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?

Chance Is Always Powerful

“Chance is always powerful. Let your hook always be cast; in the pod where you least expect it, there will be fish.”- Publius Ovidius

What are you looking for? Are you crying for a new relationship? Are you searching for a new job? Are you planning to move to another city? Are you tired of where you are working?

No matter what you are looking for, you can achieve it. It is within your reach. And to reach it, you must look within yourself. Start with yourself. Look within for what you are looking for. Everything is within you. God has given you everything. All you need to do is to look within yourself.

“You can change yourself, but do not forget your values.”

If you don’t like where you are right now, change it. If you cannot change it, make it better. And if you cannot make it better, leave. But before you do that, you must know why you are living where you are. And when you leave to a new place, do not forget your values. Let your values guide your decisions. And to catch your fish, you must stay away from people who don’t want you to leave where you are. Because you won’t grow if you stay with them. They are okay with what they are doing, but you are not.

You can change yourself, but do not forget your values.
