“Carpe Diem”

In a world that’s ever-changing, there’s really no way to know for certain how any of our futures will go…or is there? This use to be a concern of mine at one point in my life, so much that I would over think often, like many of you that are reading this now.

We’ll over think so much, thinking about our over thinking, that we over think even more, thinking about our over thinking. The over thinking comes from a place of fear but from a more obvious place…being completely oblivious to what’s in front of our face.

“All that can ever be done, can only be done today.”

I’m just going to go on ahead and say it. THE FUTURE DOESN’T EXIST! At least today it doesn’t, and that’s the good news, but do you want to hear some more good news? You can’t do anything about the future tomorrow either because by the time it comes, it will be today.

The reason the future is uncertain is because we’re more focused on tomorrow than we are with what’s right in front of us right now. Today. Today has been the only day out of all the years of our lives that something can be done about tomorrow, but in order to make the most out of today, we must be present in every moment, right now.

“What you do today is, the seed that you plant, and what happens tomorrow is the result”

Every single last one of you reading this has the psychic ability of being able to tell the future, and I’m going to prove it to you. Every morning you wake up, you make the decision to brush your teeth, wash your face and shower…follow me? You even choose if you forego breakfast or not, right. You can tell the future because you have the choice of making a DECISION, at any point in time!

I’m not referring to your romantic interests, how people will respond to you, what the weather forecast will be tomorrow, or if America is going to go to war tomorrow. I’m referring to factors that you do have control over, and making a decision is one of them.

“People miss the train most of the time because they’re focused on what they don’t have control over. You will never have control over tomorrow, but you will always have control over today.”

Throughout each and everyday, many of us neglect to make some of the smallest decisions (or at least we consider them small) and then get upset when things don’t work out the way we “planned”. The indecision can be linked with our obsession with the next moment and/or tomorrow, over the most precious thing in front of us now. This moment. Today.

One thing that all successful people have in common is that they know how to turn off all the unnecessary noise (worries about the future) to get in “the zone”. The magic behind being in “the zone” is that in order to get there, you have to be present in that very moment, and that moment exists today. Not tomorrow or a year from now, but today.

“The moment you let go of the obsession that the next moment is better than now, you’ll begin to watch the future unfold exactly as you planned, with every thought, and every action. But the key, is “now”.
