Seriously – when you woke this morning, wherever you were when you woke this morning, how you felt when you woke this morning – can it get any better?
If it can’t, enjoy your day – you must be in paradise!
However, if you woke feeling anything less, woke feeling things can be better, that you want them to be better or that they MUST get better – get up and do something about it. Start now.
Don’t just sit there awaiting a lightning bolt, a lottery win or some incredible fortuitous phone call that sets you off on a journey of untold riches, hedonistic pleasures, fame, fortune and joy – get off your tuchus and make it happen.
We need only one things – and this can be self administered, it’s KITA.
Has it ever been better?
If you can’t remember – then it’s time to makes some new memories, fresher ones, happier ones, more productive ones. Maybe it is just the right time to give yourself a good swift KITA. Or to find someone else to administer it. Don’t seek out a foe or competitor or critic to do – because they’ll just do it for the joy of kicking you.
No, you need to get someone on your team to do the kicking.
Get your best friend to give it to you (and, just when they least expect, give them one too).
The best gift we can give ourselves, or give our best friends, is a generous supportive reminder that we care about them and won’t let them rest on their laurels. They can do better. So can we all.
