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?

How To Use Fear To Your Advantage

In the words of Marie Curie, “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.” It is okay to fear something, but don’t let it stop your movement. Your opportunities are waiting for you. Your dreams are waiting for you. If you want them to happen, you must walk past your fears. Only fear can stop you from doing what you love. Only fear can stop you from achieving your dreams. Do not let that happen. If you want your dreams badly, you must do everything within your power to live your life. Use fear to your advantage. Use it to get to the next level. Use fear to change your life. Let fear spring you forward in your life, in your career. Do not let fear cripple you. Don’t worry about your past failures. Just worry about where you are going. Because where you are going is more important than where you have been. Do not look back. Always look forward. But do not ignore the present. Because life happens in the present, not in the past.
