Being in “The Moment”

1

i am in the moment most when i am rendering service This morning I had the pleasure of speaking with my good friend, Ryan John Phillips, creator of the “Return to Happiness” documentary, book and movement. We haven’t spoken for a few days so in our “catching up” Ryan said the following… “You know Shay, I am in the moment most, when I am rendering service.” After he said it we both had a “Whoa” feeling. That statement just seemed to resonate at such a high level that it physically made me sit back in my chair with an immediate reply of “Wow Ryan, that is good.”

So what does it mean to be “in the moment”? For me, it is being aware and conscious of your self and your surroundings. To be grounded in the here and NOW, not worrying about the future or the past, and taking a look at all the greatness that surrounds you. It is a feeling of calmness (vs the chaos most may be used to). Too many times we get caught up in the “what ifs” in life. What if I don’t get the promotion, what if I miss my flight, what if I _______ (fill in the blank). It is amazing how that blank is usually filled with something negative. Not too often do I hear “What if I change someones life for the better today”.

Why? Sadly we are programmed more negatively than positively with all the media, news, distractions, etc in the world to keep us in fear and continuing the thoughts of lack. That is one of the huge driving factors of starting StandUpAndLead. It is to assist in being in the moment, shifting consciousness and awareness to see the good that surrounds us vs looking at the negative. There will always be both, but life is a TON more fun to live in a positive space vs a negative one (if you find yourself in a negative space, try positive for a day…if you don’t like it you can always go back :-) ).

What being of service and being in the moment allows you to do is start that shift of turning around the negative “what ifs” in life to seeing the good in the world, how you can help and as the great Zig Ziglar has always said “If you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want.” By being in the moment, you are aware of those opportunities to be of service, assist others and through the Law of Reciprocity more good will come to you in greater abundance.

Enjoy “The Moment”.
