Carpe Diem – Seize the Day!

Posted by admin - Under: Carpe Diem, Edward Marks, gratitude, Inspiration

Every day is a blessing. You are fortunate to have each one. We get a fresh start with the morning sun rise.

How do you start your morning – with excitement and expectancy or with drudgery? Choose to rejoice and be grateful for all you’ve been given – even the challenges! Ask yourself what God is teaching you in the difficult times.

Our troubles are opportunities to persevere and grow in character. These life obstacles serve to make you stronger. So don’t complain about them, relish them! Approach them with zeal and excitement. Once you have overcome them, you will look back upon them with laughter, wiser from what you learned through the experience. Seize the day!

Change Your World

We have opportunities each day to make a difference in the world around us. Choose to be the change you want to see in the world.

Your world is the hemisphere you work, act and play in each day. This is your sphere of influence and life operating circle.

How do you interact with the people you come in contact with in your world? Are you joyful?… pleasant?… or are you self-absorbed? Do you improve the environment around you?… or make people wish they’d never see you again?

Ask yourself, “Do I measure up to the standard I expect in others?” If not, decide to change today! Stop acting in ways you wouldn’t tolerate in others.

Be the difference you want to see in the world. Seize the day!

Seize Opportunities

Look for opportunities around you. It may be an idea for a great business opportunity, or a random act of kindness you can do for a stranger. You may be able to help someone in need or give someone needed words of comfort or encouragement.

Look for opportunities and when they come – seize the day! Once you’re on the lookout for them, you’ll see them all around you.

Who knows, you may get a breakthrough business idea that could change your life. (Ideas are part of the Goldmine within you.) You may meet the man or woman of your dreams. A door may open for a great new career opportunity.

Keep your eyes open and seize the day! Be grateful and choose to have a joyful, pleasant demeanor and personality. Choose to be kind to others, even when you have nothing to gain from it.

Show compassion. Help someone out. Show kindness. Look for opportunites. Seize the day and change the world! Choose to be your best you and be a part of the solution rather than part of the problem. One person can make a big difference.
