What are you doing right now?
Other than reading these words, that is.
What were you doing a few moments before? More importantly, what will you do in a few moments from now?
What are your most important priorities in life? Are you taking the right steps, the inspired actions today that will get you closer to your most important priorities in life?
Stephen Covey called these the big rocks. David Allen calls them your next actions.
Every great teacher, coach, mentor and author has written about the power of acting in the now.
You’ve been told to seize the moment. You’ve been implored to connect the big goals in your life with personal action.
And yet, most of us keep missing the point once in a while.
Think about it. We only have control over the present moment. We cannot change the moment that has passed, nor can we act in the future.
But we can change our future – and the only way of changing our future and getting to where we want to get is to act in the present moment.
The present moment has more power than you credit it with, and it has the potential of changing your life for the better beyond your wildest imagination.
The key to success in all walks of your life is to take positive, inspired action in every moment.
In the now.
When you do it, you make every moment count; and everything you do makes a difference.
It’s time to get rid of inaction, indecision and laziness. Starting now.
Make yourself a promise of making every moment count. A promise of making every moment a moment of inspired personal action. When you do this, you will be wildly successful in everything you do. You will have the Midas Touch, with everything you do turning to gold.
Excited? You should be.
A single inspired action right now will have far reaching consequences in your life. What you’re doing right now is really more important than you think.
What will you do right now?
Do not spend any time in day dreaming or castle building; hold to the one vision of what you want, and act now.
