It has been said that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago and the next best time is now. Today. This very moment.
It is very tempting to wish you had done things differently, yesterday and had taken a different path, 10 years ago, but the reality is that this is where you are and reality is different from a wish. Reality is what it is…reality; the one in your face right now.
But in all of these, (whatever it is to you), you will always have a choice. A choice to act or to hide. A choice to be a player in your own destiny or to condescend to a victim.
The thing is, not everybody gets the chance to be an early starter and our contemporary history is replete with success stories of some late bloomers that we can all learn from and each of us will always have a place on either side only if we choose to see it.
Nothing better sums my point than the African proverb, which says, whenever a man wakes up, is his own morning and that’s so true.
Start today! Start now! Now is on-time!
