One of the major reasons why we fail to find
happiness or to create unique lifestyle is because we have not yet mastered the art of
While we are home our thoughts are still absorbed with solving the challenges
we face at the office. And when we are at the office we find ourselves worrying about
problems at home.
We go through the day without really listening to what others are saying to
us. We may be hearing the words, but we arent absorbing the message.
As we go through the day we find ourselves focusing on past experiences or
future possibilities. We are so involved in yesterday and tomorrow that we never even
notice that today is slipping by.
We go through the day rather than getting something from the day. We are
everywhere at any given moment in time except living in that moment in time.
Lifestyle is learning to be wherever you are. It is developing a unique focus
on the current moment, and drawing from it all of the substance and wealth of experience
and emotions that it has to offer. Lifestyle is taking time to watch a sunset. Lifestyle
is listening to silence. Lifestyle is capturing each moment so that it becomes a new part
of what we are and of what we are in the process of becoming. Lifestyle is not something
we do; it is something we experience. And until we learn to be there, we will never master
the art of living well.
To Your Success,
