Every Day Presents A Blank Canvass: What Masterpiece Will You Create Today?

Have you ever watched a painter sit in front of a blank canvass and them turn that canvass into a great piece of art? With every stroke of the brush, their mind is placed on display as every ounce of paint harmonizes. Whatever the artist wills as a finished product, it becomes a reality. After they are done, some people may marvel at it and some may even frown at it because they don't understand the message in it. To the artist it always makes complete sense, because it is their work. Even some of the most seemingly simple and so-called "ugly" pieces of artwork become worth thousands and even millions of dollars.

What about you? Every day we're blessed to wake up presents a new 86,400 seconds to do something extraordinary. That day actually presents a blank canvass. We can't change yesterday, but we have an opportunity to create something today that can impact tomorrow.

You don't have to graduate from an art institute to become an artist, because your life IS a canvass. Every day you wake up, you hold a brush. You can either choose to stare in fear at the blank canvass of opportunities or you can create greatness by "throwing paint" from sunrise until sunset. Meaning you can do something!

How many masterpieces have your produced? How many more will you create? How many people have you helped to create their own masterpieces?

Don't be afraid to pull out your "brush" and your "paint"!
