1.8 Being in the present 活在現在

When we talk about self improvement, we often talk about mastery of success. But if success comes at a high emotional① toll1②, it can often turn into a failure. In our life we usually either live in the future, always thinking of things to come, or in the past, where our memories hunt us, day after day. It is very rare that we put all our energy in living in the present and enjoy the emotional freedom this brings.

  When we spend time only planning or dreaming about things that didn’t happen yet, we often forget things that are extremely important right now. For example:

  Let’s say that you are always thinking on how you are going on a vacation, and how wonderful it will be, and all the adventures you are going to have. Meanwhile, in the present, you work 7 days a week and are extremely stressed. You are so stressed, as a matter of fact, that you do not see how you can take a vacation at all. In your head the thoughts of vacation become a dream that is fading③ further and further away. It becomes a sort of an escape from your grim2④ reality.

  Now let’s look at the same scenario3⑤ with a different twist. When you start having thoughts of a vacation, you realize that you work really hard, and you can not afford to let that kind of stress rule your life. So you do everything possible to take time off and make that vacation a reality. Being in the present gave you emotional freedom that didn’t cloud your judgment4.

  Past can be dangerous, if we spend most of our time there instead of living in the present. Here is an example of that:

  You just went through a break up of a long term relationship, but you can’t let go. It hunts you. You find yourself constantly thinking of your ex., analyzing5 what could have been, thinking about the reasons why the relationship ended. This makes you very unhappy.

  Same scenario with a different outlook would be like that. The relationship is over. You mourn; go through all the necessary stages, but soon you realize that it was for the best. You look at your present situation and see that it is a new beginning for you. You start dating again and realize that it can be a lot of fun. You shed the old hair style, your old wardrobe. You become a new person simply by realizing your present situation and letting go of the past. Here emotional freedom allowed you to let go of the past and successfully move on.

  This ability is so crucial that developing only that one skill will propel6 your life to unbelievable heights of success. In order for us to be able to do everything we need to in our day-to-day activities, we need to feel good. Nothing makes us feel good as not being preoccupied7 by the thoughts and emotions of things that passed or did not even happen yet. This skill is invaluable8 in the success toolbox of our self improvement.
