Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

Sean Patrick Flanery

October 28th - creating our own destiny

The future depends on what you do today.

Mahatma Gandhi

Who you are in the future depends on what you to today  For me it means being the best person I can be. A person who has a strong set of beliefs and values is usually a happy and strong person.  A person who does not have these will be assured that he will be at the mercy of others. 

We need to decide what we want to be and get started. Success is defined by yuur own ideas so we need to figure them out then get on the road that will lead us there.

The one thing we have in life is choice.  We can choose how things will affect us.  We can choose to be angry and bitter when things go wrong, or choose to let them go and move on. We all have that choice.

The more time and energy we invest in the future, the more our future will be what we make it.  One must learn how to learn. To take information and understand how to apply it in our lives.

People will pressure us to do what they think is best, but if it’s something you don’t agree with, don’t do it.  You will regret it and pay for it in lost time an energy. We need to learn o grant people the right to be themselves. Ourselves included.

To make good decisions , we have to get good information. The willingingness to learn will take you far, and we are never too old to learn new things. 

All we have to do is plan our course and go.

I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today.  I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day.

James Joyce

Yes, everything we do has a bearing on our future, good or bad.
My take-away for today is your phrase, "We must learn how to learn." Interesting!

I like we need to plan our course and then go. And if we take a wrong step it is easy to put ourselves back on course if we just continue along one step at a time.
