This post isn’t going to be a long one, but I’m hoping it moves you enough to start taking action this week. I see so many people “limping” through life, rather than bursting into every day full of life and passion. So here we go…
I want you to get out of your head and stop thinking about the future all the time. Instead, I want you to concentrate on the moment you’re in, and start taking chances right now. The present is all we have. That’s right. None of us are promised a tomorrow. How many times do you hear of someone who went to the Doctors because they weren’t feeling great, and a couple of weeks later they’re dead because they had something terminal they didn’t know about?
How many times have you heard of people who popped out to the shops to grab a few groceries and never made it home again?
So many of us spend all our time focused on planning for tomorrow, but too many people find out too late that tomorrow doesn’t always come. It’s time to spend more time in the present and less time in the future. All we have is today, and to live an amazing future you have to live an amazing today. Sure, maybe you are scared of men hurting you, but if you spend your whole life looking for perfection, you’re missing all those amazing lessons all the “imperfect guys” could be teaching you. It’s the same with anything we do in life. So here’s my challenge for you today…
It’s time to spend more time in the present and less time in the future. All we have is today, and to live an amazing future you have to live an amazing today.
I want you to make a list of 10 things you’ve been meaning to do, or want to do, but have been putting off. Then I want you to put them in order from the most important to the least important. Then every single day I want you to do at least something to move you closer toward one of your goals. It doesn’t have to be a huge action, but it needs to be some form of action. Keep it nice and simple.
It could be asking for a pay rise at work, it could be going over and talking to a guy you find really attractive, it could be asking someone out for a date. It doesn’t matter what you do, but the momentum you gather from taking small simple actions every day, add up quickly. You’ll be amazed how good it feels when you start to feel yourself moving forward. I want you to start living your life today, because today is all we have.
Every morning when we wake up, there’s no guarantee we’ll make it back into bed at the end of the day. It sounds horrible but it’s a fact of life. It’s time for you to take a more active role in your life. It’s time to get out of your head, and it’s time to start living in the present. Stop focusing on tomorrow, and stop paying more attention to today. You’ll be amazed how many of your goals you can achieve when you make this simple switch in your mindset.
