Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Embrace The Present

Embrace The Present


Motivational Power Quote


Embrace The Present

"You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest

that it leaves your arms too full

to embrace the present,."

Jan Glidewell, author  


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Embrace the present  

Focus your energy on the future, for that's we're going to be spending the rest of our life, make each day are building blocks of a better tomorrow.  

As we embrace the present we are embracing the things that we can control, adjust or change. We also have the ability to adjust our sails and to change our direction and determine our outcome.   

What we do in the present will impacts our future and the direction our life takes and the results that we achieve.   

Letting go of the past frees your mind to focus your efforts and energy into fulfilling your dreams.

Embrace the present and you open the gateway to your future.

Here's a quote shared that a friend sent to me, in regards to the past, thought I would share with you:

"You can't change the past, but your actions today changes the future" - Ashleigh Brilliant

I am really grateful to find all these motivational posts here on activerain & really enjoyed your post here. Thank you!

This one reminded me of a staging consultation I had.  The owner was clinging so tightly to her furniture, old paintings, and "things" that until she was willing to "let them go", she could not sell her house and move on to her future!

That's a pretty powerful message there. Makes you think...or should.

The past may present good memories but you can't live there. Thanks for another episode in "Wise living from Lou!"

What a great quote. Living in the past does leave very little room for the present. :)
