To find purpose in life, you must first know where to find yourself. Before you do anything, ask yourself,
“Where can I find myself?”
We live our lives in the present, not in the past. We live our lives in the present, not in the future. So if you really want to find yourself, according to Eckhart Tolle, “You cannot find yourself in the past or future. The only place where you can find yourself is in the NOW.” He is right.
“What we do now controls who we become and where we are in the future.”-
John C. Maxwell
Why do we need to find ourselves in the Now? Because everything is happening in the present, right now, right where you are. Don’t miss it. Because your future depends on what you are doing right now. If you don’t focus on the now, you will miss the opportunity to know yourself better.
John C. Maxwell says, “What we do now controls who we become and where we are in the future.” Your NOW is very important if you are to succeed in life. Don’t waste it.
Don’t live in the past. The past is gone. Don’t dwell on past failures. If you do, you are only wasting your time.
