This Is The Youngest Day You Have Left

Eleanor Roosevelt once said,

“Today is the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be again.”

This is one of my favorite sayings because it shows a lot about perspective.

Age can be subjective and most adults 30 and above feel younger than they are. The gap grows over time.

you’re only as old as you feel“. There seems to be a connection between longevity and feeling young – which makes sense.

Studies have shown that adults who feel younger than they are, not only live longer but have a lower risk of dementia and depression.

People experience success at different ages.

I’ve mentioned people such as Julia Child, Henry Ford, and others who didn’t succeed and there are also others on the spectrum.

Alexander The Great, Bill Gates, and Mozart are a few of those who had ample success at an early age.

I don’t say this to compare, but show that people are capable at any age, and to live with zero regret.

One of the easiest and best ways to ensure you’re living with no regret is to let your priorities guide you.

You will feel a better sense of well-being if you are able to live a life with purpose and passion. This pursuit is critical to a happy life.

This can be a daunting task so here are 5 ways to help:

  • Set your values
  • What do you stand for?
  • Where can you compromise?
  • Learn the power of “no”
  • Not every opportunity keeps you on your path.
  • You don’t have to give time to everyone.
  • Deploy the Eisenhower Matrix method
  • Prioritizing your to-do list.
  • I discussed this method in last week’s newsletter
  • Organize your day-to-day life
  • Write a to-do list the night before.
  • Prioritize Sleep, nutrition, hydration, and exercise.
  • Practice Gratitude (no toxic positivity)
  • Pick 5 unique things that made the day special. You can write it down.
  • Do this every day and you’ll notice a change in a month.

Time doesn’t go backward, this is the youngest one you have left and is the best time to take action.
