Win The Day

Based on the popularity of the Eric Thomas (ET) video that I posted last week, I would like to share another. In the clip below, ET delivers yet another highly energetic and passionate speech. If you are a competitive athlete with aspirations of success, prepare to find yourself raring to go as you listen to his words.

Throughout the speech, ET touches upon several concepts related to success. Perhaps most importantly though, he discusses the significance of winning the day (at the 5:30 mark). Far too many people focus on long term goals without enough attention directed towards the present day. Future goals will never become a reality unless you constantly dominate the present.

I don’t know what will happen tomorrow. I don’t know what will happen next week. All that I can control today is the present. I can’t be concerned about tomorrow until I have taken care of today. I do not finish the day’s work when I am tired. I finish the day’s work when I am done. How can I think about long term goals if I cannot conquer the goals I set out for today? Until you are constantly winning the day, you cannot expect to win in the future.

If you want to get something done, start working on it now. Do not let tomorrow become the mystical land that is pictured below.

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today. – Abraham Lincoln

    Whenever I feel a little down, I come to your site and turn into a frothing lunatic after watching one of the videos you post. Sometimes I also want to cry because of how emotionally uplifting some of these video are. Anyway, keep up the great work brother!

    Jim Rohn use to say that you first have to discipline your day then you had to learn to plan and discipline the week then the month, months year. It is a process that starts everything. hell when making a change you got to hold yourself accountable moment by moment. self discipline is the master key and most of our’s weakest link.
