One day at a time, you can achieve incredible results. What’s your goal? Your bigger picture? What steps would it take you there? Then focus on the tasks. A six month project might look scary or unachievable if you are focusing on just how scary it is. Keep your mind in check and do the work. You will soon see that your efforts are paying off.
Have you ever planned for something and you stubbornly wanted that to be it? Plans are a starting point, just as a degree is only the beginning of life-long learning. Plans often lead to stronger ideas and more elaborated processes. It often is that a plan that we hatch and we think of as a masterpiece unleashes our potential. Our potential is unlimited and change is intrinsic to life. So plan today, review tomorrow and then implement it.
It may seem like a challenging ask wanting to give the best out you every single moment of every single day. But it’s not as supernatural as it may seem. Building the habit of doing what’s right can be achieved through daily practices and commitment to stick to the plan regardless of slight derails that might come your way. After a few days you’ll surprise yourself realizing that what seemed impossible is the new normal and you’ll have the freedom of wondering: what’s next?
We are often denying that our life is worth it as it is. That our awakening into wanting more from the future needs to come from the present moment, in the present. It is our thoughts that give us everything we have. Ownership of our own life can only happen now.
One morning you will wake up knowing that someday is here. How likely is for this to happen, knowing that it takes a new way of thinking to realize that tomorrow is today and that our projections over the future are just the present moment placed on pause? Look around and desperately seek for people who are happy in the now. Chances are you will find them, but they won’t be where you expect them to be because being happy is a choice we can make at any stage of our lives.
Taking responsibility takes courage and a strong sense of self. It is a trait of an honorable person. But what if you’ve learnt early on that by taking responsibility you expose yourself to the vulnerability of being blamed? Blame is a negative emotion and it sits at the opposite side of the spectrum from taking responsibility. If it’s being projected on us, it reveals feeling that the other person has difficulty dealing with. By taking responsibility you can set a barrier between what matters and the void of being trapped in the past. Blame doesn’t exist in the present moment.
