Life Happens Now

Updated on November 1, 2015

Life Happens Now



This article is about focusing on the present moment. Many people miss out on life's experiences because they are preoccupied with the past or the future. We should not be so concerned about the past and not so worried about the future. If we want to get the full impact of any experience, we must be totally aware of that experience. Learn from past mistakes and have a flexible plan for the future, but remember; life happens now so live each moment fully.

Today is the only day that really matters. The past is just memories and the future is just a vision. To be successful in life, you should not only be focused on the present moment but you should also make the best of that moment. This usually requires that you have positive thoughts and act accordingly. People are often defeated by negative thinking, and they often do things that cause problems for themselves or others.

Now is the only time that actions or thoughts occur. And yet now is the particular moment that passes, and can never be recovered. That is the reason that moment should be utilized for a positive purpose; ambitious people do just that. They know that if your life is to be progressive, then you must use each moment to try to achieve important goals. These are goals that would make a positive difference in your life and in the world.

Life happens now and if you want your life to be better, you should start now to make changes that would make improvements in your life. These improvements should also help others if you want the world to be a better place. Usually we must overcome obstacles to implement changes; but that effort can be worthwhile if it makes our life better or helps us to be successful in achieving goals.

What is the difference between being successful and being unsuccessful? The most common reason for being unsuccessful is not doing whatever it takes to achieve goals. People make invalid excuses for not trying. Many people blame others or their circumstances for their failures, and many fail because they stop trying.

Successful people find out what needs to be done, and then find a way to do it. If they don't succeed at first, they keep trying. They utilize each moment to make changes to improve the quality of their lives or the lives of others. They don't say they can't do it or make invalid excuses for not doing it.

Some things we cannot change. As the serenity prayer goes: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. For example, you cannot change people, but you can change the way you interact with them.

You should develop courage to change the things you can that would improve your life or that of others. Hopefully, you will become wiser as you get older and know what you can and cannot change.

As time passes by, opportunities often present themselves. We would be wise to take advantage of these. If not, then later we may regret what could have been. Life is precious and it happens moment by moment. It can be elusive because once it happens, it is gone. All the yesterdays are gone, but if you make the best of today, then you won't regret it and, chances are, you will help make tomorrow better.

You should develop a plan for your life; and you should learn to utilize each moment by developing and expressing your talents. Many people have become wealthy by doing so. Sometimes it just takes a good idea combined with talent and hard work to produce wealth. But remember, your ultimate goal should be happiness for yourself and those you love.

Those who believe in God know that He will help them with their goals. Sometimes they ask for things that would be bad for them or someone else. God knows what would be good or bad, and He answers prayers accordingly. He helps those who want something that would be good. God loves you. You just need to be patient and have faith that He will help you.

In summary, we should be focused on each passing moment to be totally aware of life's experiences. To be successful, you should make the best of those moments. Learn to think positive thoughts and not be defeated by negative thinking.

The moment we call now passes instantly, and should be used for a positive purpose. Ambitious people know that if your life is to be progressive, you must utilize each moment to try to achieve goals that would make a positive difference in your life and in the world.

Life happens now and you should start now to make improvements in your life and the lives of others. Sometimes you must overcome obstacles, and that is worthwhile if it makes your life better or helps you to be successful in reaching goals.

Some people who are unsuccessful make invalid excuses for not doing whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Some blame others or their circumstances for their failures and some fail when they stop trying. Successful people do what needs to be done and if they don't succeed at first, they keep trying. They utilize each moment to make changes to improve the quality of their lives or the lives of others.

Some things you cannot change. However, you should develop the courage to change whatever you can that would improve your life or that of others. Hopefully, you will become wiser as you get older and know what you can and cannot change.

People should take advantage of opportunities that present themselves. If not, they may later regret what could have been. Life happens moment by moment and can be elusive because once it happens it is gone. You should make the best of today and, chances are, you won't regret it and tomorrow will be better.

Develop a suitable plan for your life, and learn to develop and express your talents. Many have become wealthy that way. Sometimes a good idea combined with talent and hard work can produce wealth; but your ultimate goal should be happiness for yourself and those you love.

Believe in God, and know that He will help you when you ask for something that would be good for you or someone else. God loves you: just be patient and have faith in Him.
