At this particular moment, there’s only one thing you can do

Sometimes the deepest sentences in life, are the simplest with a pure and very basic meaning… We watch movies, read stories and live experiences, to finally express one word… such as Love, Fun, Pain, Loss… etc

We LEARN… Yes we learn the meanings of an already known word to us, we re-discover it throughout many sophistication, we feel that if we learn it the hard way, we will keep what learned. Well we may be right! but not so quite…

You see, when an information, a relationship, a deal, a prize or virtually anything, comes easy we tend to underestimate its value, or even take it for granted… Unlike when we have to work really hard for it… If you received an advice from a friend for free… you might not take it as serious as if it would’ve come to you from a professional consultant that charged you 1,000$ to give you the exact piece of advice.

This week’s tip, explores a basic and fundamental principle… What we call: The Moment…

“What day is it?”
It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
A.A. Milne

As a senior strategist, with a strong force of habit, I can’t help but living far away in the future while living my present day… Whether I was writing a plan, evaluating and studying a business case and so on… Unfortunately I discovered that by sometimes living in the future, you lose sight of the present, but most importantly, you lose both… Cause the picture of that beautiful scene, no matter how clear and vivid it is, is only a representation of how you felt when you were there… and if you can’t remember how the air was twinkling on your cheeks while you took a long look at the beautiful mountains, the picture won’t deliver that feeling to you…

Therefor,in everyday, you should look out and enjoy the moment, cause sometimes you may be lucky to see a rainbow and sometimes you may just see a sunshine, and sometimes you don’t … Just remember this, every moment is the best moment you will ever have, so take advantage of it TODAY, NOW and LIVE it to the fullest… As it were your last… cause it is YOUR Last… And the next moment, is simply… Different.

Enjoy your Week!

Believe in your ability to surprise yourself

The mornings in Istanbul smell differently from other countries, same thing when I used to wake up in probably any other country… Maybe it was the weather, maybe it was the hotel / house / room or any variation of the different accommodation that I had, but I was sure it wasn’t that… it’s the attitude I had when I woke up that influenced the reality around me… Every time!

You see, every day you wake up, you have a choice, to smile and LIVE that day, or not… And most importantly you need to believe in your ability to LIVE and not just Survive the day

The beauty of being human, is that you can achieve whatever you want to, if you have enough faith that you can do it… Unlike other creatures, that may not have that choice, we as humans have a lot of untapped potential that would make us go beyond so many limiting beliefs and even impress ourselves on our way…

When you were a kid, life was different, you believed you could do anything, and suddenly you grew up to start thinking before you actually do something, and then you started to think more and more, and then started having fear of failing and the voice that once told you that YOU CAN DO IT… Have grew up to say YOU CANNOT DO IT… Therefor, you need to walk up to a new morning, and believe in the your ability to impress yourself, to surprise yourself, cause you can do MORE THAN YOU THINK… Just try 🙂

If you don’t like how things are, change it. You are not a tree.
