Doing and being are not the same.

Doing is about the actions you take and the decisions you make: your behaviour.

It focuses on the past, future, and the present moment.

Being, on the other hand, is the foundation of all you’re doing: your personality, habits, mental models, and life perspectives.

It’s about this moment, right now.

Life has nothing to do with what you’re doing and everything to do with what you’re being.

The magic happens when you get to the root of what you really want to be.

And stop ignoring this inner voice that secretly knows what truly excites you.

While fully appreciating that, this moment is all we have.

What do you choose to be?

Live the reality you wish to experience. Right this moment.
