How to Live a Fulfilling Life: 9 Thoughts from the Last 2500 Years

Do you wish your life was stress free and everything flowed smoothly ? This article might contain the answer to your question.

The greatest power inside you can only be realized when you decide to do every little thing with your heart in it. In the morning pray for a day full of strength and blessing to make the right choices. Go out there and focus on doing the best job you can. Be aware of your everyday moments.

Exercise present moment awareness. At night before sleeping, read out all your desires and let go of them with unwavering faith that the power you believe in will MAKE IT SO.

All the wisdom we need is around us, here are 9 simple thoughts from thought leaders which if practiced consistently will show you the answer :)

1“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” - Buddha(563 BC)

Calm the restlessness and anxiety. Consider yourself lucky that Buddha is personally giving you advice to stay in the moment. Give some deep thought to the words above. If you do not find the advice useful then consider practicing it for a day and you will quickly realize how difficult it is. Do not discard this message but practice it.

2“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
- Buddha(563 BC)

So you want to be healthy, then get healthy thoughts. Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich. Spend your time thinking about thoughts which you have consciously decided to think. Use your lessons and experience from the past to live earnestly in the present. Surround yourself with thoughts about your desirable outcomes rather than ones that negatively affect you.

3“The point of power is always in the present moment.” - Louis L Hays (born 1926)

Teacher in all cultures and religion have stressed the importance of being in the present. There definitely might be a deep secret that they all preach us this lesson. Practice and find out the secret.

4“You'll seldom experience regret for anything that you've done. It is what you haven't done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it. Value your present moments. Using them up in any self-defeating ways means you've lost them forever.” - Wayne Dyer (born 1940)

Do not use your time to make yourself an emotional hostage. Forgive yourself and connect with the source of life. Experience the Power of Now !

5“Present-moment living, getting in touch with your now, is at the heart of effective living. When you think about it, there really is no other moment you can live. Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives.” - Wayne Dyer (born 1940)

The truth is "Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives." So why are you wasting the Now thinking about that same thing which you thought about 10 years ago? Decide, Take action and Clear your mind. Think new thoughts to create a new life.

6“The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.” - Abraham Maslow (lived 1908 - 1970)

Abraham Maslow was one of leading psychologists to ever live. His Hierarchy of needs has become the basis of all studies for human behavior. Maslow believed what a man can be, he must be. He always stressed the importance of being in the present as a significant component to helping you reach your true potential.

7Eternity is not the hereafter...this is it. If you don't get it here you won't get it anywhere. - Joseph Campbell (lived 1904 - 1987)

Are you chasing the dream? One day when...then I will be happy. The pot of gold is in front of you, only if you are willing to see it. Don't save the best for last. Be good today. Be kind today. Be loving today. Be helpful today. Be caring today. Be gracious today. Be Grateful today. Be Fun today. Be Friendly today. If you don't get it here you won't get it anywhere.

8The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. - Robert Louis Stevenson (lived 1850 - 1894)

One of the greatest authors to ever live was also a firm believer in the Power of Now. Enjoy the small things in your life. Break a sweat while delivering your duties and enjoy the warm meal. Thank yourself that you have finished reading this article and did not leave it incomplete or bookmarked it to be read later. Respect the power you have in the "Now". Do your duty and work towards your dream but let the work be the satisfaction you seek.

9 "A man watches his pear tree, day after day, impatient for the ripening of the fruit. Let him attempt to force the process, and he may spoil both the fruit and tree. But let him patiently wait, and the ripe pear, at length, falls into his lap." - Abraham Lincoln (lived 1809 - 1865)

I don't want to spoil the perfect words of Abraham Lincoln by adding my thoughts. Have you found the answer yet ?

  2. Hi Mr. Biggs,

    I totally agree with you.. We must make full use of whatever present moment we have!

    “Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back.” - Harvey MacKay

    Best Wishes
