It is easier to be someone you are not than to be your real self. You can’t be your real self if you are not true to yourself. You can’t connect with your real self if you don’t know yourself. Don’t hide who you are. Be proud of who you really are. Don’t waste your time trying to be something different. The more you do that, the more you are moving away from your real self. To connect with your inner self, you must be yourself.
It is easier to get what you want if you know yourself. If you don’t know yourself, if you are not true to yourself, if you are not your real self, you can’t pursue your dreams. Even if you pretend to do something to better your life, you will end doing the wrong thing. According to Margaret Young, “… you must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.” In order to get what you have been fighting for, you must first be who you really are. If not, you are in for a long walk.
“Turning your now into total fulfillment is the touchstone of effective living, and virtually all self-defeating behaviors are efforts at living in a moment other than the current one.”-Wayne W. Dyer
Are you enjoying your life? If yes, continue. But if no, why not?
Enjoying life is not about money. It is not about material possessions. Enjoying life means living in the moment. It means you are present. You are living in the present. It means you are enjoying the moment. It means your mind is with you, not somewhere else.
Many people are not enjoying their lives because they are still waiting for the perfect time. They are still living in the past. They are still thinking about the mistakes they made yesterday. If you want to enjoy your life, you must learn how to live in the moment.
When you live in the moment, it will allow you to know yourself better. It will allow you to know your environment better. It will allow you to connect with the people around you. For example, when you are having a conversation with someone, living in the moment will allow you to REALLY listen to what she or he is saying. But if you are spiritually absent, you will miss everything.
Living in the moment allows us to connect with our inmost self.
Wayne W. Dyer said, “Present-moment living, getting in touch with your ‘now,’ is at the heart of effective living.” If you are not living in the now, you are not connecting with yourself. In order to enjoy our lives, we must connect with ourselves.
The BEST time of your life is NOW! So live it.
When you are in the moment, you are with yourself. It means you are experiencing your best life. It means you are dissolved in what you are doing, in where you are. But when you are not in the moment, it means you are physically present, but spiritually absent. To get the best out of your work, your life, you must be physically and spiritually present.
If you really want to enjoy your life, learn to be in the moment, focus on what you have, focus your thoughts, manage your time, manage your stress, and manage your expectations.
