Better Today, Than Yesterday !

Smile today, and let the world know it! This is the assignment today. Simple, easy, and everyone can go out today and accomplish this task.

We all want to be more positive in our lives; we all want to see movement towards change. If this is true then we must take action on a daily basis, or nothing will happen in your life.

This simple exercise will not only brighten your day, it will change your perspective, and outlook on what is happening around you.

Go out there and proclaim to anyone one within arm’s reach that you are stronger today than you were yesterday, last week, or even last month! You are getting better and better in every way, each and every day!

I can already hear the naysayers in the group. You think I have lost my mind. You are thinking he wants me to go out and find people and go up and smile and tell them I am getting better and better each day. I couldn’t possibly do this. This is strange. This is weird. Well I am here to tell you that strange and even weird people sometimes accomplish the most in their lives. Why? Because they are willing to get out of their comfort zone and try something new.

I sincerely challenge you today if what you are doing is not working. If you feel like you are not seeing any progress than maybe you need to get out there and pay it some lip service. Begin to smile and speak it out loud, keep speaking it until you start to believe it. You must begin to believe it down in your core, way down in your gut where it counts.

Okay, I want you to go to the bathroom mirror, look yourself in the eye. Smile, go on, and smile! Okay, now speak these words “I am a lot stronger today than I was yesterday.” Say it again, “I am a lot stronger today than I was yesterday. Try this one “I am getting better and better in every way.” Again: “I am getting better and better in every way.” Good, now keep it up, say it when you’re showering, keep it up to your kids and your spouse, say it as you’re going to work in the car. You are ready! Go out there and get ‘em.

The important key is to keep this exercise at the forefront of your mind all day today. Be conscious of the fact that you must be out there speaking it for it to have the desired impact on you. It needs to penetrate your heart and soul.

It is also fine if you tell people you are conducting an experiment or you are performing a self-improvement task if they ask what you are doing. See if you can get them to commit to doing the exercise with you throughout the day. Who knows, you might rub off on them and get a positive trend going in your immediate vicinity.

Finally, at the end of the day take a few moments to get quiet and reflect on your day. Question yourself. Did the exercise help you to have more joy today? Did it cause an improvement in your overall day? How did it affect the people around you? Was it an empowering exercise? Are you glad you got out of your comfort zone and performed the exercise?

Anytime we perform a test or self-improvement exercise in our lives, it is very important to do a self-evaluation at the end of the day to see if there was any progress made in your life and what the progress was that was made. I sincerely hope you won’t slough this off and say it is a bunch of nonsense. If you don’t try it today, do it tomorrow. It can truly revolutionize your outlook on life if you will but let it. Now you know the drill, get out there, smile, and have an awesome day. See you tomorrow!
