Inspiration Quotes

Either you run the day, or the day runs you!

We wake up every day, thinking today is the day I will make a difference in my life. Every day, we wake up thinking we should improve my lives. We make plans for the day believing we would accomplish all the tasks on our To-Do list. But at the end, we eventually get caught up in the web of the Matrix of illusion around us.

Here is what a typical perfect day might contain for an average person: -

1. Wake up early
2. Go to the gym
3. Meditate
4. Eat healthy
5. Learn Piano/Singing/whatever you love
6. Hang out with friends and party
7. Spend time with family and loved ones

If you think of doing any of these daily and still are unable to do them, then you are letting the day run you instead of the other way around. By the time an average person reaches their office, their enthusiasm is reduced and till the lunch time, they are completely exhausted. An average person lets what happens around them influence their day/thoughts. By reminding yourself constantly of what is more important to you will you be able to actually do the things that you truly care about.

The best way to control your day is by making a To-Do list early in the day after you have taken a shower and are ready for the day. Spend 5 minutes each day writing on a piece of paper what you would want to do today. Along with the activity, write the time at which you would like to do that task. Writing down with your own hands enforces the concept in your mind rather than just thinking. You might not be able to do EVERYTHING that you want to achieve in a day, but you will be able to do at least some of them. And being able to do something that you truly want to do no matter what is around you is the biggest accomplishment that you will have in life.

Start taking control of your day because it is YOUR day and YOU run the day, not the other way around. Keep a reminder or post a sticky note on your computer/workspace and you will see wonders happen in your life. After all, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
