What you are today is nothing compared to what you will be tomorrow.
And what you are today is massively more compared to what you were yesterday.
Life is continuous progress. Many look for success in what lies ahead – I will have more – while at the same time regretting the lack of what once was – I was better off. The point is to completely revert the perspective, and start measuring success looking at the path so far while aspiring to what comes next.
It’s always the journey, not the destination.
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
Every person is a possibility. Every person is many possibilities.
There are different paths you can take, different journeys you can loose yourself into, different decisions to make. The person you are today is probably not the person you will be tomorrow and certainly only one of the many different persons you could have become.
In this wealth of options, you can end up moving from one to the next. Or you can make an intentional choice, stick with it, and always keep in mind a couple of principles: this is what’s better for me and this is what’s better for the people I care about.
