The secret of life…

 
“This is the real secret of life—to be completely engaged in what you are doing in the here and now” —Alan Watts

To be completely engaged in what you’re doing right NOW.

Are you?

Are you completely engaged in the reading of this?
 

Are you here, completely present, 100% in your body, fully experiencing this moment?

 
As I write this I am.

Now, I know that there’s a song on repeat in the background, one of my perhaps odd habits. But one that improves my focus and productivity tremendously.

It’s white noise. When the right song is playing I drop into the here and now at such a deep level that everything else fades away and all of my energy is focused on the task at hand.

It’s my favorite state, this flow state.

It’s being completely engaged.
It’s being intentional.
It’s being fully present.
It’s being in the zone where time and space fade away.

It’s…magic.
 

It’s a deep engagement with what you are doing in the present moment, the now.

 
In this state overwhelm doesn’t exist, worries evaporate, and fears fade.

How much of your day is spent in flow?
How much of your day is spent in the NOW?

If you’re worrying you’re not in the now.

If you’re doubting you’re not in flow.

If you’re multitasking you’re not completely engaged.

So…
 

How much of your day are you in the now with intention and presence?

 
What would happen if you increased that amount just 1% a day for the next 30 days?

Perhaps worth experimenting with.

Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
