What decisions did you make yesterday?

What decisions did you make yesterday?

Did you give someone your word and then break that promise?

Did you exercise?

Did you eat healthy?

Did you study to get better at whatever it is you choose do with your life?

Did you take a play off?

Did you cheat on your exam?

Did you tell the truth?

We’re you late?

Did you hit the snooze button?

Did you use profanity?

Did you encourage someone?

Did you do your household chores?

Did you spend too much time on your phone?

Did you get proper sleep?

Did you make The Lord your #1 priority?

Did you even spend anytime with the Lord?

Did you donate your time to help someone in need?

Did you respond positive to a negative situation or did you let your circumstances define you?


This list could go on forever! The point is that the choices you made yesterday determine the person you are today. Good or Bad. Making good decisions doesn’t necessarily guarantee success however making bad decisions guarantees you won’t achieve your goals. Give yourself every opportunity to succeed!

Regardless of wherever you find yourself today understand that we can’t do anything about the choices we made yesterday. I often have athletes who miss a practice say, “Coach I’m going to work extra hard today.” That just means you are working how you should today and has no bearing on what you missed yesterday. Your legacy or reputation is ultimately shaped by every single decision you make. Remember that as you go about today and Win the day!
