The Wisdom of Maximizing the Moment

Posted by Herman Najoli on June 12, 2009

A couple of days ago I got a unique card from a friend who is a practitioner of personal development. What caught my attention immediately was it’s title: Follow Your Destiny, Wherever It Leads You! This title was powerful to me because that very same morning I had written in my blog about Plotting Your Destiny. What a coincidence that I would receive a card along the same lines on the same day! This act of providence sent me a great message which was solidified even more when I read some of the words on the inside. Here’s part of what it said:“There comes a time in your life when you realize that if you stand still, you will remain at this point forever. You realize that if you fall and stay down, life will pass you by.”

This was huge for me because I am just at that point when I have made a decision to take a leap of faith in my personal life. My decision to leave a rewarding job where I am adding value to at-risk youth so that I could start my organization in which I could potentially multiply value to society is an attempt to plot my destiny. The card went on to say:

“Rather than wondering about or questioning the direction your life has taken, accept the fact that there is a path before you now. Shake off the “why’s” and “what if’s” and rid yourself of confusion. Whatever was – is in the past. Whatever is – is what’s important. The past is a brief reflection. The future is yet to be realized. Today is here.”

What a beautiful message! This card cemented for me the truth that we must maximize every moment. The key to an epic life is in being able to seize every single day and utilize every single opportunity life offers you to live up to your full potential. Don’t settle for less when you can have more. You were designed for accomplishment and engineered for greatness! Maximize the meoment! Live an epic life! Get into the flow!
