Motivation. If you wait for the perfect opportunity, It wont happen.

Updated on September 30, 2013

Motivation- There are lots of time in our lives when we need motivation to get going. To get something started or something done. Procrastination can be your worst enemy in these situations and can lead you to get down and depressed and stuck in the 'doldrums'.

Okay what is this Hub about. Well what it is about is is being in the present moment. Living in the present and acting in the present...

It is so easy these days to live in the past or live in the future. By keeping in the present we are more likely to experience pleasure and joy and not be imprisoned by been distracted about the past or the future. I know we are encouraged by media to dream of possessions we might can have. Relationships that look perfect in glossy magazines. Houses that look perfect just right in front of us their to grasp. The reality is such material extravagance will always be beyond our grasp . It could be so easy to get frustrated and envious at what others have which always seem to be more than us.

Anyway getting back to my main point. We need to live in the present. Concentrate on the here and now. Imagine if we attempted a golf shot thinking about tomorrow or next week or next month or any other subject instead of concentrating on hitting the ball. Right were are likely to slice or draw it or not even hit it at all. Similarly if we procrastinate for too long we may never even attempt it.

What I'm trying to say is live now make the most of the moment. Tomorrow is tomorrow and today is today. If you try and live in the future or live in the past you will be miserable. Trust me,been there done that. meanwhile 5,10,15 or 20 years can whittle away before your very eyes. Opportunity went left unseen because you were daydreaming about tomorrow or repenting about yesterday
