Now is Better

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new.” Dan Millman

How much mental energy are we giving to things we can’t change or control?

Focusing all our energy on past mistakes is only draining us from the energy we need to build the new. The same goes for focusing too much on all the things we could do, instead of the things we are doing.

Find something that can slap yourself out of mental and emotional states that are making you feel helpless and stuck.

No amount of worrying is going to make it better and less worry-full. We could worry ourselves into oblivion and there would still be room for more. Same with anxiety, or self-doubt, or anger, or emotionlessness.

Don’t focus on who you should be, who you wish you would be, who you can’t seem to be, rather focus on the next action that will create a little bit of sunshine and meaning within the person you ARE right now.

The nice thing about the past is that we are building it this very moment, as each second ticks behind us.

This allows us to put our past self and mistakes behind us — no matter how close to the present they were — and work on becoming a little better and a little more like the person we want to be today.

Be here now.

Start now.

It may be “too late”. But more than likely not. Better now than never.
