Some people would not waste one moment of the day if they knew there were difficulties in the days ahead. None of us can predict what is in store for us tomorrow. All that we have in front of us is this moment. So, let’s not waste one moment to make a difference in our lives. Let’s stay positive and fight the good fight of the day. Wishing that we should have or could have done things differently is generally to late.

Panic and anxiety are often our first reactions to conflict and problems. In those initial moments, choosing peace seems impossible. Your subconscious whispers, “If you really care, you will worry.” But a seasoned individual will not panic. No matter what the situation or circumstance, we usually have a moment to breathe deeply and let peace flow through our body and mind.

Panic, not the task at hand, is the enemy. Anxiety just implodes and enlarges the problem. Your best problem-solving resource is always peace. Fear and anxiety block solutions. Answers flow more easily and naturally from a peaceful state of mind. In other words, for the best outcome, keep a positive frame of mind.

The late Winston Churchill was a man of wisdom. His wisdom shines bright through his many quotes. The one that is most insightful to leaders in any culture is “to build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.”

As we contemplate the tasks of today, let’s not waste any moment to make a positive difference. As Winston Churchill so aptly stated, “Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.” So, as we plan our day’s activity, remember to make every moment count so that you can be productive and Never Give Up! Never Give Up! Never Give Up!
