Live in the “Now”

Gary Young speaking at Raindrop seminar

Today Gary shares some of his favorite inspirational quotations and exhorts us to “live in the Now!”

I want to share some quotes with you that have been helpful to me.

“He who has so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition will waste his life in fruitless effort and multiply the grief which he proposes to remove.” Again, it comes back to knowing who you are and what you don’t want.

“Failure is the productive part of success. It provides a road that does not have to be traveled again.” How many reading this have failed at something? Does failure measure your success? Does failure determine who you are? Does failure determine your success?  Failure determines your amount of knowledge. Knowledge can determine your success.

“Do not allow the criticisms of others to steal your dreams or stop you from moving forward.  Are you going to give up or get up?”

“Our past gives us our identity; the future holds the promise of our salvation and fulfillment. Yet both are an illusion. To be successful, you must live in present time.” This is why the three letter word “now” is absolutely so powerful, and we can all use it.

You must accept and proclaim what it is that you want now, because you live in the now. You don’t live five minutes ago—you will not be alive five minutes from now. Five minutes from now you’ll be in the now.

When you come from that space of knowing, the sky is the limit, the universe is the limit. Just grab it and go. There isn’t one of you reading this who could not be a Crown Diamond in 12 months. If you really knew that and you knew it to where you could feel it, taste it, and breathe it—you would do it!
