Inspiring Quotes about Living in the Moment

I heard someone say that if one wants to be happy they should live in the moment.  That got me thinking about how I could possibly do that; so I did some research and collected some enlightening quotes that can be life changing.

"Living in the moment is all about living like there's no tomorrow. To do this, you must realize beauty in every moment, and in everyday activities. It’s a conscious act that requires participation, not just observation, but the reward is a richer, fuller life." wikihow.com

" No matter what you're doing, notice the moments that surround you... Realizing that whether these things are great or small, you are part of that singular moment when all these things come together. When you realize you are a part of every moment that you've lived through, you'll be almost there."  wikihow.com
"Even if you're just walking, or wiping the counter, or shuffling cards—how does it feel? There's probably some kind of commentary spinning through your mind, and it probably has to do with something other than what you're doing. Let those thoughts go and focus on what is (not what was, or what could be)." wikihow.com

"Just breathe. When the moment begins to escape you, as it will certainly try to do, breathe. Take a very deep breath, through your nose, as deep as you can. Listen to the air moving into your body, and feel your lungs swell. Breathe out slowly through your mouth, letting the air escape on its own." wikihow.com

"You can set the tone of appreciation and awareness for the next 24 hours by simply waking up and smiling...Visualize all the good things that are going to happen to you today." wikihow.com

"...keep alert in every moment of your day for some way in which you can make the world a better place. Even the smallest thing, like complimenting someone, can bring joy. It's the most spontaneous and unexpected acts of kindness that produce the greatest impact, and you can't be sensitive to those kinds of opportunities unless you're living in the moment. " wikihow.com

"Don't zone out; zone in. Do things that are active, and that encourage you to look around and engage the world in that moment. Gardening, playing a game, knitting, and playing an instrument are all activities that lend themselves to mindfulness." wikihow.com

"When you find yourself wishing for something you don't have, or wishing your life would be different, start your quest for your wish by being thankful for what is already in your life. This will bring you back to the present moment." wikihow.com

Passive Income Quotes from Steve Pavlina

“At any time you’re free to use active income, passive income, or hybrid strategies — or any combo of these you wish. You don’t have to quit your active income job to set up streams of passive income.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

“Because of my passive income streams, I can afford to be really lazy if I wanted to. I could sit around doing nothing for weeks on end, and my bills would still be covered…InI want to spend my life growing, creating, and sharing. I want to keep adding something of value to the substance of the universe. Whenever I keep doing that, regardless of how much money I’m making, I feel happy and fulfilled.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

“When I was broke and deep in debt and about to declare bankruptcy, I asked myself what I’d want to do with my life if I knew for certain that I’d always be broke….This shift in mindset allowed me to increase my happiness and fulfillment, not to mention turning around my financial life, in less than a year.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

“Since I was already broke, I decided to focus on doing what I enjoyed, expressing my creativity, and making a contribution without worrying about how much I’d earn. Ironically, that’s exactly the kind of attitude that can generate abundant income.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

“I personally feel that the #1 benefit of having my expenses covered by passive income is that I get to keep doing a lot more of the kind of work I enjoy. I also get to work the way I want to work — where I want, when I want, how I want, and with whom I want.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

“…if you’re currently using feeble excuses like the lack of money, lack of time, or the obligations of your day job to distract you from a bigger vision — even as you somehow still have time for Facebook, texting, email, reading blogs, watching TV, etc. — then I’d bet that you’re not going to succeed in creating much passive income; you’re the type who will come up with an excuse to quit, and even reading this series is just another distraction for you.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

“If your motivation for passive income is escape, you’ll most likely fail. Passive income is fuel to expand what you’re already doing. Trying to add fuel to what you don’t want is a recipe for self-sabotage. You will give up before you get very far.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

“My advice would be to first transition to active income sources where you can do work you enjoy. Then you can build upon that with passive income to serve even more people and extend the value you’re able to provide.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

“Generally speaking, the way to create streams of passive income is to deliver your value to multiple customers simultaneously and to get paid multiple times.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

“Passive income earners are constantly looking for ways to put more value into the hands of more people. They want to be as generous as possible. They love to share. And so society rewards them with streams of passive income, so they get paid even when they aren’t working.” Steve Pavlina Quotes- Passive Income

Steve Pavlina Quotes about Money

I found Steve Pavlina’s articles to be outstanding in helping anyone interested in personal development and improving their money situation. The following are a list of enlightening and motivational quotes that have helped me to put my financial situation into perspective.  

“The best place to invest your money is in yourself. The rate of return from investing in your own knowledge and skills will be much higher than anything you’ll see from stocks, real estate, or other investments.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“…invest 3% of your income on your own personal development.  You can use this budget to invest in improving yourself any way you like. So that includes not just knowledge, but also equipment and services — anything that helps you grow and improve.”  Steve Pavlina Quotes

“I got screwed over in some bad business deals, but as long as I focused on those past problems, I couldn’t move forward. I had to let all of that go and forgive everyone and everything first.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“You must assume 100% responsibility for your financial life.  If you’re going to improve your situation, you have to put the full burden of doing so squarely on your own shoulders. First and foremost, you must hold yourself responsible.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“Responsibility isn’t about blaming yourself or looking to the past. It’s about taking control over your situation. It’s about realizing that you always possess response-ability — the ability to choose your response. It’s about accepting the truth that if anything is going to change, your will must be the force that changes it.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“I don’t care if you’re a housewife who relies on your husband for 100% of your family’s income. If you want to change your financial situation, then the responsibility for making it happen is 100% your own… not your husband’s. You aren’t some weak and powerless being. You’re a creative person.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“Some people really go nuts here. They buy the cheapest items they can find, and everything breaks. Going too cheap often ends up being more expensive in the long run….Make reasonable cuts in your expenses, but don’t go crazy. If you want things to improve, you’ll be devoting most of your time and energy to the income side.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“…make friends with people who have a positive financial outlook. It doesn’t matter how much they’re earning right now. It could be 10x more or less than you. Look for people who assume 100% responsibility for their finances — people who don’t blame others for their setbacks. Such people make good long-term friends because they won’t freak out every time you boost your income.” Steve Pavlina

“If you want more money, you can create more value and/or deliver your value to more people.  This is the approach that most employees use. They don’t build anything that they retain ownership of. Instead, they merely trade hours for dollars, so someone else ends up owning what they helped to build – and thereby reaps all the long-term benefits of ownership.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“If you can provide passive value, you can generate passive income.  Focus on creating and delivering passive value first. Create something, put it into a permanent form, and get it into people’s hands. Start small. Write an article. Write a recipe. Compose a song. Then share it as widely as you can. Then repeat over and over.” Steve Pavlina Quotes
