The mind wanders when I allow it and it is a beautiful thing. But I know the importance of balancing that with the here and now.

I fully embrace my life as it is today. Whenever I think about my goals and dreams, I soon come back to reality to take action to make them happen. Being conscious of what is in front of me spurs the energy to work towards that future life for myself.

I plan for my successes by intentionally focusing on what it takes to achieve them. I keep those things in mind as I move along the journey to winning.

When I take stock of my progress towards a goal, I am reminded of what is left to be done. That reminder refuels me. It causes me to focus on what is in front of me. The journey is more important than the destination.

Focusing on what I have instead of what I desire gives me a sense of gratitude. Being truly thankful for what I have allows me to pursue goals without added pressure.

I go through life with the acceptance that I have enough today. That mindset shifts my motivation to succeed to one that sees future wins as icing on the cake. Challenges are easier to handle when I view the objective as just something extra.

Today, I take my future with a grain of salt and choose to focus on life as it is today. My goal today is to make the most of the time that I have right now. Staying present causes me to really see the blessings in my life.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. How does another person’s success affect my ability to stay present?
  2. What measure do I use to determine the level of my success?
  3. What are some of my biggest wins and what makes them valuable to me?
