Last weekend we hosted our first annual event,“Energy” and the audience came in around 9:45 am and mixed and mingled for about 15- 20 minutes. I started the event and I asked everyone to close their eyes and answer 5 questions about their environment which included:
- What was I wearing?
- What color was the carpet?
- What was on the stage?
- What color was my wife’s dress?
- How many cameras did we have in the room?
I asked everyone to open their eyes and tell me their answers. The majority of our crowd could answer half of these questions, with a few who could answer all of them. At that moment it dawned on me that so many of us are doing two things as we operate in life which include:
#1- We are focused on the past
#2- We are anticipating the future
How much wasted energy do you spend worrying about the past? And anticipating the future? Imagine re-directing that energy on the present moment and the power of “Now.”
Want to “Rip Off the Rearview Mirror” and live in the present moment?
