There are so many things that we have to think about on a daily basis. Being present and in the moment can be difficult at times but we must do it. Thinking about the future or thinking about the past takes you away from the joy you can have in the present. The present is it's own universe just waiting for you to take advantage of it! How many times are you thinking about something else rather than seeing what is in front of you, right now? How many opportunities have you missed because you were not in the moment? Opportunities to: meet women or men, make new friends, make a business deal, create a new business contact etc. You have absolutely no control over the future or the past. Why not worry about something that you do have control over, the present.
Open your eyes to the present moment and see the beauty in it......Understand and see possibilities , see what you have been missing out on. If you are the type of person that lives in the future, STOP! I know thinking about the future can be very exciting but your performance suffers when you do. How affective can you be with your mind in the future and your body in the present?
If you are a glutton for punishment thinking about the past might be your guilty pleasure. Why subject yourself to mistakes you have already made? It just does not make any sense. Doing this affects your whole entire mood, your posture, your tone voice. Living in the moment is forgetting your mistakes and creating new possibilities.
