It's Up to You

"A day is more than just a day. A day is opportunity, freedom, a chance to get better, a motivation to live. Yesterday is gone but TODAY is here! And tomorrow is awaiting. The amount of life you put in today will enhance what tomorrow brings. So LIVE TODAY! BE IN TODAY! GO FOR IT TODAY! Make TODAY unbelievable!"

Your thoughts turn into action so if you are continually thinking high level, positive, genuine, inspiring and motivating then your actions will turn into these words. "Get rid of the vampires in your life. These are the people that will suck you dry and not care." says Todd Durkin of Fitness Quest 10. If you are trying to do BIG THINGS and have BIG GOALS then what is the point of having poison in your life. You need to eliminate anything that will stray you away from your goals. It might be hard at first. The peer pressure is tough but you can break through. You can create freedom. You can create legendary ism (yes I made that word up). You can create greatness. You can create the day, the week, the month, the year, THE LIFE that you want. It's up to you though. It's up to you to make that decision to be ELITE, to think a certain way, to act a certain way to BE A CERTAIN WAY. It's up to you! What do you do daily, weekly, monthly and yearly to become a better person. Do you sit around and wait for success and glamour to come to you. Or do you go out and create significance in your life and others. Do you inspire people to do amazing things? Do you get inspired by reading or watching others do amazing things? It's up to you!

Take a deep look at yourself in the mirror. Seriously, try this...try staring at yourself in the mirror for 60 seconds. Look deep into your eyes. What do you see? Do you see strength, confidence, esteem, greatness, belief, a strong you? Can you even stare at yourself, looking deep into your eyes for 60 seconds. It's harder than you think. If you pass this first test the next step is to recite your goals out loud while staring at yourself in the mirror. Let your subconscious mind believe your thoughts. Be genuine and passionate when you recite your goals. Say them in the present tense, like if you had accomplished them already. "I lost 25 pounds", "I earned $10,000", "I finished Ironman Arizona". Your subconscious needs to hear in order for it to actually be real.

Do you really want it? Do you want to improve? Do you want more knowledge? Do you want better relationships? Do you want better communication? Do you want more athleticism? Do you want a healthier life? Do you REALLY WANT IT? Will you condition your mind with personal growth books and CD's? Will you condition your body with exercise, good nutrition and recovery strategies? Will you condition your soul with quiet time, church, praying (whatever works for you)? It is up to you!

Take the time to deeply look into your soul. Where are you? No! Where are YOU? The real you. The YOU that wants freedom in your life. The YOU that wants happiness. The YOU that doesn't need drugs or alcohol or pain medication. The YOU that doesn't need gossip, poisonous words, or negativity. The YOU that needs health, friendships, love and generosity. The YOU that will change people's lives, mentor hallow souls and the YOU that will create significance.

We all have it! But we must use it. It's there. It's right there inside of us. But we must find it. We must search for it. Because "IT" will change us forever. "IT" can be so heavenly. "IT" can fulfill our bodies, our souls and our minds. So remember, TODAY, TODAY is amazing and when we take advantage of TODAY we LIVE tomorrow.

Take a deep breath......

Take another one.....

and keep climbing the stairs. Watch out for the misdirection and stay on that path to doing whatever you want!
