Most Powerful way to Live in the Moment
Does anyone remember my past post on how to generate the most powerful way to Live in the Moment?
In this article, I shared that the most powerful way is to imagine…
Imagine, you are living your life as per normal today – 7am wake up, say bye to your loved ones, go to work and be home 8pm. Hence, you do live your usual rat race life to grow wealth and get your beloved monthly paycheck.
Suddenly this happens…
You found yourself woke up in the hospital, the doctor told you that you only have few hours left to live because you met a car accident on your way home today and you are seriously wounded.
Basically, in short is to imagine the end of your life NOW and what makes your regrets. Then take action to change yourself and live for the better today.
However, how many truly understand this?
Truly Understand Live in the Moment
When I wrote that article, I also thought I have truly understood what is meant by living in the Moment, don’t regret past or worry about future etc. But I am totally wrong.
“You are so anxious about the future that you do not enjoy the present. You therefore do not live in the present or the future. You live as if you are never going to die, and then die having never really lived.”
In my past life, I was worried about whether I have enough money to take care of kids, parents, own living expenses, whether my life, work, investment plans work or not; regretting if I have made any wrong choices in the past, be it work, investment etc. Every day of course, I reminded myself to Care and live in my present.
Most of the time I did treasure my present on the outside, but inside being a high S person (DISC profiling), I am a constant worrier. After being present in the moment for a while, I would drift away to plan for the future. My guess many people also fall in this category – you know the theory, the rules of life, what’s important in the life, but to truly embrace it, not everyone can do it.
What lead to this change?
In my current life, I am different now. I truly embrace and understand living in the moment, caring your present (which what this blog is about).
I was too focusing on the tools (how to improve productivity, grow income/wealth, plan for future etc) to achieve the ultimate goal of living a fulfilling life on daily basis instead of the ultimate goal itself.
What lead to this change?
Sadly, it is something irreversible – my beloved mum passed away 1+ weeks ago. Time really don’t have reset button.
Like many people, I became a weekend son after marriage. I visited my parents every weekend while weekdays hustling with 9 to 5. On the weekend one week before my mum went into the hospital for the last time, I was emoing (worry about future, regretting about some past decisions etc), hence I decided to “take a break” and don’t visit their house for one week. Since I visited them every weekend, one week don’t visit doesn’t matter. right?
However, sadly I was wrong. That was the last weekend I can visit and talked to my mum while she is conscious. The next time I saw her after that week was in hospital where she was highly unconsciously, eyes closed, blood pressure/heart rates keep dropping etc. I tried talked to her, but she can only shake head without opening her eyes – she seems to understand what I said but cannot react to it meaningfully.
The next day afternoon, she was gone suddenly. No pulse, no heart rate, just lying there cold. I was devastated, and don’t know what to do, cannot believe this fact.
Please live a Fulfilling Life Everyday Every Moment
We always thought we have more time with our old parents, but we are wrong. Time with them is ticking away every day. One day it will suddenly be gone. There is no regret medicine, no reset in time. Gone is gone and cannot come back. No matter you are billionaires or millionaires, you cannot reset this.
We always thought that we have more time with our spouse every day, but we are wrong. One day they will be gone too. When you read this, please go tell your spouse that you love him/her and he or she is the best thing that you ever had in your life.
We always thought that we have more time to play with your kids while they are growing up every day very fast. With a blink of an eye while you are busy hustling away 9 to 5, trying to earn more and more money (maybe you already have enough, but you keep thinking you don’t. Read this post: You will likely never run out of money with 1 million: Expectation vs Reality), they are already so big. They no longer want to play with you. They want to go out with friends. By then no matter how rich you are, 10 millions/10 billions, they still rather go out with friends. You missed it means missed it. There is no reset button.
Let me share a few tweets that I have posted these few weeks after my mum passed away. I used to be posting a lot to share my views but didn’t for these 1.5 weeks after my mum passed away. Hope you get what I want to send through to anyone reading this in this world.
Move on and Living Fulfilling Life Everyday
I have moved on and now is living a fulfilling live every day.
- Wake up everyday and believe/will achieve that today will be a beautiful day
- Grateful every day on what I already have – spouse, kids, life, health, some money which is enough to sustain family for a long long time
- Grateful that I am alive and healthy and can do what I want
- Living in present every moment, never regret past or worry too much about future
- Understand life and time has no reset button – the greatest asset that one will have in life and is depleting every second. Time is ticking away…
- I will spend every moment to live a life that I want, not a life that society wants me to be
- Living a fulfilling life for every second of my life whenever possible
I truly hope that anyone that has read this article please think and reflect on your life before it is too late. Always aim to live a fulfilling life/a life that you truly believe to live for. Focus on the end goal not the tools (wealth, work, money, increase productivity, every second must work to be productive etc). Of course, these tools are important, but they are not the end goal.
Really, days are long, but years are short. Time has no reset button. You will never know if you never wake up tomorrow. (If you visit cemetery, there are people who died very young if you observe carefully, 40+, 30+, 20+ 10+ or even a baby). Don’t regret or worry too much about future.
Most important, please live in moment and Care Your Present.
