EACH DAY IS A NEW DAY - THE GATEWAY FOR YOUR TOMORROW

















 Pic.: Anand Ashokan



“Each day is a new day – the gateway for your tomorrow.


Wake up each morning with a resolution


to make the day the most wonderful one.


Your tomorrow should be founded on such a wonderful Today,


Not on an unpleasant Yesterday.”




Today is the day… and, it is sensible to make the most of it… So, ‘Carpe Diem’… Seize the day!



Today is the day to dream, decide, plan and work… Today is the day to trust, hope and soar… Today is the day to amend - let go, forgive and be healed… Today is the day to thank, share and celebrate… Yes, today is the reality - God has blessed you with it, already…

‘The Present’ as they call it… a priceless gift!

Today is a new day – the gateway for your tomorrow. If you want to see an amazing tomorrow, make this day – today – an amazing one, first… Wake up each morning with a resolution to make it a wonderful day, an amazing day… Yes, you can not hope to walk into your tomorrow with out passing through this gateway… 




That’s why it is said, 

‘Wherever you go, you carry yourself!”… 



If you are happy today, you will be happy tomorrow… If you know how to rejoice today, you will know how to rejoice tomorrow…

Remember, your Past is over… Put it behind. It might be unpleasant… But, holding on to it only means holding on to your prison cell. All that your Past should serve you is - to be a good-hard lesson to learn from. Once that’s done, close the book, and move on…

Your tomorrow is yet to come… Let it be founded on the solid foundation of a wonderful today – a day filled with gratitude and rejoicing… Let it lead you to another new day… another amazing day…

Dear, trust: everything happens now – today. So, don’t fail to seize this day… Don’t fail to say – ‘Carpe Diem’!

P.S.:

In the early 80’s, as a stranger and a struggling young-man in this big city of Mumbai (then Bombay), I was filled with self-doubts and fears. My self-confidence level was at its lowest pit, and I was gripped with anxiety about my future. It was during these harrowing times, I had found on the roadside an old copy of Dr. Napoleon Hill’s inspirational classic – ‘Think & Grow Rich’… 

My life was destined to change, immediately!

I have been so influenced by Dr. Napoleon Hill’s ‘Success philosophy’ - particularly his famous line: “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” - that it would be impossible for me to shed off this influence all my life.

So, as a young-teacher in his twenties, when I had scribbled those passages in the little booklet ‘THE DAWN’, they loudly – and proudly - echoed the core tenets of Dr. Hill’s life-lessons. What he had assimilated from the lives of scores of successful people and passed on to us, I was now trying to do, in my own way, to my students…

With my deepest humility and reverence, I dedicate this book ‘THE ECHOES OF THE DAWN’ - to the one who made me ‘Stand up’ in life…Dr. Napoleon Hill.
