The Benefits of Living in the Moment

If you don’t stop to take in the beauty of life or how many wonderful things we get to experience each day, your entire life might just pass you by. You can’t afford to start living at the end of your life, so do it now—live in the moment.

I know we all have goals we’re working toward, and striving for anything can get busy and consuming. But slowing down to appreciate how far you’ve come is just as important as seeing the destination.

So what will you do to start living for today? Here’s my personal approach to living in the moment.

Why What You Think About Matters

Sometimes we feel like our identity is a rigid thing, and that we simply have to make the best of the traits that could use some work. But the truth is that you decide who you want to be. Confidence, self-belief and mental strength are things that can be molded over time.

Your life and your personal story can always be rewritten. Ask yourself these five questions to see if any self-limiting beliefs are holding you back.

To Be a Real Dream Chaser, Fight Your Fears

It’s natural to have fear and uncertainty about the future. We’re only human after all, and no one can completely get rid of their fear. But if you ever want to do something great, you’ll need some courage to overcome your feelings and take that leap of faith.

If you let the FUDs (fear, uncertainty and doubt) hold you back, you’ll never know what’s possible. Use this quick motivational boost to start feeding your dreams and starving your nightmares.

Why I Don’t Have a Bucket List

If you’re waiting for the right time to start doing all the crazy, adventurous things you want to do in life, you just might run out of time. Truth is, a bucket list that only gets checked off at the end of your life won’t do you any good.

Instead of focusing on what you can do before you die, focus on what you can do right now. Make a life list that you can use every day to get you closer to where you want to be.

My personal life list focuses on appreciating every moment, no matter the circumstances. Here’s what it looks like.

Envision Your Best Future

If you’re not satisfied with the life you’re living, it’s time to start thinking about what you really want. A good place to start is within, by discovering your passions and what’s most important to you. And once you’ve decided, you’ve got to do the real work—you’ve got to make the changes that will take you where you need to go.

But you can’t start changing until you’ve envisioned the result. Until you have a clear view of where you’re going, the road map won’t make sense.

Here’s some motivation to bring you closer to your destination.

A 4-Step Guide to Finding Your Allies

There’s no getting around it: We’re highly social creatures. It’s been that way since the Stone Ages, and it has always played a huge role in our survival.

The same way we interacted back then is just as important today. At the core of it, successful people are those who find their tribe. They’re the people who support each other in a way that allows them to become allies.

Over the years, I’ve found that there are four good ways to build your inner circle. If you want to make meaningful, productive connections, use these tips to do it right.
