Why You Need To Live In The Present Moment(1)


You ever catch yourself daydreaming or thinking about something that happened some time ago - or even something that may or may not happen in the future?

Like most people everyday you probably think about something that appened in the past or you're focused on something that could happen in the future.

When you you're thinking about the past or the future - you're not here - you're not living in the now. You're not living in the present moment.

When you're not living in the now you fail to utilize what I call the power of now - something that can dramatically improve your life in ways you never thought possible.

If you want to achieve success, happiness and live the life you want - start living in the now; be here now by experiencing the present moment for the gift that it is.

Be Here Now

We all live in the present moment but very few of us utilize the power of this current moment.

Let's face it the only thing that exists is what is happening right now.

The past does not exist; it's over with and should be nothing but a fading memory.

The future does not exist; it simply hasn't happened yet.

Both the past and the future are only a part of your thoughts and memories; they only exist in your mind and not in reality.

The only thing that really exists right now is the very present moment that you live in and from this present moment you can draw tremendous power; the kind of power that can change your life and allow you to achieve your goals.

Now you may not like the present moment but that's only because you're thinking about what you feel the present should be. You're comparing the present moment to something else and not appreciating what is happening right now.

You're either allowing your ego to dominate your present moment, or you're focusing on mistakes of the past, or you're consumed with the future that you're forgetting to live in the present moment.

I know some of you may say:

"Right now I don't have a job and the bank is about to foreclose. Plus my wife/husband just left me and I'm stuck with 3 kids. My present is not exactly pleasant."

If you're present or current situation is not pleasant then you are comparing it to something else you're probably thinking about what the now should be instead of dealing with what is going on.

If you don't have a job then it's time to look for one.   I know you're probably looking for work but don't focus on the fact that you don't have a job, and don't focus on how difficult it may seem to get a job. Instead, simply concentrate on going out and getting a job. This is the process of doing what has to be done now and not worrying about the way things should be.



At the end of the day see where you are and focus on what needs to be done next.

If your children need attention right now then give them attention. If you need to go out and look for work right now then do it.   Don't compare your present situation to anything accept what it is and make the most of it with the intention of making the present better with each step that you take.

Don't get me wrong I'm not saying accept your present situation and don't do anything to improve it.

I'm saying deal with your present situation and do everything you can to improve your life.

When you begin working on the present moment with the intent of improving your life you begin to utilize the power of now you leave the past in the past, you don't concentrate on the future and instead you start living in the present moment doing everything that you can to improve your life now.

When you do this you send a powerful message to your subconscious mind.   You tell your subconscious that you are here now and ready to get to work to improve your life.

Your Subconscious mind then begins working for you because your subconscious only understands the present moment your subconscious does not understand the future or the past your subconscious only lives in the now; it only exists in the present moment.

While many of you will be able to grasp and understand the concept of living in the now and working with the power of the present moment practicing it is quite another thing.

To start working with the power of now you have to get your mind to work differently you have to get your mind to simply focus on what is happening and what needs to be done right now. No more comparing or hoping for things to get better.   Just deal with what is and what has to be done.

When you do this you start moving forward and you allow your subconscious mind to help you achieve your goal because you are here now - working with your subconscious to create the situations that you want. Start living in the present moment and get your subconscious mind working for you today.

to be continue....
