Good Morning, I Believe by: Eldon Taylor.

What is too late? Great thinkers I admire have expressed their thoughts on this question. Elbert Hubbard, whose scrapbook I’ve enjoyed for some 30 years, said, “Everything comes too late for those who only wait.” And Og Mandino, one of my favorite writers, said, “There is an immeasurable distance between late and too late.” What is this “immeasurable distance” and how does it relate to the idea of waiting until it’s too late? Distance is actually a mis- nomer, for the idea is more one of time or action than of physical.

Think of it this way: If, on your deathbed, you truly forgive someone for something that you’ve held against him or her for a long time, that person is just as forgiven as he or she would have been many years earlier. As for the relationship that might have been shared with the individual who was forgiven—that’s lost, at least in this lifetime, because you waited. How would you measure the distance between this deathbed scenario with dying bitter and unforgiving? Obviously, in a metaphor, there’s a big difference between late and too late.

Positive thinking and learning how to implement it in your life daily is the magic to changing your life.

Your Affirmation: "Today I will make the changes in my life, so my future is all that it should be."
