Introduction: You are Here, But Where Exactly?

The mundane and everyday are just around the corner and you still find yourself excited about what lies in your future. This is time to remind yourself of the beauty of being alive, because it is a life-long learning process. The idea that you have not yet discovered everything, that even when something feels like it has been done “enough,” is exciting. There are infinite insights waiting to be uncovered through today’s present moment which was created by yesterday’s past moment. Even if you feel that you have wasted your time, there is hope in this present moment. Nothing can be taken away from you and within this present moment, it is possible to design your future and discover the magic of the now. Remember this as you make decisions about the direction of your life: no one else is living it for you.
Whether you are an adventurer, a social worker, a salesperson, or a scientist, you have the same agenda: to learn and grow in order to have the best life possible. You all have the same amount of time and work on your plate: 24 hours a day, seven days per week. Evenings and weekends are abundant with opportunity. It is during these times that most people waste their time while they can be doing something exciting – yet most people are generally idle during these times. It is a shame that most people slouch on the couch in front of television, or rely on their phone instead of having face-to-face conversations with people. They waste their time without even realizing it! Why not make the most of your time?

This article explores the 3 pillars of a healthy mindset and how they look when applied to your life.
Pillar #1: The past
When you pay attention to the past, it is often because you want to change it. When you are in the past, you identify with your mistakes and may ruminate over them until they become self-fulfilling prophecy. When you operate out of negative emotions like shame, guilt, anger and fear, you are not in the present moment. The past is only a part of who you are. It is not your identity. You can move through it and keep it as a reference point but it needs to be stored away so that you can stay in the present moment.
