What if your “tomorrow” never comes?
Here’s the transcript of the video:
Tomorrow is the most dangerous word in your vocabulary because while it’s a symbol for hope, it can just as easily be the reason that your dreams remain little images in your head.
Tomorrow diminishes the significance of the air that you’re breathing right now.
It tells you that someday you can begin your journey and that you can just wait and make yourself comfortable until then.
Tomorrow masks itself as an escape for those held down by fear, those resistant to change.
It encourages you to be content where you are stating that you got your whole life to get where you want to be.
And for some, tomorrow lasts forever.
It evolves into regret, into immobility, into an excuse to never really do what you were meant to do.
Tomorrow can be worse than failing because often it implies that there was never a beginning there was just a vision.
Just an idea being put off for a better time that never came.
There will never be a moment in your life more precious than the one you’re living in.
Your heart beating in your chest, the air in your lungs, the blood in your veins they’re giving you an opportunity to make a change.
To become who you want to become, to live, to inspire, to achieve.
Because who really knows how many tomorrows you’ll get?
And the last thing you want is to look back in your life thousands of days from now and wish you had the courage to do what you wanted to do.
To wish that you understood how fast tomorrows come and go.
And that all you’ll ever have is the present moment.
Every journey starts with a step.
That courageous act of moving forward not knowing what tomorrow will bring.
Only knowing that you’ll be further along then than you are now.
That you’ll be stronger, wiser, smarter because you didn’t wait for tomorrow, you didn’t wait for anything.
And that is the difference between “I am” and “I wish I was”.
It is the difference between dreaming and truly living.
This truly hit me. As I was transcribing this speech, I had no choice but to recall the times that I hesitated. The times that I procrastinated. The tomorrows that became yesterdays.
How about you? How have you been living your life?
Take action. Now.
To our success in all areas of life,
