The Last First Day

How many times do we say we're going to make a change starting today.
We then promise to make that same change starting today 3 months later when we realize we made a change for about a week 3 months ago and then resorted back to our old ways.
Making changes are not easy. We think we can do it, we jump into it, and then suddenly, that change is not going the way we want, so we give up completely.
I want to make a change. I've been trying to make a change for years. I start, I stop, I start again, and then 3 days later, its back to my old ways. I made a commitment a few days ago that that day would be the last "first" day of my change. The last time I say, "Starting today, I'm going to make this change." This is going to take a lot of strength and perseverance. I will not give up. I can not give up this time.
If we make this commitment to make today the last first day of our change, imagine where we can be in a month, 5 months, a year, 5 years. Can you even imagine the possibilities? Do this. Make today the last first day. And fight. Fight hard. Do all you can do to make today the last first day. You will go far.
