Present Moment: The surest way to achieve that goal.
Having goals and objectives is surest way of reaching the heights you desire. However, during the course of setting and accomplishing goals, it can become so easy to lose sight of what’s truly valuable and important, the present moment.
When I am anxious, my favorite verses of Gospels are; Don’t worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself. You have enough to worry about today’’ and Jesus’ sentiments “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
Regardless of what the goal may be, whether it has to do with saving extra cash, adding some weight, resigning the current job, starting a business, going back to school, meeting family and friends more, or regular medical checkups, learning to accept, acknowledge, and completely appreciate the present moment is absolutely necessary to not only reaching goals, but realizing them in the most gratifying and enjoyable way possible.
Quiet often, most of us may forget to appreciate the most important facets in life such as friendships, family, and health. Often times this behavior is displayed through actions such as skipping a family gathering and sliding in a training session, making excuses to avoid going out with friends and family members. Generally leaving no space for flexibility.
What truly molds us as people is the process we go through in order to attain these goals and objectives. Live, indulge, and appreciate the entire process as it reveals and unfolds, because life is utterly too short to be troubled about the past or concerned for the future. Living presently enthuses you in achieving your goals. And like I often say, what you do day in day out determines whether you will achieve your goals.
