Seizing The Moment

Carpe diem. Seize the day. These words are easy to say, but how do you do it? You may get overwhelmed with the idea of seizing the day if you think it requires grand gestures or huge acts of service (that you don’t have the time, energy or money for!)

But thankfully that’s not the case. Small actions can make a tremendous impact in your life and the lives of those around you.

In this episode, mindset and business coach Kevin Breeding and I discuss why the little things are a big deal, the importance of authenticity, and why you should take risks in life.

Show Highlights Include:

  • The misguided ideas about seizing the moment cause you to miss out on what’s most important ([2:07])
  • How to “seize the moment” to create lasting family relationships ([2:25])
  • Why “tiptoeing” through life only achieves death ([4:28])
  • Why overlooking the little things drains your life of meaning and impact ([6:30])
  • How you can meaningfully connect with your loved ones, even if you’re halfway across the world ([7:04])
