This is Dr. Fab and today’s video is really how to live in the now. Every single person in my life counts. Every single moment is an opportunity for me to either engage myself or just be an expectator and watch it go by, I don’t want to do that any longer. I’ve dedicated my life to be able to do the most that I can with what I have because at the end of the day, that’s the one answer that I’m going to have to answer to myself.
1. Be present.
2. Stop procrastinating.
3. Live in the present.
You know I told you that when I was 13 years old we moved from South America, Columbia to the United States, to Miami, Florida.
I was so excited because it was a whole new world for us and even though I was very scared, at the same time I was very excited.
Three years later, my mom and my dad said what do you guys want for Christmas and my brother, Aldo and I decided we wanted to go back to South America.
We hadn’t been in three years.
All of our friends were there, our cousins were there and they bought us a ticket for Christmas.
After Christmas we went down there and to our surprise we stayed with our aunt and she had the most amazing party where we had hundreds of people.
Our cousins our friends from school.
It was probably one of the most beautiful nights of our life.
That evening we went out to bed, my uncle had gone to a business trip so it was just my aunt, her two children and then of course my brother in one of the guest bedrooms and myself in another bedroom.
As I was sleeping throughout the night, you won’t believe what happened.
I got woken up with the back of a gun hitting me and hitting me and asking me for the safe.
I said I don’t know where the safe is, so they went to my brother’s room and they told me that they were going to kill him if he didn’t tell them.
My brother’s screaming louder and came back with the blood in their hands and they said we killed your brother.
I want you to know that that was the most devastating night of my life.
I thought I was going to die, that there was going to be no tomorrow.
Fortunately the neighbour heard the commotion and they called the police.
When the police came they rushed an ambulance, we went to the hospital.
Thank God my brother only had a few stitches in his head and I was all bruised, but that night at the hospital I made a promise to myself that I was not going to take my life for granted.
At 16 years old, I said to myself that if i was going to live another night, I was not going to take it for granted.
Ever since then I live my life like there’s only 24 hours.
I go to bed every night not expecting to wake up but if I do wake up, I want to make sure that every single day, every single day counts.
This is Doctor Fab and today’s video is really how to live in the now.
I’m sharing that emotional story that probably you have never heard me tell before because it was so personal for me but it’s the foundation is what drives me every single day to realize that every single moment counts.
Every single person in my life counts.
Every single moment is an opportunity for me to either engage myself or just be an expectator and watch it go by, I don’t want to do that any longer.
I’ve dedicated my life to be able to do the most that I can with what I have because at the end of the day, that’s the one answer that I’m going to have to answer to myself.
That’s the one question that I’m going to have to answer.
Did I do the best that I could with what I was given.
I want you to know right now that there’s probably been a time in your life where you felt like you weren’t living in the now.
If there is I want you to right now click on the like button and I want you to put it on the comment list.
I want to know right now what was one time in your life that you were not living in the now.
I want to share with you the three things that I’ve discover in how to live in the now.
Are you ready.
All right, the first thing is, I want to make sure that you’re present with everyone and everything that you do.
One of the things that I realize that is not difficult to live in the now is to live in the present with everyone and everything that we do.
Most of us are now not living in the present because we’re too worried about other things.
If you’re with somebody right now and even though you’ve spent three minutes or five minutes with them, make them count.
Look at them in the eyes instead of looking them into your text or into your phone or looking at the surroundings.
Look at them in the eyes.
When they are speaking to you, listen to them.
If you’re doing something pay attention to what you’re doing and don’t be distracted by other things but do it to your best ability.
If you do that then you start living in the now.
The second thing, and this is a great lesson that I had to learn is stop procrastinating.
All of us are procrastinating and living for later what we can do right now.
Set up a check list or something.
Don’t leave that desk until everything is done.
Make sure that you don’t go to sleep at night right.
I had a mentor friend of mine that he had an inbox and an outbox.
Every single day his assistants will fill in the inbox and he will not go to sleep until everything that was in the inbox was in the outbox.
He was one of the most productive individuals that I’ve ever met in my life.
What’s your inbox and what’s your outbox.
I want to make sure that you do everything that you need to do for that day to be the most productive that you can be.
You know what’s going to be beautiful is that you’re going to go to sleep that night feeling amazing and sleeping amazing because you were productive.
Lastly, and listen to me.
This is probably one of the best lessons that I’ve learned in living in the now.
Stop living in the past and stop living in the future.
Many of us are dwelling in the past constantly.
We’re wishing that things were the way they were before.
Guess what people, life has changed.
Life has changed, right now is all we’ve got.
Stop living in what you had in the past and embrace what you have right now as an opportunity.
For those of you that are constantly waiting until tomorrow to be able to have the corner office or to have the title that you wanted or to have the house that you want.
Stop living into the future and start appreciating what you have right not.
You may not have much right now but start appreciating it more and I promise you that you will attract more on that.
Remember that love attraction teaches us, that what we put our emphasis on, that what we focus on, we tend to expand.
I’m teaching you right now that all opportunity that I have found in my life exists in this moment right here right now you and me.
I want you to like the button, I want you to right now write me a comment on what you’re going to do right now to fulfill your present time.
What is it that you’re going to right now start doing to make sure that you live into your most potential because you’re not wasting anyone’s time or you’re not wasting the opportunity that is in front of you.
I can’t wait to hear it.
I want to see it right there in the comments sheet and I can’t wait to see you on the next video.
Remember, living in the now, you can do, I can help you do it, let’s do it together.
