Living In the Moment

Today I have been running around making sure we have got on top of the tasks and processes here in the US before I depart for LA and Australia on friday.
It's interesting we as a business have a company that spans Asia, Australia and the United States.

In all this multitasking today I had to remember to live in the moment, not worry about the future or the past

For me Living in the moment is a really hard thing to do it's virtually impossible all of the time 
but when I practice it the path becomes clearer, and things that are outside of my control are recognised
and let go rather than taking energy from a source that has a daily limit.

By removing the clutter caused by focusing on the past and future, and focusing on living in the moment

It clears a path that let's me focus on what I am inspired to do.
When I am inspired other people are inspired and so on and so on.

People often ask me how I work the hours I do, then on the flip side they say "I wish i could do what you do"

Well its simple you can do what I do.
Just get inspired

To be inspired for me at least I have to be free from the clutter in my headsIf

I believe if we are not careful our days can often pass us by while our minds are elsewhere, or we can channel so much energy into negativity or into things we cant control.

I believe we have a daily amount of power when we wake and we decide who we give that power to.

It is important to me to make sure that power goes to the places that are most important.
I'm sure we all know what it feels like to run on empty, like a car when you are running on empty
stress and anxiety raise their heads.
How often have you eaten a meal and not really tasted it, or completed a chore or drove to work without really thinking about it?

Living in the moment does not mean dont plan or set goals

I often ask people what is their motivation, what is it that inspires them, what are their goals.
So often I hear "I don't know"
To me this life we lead is very precious and we all have the capability to steer it in any direction.
Without goals it is like 2 football teams running around a field without an goals.

have a great day



Great Quotes and Kelly Cutrone

I had a great holiday with Jackie in town but besides family and friends I was guided
to connect with the author Kelly Cutrone.
I don't really read books not unless they are technical manuals, coding concepts or 
brain matter of good and positive nature but I was drawn to read a book that she wrote called 
Normal gets you Nowhere.
Wow what a great book

I just wanted to share with you a couple of quotes because they still resonate with me today
I hope you will like them as much as I did.

Quote 1

" I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything.
I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know.
I'm one of those people"
-- John Lennon

Quote 2

"I was always fascinated by people who are considered completely normal, because I find them the weirdest of all".
-- Johnny Depp

Quote 3 (shortened)

Do not simply believe what you hear just because you have heard it for a long time
Do not follow tradition blindly merely because it has been practiced like that for generations
Do not be quick to listen to rumours
Do not be fooled by outward appearances
Do not hold onto any view of idea just because you are comfortable with it
You should go beyond opinion and belief
You can rightly reject anything which when accepted, practiced, and perfected leads to more aversion, more craving and more delusion.
Conversely, you can rightly accept anything which when accepted and practiced leads to unconditional love, contentment and wisdom.These things allow you 
time to develop a happy and eaceful mind.
This should be the criteria on wat is and what is not the truth.

From the Kalama Sutta "The Buddha"

Great words from great minds
Let them infuse your mind and empower your day
