But when I heard her say, “today is the first day of the rest of your life,” it made me pause. How cliche for someone who’s considered a pioneer in the personal growth field. When’s someone going to pay me seven figures for coming up with such profound advice?! But as I thought about it, I realized that sometimes the simplest advice is the best.  There’s a reason you’ve heard it over and over again. It’s true. The problem is that we hear things — and say things — like “today is the first day of the rest of your life,” without really thinking about it. “Yeah, yeah, I know that.  Whatever,” is what we think when we hear popular pieces of advice like this.
