  • 1. BY MARC CHERNOFF
  • 2. We never know when everything will change. When great opportunities will pass. When everything we take for granted will be taken away. We don’t know when later will be too late. Don’t let this reality depress you; let it motivate you. Let it push you to say what you’ve been meaning to say all along, to others and to yourself…
  • 3. 1. “I love you.” If you appreciate someone today, tell them. If you love someone today, show them. Hearts are often confused and broken by thoughtful words left unspoken, and loving deeds left undone. There might not be a tomorrow. Today is the day to express your love and admiration.
  • 4. 2. “Thank you.” For my 17th birthday, my grandfather gave me four used flannel shirts he no longer needed. Sadly, I thought they were an odd gift and I wasn’t thankful. He died two days later from a sudden heart attack. The shirts were the last gifts he ever gave me. I regret the small thing I didn’t say when I had the chance: “Thank you Grandpa. That’s so thoughtful of you.”
  • 5. 3. “I am a good person who is worthy of my own love and respect.” The truth is, a partner, or even just a friend, can add lots of beauty to your life, but they can’t fill a void that exists within you. You alone are responsible for you own fulfillment. If you feel hopelessly lonely whenever you’re alone, it means you’re in bad company. It means you need to work on your relationship with yourself first.
  • 6. 4. “I can’t always win, but I can always learn and grow.” Don’t confuse poor decision-making with your destiny. Own your mistakes. It’s OK; we all make them. Learn from life experiences so they can empower you! The knowledge that you are responsible for your actions and attitudes does not need to be discouraging either, because it means you are free to change your destiny.
  • 7. 5. “It’s time to do something positive.” Somewhere within each complaint is a genuine desire to improve things, but the complaint by itself is never enough to make it happen. So make the choice not to aggravate a bad situation with your complaints. Choose instead to improve it with your positive thoughts, ideas and actions.
  • 8. 6. “I CAN do this!” What stops you is your belief that you can’t get past the obstacle. The problem is, you’re waiting for perfect conditions that don’t exist. Don’t make excuses for why you can’t get it done. Focus on all the reasons why you must make it happen. There will always be challenges. And there will always be things you can do to grow beyond them.
  • 9. 7. “Their drama is NOT mine to deal with.” Honestly, you can’t save most people from themselves, so don’t get sucked too deep into their drama. They don’t want their lives fixed by YOU. They don’t want their problems solved, or their messes cleaned up. Because what would they have left? They don’t know and they aren’t ready to know yet. And it’s not your job to tell them.
  • 10. 8. “I’m sorry.” The first to apologize is the strongest, and the first to move forward is the happiest. Always. And of course, don’t bother apologizing if you’re just going to continue doing the things you said sorry for. Say it and mean it. Look the person in the eyes when you say it, and feel it in your bones.
  • 11. 9. “I forgive you.” Forgive anyway, for your own sake, and then let what’s meant to be, BE. Forgiveness allows you to focus on the future without combating the past. Without forgiveness, wounds can never be healed, and progress can never be made. What happened in the past is just one chapter. Don’t close the book; just turn the page.
  • 12. 10. “Life right now is pretty darn good.” Some people wait all day for 5pm, all week for Friday, all year for the holidays, all their lives for happiness. Don’t be one of them. Don’t wait until your life is almost over to realize how good it has been. The good life begins right now, when you stop waiting for a better one.
