Being in the Moment

When you simply feel like life has been tougher than usual lately, here are some mantras (that I personally use) to help you get your thinking back on track, so you can feel better about today and what must be done…

No matter what, you can always fight the battles of just today.  It’s only when you add the infinite battles of yesterday and tomorrow that life gets overly complicated.


  1. Never assume that you are stuck with the way things are right now.  Life changes.
  2. Life always begins now – right now – not tomorrow or the next day or the next.  (Read The Power of Now.)
  3. The best people all have some kind of scar.
  4. A positive present changes a troubled past.
  5. Even when it’s tough, wear a smile.  Smiling doesn’t always mean you’re happy – sometimes it simply means you’re strong.  And you are.
  6. When we stop feeling sorry for ourselves, we start feeling stronger.
  7. Instead of praying for different circumstances, give thanks for what you have.  (You’ll see why.)
  8. Talk about your joys, your loves, and your dreams instead of your sorrows.
  9. The more you live, the more you learn.  The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.  Feeling incomplete is completely normal and healthy.
  10. Think of all the hundreds of thousands of steps and missteps and chances and coincidences that have brought you here.
  11. Sometimes, to be successful tomorrow you must be wrong today.
  12. What’s most important in this moment is positive focus. Make the moment important and vital by doing something meaningful.
  13. Details aside, whatever is going to happen will happen, whether you worry or not.  :)
