This week’s Monday Morning Message from Wm. H. Danforth, founder of Ralston Purina:
What is the Monday Morning Message?
“You wake up in the morning, and lo! your purse magically filled with twenty-four hours of the manufactured tissue of the universe of your life. No one can take it from you. It is unstealable. No one receives either more or less than you receive.”
In the lives of the great and strong, these Miracles happen every day. The weak and the unambitious just go along so, so—nothing disturbs their serenity. If only a Miracle could happen to them!
Wake up every morning this next week. Put life in your exercises. Look in the glass— shake your fist at yourself and say, “I’m going to do something big today.”
We all get the same 24 hours in each day, but some of us do much more with those hours than others.
The first step to getting more Miracles out of each day is having an awareness of time. When you pay attention to how you spend your time you are less likely to let the days slip past without accomplishing anything.
Start each day with the intention of finishing at least three tasks, and a plan to do so. Then do it.
Make miracles happen for you!
