Create Your Best Life, Right Now.
Tomorrow is a yesterday, just as yesterday was a tomorrow. The important thing is, what are you doing now?
It can be as simple as a thought, as all dreams began as a thought.
"The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird waits in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities." —James Allen
It can be a small action, as you don’t need to wait until tomorrow to begin.
"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." — Anne Frank
How will you create your best life? The how is a great tool. Forget the why, ask yourself how you are going to create the life you want. Right here, right now.
What could you do to live the life you want? The could is a great tool. Forget the should, ask yourself what could you be doing. Right here, right now.
I feel questions like “how…” and “could…”, are cultivators of creativity versus “why…” and “should…” — which often stifle our potential.
I recently had one of those I’m-not-going-to-be-the-same-after-this conversational encounters with a special stranger during a layover in Singapore. Besides the fact that he was 65 yet looked 48 and blamed it on meditation (epic), he shared a story with me and the take away was this — when you ask someone how they are feeling, and they begin to tell you about how they had a crappy morning, or are so anxious about this presentation they have to give tomorrow, ask again, “How are you feeling?”, but do it with a finger snap. The point is, the snap is to bring them to the moment. I want to apply this to our “how” and “should”…
