If you have been enthusiastic people, you have probably noticed how they seem to have this vibrant energy that pulls others around them. Many of them are driven and passionate. They are influencers in their own right. They seem have an uncanny ability to seize every opportunity that comes their way. They may appear like they have a perfect life, but nothing can be farther from the truth. They have their share of challenges like everyone else. But one of the things that make them stand out is their ability to grab life by the horns and make the most of every moment. Cliché as it may sound, seize the day is one sage advice that can make way for a more fulfilling life. And here are some ideas on how to get the best out of it.
Cultivate a “doer” mindset
There is a time to think and a time to act. Make sure that you do not spend more time doing the former. Take action despite the risks. There are only two things that can happen if you do things. You either succeed or fail and learn important lessons from it. Either way, you come out as a winner. It is much better than playing it safe by doing nothing. You may avoid a lot of mistakes, but you miss out on the positive things that could happen. Even the bad can leave you with some good lessons.
Doing does not have to be something big. It could be as simple as finally taking up a new hobby. Or you can use the time to organize your home or office, declutter, and basically do things that tend to get put on the backseat because of a busy schedule.
Explore and stay curious
A healthy dose of curiosity is good for you. It prompts you to explore and learn new things. If you can, travel to a place you have never been to at least once or twice a year. It does not have to be somewhere far or exotic. It could be just a trip to the next town or city. Or you can rediscover your own city. See things from a tourist’s perspective. You might be surprised how many interesting discoveries you can have doing this.
Another way to seize the moment is to explore the things that you have not done. Go for a thrilling ride at an amusement park if you have not done it before. Play a sport. Train for a marathon. Join book clubs or other interest-based organizations. …
