“You make me want to be a better man.” –Melvin Udall, Jack Nicholson’s character in the 1997 movie “As Good as It Gets”

That line was included in the American Film Institute’s “100 Years…100 Movie Quotes” centennial celebration, and gives a good clue as to what can make every day occur like your best day.

What makes you want to be a better person? What’s the project that really pulls at your heart strings? What’s the cause that calls you? What’s the personal expansion in your skills, talents, career or life that you’ve dreamed of?

When your dream or passion is at the forefront of your mind, day-in day-out, all days are equal–whether it’s Wednesday, Friday or Saturday–because you have meaning behind your doing.

Take a small action today and every Wednesday to nurture that which makes you want to be a better person.

Got motivation?

“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” –Dr. Wayne Dyer
