“Why do some people, perhaps you, seem to never get ahead? What is one of the biggest difficulties people face that prevents them from getting what they want? Where is it that most people put their attention? How come it doesn’t work the way you hope it will?
“Never let yesterday use up too much of today.” Will Rogers said that and it is great advice. You cannot move forward looking back. You can’t drive your car forward looking only in the rearview mirror. Yet, that is what many people do. They try to get ahead looking back.
Be here now. Come to this moment. Live in the present, the here and now. Let go of what was. Honor it. Respect it. Learn from it. Forgive it. Make reparations if necessary and you are able to. Accept it and then let it go. Drop it. Don’t let the past define you. Stop judging.
The More Grateful You Are The More Present You Become
You are more than your past conditioning and experiences. Whatever your past was it is gone. Unless you continue to keep it alive. Some of it was good. Maybe, some of it not so good. That is okay. Bring your attention to now. Let go of any, ‘if I had only…’
Stop living with regret. Stop living with shame. Stop being a survivor and start living fully. Cut the ties that bind and put your attention on this day. This moment, Right here. Right now. When you free yourself of looking back your energy is available to transform now.
Your now energy is available to look forward and create what you want from this moment on. Look at what you can be grateful for right now. Celebrate your past as prior learning and lessons. Begin to celebrate now for all that is available to you. Be here and now.
Be Present In All Things Be Thankful For All Things – Live Now
Count your blessings. Be thankful. List your wins. List everything you appreciate. It can be small or large. It can be specific or vague. Just begin taking inventory of what you can be grateful for right this instant. Focus on these and notice how good it feels. Start living. Live fully. Find all the good Find the new. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
Make this moment magnificent and magical!
