This Day

Today can be about the same as yesterday and the day before. Or it can be a new, invigorating, exciting adventure.

You can try to drain as much value as you can from this day. Or you can resolve to fill it with new value through your thoughts and your efforts.

You can complain that this day is just like all the rest, and struggle to get through it. Or you can greet this day with enthusiasm and find positive, enriching possibilities that you've never seen before.

You can, on this day, be filled with resentment over the difficulties with which you're burdened. Or you can choose to fill your heart with gratitude for the opportunity to move positively forward, no matter what may stand in your way.

This day can serve as an excuse to be miserable. Or it can serve as an opportunity to fulfil the very best of your possibilities.

This day is yours right now. Choose to fill it with all the richness that life has to offer.

The Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn't fail.
The same four walls and busy work were really more like a jail.
I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before.
But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.

I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much.
I said I didn't care for things like commission cheques and such.
I claimed to be so busy with things inside my zone.
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.

I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before.
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.

If you're in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out.
Remember that all winners were at one time with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Reach for your future with a smile - Success is there for you.
