10. If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.Lao Tzu
This is life in a nutshell for most of us. We are always worried about our future or past, day in and day out. The only way to break this vicious cycle is to live in the moment, right here, right now. This is the way God wants you to be. It’s good to cherish happy memories or make efforts to plan a better future but it’s toxic to regret what you couldn’t achieve or lose your present happiness and health in the worries of future. Perhaps that’s why, it’s called the present or a gift to us.

It’s a harsh world out there ready to knock you down at every step of your journey to success. In the struggle to achieve, no one is a true friend as people are envious. You are your biggest friend as well as enemy because if you adopt a defeatist attitude after a couple of setbacks, you will never rise but the whole world together cannot keep you down if you rise up after every knock you get. So, do not give up, brush yourself and get back in the race.
13. Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it.Charles R. Swindoll
When an unpleasant incident occurs in our life, it is up to us how long we choose to grieve about it. Stronger is the man who feels the pain but decides to get up and move on. Life has much nicer gifts to offer in return of the losses you suffer. If you keep sitting and refuse to let go, how would you get those gifts just meant for you? So, take your time to heal and move on. Never stay down and relive the bad memories as they would just hold you back and not let you move forward.
