One trick I recently learned from Glenn Morshower (actor in over 40 movies) to help you cherish your life in this moment:
Wish that you were doing exactly what you are doing right now. Wish that you were exactly where you are right now.
How often to you catch yourself saying something along the lines of “I wish I were sitting under a palm tree sipping from a coconut right now…”
But rather than wishing you were somewhere else doing something else, try saying to yourself that you wish you were doing what you are doing, and that you were exactly where you are. For example, I really did just say “I wish I were in my home right now using the magical technology of the internet to share my latest discovery with the world…” As I say those words, a feeling of real joy for this moment floods into my soul and I immediately appreciate my life as it is right now.
Last night I had a four hour drive. I generally do not particularly appreciate driving, but last night I said several times that “I wish I had four hours to myself to drive through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. I wish I were driving a comfortable car for four hours on well-kept roads in a free country…” I loved that drive. I was able to appreciate it throughout the entire four hours.
Some of you are thinking “that seems really weird.” If you are thinking it is weird advice, then the advice is specifically for you. Try it right now. Those of you who are thinking that it makes perfect sense and are going to start using it regularly probably don’t need this tool as much.
This is a picture of Glenn and me. Do you recognize him? He is in two blockbuster movies now (Transformers 3 and X-Men) and is a master of the law of attraction
