Rather than focusing solely on what doing something brings you or the result it could create, try to focus on how the act of execution is beneficial.
I used to focus so much on the end result or the final goal but I would find myself missing the feeling of joy. It seemed fleeting because I was depending so much on the result.
Whether it was a show date, a business goal, or school.
I started becoming more present with what I was doing and this helped me to enjoy and embrace it more even when it is or was challenging.
For example, I may not love the idea of a project for school, but I can recognize that doing it is supporting me in my program, giving me more perspective, and supporting me in using my time for growth.
In bodybuilding, I don’t look at food as the vehicle to a physique, I look at it as nourishing, energizing, satisfying, etc for that day.
I also look at my plan from my coach and identify how it’s benefitting me outside of a physique or future show or building muscle…
This process and each day is so much more rewarding than anything else.
Given so much in life can be unpredictable, I’m learning more and more to celebrate the actions I’m taking because that is ultimately what’s making up my life each day.
What do you do to help you stay present?
