16 You won't be truly happy until you say F*** it to THIS
Show Notes

I was riding my Peloton this morning, and all of a sudden it hit me…

If I ever want to live the life of my dreams, I have to say F*** it to this.

You do too.

What do we need to say F*** it to?

Dreaming, visualizing, and fantasizing about your future self.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for having big dreams and ambitious goals and putting a plan into action to accomplish them. What I’m not for is consuming all our time and energy with these things at the expense of being in relationship with our present moment experience.

Life is lived in THIS moment.

Here. Now.

And if you’re always dreaming about what you’ll experience in the future,  you gloss over what you’re experiencing now. And you’ll never experience the happiness, joy and contentment you dream about.

Saying F*** it to living in the future is the missing piece to lasting happiness. 

When you stay present, you create space for joy.

This episode is personal, it’s important, and actionable, and most of all – it’s packed with techniques you can start using right now.

I hope this episode shifts your perspective in the way that it did mine, and makes you understand yourself a little bit better.
