the age that we are. But it takes action, doing things.

So remember that, that life is all about our perspective, because 10% of life is what happens to you, 90% is how you react to it. And life is not fair for anybody, which makes it fair for everybody. So have the right perspective and the right mindset, and you’ll have an advantage over everybody else today. And it gives you the best opportunity to Win your day. #Wintheday
