Time is a precious commodity.
Life doesn’t have a rewind button, but we still find ourselves from time to time living life with our brakes on.
Dangers of Tomorrow
We can start tomorrow, right?
The problem with walking around thinking we’ve got all the time in the world is that thanks to tomorrow, our stuff isn’t going to get done today.
It’s sad when we invest time in things that don’t really matter to us in the long run.
We can easily get sucked into media and get so concerned with the lives of other people that we forget to understand ourselves and focus in on our own lives.
Mastering the Present Moment
Living life to the fullest has a lot to do with valuing our time.
Here are some suggestions in how we can be a master of the present moment.
We spend so much time worrying about other people, what they’re doing, what they think of us, that we are not giving ourselves the liberty of finding out who we are.
We’ve got to understand ourselves to the core so we can direct ourselves in areas where we’ll have the most fulfillment.
2.) The Now
When we’re not in the present, it means that we’re detached from the now.
Countering this has everything to do with our focus.
As we direct our focus to the present moment, it’ll be empowering. From moment to moment, it’s now just ourselves and our choices .. choices of thought, action, and attitudes.
3.) Short-term Goals are Fuel
When thinking about what we want to achieve, we can be overwhelmed as we come to the awareness of how much work is going to be required to accomplish what we want.
When we focus on achieving the small goals though, they will fuel us and increase our ability to keep pushing forward in the direction to achieve what we want for ourselves in the long run.
4.) Be Forgiving
We’ve got to be forgiving of other people and ourselves.
We can also be forgiving of the circumstances out of our control, and outcomes in which we hoped for something different.
It would be in our best interest to forgive fast and then move on .. Why? Because we’ve got goals to accomplish.
We don’t want that unnecessary weight of brewing resentment dragging us down.
In a sense, being forgiving means standing up to negative vibes and not letting them distract us from what is most important.
5.) Be Grateful
Gratitude and forgiveness are two sides of the same coin. Each will generate positive vibes and each require mental effort to reap the benefits.
Being grateful is all about being aware.
As we are aware and recognize the goodness in our lives, we’ll attract more of that goodness.
This gratitude can cause an upward spiral of good vibes.
When we’re stressed but we still have that good attitude and tell ourselves it’s ok.
If we’ve got negativity going on, it will be relentless in telling us that we’re not going to make it, that we’re not good enough, that it’s too difficult.
We can learn to release the negativity, fully be present in the moment, and acknowledge the potential for positivity as we put in the effort to adjust our attitudes when necessary.
There is no rewind or replay button in life.
This means that now is the time for our improvement, our taking action towards our goals, and our coming to awareness of our potential.
That being said, we shouldn’t let the gap between our current situation and our big goals get us down, even if it’s a big gap.
Putting in work for goals is a constant process, and that process is a reward in itself.
