“We stay in the moment, because our future is shaped by the present.”
Like him or dislike him, but Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders is engaging and has some wisdom. I was recently watching a documentary and he dropped this truth as if he was reading from my playbook.
Whether you are speaking as a coach, an athlete, a father, mother, or any line of work, the present moment is the most important one that you have.
Living in the past is dangerous, and looking too much into the future without a plan is not wise. One of the surest ways to make a foundation for your future is to take care of the here and now. The moment where your feet are.
It seems so simple, yet is one of the most difficult things to do. Don’t fall into the trap of wanting to get to your future without understanding that you need to put the daily work in.
Spend your days knowing that as you control and stack your present moments on top of each other you are actually creating your future, and done correctly and consistently it will be a bright future.
I’m cheering for you.
