Creating a Life You Can Love Right Now

We often have the idea that we have to accomplish or acquire things before having a life we love. Actually, the opposite is true. When you learn to love your life right now, you’ll more easily be able to accomplish what you want.


It sounds backward, doesn’t it? 


What I’ve discovered is that the people that thrive in my programs are the ones that focus on making their present moment the best that it can possibly be. 


NLP teaches that a key component to living a happy life is managing your moment-to-moment experience. You might not have what you want yet or be where you want to be right now, but by managing how you feel, you can train your brain to support you in achieving those things you desire.


Managing your moment-to-moment experience is the most effortless way I know of to get from where you are to where you want to be.


Here are five tips to support you in doing just that.


  • Write about what you want using positive language (leave out the things you want to “not happen”). Write in as much detail as you want. Revise it. Let it rest a few days, and then revisit it. Then revise some more. Play with those dreams and desires and have fun with the process. 
  • Look for ways to cultivate self-love and self-care. This requires awareness of how you’re feeling in the moment. When you feel down or off, take the time to explore where the negativity is coming from, address it, and support yourself in feeling better.
  • Explore ways to make your present moment more enjoyable and fulfilling. Listen to a feel-good audio, take deep breaths, sit in gratitude or make a thankful list. And when something good happens, savor that moment so that the positive feelings will last as long as possible.
  • Decide on what you want to achieve long-term. If you’re not sure about the specifics, just focus on the big picture and the essence of what you want to feel.
  • Honor yourself by taking action. No need to try to tackle everything at once. Just consistently give a bit of time each day to take another step toward your goals. 


Creating a life you love asks of you that you make today, this moment, one that feels alive, invigorating, and nourishes and empowers you. It’s about the now — not someday. You can’t resent the now and create a beautiful future.
