Yes, I will
Today I will make a difference. I will begin by controlling my thoughts. A person is the product of his thoughts. I want to be happy and hopeful. Therefore, I will have thoughts that are happy and hopeful. I refuse to be victimised by my circumstances. I will not let petty inconveniences such as PHCN inefficiency and traffic jams or other challenges whatsoever be my masters. I will avoid negativism and gossip. Optimism will be my companion, and victory will be my hallmark. Today I will make a difference.
I will forgive those that I thought have offended me because forgiveness brings progress, happiness, mercy, prosperity and good health. Unforgiveness hinders blessings from God therefore, I will forgive. I will make a difference.I will be grateful for the twenty-four hours that are before me. Time is a precious commodity. I refuse to allow what little time I have to be contaminated by self-pity, anxiety, or boredom. I will face this day with the joy of a child and the courage of a giant. I will drink each minute as though it is my last. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever. While it is here, I will use it for loving and giving. Today I will make a difference. I will remember to ‘sow a good seed’ today.
I will not let past failures haunt me. Even though my life is scarred with mistakes, I refuse to rummage through my trash heap of failures. I will admit them. I will correct them. I will press on. Victoriously. No failure is fatal. It is OK to stumble… . I will get up. It is OK to fail… . I will rise again. Today I will make a difference.
I will spend time with those I love, my spouse, my children, my family, my friends and my loved ones. A man can own the world but be poor for the lack of love. A man can own nothing and yet be wealthy in relationships. Today I will spend at least five minutes with the significant people in my world. Either physically where possible or through the phone where applicable. Five quality minutes of talking or hugging or thanking or listening. Five undiluted minutes with my colleagues, children, and friends.
Today I will make a difference. What about you?
