1 Don’t Live In Your Future on Sat 10 Sep 2011 - 15:05


It’s easy to imagine a better version of yourself that exists sometime in your future. The future version of yourself is essentially perfect by comparison — in the future you’re happy, exercising daily, eating right, beautiful, done school, successful, working a job you love, rich, famous, in love, whatever.

When you imagine an enhancement to your life and place it firmly in your future, it will remain a figment of your imagination unless you begin taking steps towards achieving it. So if you truly want to create a better life for yourself, you must earn it every day, starting today.

I repeatedly emphasize the importance of “living in the present” because although the concept of living every day to its fullest appears obvious, it is quite difficult in practice. It goes without saying that it’s considerably easier to do entertaining and enjoyable things in lieu of unappealing and difficult things — but the easy things will often be unproductive and wasteful in the grand scheme of your life’s goals.

One of the most helpful things that was ever suggested to me was the notion that there are no such things as “the past” or “the future” — there is only this very moment you’re experiencing right now. This new perception of life had profound effects on my motivation and resulted in the development of an astonishing ability to put wheels in motion and simply get things done.

“But the future exists,” I hear you argue. The future is where all your hard times are behind you — and all the good times lie ahead because you’re already happy and successful. The future is when you’ll be out on the town whenever you please, surrounded by friends and fine wines — and you don’t have a single financial concern ruining your fun, right?

If that sounds like a future you truly desire then it’s not out of the realms of possibilities — but this here and now is where you are actually at. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for all your life. This is the moment you must appreciate without all those other things you’re hoping for.

Don’t let me give the impression that dreaming is a bad thing. Dreams are really great — but don’t forget how it is you right now doing the dreaming. Once you learn to appreciate this, you will be able to enjoy every moment of your life. You’ll enjoy simply being alive and having the capacity to do all that dreaming.

Living in the present means acting like today matters. When you focus on achieving your goals today rather than pushing them off until tomorrow, the boundaries separating you and your hopeful future begin to dissolve.
