Today, Today, Today, NOT Yesterday or Tomorrow, TODAY!

“Today is the only day. Yesterday is gone.”–John Wooden

Learning to live in the moment is a bit easier said than done. However, truth be told we don’t have yesterday and tomorrow is not known. Oh, sure we have to plan ahead of time.

Being present in the moment is in my mind is focused completely on the tasks before me. Not worrying about what happened yesterday but total attention to the task-at-hand. Each day should be lined out with specific tasks that produce a result. Busy work is just that busy work.

prayer, God, Happiness

In order to make a real change in our lives, we must produce a result from our daily routine. If you organize the day so that you have actionable tasks that produce a measurable result. Amazing things will begin to happen. For example, I enjoy writing more in the morning than at any other time. So as a task I set aside specific times of the morning to write. Not stopping until I am finished.

Moving onto the next task only when completing the current. If possible don’t leave off one job before you finish the current. Situations change but stay on task as much as possible. It takes discipline yourself. That change comes with good practice.

What happens to most of us is we get caught up in things that take away from what you can do right now. Worried about what is coming or worried about what has happened. If we’re going to fix anything the work has to come first. Sitting and worrying gets nothing done.

Don’t perpetuate problems solve them. Solving them is being present in the moment focused on what can be done NOT what has been done!

Stop Kicking Your Own Ass

Do you kick your own ass?

You’ve thrown in the towel before the fight even starts because your head says you cannot achieve anything. Friends and family say, no there is no way you can do that. So you just don’t even start.

Why??? Because you kicked your own ass!

You whipped yourself into submission. Don’t kick your own ass. For sure don’t listen to naysayers who say you can’t. THEY CANNOT, BUT YOU CAN! Are you really going to throw in the towel without even taking a step?

You have a chance to climb Mt. Everest all expenses paid, once in a lifetime opportunity. Just because today you’re out of shape you say NO. Without even trying to get into shape to make the climb you merely say I’m 20 lbs. Overweight there is no way in hell I will ever do the hill. Are you kidding me???

Last year when I got kicked in the gut as hard as I have in my lifetime, wanted to know nothing from nothing. I was finally able to say NO MORE. I am not kicking my own ass. This time I survive and win. This time I don’t fall flat on my face, ruin my life over something that is temporary.

Pain is temporary; fear is temporary if you believe that. If you don’t, then you just whipped your own ass. A good country ass whipping! Take a step back and say NO more!

Once you become laser focused that this time is your time to win. You will be amazed at the shift your life will make. When it does not seem that anything is moving your way, this is where you dig in and dig in hard. The enemy will fight with everything in his arsenal to get you to quit. Give up inches from the finish line because the darkness is such that you cannot see you’re mere inches from success. One step away you’re there.

Imagine you’re in a battle alone. About to be overrun by the enemy. Would you not throw everything you had at the enemy to save your life? Same principal. When you feel overwhelmed to the point, you can’t do anymore. Find yourself and throw every damn thing you can pick up and throw. Let the enemy know that God is the reinforcements that are coming over the horizon.

Don’t settle anymore. Have faith in yourself even when those around you don’t. We can love our family and friends, but they’re not you. They’re not the new you. The person that wins this time. Why, because you’re not going to kick your own ass.

Pour your heart and faith into a new life. What the hell do you have to lose? Nothing! Gain, however, a life with meaning, an experience that with Gods help you design. When sitting on your rocking chair looking at the sunset do you want to say “Wow, I did that,” or “Damn I WISH I had done that.”

You decide.

Are you Ready for a Good Life

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”–Buddha  

When you can focus your mind on the positive outcome of life. Then you have mastered the power of change! Don’t worry about the how-to focus that which you desire is already here. Feel it, see it in your mind’s eye and know that feeling. The how will come!
