Do Not Lose Today

by Steve Maraboli

“This day has been handed to us to shape as we choose. However, this blessing is often overlooked because we tend to focus on the two days in every week that we should not worry about. Two days that dilute our experience of today with an injection of anxiety and fear.

One of these days is yesterday; with all its mistakes and stresses, its victories and losses, its aches and pains. Yesterday has come and passed. There is not a thing you can do to bring back yesterday. We cannot undo anything that happened. We cannot un-say a single word we said. Yesterday is gone.

The other day we should not worry about yet Continue reading

LIVE In The Present

For many people, sadness and suffering is not a result of present experiences. Rather it is pain caused by regretting and resenting the past, or worrying about the future.

I often wondered to myself wherein lay the key to his success and popularity. Upon meeting him, one really could not notice anything particularly remarkable about him.

One day, I picked up a newspaper only to find a picture of this young rabbi sitting and chatting with President Ronald Reagan in the Oval Office, accompanied by a write-up about how he was sharing the message of Chanukah with the president. The story was carried nationally. That was enough for me. I had to find out how this young “shnook” was doing it. I asked him how he managed to accomplish all of these wonderful things.

No Regrets

unnamed

Karl Pillemer, a professor at Cornell University, interviewed more than a thousand older Americans from different economic, educational, and occupational backgrounds and asked them to share the most valuable lessons they’d learned.

Overwhelmingly, the focus wasn’t on what they did, but what they didn’t do.

Of a thousand people in the later stages of life, what dominated their advice on the lessons of life was regret.

One man in his late eighties was asked:
“If you could come back and live the life of anyone, who would you want to come back as?”

His answer: Continue reading
