“Optimism and hard work will tell you that, the future will be bright. But verily, no man knows the end from the beginning. On that note, I implore you to work on today’s challenges with its available opportunities today! Tomorrow has its own challenges and its opportunities that you will need to work on to continue to live. Desist from dragging your feet! A jam-packed life sinks easily. Moreover, it is also true that, ordinariness is cancerous to progress.” – Juliet Rogers
To be a successful person or the person you want to be sooner or later, never use ‘there is another day or there will be another day’ in your present or future tense. Rather, use ‘today’ for both present and future tense. For instance, never say ‘there are days to come when I shall work hard to be the person I want to be in the near tomorrow’; when the right time might be today! Don’t say ‘I will learn hard to pass my exams in the near tomorrow or I will save money to be rich in the future’ when it is conducive to do so today!
Instead, say ‘I will work hard today to be the person I want to be tomorrow; I will learn hard today to pass my exams tomorrow and I will save money today to be rich in the future!’ Anything you want to do or need to do must be done today!!!
In the meantime, reflect on these words:
 Do you see a man diligent and skillful in his business? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men. (Proverbs 22:29)
Admonition: “High achievers are not necessarily those who make the right decisions, but they are those people who make their decisions right; proactive in action, guided by tenacity and armed with purpose.” ( E.K.D Oppong. 19th May, 2017)
