The Lifebuilder's Creed

Today is the most important day of my life.
Yesterday with its successes and victories, struggles and failures
is gone forever.
The past is past. Done. Finished.
I cannot relive it.  I cannot go back and change it.

But I will learn from it and improve my Today.

Today.  This moment.  NOW.
It is God's gift to me and it is all that I have.

Tomorrow with all its joys and sorrows, triumphs and troubles
isn't here yet.
Indeed tomorrow may never come.
Therefore, I will not worry about tomorrow.

Today is what God has entrusted to me.
It is all that I have.  I will do my best in it.
I will demonstrate the best of me in it -
my character, giftedness, and abilities -
to my family and friends, clients and associates,
I will identify those things that are most important
to do Today,
and those things I will do until they are done.

And when this day is done
I will look back with satisfaction at that
which I have accomplished.

Then and only then, will I plan my tomorrow,
Looking to improve upon Today, with God's help.

Then I shall go to sleep in peace . . . content.
