Now is Here

Ric MorganBy Featured Speaker Ric Morgan

It is always Now. Though the future beckons and the past fills up your memories, what you always have, where you always are, is Now. The successes you enjoy are the successes you work to achieve not someday, not once upon a time, but now.

The actions that get taken, and the only ones which have any affect whatsoever, are the actions you take Now.

Though the past may still echo, though the future holds much promise, Now is where you live, Now is the place where you have an influence, Now is the time when you can make things happen.

What are you waiting for? Now is here Now. It is your time to live, to accomplish, to learn, to have fun, to move forward, to laugh, to love, to make a difference? Do it Now and it will get done.

Every opportunity, every possibility that exists, exists Now. Now encompasses a whole universe filled with abundance and energy. You are now. Now is yours. Make it the best it can be.

Why do you want to clog up your life with negativity Now…why fill this time with hate, anger, fear, jealousy, resentment and all the rest, when it is just as easy, if not easier, to live in the four natural states of Being: Joy, Serenity, Peace and Contentment? I don’t want to spend what could be my last moment on this planet involved in negative thoughts, choices and action.

We really do not know how long we have. Things happen momentarily. One second I was a whole person, and within seconds my life changed and I became physically disabled. There was no design, no plan, no intuition. It just happened. The lesson was, and still is, how to handle that change every day. Do I allow it to become the focus of my life and sit and feel sorry for myself, or do I face that challenge and do things for myself that are productive and positive, that may even have a positive impact on the life of someone else, inspire them, and help them to see that all they have is now, and decide how they want to spend it?

What are you going to do about it Now?

I am Ric Morgan, author of The Keys: The Textbook to a Successful Life, nominated for a 2009 Pulitzer Prize and two Nautilus Book Awards. The power-packed, life-changing book is about the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple and Smart) philosophy and talks about three major keys…thought, choice and action…plus a smaller secret key, and a set of lessons that will help you learn how to live a smarter, simpler and saner life. It retails for $15 (plus shipping) on, but you can buy it for $10 (shipping included) at There are several editions available including one in large-print, an e-Book and one called The Keys for Teens. An audio-book edition is coming out in September 2009, and there is a sample on the book’s web page. The short (80 pages) book has been called, by John Fleming of WDRC in Hartford, Connecticut, a condensation of the “Wisdom of the Ages in an easy to read book with a lot of clarity. The amount of wisdom is astonishing.”
