Present In The Moment Equals Success In Your Business!

I had a realization in my business the other day that to be successful in your business you have to be present in the moment! Most of the time I am but on Tuesday I was not. I had this dark cloud over my head that cast a spell over me. I was living in the past for a moment like it was my future. I was entertaining those self- sabotaging thoughts that were preventing me from moving forward. I was stuck in moment that wasn’t the present moment, that wasn’t portraying the real me, the creative me that is passionate about helping my clients. So what are some things I do that keep me in the present moment.

One of the biggest things I do is internalize that this life I’m living is a journey or a process and that I am right where I’m suppose to be. So when it comes to my business, I have the same attitude. That keeps me out of the past and also it stops me thinking about things like where I’m supposed to be.

Another thing I do is I help others. This may sound weird because it’s also what I do in my business. But this is the important part of it because when I’m helping others in my business or in life I am present in the moment. I don’t think about what happened yesterday or what will happen tomorrow. I am totally there for the person I am with.

The coolest thing I do is just be. Realizing that I believe that all my decisions are made in the present. Any action I take is in the present. Also even the emotions I feel are in the present. So it really does nothing for my business if I’m living in the past or thinking about the future. Really the past is the old story. The future is what I’m journeying toward. The present is really where I can live in my sweet spot. The present is the daily stuff I do to enhance and grow my business. It’s where the clients I work with get what they need in the present! How cool is that!

I have a curious nature and I was wondering what prevents us from living in the present. I think it’s really wishing for things that will not happen over night. Or it’s worry about things that might happen. It’s okay to wish for things and dream of things as long as you are enjoying the moment you are in. “Worry,” on the other hand, is like a bad word because to worry about things that might happen in your business or worry about things that can fail will never help you to live in the present. Plus worrying about something that can happen puts you in a make- believe world because it hasn’t happened. I know this sounds crazy but really what has worry ever done for anybody.

I have a mentor that always says to live life, like you mean it! The only way you really do that is by being present in the moment! I would love to hear from you now! What keeps you present in the moment! How do you live life in the present moment like you mean it?
