Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow!
Think back about where you were exactly one year ago today on today’s date? What were you doing? Where were you?
Now think ahead … where will you be exactly one year from now on this same day? What will you be doing? Where will you be?
Okay now think back about where you were exactly one week ago today? And where will you be exactly one week from today?
Let’s bring it in a little bit closer, where were you one hour ago? Where will you be one hour from now?
And finally … where were you one second ago? And where will you be one second from now?
Interesting exercise considering that as you sat contemplating between the past and the future the present moment was passing you by!
In fact as you read these exact words the future is passing thru the present and is now a part of your past.
Many of us spend our time living in the past or trying to control the future …
And while it’s important to have goals to shoot for … it’s equally important to make sure that you don’t miss out on the present moment. After all it is the only moment that you really have.
3 Thoughts on THIS Moment:
- In THIS moment … you can apply what you’ve learned from the past to make better choices for the NOW.
- In THIS moment … you are taking actions that will bring you closer to the future that you desire.
- In THIS moment … you are forming the foundation of your future with every passing second, of every hour, of every day, that you are here on this earth … right NOW you are sculpting your future … don’t waste any clay!
As Morgan Freeman said in the movie, The Shawshank Redemption … “Either get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’!”
So what are you waiting for?
