Happiness And The Ability To Live In The Present Moment

There is a super tight connection between happiness and the ability to live in the present moment. A lot of people believe that happiness is tied to the things that happen to you, it’s not true at all. 40% of your happiness levels are present by genetics, 60% you are in complete control of. Happiness comes down to the mind, thoughts, mindset, attitude and you are 100% in control of what you are thinking. You may not be able to control how you feel at the moment but you can always be in control of what you think. That will change how you feel.

1. If you are living in the past, you are going to be depressed because you are rehearsing things that happened to you that is not going to happen again.

2. If you are living in the future, you are going to be anxious, because you are anticipating what is coming or you are wishing for things that aren’t happening yet.

3. Being in the present is where the gold is. Being in the present moment is where you will feel the most at ease, and where happiness flourishes.

This takes us back to the question, “how do you be present?” Being present literally is nothing more than the skill of having your thoughts is at this moment; not in the past nor in the future. The way you teach yourself how to do that is the moment you catch yourself starting to worry. The moment you catch yourself drifting to the future or drifting to the past is a moment of tremendous power because you basically just woke up. You basically noticed that you are not here at this particular moment.
