Welcome to season 2…, Mindful Quotes, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. A series of my own fresh and original inspirational quotes…. Of course, we can all benefit from being inspired…, and many of us have our favorite quote. 

Some of you may be searching for yours…. That one quote that inspires you to be a better, healthier, and happier You…. Of course, Success as well…, embodies these attributes. 

There is a quote here for almost everyone. Listen for yours.

Hello. I am William Garcia, Philosopher, author of the book titled, Now O’ Clock. Being Mindful, it Always is, and…, your host.

Being a Mindfulness practitioner…, and before I open with the quote of this day, I invite you to join me in a mindfulness affirmation… Ready…. First…, take a deep breath with me…. That felt good, right? Now…, repeat after me…, It is Now O’ Clock…. I am… I am here … I am here now… I am open to be inspired.  

Now…, let’s take another deep breath.

Of course…, you can affirm your mindfulness and do the breathing exercise on your own or with someone else, and I strongly recommend you do. Make it at least a twice daily routine. But if you also want to do it with me…, let’s do it.

 I believe this mindfulness affirmation will help tune your sense of presence…, your mindful sense of presence in the only occasion that matters in your life…Now.

It is Now O’ Clock…, time for the quote of this day.

What would a life, trying to make the best of everything, be like for you?

Today’s quote is titled: ON THE SIDE OF ANY ROAD
Better a Life on a journey experiencing Success with anxious anticipation, than a Life parked on the side of any road, unquote.

It is one thing to be, as they say, a stick in the mud. It is quite another to stick yourself in the mud. 

Listen, I realize that sometimes in life we get knocked off the track of something we are trying to accomplish, and that’s life, right? But we get up and go. We dust our minds off and persevere. We keep going. At the least it is what we should do to stay on our path. It is what we should do if we want to experience success.

And yes, some life challenges are more difficult than others, and I understand. But there is a reason you are here now. You have been faced with obstacles all along and have overcome them. It is all part of the give and take rhythm of life. It is all part of your journey. A journey that may not feel successful even if it is.

 If this, is you, I remind you what success really is. It is a series of emotional experiences lived while in the pursuit of your goal. The achievement of that goal is the embodiment of your success. 

Having faced life challenges, it was being successful that gave you the power to overcome them. If it was a goal, success is what gave you the power to achieve. It was you having made up your mind to press on; to succeed; to overcome; to achieve.

 Also remember, the word journey is about traveling, whether mentally, spiritually, or physically. It is about moving on, moving forward because you can, and because want to. It is not sticking yourself in the mud and staying there. It is not parking yourself on the side of any road.

Tune in next time for the quote of the day…. It may be that one quote you are searching for…. That quote that ignites your passion and gears you up for achievement…, or…, it may be the quote that…, as you journey through life…, illuminates your path…, brings you peace…, love…, and happiness. Share what you find here with someone else. It may be a quote…, that for them…, may set them…, or keep them on a path to a better life.
