Are You Fully Present In The Here And Now

Today matters. Before you start your day, before you leave your house, before you even make your morning coffee, make sure you have one positive thing that you want to get done. You can choose anything. It doesn’t really matter. You know what is important to you. But choose something based on your values, your goals, your dreams, your purpose in life.

You can focus on completing your unfinished project. You can focus on giving people love. You can focus on doing one thing at a time. You can focus on being fully present when you are with someone. The choice is yours.

One positive thing is better than twenty negative things. Doing one thing really well is better than doing so many things poorly. When it comes to task, when it comes to getting your task done, focus on one thing. It is better for you. It is better for your mind. It is better for your growth and development. It is better for your productivity.

When you focus on doing more than one thing at a time, you won’t get what you want. You will not do very well. You will do poorly. Why is that? Because you have divided your attention into so many places. You know that when attention is divided, when you don’t focus your attention on one thing, you will do really poorly.

But you can train yourself to be wherever you are. I think that is the best way to focus on one thing at a time. Just be there. Don’t fly. Do not think about anything. Do not get distracted by what you didn’t do well yesterday. Remember, what you are trying to learn now is what you didn’t do well yersterday. To stop yesterday from happening again, you must experience everything you are doing right now. Be there. Be yourself. Have purpose. Know what you want. Know how to get it.

Whatever you do, wherever you are, be fully present. Be there. Because success happens when we are present. Transformation happens when we are present in the here. Life changes when we are present. The question is, Are you present in the here and now?

When They Are Done, They Are Done

Free yourself from what you have. Relax yourself. You deserve to rest yourself. You are responsible for resting yourself. If you don’t need it, but your body needs it. If you don’t want to rest yourself, your soul will rest you. Why? Because you are active when your soul is in good shape. And to put your soul in good shape, you must learn to take a break. You must learn to detach yourself from negative thoughts.

Take care of yourself. You need it. Your body needs it. Your soul needs it. Some people will criticize you for taking care of yourself. Other people will support you for doing it. No matter what they say, they are not in charge of your life. You are your own boss. So use your power to take charge of your life. Stop attaching yourself to what you have. Stop protecting your material things. When they are done, they are done. When they are old, they are old. When it is time to let them go, let them go. It is their time to go. Do not fight to keep what you don’t need. Instead, fight yourself to detach yourself from your old negative thoughts. Life is not about attachment, but about detachment.

Detachment is life. Attachment is death. Detachment is healthy, is success, is freedom. Attachment is stress, is fear, is failure to let go. Detachment brings peace. Attachment brings panic, anxiety. That is why we suffer.

We suffer because we don’t know how to let go. Remember, you can buy anything you want, but you can’t keep everything you have. From now on, give away what you do not need. Detach yourself from old things. Detach yourself from old bad habits. Detach yourself from toxic friends. Detach yourself from your old negative thoughts. Detach yourself from fear, from hate. When you detach yourself from old things, new things will come to you. They will come to you. But to receive them, you must detach yourself from the old things.
