Here are five great ideas to make today a better day for you.

Don't say "I'll do it tomorrow" or "I don't have time." Tomorrow tends to be the imaginary land that never arrives, and 95 to 99 percent of the time when people say "I'll do it tomorrow" or "I don't have time," it really means "I'd rather just be lazy."

Don't make excuses.  Just do it. If there is something that you want to do, whether it is just something that you think would be fun, a new experience, or something to better yourself, then do it. This sort of goes with point  number two. If you're making excuses, then all that means is you really don't want it that badly.

Read books. Get off the internet. Stop reading pointless three paragraph articles and read something substantial. It will help expand your vocabulary, open your mind, inspire real thinking and creativity, and more.

Save money. Be aggressive about it. In the next 5 to 10 years, you'll probably be extremely happy that you did so. Save as much as you can and save as often as you can. This is a must.

Question and evaluate yourself. What could I have done better today or this month or year? What are my strengths? What are my weaknesses and how can I improve on them?  Where can I take personal initiative and become a stronger employee who contributes more next year? Take responsibility. Don't blame the economy or the government or how much something cost or how unfair something is. And certainly do not blame someone who makes more money then you do . Stand up and take responsibility and move your life forward.

Have a good day and go for it!
