… brings you to the next.

Projecting into a future moment — leaves you stranded.

Being in the present moment is the roadmap to our lives. Living in a future moment sends us careening off-course.

Life isn’t about the future destination of where you’re headed, it’s about the present moment journey into yourself. And every great journey is born out of one step, because one step brings you to the next one, which brings you to the next one, and so on.

Being in the moment secures you on your path. When you are open to the wisdom of the moment, you are infinitely guided to the next step along your journey because you are moving along a path you are standing on. But when you’re living ahead of the moment and projecting yourself into a future moment (which doesn’t yet exist), you are throwing yourself off your path into the bushes and blind guessing where it might lead.

The future doesn’t have your answers. The moment has every answer you will ever need.

Don’t ask your future where you’re headed. The roadmap to your life is secured in this moment. The future moment may never come. If you base your destination on a future moment, you will have missed the richness of all the moments along the way.

Being in this moment brings you to the next. Never make a decision in the future based on a probable outcome which may never come. The only moment you have is in the NOW. When you make your decisions based on this moment, you’re on your path. When you make decisions based on a future moment, you are off in the bushes. Where do you want to be?

historyrepeatsitself… until you CHANGE it.

How else would it stop?

History happens over and over again until you LEARN THE LESSON FROM THE PAST and use it to REDEFINE A BETTER FUTURE.

But how many of us know that?

How many of us realize that history ONLY repeats to give you ANOTHER CHANCE to make a DIFFERENT DECISION.

Instead of lamenting history repeating, wouldn’t it be better to learn the lesson from it’s past and move forward in a new way?

If you want a different result, you have to do something differently. Until then, history will continue to repeat itself in hopes to give you all the new chances you need to make any/all different decisions. Create a new future for yourself, show up differently when history repeats, and you’ll find that your life changes in the most amazing ways. What are you waiting for? Ready to change your history? Whenever you are, a new story is ready to begin.

if something is happening to you over and over again, it’s a pattern that’s meant to be worked through differently NOT repeated.

2884846… takes away your freedom in the moment.

And that is everything.

The best laid plan has to be able to change. Because YOU are always changing.

Don’t hold so tightly to your goals and plans, be flexible with them because things change, people change and new opportunities present themselves every day.

You never want to lock yourself into a future plan because your growth is continual. Make a plan and allow it to be flexible. Choose your highway and select an exit, but then keep your eyes open and take in all the scenery around you. You may decide you want to take a different exit and explore a new town. You may surprise yourself. Life is full of exits and the best of us explore as many as we can before we declare a final destination.

Trying to control your future takes away your freedom in the moment – the freedom to decide to change your mind and take a new exit. Learn to let go and listen to the wisdom of the moment. Plans are meant to be changed. New exits are always meant to be taken. Don’t try and control your future. Pay attention to the moment, it will tell you everything you need to know about your future.

difference-between-depression-and-sadness… it’s about your state of mind.

So change it.

Reducing your stress level (about your schedule) is about controlling your mind, NOT your schedule.

Understandably so, most of us become stressed due to the schedules we work under. We’re time-impoverished and that creates a source of stress in our lives.

But believe it or not, stress is a choice. It’s a choice in perception.

You can either allow your schedule to “stress you out” or you can change your perception of your schedule. In other words, your schedule doesn’t have to be a source of stress, but the way you mentally label it will be.

You may not always be able to control your schedule, but you can always control HOW YOU REACT TO IT. So, know that you can change the way you are viewing your schedule. For instance, you can either see your schedule as “full and fulfilling” or it can be seen as “busy and overwhelming.”

A schedule is just that, a schedule; the mental perception we attach to it is the way we will experience it. The same holds for anything in life – an event/situation/person is just that, but the perception we attach to it, is how we will experience it.

Do you want to feel more in control of your life? Do you want to have less stress? Learn to redefine what you’re looking at. When you redefine your situation, you will experience it very differently. You are always in control of how you see things. Just know that stress is never about your schedule, it’s about your state of mind as you make your way through it.

How people treat you… is about THEM and where they are in their life.

It’s NOT about you.

How you REACT is about YOU.

The way people treat you is more a reflection of who they are and where they are in their life at that moment, then it’s ever about you. But we tend to make it about us. 

You can never control how someone treats you, but you can always control how you react to them and that’s your only job.

As long as you are accepting responsibility for your life and your actions and you are consciously showing up as the best version of yourself everyday, then you’re being YOUR BEST YOU and no one can ask more of you.

How people treat you says more about where they are in their own level of consciousness and that is a playing field that you do not have to play in. Stay in your own field. Own your own behaviors, strive to be the best YOU everyday and if it isn’t good enough for someone else, realize that it’s most likely because they aren’t feeling good enough about themselves.

Stay in your own playing field. How people treat you is NEVER about you, it’s always about them. Let them learn to manage their own playing field and more importantly, keep them out of yours.

th… brings it RIGHT TO YOU.

Detaching from it, dissolves it for you.

Which sounds like the path of least resistance?

We have it wrong in our society, we continually FIGHT AGAINST what we DON’T WANT in our lives. But in doing so, we actually feed energy to the very thing we don’t want.

So, if there is something in your life that you do NOT want, do NOT give it any attention at all. Detach from it. Take back your energy and don’t feed energy into your thoughts of resistance, anger, worries or fears of it happening. Just re-focus your thoughts on something else. When you re-focus your thoughts, you put the energy into a different arena and what you are resisting slowly dissipates from your reality.

Thoughts need energy to become real. And you are always in control of whether or not you make any thought real. Take back your power and put your energy ONLY into the thoughts you want to experience in your life. Fighting against something makes sure you get it, detaching from the mere thought of it assures that it will NEVER make its way into your existence. Which way would you prefer to live?

The road of life… is contingent on the quality of your driving.

How good a driver are you?

Are you in the driver’s seat of your life or is your life driving you?

You are always in control of your life although so many of us tend to fall asleep at the wheel. We go on auto-pilot and miss the key exits that we should have taken along the way – the exits that would have broadened our horizons and took us on amazing journeys into ourselves.

Sometimes we shut down to living our life and we adopt coping mechanisms that numb our performance. We just set the cruise control, sit back and passively let life pass us by. We hide behind “too busy at work to deal,” “too busy with family,” “too busy trying to make money to survive,” etc… These tactics coupled with drug use, alcohol, binge tv watching, over-eating, etc… are convenient distraction strategies which prohibit you from taking control over your life.

It’s your life. You are behind the wheel. How are you driving it? Are you living up to your potential or are you letting life pass you by? Are you missing the exits of your life that could enrich you? Or are you driving in the fast lane and in complete control of your destiny? The road of life is contingent on the quality of your driving. The more conscious, aware and mindful you are of the road, the less likely you are to lose control over your life. Wake up and get into the drivers seat of your life. Take control and steer your life in the direction you want it to go. For if you don’t, you will never be driving your life, you will forever be at the mercy of the road.
