I’ve had a card with the quote “Essence of A New Day” hanging on my office walls for over 13 years. I don’t remember who gave is to me. It has traveled with me from Canada to Australia and back.
It was an anchor for me during difficult times when I was faced with downsizing my team. I couldn’t change the fact that I had to let people go but I could do it in the best way possible. As difficult as those times were I have great memories of the appreciation my team had for the way I handled it.
It was and still is an anchor for me as I navigate the journey of being an entrepreneur. I try to think about how I apply myself each day, the quality I bring to my work, the way I approach each conversations and value I put on each relationships. I try not to focus on the pass as I can’t change it. I can appreciate it and learn from it but I can’t change it.
“This is a beginning of a new day.
You have been given this day to use as you will.
You can waste it or use it for good.
What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever;
in its place is something that you have left behind…let it be something good.”
I love the last line “When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever. In its place is something that you have left behind…let it be something good.”! It is a great reminder to make the most of each day, even the difficult ones.
“You have been given this day to use as you will.” What will you do today to make sure that what is left behind is “something good”? How can this motivate you? Please share below.
