Tomorrow doesn’t exist. Yesterday doesn’t exist. There is only the now. The right here and right now.
When we wake up ‘tomorrow’ it becomes the now. Because there is only the now we have to make the most of it. We cannot rely on ‘doing it later’. It must be done and it must be done right now.
The past is the past. We cannot live in the past, it’s over. Let go of it. We have to look back on our successes and mistakes and we have to learn from them, so that we can do the right thing right now.
The future doesn’t exist. We can’t rely on the future. No one is guaranteed a tomorrow. If you say “I’ll do it tomorrow” you might as well say “I’ll do it in 7 years”.
Learn this phrase:
“I’ll do it now!”
The most successful, happiest people in the world get that way because they don’t put anything off until later. They take care of business right here and then.
You won’t hear a top CEO say “oh, I’ll take care of it next week. I want to watch this TV show now”. You won’t hear a top bodybuilder say “Oh, I’ll work out in a few days”.
Are you living in the now? Are you TRULY living in the now or are you just going through the motions? Do you love your work? Or are you filled with dread every day?
We only get one shot at this life, just one chance. We have to make it count.
Is there a girl you like but you’re too scared to call, or you think you’ll call later? Drop everything and call her this very moment! Maybe this very moment she is waiting for you to call.
Is there a business you have been dying to start but “it’s just not the right time”? There is only ever one right time and it’s right now!
Are you sick of your flabby gut but you’re waiting to go to the gym? Get up off your ass and go to the gym right now!
Quit your soul-stealing job now!
Paint a picture!
Make a movie!
Write a book!
Do it right now!
Go out for a jog!
Go talk to the pretty girl that works at the coffee shop!
Change the world!
Change your world!
Sell all your worthless electronics, sell your house, buy an RV and drive across the country!
Go to the airport right now and book a flight!
Take your dog for a long walk, get your thoughts clear and figure out what you really want!
Figure out who you really are and what your life’s purpose is! It certainly isn’t to work for someone else, come home to watch the idiot box, eating chips and soda pop.
Your life has a purpose, a meaning. You have goals and dreams.
Quit whining and complaining, quit procrastinating, don’t give in to apathy – go do something this very instant!
You are ALIVE!
Get out there right now and live your fucking life!
