I recently watched a video by motivational speaker Eric Thomas, in which he covered the importance of making TODAY count. We often focus on the materialistic aspects of success rather than perfecting our skill today. Reality is the work we put in today will determine our quality of tomorrow. It took me a while to understand this and how precious life is. At any moment you can lose everything but if you find something you love to do, something that no matter what is falling apart around you this one thing makes you genuinely happy. Once you realize that you begin to look at things differently. The amount of effort you put into your dreams completely changes because it gives you that hunger you need in order to be successful. I try to constantly work on perfecting the small things because I'm aware of the snowball effect that comes with it. I read books, I watch videos, I study successful people, and I apply these things to what I'm doing. One question I ask myself on a daily basis is what can I do today to develop my skill? Make today count and most importantly have fun, It shouldn't feel like a chore.
