“Either run the day or the day runs you.”

Jim Rohn

Consider the day like an untamed horse. Let it run wild and it’ll gallop all over, taking you on a wild, unpredictable ride that leaves you exhausted and far from your destination. You’ll end up tossed and turned, pulled in all directions, with nothing substantial to show for the day.

Now, consider the alternate scenario. You grab the reins, guide the horse, decide the path and the pace. The control is with you. You’re not merely enduring the day; you’re driving it. You navigate towards your goals, overcoming obstacles, reaching milestones. The day doesn’t run you, you run the day. And when you’re in the driver’s seat, each day becomes a step towards achieving your dreams.

Choose to run the day.
