How much do you worry about things outside your control? It seems that, for many people, they spend their lives trapped in the past of regret or stuck in the fear of the future. Why? I once read a quote that the most confident people are those that focus on the present; because that is the only thing they have control over. Isn’t that the truth? We can stay up late at night worrying about what will happen this week, or we can enjoy the time afforded to us with our family and friends and focus on what’s right, when it’s right. Everything has its time, purpose and place in our life, so why try and disrupt your internal calendar?
Leave the past in the past, and the future in the future. Challenge yourself to take control of your life NOW, in the present. Live life as it should be lived, and experience it as it happens. See how it goes. Who knows, maybe you’ll end up being one of those “most confident people”. Believe in yourself, and you can achieve anything.
