Motivational Quotes 5-9-03
May 09, 2003

One of the major reasons why we fail to find happiness or to create a unique lifestyle is because we have not yet mastered the art of being.

While we are home our thoughts are still absorbed with solving the challenges we face at the office. And when we are at the office we find ourselves worrying about problems at home.

We go through the day without really listening to what others are saying to us. We may be hearing the words, but we aren't absorbing the message.

As we go through the day we find ourselves focusing on past experiences or future possibilities. We are so involved in yesterday and tomorrow that we never even notice that today is slipping by.

We go through the day rather than getting something from the day. We are everywhere at any given moment in time except living in that moment in time.

Lifestyle is learning to be wherever you are. It is developing a unique focus on the current moment, and drawing from it all of the substance and wealth of experience and emotions that it has to offer. Lifestyle is taking time to watch a sunset. Lifestyle is listening to silence. Lifestyle is capturing each moment so that it becomes a new part of what we are and of what we are in the process of becoming. Lifestyle is not something we do; it is something we experience. And until we learn to be there, we will never master the art of living well.

Just remember WHEREVER YOU ARE, BE THERE. When your at work work. When your at play play. When your talking to you spouse talk to you spouse. When your talking to your kids talk to your kids. When your at the dinner table be at the dinner table. When your at the game be at the game. When your at the show be at the show be there don't let your mind wander bring your attention back enjoy it for what it is. Give everyone the gift of attention.

To Your Success,
Jim Rohn
