How to live each day better than the last

28 October 2015, 12:36 Anne Muigai

Are you still trying to figure out how to live life to the fullest? If so, you are not alone. Many people seem to be struggling with their shortcomings and failures which bar them from reaching their full potential. The sad thing is that most people go through life having never really experienced the beauty of life. Mostly, we create prisons in our minds that limit us to conformity. That doesn’t mean you can just wish yourself into a new life, but you can actively work towards living life to the fullest, by breaking free of the cage you have built around yourself.

Over the years, and just like many people, school and work have kept me running through the day reacting to all what life throws my way. Many times, I have felt like I work too hard yet accomplish so little or nothing at all. Often, we waste too much time complaining and looking at what we don’t or ought to have.

When my old buddy shared this simple trick on how to live fully, I thought it would not work as I had tried everything I knew. After a day passed by without complaining about my past mistakes and missing shots, I thought I could give it a try. A week, a month and now a year on, I still use this trick and my personal and social growth has been tremendous.

It’s simple. To live each day better than the last, we have to take control of today, and every today that follows. We can do this simply by living intentionally and not just letting the day happen to us. Taking control of your life means you make decisions that will bring the outcomes you want.

Each day we are given a new set of 24 hours and a new set of possibilities. We get to decide how to use those 24 hours; what we do, what we feel, the chances we take, what we think, or how we behave is entirely upon us. If you choose to complain for most of your day, then you will reap nothing but bitterness and resentment. On the contrary, if you choose to work and do better than yesterday, then you will have better results than the last.

As someone put it, “By taking advantage of all the possibilities of today, we open up a new world and a different way of living. We find all the success we have been looking for and live up to our absolute potential all while slowing down enough to enjoy the journey and have a great peace of mind.”

The concept here is pretty easy to integrate in our day to day lives. It’s all about choosing to create the life you really want and committing to live today better than yesterday. Learn to enjoy the small things in life for they make life full and add up to make the big things that you wish for.
