The late Dean Blocker was one of my professors at Morehouse–he used to say, “What you are to be, you are now becoming.”
At the end of a day, take a good look at your reality. If you had to live the rest of your life the way you lived today, would you be happy? Same wakeup time, same activities, same routine, same foods, same interactions with loved ones and co-workers.
We can’t necessarily make all the changes we want in life over night, but we can start moving in that direction immediately.
Start being the person you want to be right now.
You want to live in a mansion? You wish you didn’t have to argue with certain people? Not happy about your food choices or other habits? What have you done in the past 10 days to push you toward becoming who you want to be? Do you see how your behavior the last 10 days has led you to where you are right now?
The good news is, you can turn the corner at any point. Start becoming the person you really want to be on the deepest imaginable levels. You deserve this type of contentment.
