If these sound familiar, you are an ambitious but chronic overthinker (like I was all my life):

  • You are constantly reassuring yourself that “everything is ok” but secretly worry that your life is falling apart
  • You try to consciously analyze and interpret every situation
  • You are planning for every single contingency multiple times but it does not help
  • You have past regrets and low self-confidence that both torture you endlessly
  • You tend to drift off to wanderland many times, not being here

Despite noble intentions, there are drawbacks (as you probably know):

  • You are removing yourself from the present moment and are not fully aware of your current options
  • You expel precious energy while not getting further ahead
  • It is straining your temple and face overall
  • You are overreacting to noise and forgetting the signal

Operations of thought are like cavalry charges in a battle –they are strictly limited in number, they require fresh horses, and must only be made at decisive moments. ” (Alfred North Whitehead)

If you become a total life enjoyer today, you will experience the following:

  • No more excessive self-talk
  • Everything becomes more colorful, beautiful, and awe-inspiring
  • A feeling of accomplishment and presence every second
  • Pure happiness and peace, without guilt
  • Impressive things are done every day because you are hardly doing anything
  • A laugh every time something bad happens since you will be better for it
  • No more worry since you can always make the best choice right now

Another way to put this:

Imagine you have got everything you wanted and could ever wish for. What would your days feel like?

That feeling is what you get every second from practicing total living and being a total life enjoyer today!
