One thing you’ll hear from a lot of people recapping a car accident which they caused is that they lost their concentration for a minute. Maybe they were thinking about something stressful at work that day, or their next vacation, but regardless they were not thinking about driving. This is despite the fact that they were likely headed in the “right” direction at the time of the accident.
Think about how this applies to the rest of your life. Maybe you’ve got a big goal, and you may be making progress toward this goal, slow or fast, but the second that you think about bigger stuff you get derailed. So, for example, you are out to lose 40 pounds, and after losing 10 you start imagining how much more work it is going to take to get to 40, and respond by eating like crazy for a whole weekend. Today I invite you to stay in the moment. Trust that you’re heading in a good direction, and instead of immediately thinking about the big picture, think about where you are and not where you’re headed. It’s a great recipe to avoid being derailed.
Stay in the moment. It’s where life happens!
