What is the present? The present is not the past and not the future as well. The present is the present moment. The present is Now! Even in the most difficult situations, when you focus on what is RIGHT in the present moment. It makes you happier and gives you the needed energy and confidence to deal with what is wrong. Being in the present means turning our distractions, and paying attention to what is important, Now! You create your own present by what you give your attention to.
It is hard to let go of the past if you have not learned from the Past. As soon as you learn and let go, you improve the present. Look at what happened in the past, learn something valuable from it. Use what you learn to improve the present. You can not change the past, but you can learn from it. When the same situation arises, you can do things differently and enjoy a more successful present. Anytime you are unhappy in the present or feeling unsuccessful, it is time to learn from the past or plan for the future.
No one can predict or control the future. However, the more you can plan what you want to see happen, the less anxious you are in the present, and the more the future is known to you. Picture what a wonderful future would be like, create a realistic plan to help it happen. Put your plan into action in the present. Living in the present, learning from the past, and planning for the future is not all there is. It is only when you live with purpose and respond to what's important about The Present, Past and Future, that it all has meaning.
When you live and work with purposes, and respond to what is important now, you are more able to lead, manage, support, befriend, and love. Success is becoming who you are capable of being, and Progressing toward worthwhile goals. Each of us defines for ourselves what it means to be Successful.
