Try to realize the importance of the moment you wake up in the morning, because the rest of your day depends on it and the rest of your life depends on this day. If you do not live today correctly, you will spend each tomorrow repairing the consequences of the mistakes you made the previous day.

All those who concern themselves with the future while neglecting the present twenty-four hours have left gaps everywhere in their lives, and they come back on earth in order to correct, make amends and suffer.

By simply living twenty-four hours well, you will prepare the twenty-four hours to come, and the programme that lies ahead will be easier to carry out: the ground has been cleared, nothing lies in the way, so life becomes easy.

So begin by living well the first moments of each day, in order to prepare the hours that follow. Tell yourself, ‘The past is the past, and the future is “yet to come”…

but I have today. So, set to work!’
