Why is it important to live in the moment?
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has yet to come. We have only today. Let us begin.”- Mother Teresa
Lots of people spend their time dealing with what happened yesterday. If you continue to live in yesterday, you will continue to miss what is happening today. Today is all that you have. Why wasting it?
You can’t enjoy today if you keep living in yesterday. You need today to build tomorrow. You need today to build your future. If you don’t manage today well, you will not enjoy tomorrow.
If you want to enjoy tomorrow, pay attention to what you are doing today. Pay attention to what you are experiencing right now. Pay attention to how you are spending your time. Pay attention to what today means to you. Pay attention to the results you are getting today. You need today to get tomorrow. If not, you are going to be disappointed.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi famously said, “The future depends on what we do in the present.”
If you want your future to be better than what you have today, you must focus on what you are doing right now. Believe you can, and you will.
