Let me begin with a great quote:
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. ”
Indeed a fascinating quote!
We often read and hear “Stay in Present”. Have you ever wondered how energized one can feel if one follows this simple statement? Ironically, it is sometimes not simple to follow the simplicity. According to me, the statement “Stay in Present” can really be a broad term. We all know that it is neither possible to go into the past nor into the future which is the law of nature. That means actually we are always living in the present. Yet, we get the best pieces of advice from the best mentors in the world that one should learn to live in the “Present”. Why exactly?
What exactly is living in the “Present”?
To be precise, one should be able to understand and differentiate between the two concepts: “Staying in Present Physically” and “Staying in Present Mentally”.
We all follow the law of nature which is “Living in Present Physically” but sometimes it is not understood that “Staying in Present Mentally” is the accurate meaning of the term “Living in Present”.
How should one assess that one is able to “Stay in Present”? According to me, when we are living in the present moment, the questions like what could have happened? or what will happen? never flash into one’s mind. Living in the moment is truly essential to be happy and get your tasks done.
It is rightly said, to fulfill one’s dreams and desires, it is important to understand the power of “Now” and accomplish the tasks in the present moment that would help you achieve your dreams. Because it is only “Now” that could build your “Next”, hence to be happy, never postpone it for the future rather design it in the present to get the foundation built for your dreams to fulfill.
