Be Present

It would be nice to be on the receiving end of this, and chances are you will, but let’s start by giving it first.  What goes around, comes around.

The most important part of this is the first line.  Be Present.

To do any of the others, and make a difference doing what follows that first line, you have to make sure you are present first.

Being present means being fully present and engaged in the moment.  Not just your physical body in the same place but fully present, intentional, and engaged, using all of your senses.

Being present and in the moment requires discipline.  Discipline from being distracted by your phone, your surroundings, and what’s going on in your own life. 

Once you can be fully present you are then ready to make a difference by being kind, complimenting people, and helping them to use their strengths.

Make a difference in your world today, and begin by being fully present.

I’m cheering for you.
