Live for Today, Not for Yesterday

“The past has no power over the present moment.”

~ Eckhart Tolle ~

 

People have baggage. There isn’t a single human being who hasn’t experienced hurt in their past. Bottom line, we all have experiences… positive, negative, and neutral.

Moment by moment, you have the choice of whether to allow your experiences to dictate your present, or to be active in creating the life you want to live.

While it can be beneficial to acknowledge your history, let it not loom over you any longer than you decide for it to.

And while we’re on the subject… your past isn’t all bad is it? So why is the pain from the past so much more present in our minds moving forward?

It’s equally important to acknowledge life’s wins and all of those feel-good moments you cherish in your memory.

So how can you prevent your yesterdays from determining your today, and then ultimately shaping your future?

One way you can take control back is to have active self-talk or a mantra you can say to yourself when you begin to recognize your baggage making a comeback…

  • Eckhart Tolle said “The past has no power over the present moment.”
  • Mother Teresa said “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
  • Tom Willhite said “To live life to the fullest, live each day in total harmony and integrity.”

Living in the present moment does not diminish your past, it allows you to maintain power in your own life… after all, it belongs to you and no one and nothing else.

Create a mantra for yourself. Make today the best day possible, so tomorrow can be too.

The Growth Potential Within

poison

“Against all odds, a seed rises from darkness and beautifies the universe.”

~ Matshona Dhilwayo

 

Do you ever feel like you’re fighting through life alone?

Like even the tiniest seed, you were born with the potential to achieve greatness. Don’t forget that even the tallest tree began as a small seed.

The seed doesn’t simply sprout once it makes contact with the earth; it must first bury into the darkness beneath the soil before it can fight it’s way through to the surface and meet the life giving light of the sun.

Just like the seed, every person on earth faces challenges… loneliness, darkness, loss, despair, heartbreak, and so much more. Pain is real and valid and equally as important is what you choose to do, and rise from the setbacks.

There’s no doubt about it – life is hard and success takes work. That being said, you’re a successful person, bound for bigger and greater successes in the future!

By the mere fact you’re reading this post, you’re displaying a desire to better yourself. You have within you the power to achieve any goal you can imagine.

It’s time to move forward once again. What would happen if you stopped and evaluated your life based on results? No judgement, just facts. You are doing the best you can right now. This is true, because your results are what they are.

What do you want to do next?

It’s time to take the guilt and shame out of your thought process. You are not alone in this world and you have everything within you right now to achieve greatness.

Whether you’re a successful CEO of a Fortune 500 company, or if you’re still figuring out what you want to do… know you can – you are powerful beyond measure.

Now’s your time to use the innate gifts within you, combined with your lifetime of knowledge, and make your next dream come true!

The Three R’s

poison

“Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.”

~ Jack Canfield ~

 

There’s a negative process of thinking and acting that can be the downfall of even the best relationships.

The process we’re talking about occurs in 3 stages, and we call it The Three R’s.

First stage: RESENTMENT.

Resentment can occur so fast you may not even realize it… Someone breaks their word to you, another driver cuts you off on the freeway, or anytime a situation isn’t the way you think it should be.

Second stage: RESISTANCE.

Resistance is happening when you begin cutting off communication… or to put it another way, it’s when you start to put up your walls.

Resistance can be even more subtle too. It may be when you hold back, or when you don’t give your all to a situation.

Have you ever heard the phrase “what you resist persists”? Think about it. When has digging your heels in gotten you the results you were after?

Third stage: REVENGE.

Take a moment and bring to mind a time in your life where you took revenge. What happened to bring you to this stage of the process? Did taking revenge on someone else bring you peace? Afterwards, did you feel better or did you end up causing harm?

When you take revenge on someone else, The Three R’s will usually then begin in the other person! It’s a cycle with no end… until YOU CHOOSE to end it.

Consider yourself challenged.

The next time you find yourself feeling resentment, take a moment… Do something to interrupt the process. Take a breath. Understanding the Three R’s, you now have an opportunity to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

Put this into practice starting now and you could start to see positive results in your life.

Perhaps you’ve heard a saying like:What you put out, you get back” or “what goes around comes around”… what these don’t say is that it doesn’t necessarily come back from the same source…

Sometimes we hold the most resentment against ourselves… so what’s the solution?

The process of The Three R’s often hurts you more than the person you’re feeling resentment towards… the answer is forgiveness. Forgiveness for them, AND for you.
