The desire to live your day with intention is easier said than done. What you need is having presence with a purpose.
There is a lot of talk about being present. In fact, you could say it’s all the rage. But most of us are present with technology or interruptions.
We are only as present as the next person who grabs our attention first.
- The email that shows up on our phone.
- The text from your girlfriend.
- The screams of our children.
Our day seems to always be putting the fires out. We’re just refereeing the day.
And yes, distractions will occur. But it’s how we handle them when they arrive that determines whether we are responding versus reacting.
Here we are. Another day in the game of life. Are you choosing presence or reaction?
Are you getting wrapped up in all the stuff that keeps you from your goals? Or are you ready to wrap yourself up in presence?
The K.I.S.S. ~ W.R.A.P. yourself up in presence!
I was watching football. Yes! The college season is coming to a close. Thank goodness for Bowl games. But what caught my eye was the game between the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints. It was an incredible match between these two teams. Both had strong offenses and defenses. It came down to the last 45 seconds of the game.
Now if you watched from the beginning, you could see the intensity and the passion of the players. They were not shopping for Christmas presents in their heads. They were not concerned about bills that are due. They weren’t even thinking about how good they did or didn’t look on TV.
It was ALL about the one game; the next play, the next block, the next tackle, the next interception, the next down.
Presence is the totality of awareness. Whether it’s sitting in silence, being still in the moment, or responding with activity and vigor. Presence is the action that moves you forward in life.
So invest with daily consistency, increase your effectiveness, and W.R.A.P. yourself up in presence.
- Wait – It’s not about doing nothing, sitting around waiting. Waiting is an act of being still. You’re calculated in what you do with the presence of mind to keep your heart and head in the game.
- Renew – Keep your dream alive in your heart. Don’t put your dream on the back burner or left on paper or in the planner. You can’t do it all now. But you can keep your dream alive; renew it in your heart.
- Awareness – Ready yourself. Be watchful and anticipate what’s to come. Watch the doors open and even some close. Awareness keeps you alert and ready.
- Prepare – Take A.I.M. Planning is a good tool. So use it and take the next step. One step at a time leads to miles of greatness. You are not going to win the game of life in one day. Prepare every day and take aim!
You can choose to flounder from one thing to the next. You can make it your purpose to live based on everyone else’s calendar and schedule.
Or you can have presence with a purpose that continues to lead you on your journey.
You’re just not going to wake up letting life happen to you. You are going to be apart of the process, the purpose, your presence.
Nothing is impossible!
This is the day to rise up, to shine bright, and to be aware.
“Let your presence be the essence of your day!”
