Enjoying The Present (Leading In Life #18)

presentOften we worry about the future or we are sad about the past. Today let’s talk about enjoying the journey.

Check out this quote, the author is unknown:

“Worry is a total waste of time. It doesn’t change anything. All it does is steal your joy and keep you very busy doing nothing…”

Awareness is key. Worry is Level 1 energy. It is a place of inaction, self-doubt and fear. We have to become aware of when we are in the spin cycle of worry. That place where we are worrying about the outcome, what others may think, etc. and not taking action.

Tamara found this awesome quote from Zig Ziglar…

“F-E-A-R has two meanings:

‘Forget Everything And Run’ or

‘Face Everything And Rise.’

The choice is yours.”

If we think about that quote in the terms of the Seven Levels of Energy, those responses are two very different energy levels and outcomes.

Forget Everything And Run is a Level 1 reaction

Face Everything And Rise is a Level 5 response.

So how do we “Enjoy the Present”…

1. Release catabolic energy – enjoy the moment. Look at things as “It is what it is.” Be non-judgmental.

2. Ask myself, “Is my response to this situation holding me back or moving me forward?”

3. Stop analyzing the past and stop predicting the future.
