THE SPAN OF AN INSTANT
“Life’s most powerful and intriguing paradox is that we live our entire lives in the span of an instant, yet a lifetime is not enough time to do it all”. William Garcia
A MATTER OF TIME
“Long-term goals are what I consider check-in luggage and they can seem monumental if we lose sight of the “Now.” Carry-ons are things I need to do and can do now during my pursuit of long-term goals. Then it is only a matter of Time before I arrive at my destination and actually live my dream, as the Future becomes my Present Living Reality, as I continue to live my entire Life, “Now”. William Garcia
ONE DAY LESS FOREVER
“Tomorrow is likely going to be here whether we “Do” or not “Do.” What we don’t do today leaves us one day less to do it, and that’s one day less forever”. William Garcia
Going in the right direction is more important than your perception of the speed toward that direction.The reality is that you cannot live faster than the speed of Now. Be patient. William Garcia

EXPERIENCE AND EXPERIMENT
“Life is a “Present Tense” experience and the future is just a Thought experiment”. William Garcia
THE WILL TO CHOOSE
“It is not necessarily that there are no choices or that we ran out of choices. Instead, it may be that we ran out of ideas in the stress of the moment. On the other hand, it may simply be that we lose the Will, the will to choose another course of action, another way to think; another way to live”. William Garcia
AN UNFINISHED MANUSCRIPT
“Any one Life is filled with at least a million stories contained in an unfinished manuscript encompassing the total sum of knowledge and experiences lived up until this Instant”.
A GOOD DAY
"When we live with the daily expectation that something good is going to happen, and nothing bad happened that day, it was a good day. If something good happened, it was a great day. The reality is that most of our days are good days”. William Gar cia
WE'RE BORN IN IT
“Our lives are spent as the sands in the hourglass of our lives trickle through with the passage of Time. There are no refunds or discounts. You can’t get yesterday back and you can’t get extra Time today. Paradoxically, we don’t get Time; we’re born in it”. William Garcia
THIS TO MAY BE REGRETTABLE
“Don’t get used to grieving.” I say this because you can, and because this to may be regrettable. It could cause those who love you and have moved beyond grieving the same loss, to now suffer that you haven’t”. William Garcia
IN THE INSTANCE OF YOUR ENTIRE LIFE
“Thinking positive is “Being” positive in the Present Tense and in the instance of your entire life”. William Garcia
“Being mindful in the Moment amidst the constant distractions is indeed very difficult. Still, is the best mode to “Be” in during our journey through Life. Keep practicing”. William Garcia
"Nothing" is the unthinkable, and to think of "Nothing" is impossible.Because, to simply contemplate "Nothing" is in fact "Something". Perhaps, the closest thing to "Nothing" is Death; Something we know nothing about. William Garcia
YOU'RE ALREADY THE BEST
To reason that each one of us is unique, is to reason that each one of us now possess a gift or a talent. However, this gift or talent is exclusively reserved for those who seek it out. Some experience Success this way.Still, not everyone believe they now possess a gift or talent and so have no reason to seek. It's OK though, if you keep in mind and believe that there is not, there never was and there never will be anyone better than you, at "Being" You. You're already the best. William Garcia
Our entire lives are cloaked in the Moment; in the Now. Consequently, we live our entire lives in our own individual Bubble of Time that eventually burst when we run out of Life. William Garcia
We enter into the world through a gate in Time and we live until we run out of Life exiting through another gate into the other side of Time. Where that gate leads to may very well depend upon what you really believe. What do you believe?William Garcia
DO IT NOW
Wishing against the present reality of a negative experience, temporarily paralyzes the mind, impedes the occurrence of positive thoughts and allows for the onset of stress. Never wish "it" didn't happen. Instead, do something about it, Now.
Death is the eternal awakening on the other side of Time in heaven, or hell. Get right with God now.
Words are like keys. We use them alone, in combination or sequence to open minds so as to capture the imagination of those we try to persuade. Choose your words wisely. Speak the truth. William Garcia
LESS THAN A MILE
Once you have made the first step into the Mile toward your goal, you will always have less than a mile to go. Don't stop now. William Garcia
Nikke says, "Just do it". I say, "Just do it now".
Positive thinking is a mind-style that can lead to a great life-style. So, embrace the present with positive expectation of a great future. File the past.
Be persistent, yet be patient, for patience is what flavors the experience of Success and give taste to the achievement of your goal.William Garcia

SPEED OF NOW.
"Life happens at the speed of Now. Slow down or you will miss it". William Garcia
TO BE AND TO DO
“Not knowing the future is simply being human. It is still OK to imagine what’s around the corner, the boogieman under the bed, or to dream beautiful dreams even if they don’t come true. You will always have “Now” to “Be” as you are and to “Do” as you will”. William Garcia
"You will ALWAYS be dead longer than you were alive regardless how old you were when you died. Enjoy your Life now. It only lasts an Instant"..William Garcia
A DOING PROPOSITION
“It is important that our focus be on “Being” aware that living is a “doing” proposition fueled by emotions and steered by our thoughts” William Garcia.
THE GREAT AWAKENING
“In a world that seems to exist more and more in cyberspace, a realm where being human is not applicable, “Being” human may be the great awakening we all need on this side of Time”.
ALWAYS NEVER THE SAME PERSON
“After having achieved our goals, we will not be the same person who had some years’ prior, set out to attain them; we will always never be the same twice”. William Garcia
LAST DRINK OF LIFE
“As they say, “Savor the moment,” it may be your last drink of Life”. William Garcia
ONLY YOU CAN EXPERIENCE
“Life and “Being” alive are mostly sensational and emotional experiences that can only have meaning in the Now, meaning only you can experience”.
"An excuse by nature is weak. Do not assign it any strength. Because when you do, you become weak." William Garcia
Trust God, and as you do your best, believe in yourself, be patient and Trust your destiny.
“At any given “Now,” we are all perfect and timely candidates for Death and, as far as Death is concerned, we are all exactly the same and precise age: “Now-Old". William Garcia
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY SPENDER
“Time is an equal opportunity spender, and at a time unbeknownst to us, we’re spent into “Nothingness” or into “Something” we know nothing about”. William Garcia

“Keep in mind that Life is about people being here for one another and that Love, Compassion, Forgiveness and Happiness are not devices of Modernity. These are attributes of our own natural Humanness”. William Garcia
“Time” is a nonstop train we board as we are born, and we ride until we run out of Life. This is when we disembark into the other side of Time and literally disappear into the Past”. William Garcia
LIVING IN CONSTANT INSTANCES
“When “Spermo” met “Eggly” in my mother’s womb, conception occurred in an instant, and I’ve been living in constant instances ever since—so have you. I have always lived and continue to live “Now,” so do you”. William Garcia
“Numbers only give us the illusion that we are in control, and my concern is about the focus we place on Time as it relates to “Being.” If we agree that Life is a finite experience, we must also agree that Time is not”. William Garcia
THE BEST THOUGHTS
“Being” as you are in the Now, makes it easier for you to pay attention to what it is you’re experiencing. This moment of Mindfulness may be all the Time you need for the best thoughts to occur, allowing for a better, or at least a different course of action”. William Garcia
ONLY ONE TIME
“The fact is that nothing happens without Now. Nothing happens without Time and there is one and only one Time … “Now”. William Garcia
OUR OWN BUBBLE OF TIME
“Each one of us live in our own individual bubble of Time as it elapses and eventually bursts when we run out of Life”. William Garcia
WHEN WE RECIPROCATE
“Love is more about “Doing”, and the feeling we expereince when someone loves us, follows the very act of Love. When we reciprocate, there is Love for two. There is “Being” in Love”. William Garcia
“Too many of us take Tomorrow for granted, not realizing there is no guarantee that the sun again will rise, or that we may awake from sleep.”
I am mindful there is no one who can mess with my head better than I can. Then again, that I am mindful of this, tells me that I can clean up the mess when I make it. I just have to make up my Mind. William Garcia
BEING HUMAN FOR GOODNESS SAKE
“Missed moments are lost forever and this loss is a very high price to pay for living past each other without loving and caring, or just being human for goodness sake”. William Garcia
“Being” is the Master key. “Doing” is ultimately the “unlocking” of the life I choose to live”. William Garcia
NO ONE IS
“It is impossible to be the same “You” twice. When you think about it, no one “Is,” we are all continuously “Becoming” who we are to “Be” until a Time comes when we simply run out of Life”.
"Not because something is now unknowable makes it "Nothing". It is simply something yet to be discovered; yet to be known; yet to be revealed in the continuum of Time. The only exception is the Afterlife". William Garcia
To make dreams come true, you must first wake up, get out of bed and actually "do" something about your future. Don't sleep your life away.

“Keep in mind that just being alive is the ultimate positive state on this side of the most powerful element that is, Time”. William Garcia
YOUR FRONT DOOR
“It is one thing to know that the Devil is out there somewhere. It is quite another for him to knock on your front door and ask for you by name. Be Empathetic”. William Garcia
Nothing lasts forever, and forever long it lasts, be careful what you take for granted. William Garcia
“Success is a series of emotional experiences lived while in pursuit of a worthy goal. The achievement of that goal is the embodiment of your Success”.William Garcia
“To reason that each of us is unique is to reason that each of us now possess at least one gift or talent. However, the discovery of that gift or talent is exclusively reserved for those who purposefully seek it out; some find Success this way. Still, not everyone believes they possess a gift or talent and so do not have reason search. Regardless, always try to be mindful that there is not, there never was, and there never will be anyone better than you, at being “You”; you’re already the best. Of course, we should always continue to strive to be better”.
Attaining many things in Life is much easier than making the commitment to actually attain them. Too often, a lack of commitment is the reason for failure. Commit to achieving something meaningful.
If it ain't broke, don't break it . Leave it alone.
Think of failure as nothing more than a temporary experience.It is not a permanent condition or a terminal disease. Experience it, and then let it go. Survive it, and try again. Nothing scares away failure more than another Try. Nothing is more attractive to Success, than courage; The courage to try again.William Garcia
The quality of the life you now live as you pursue your goal should nonetheless be meaningful and satisfying. Think about it this way. The Thrill lives in the Hunt, but dies with the Kill. The Thrill is in making the most of your life now. The Hunt is the experience of pursuing a worthy goal, and the Kill is the goal achieved and the reset of a new one.
ON YOUR WAY
As you walk through life and toward your goal, keep your eyes on the next step you take. You don't want to step into something unplanned. "Be"in the moment and focus. William Garcia
PRESENT POSITIVE TENSE
Always try to live in the Present Positive Tense. Think Now. Think positive. William Garcia
Too many take tomorrow for granted, not realizing that there is no guarantee, that the Sun again will rise or that we may awake from sleep. Make the most of your day today, now that you are awake.

Life should be a continuous sharing of human emotions.It's OK to like Things. Don't ever love them. It's OK to love one another; Always do.
A plan, like a map, is an instrument used to get you from where you are now, to where you would like to be some Now into the future. Without one, only God knows where you will end up. With one, you improve your prospect for achievement. Commit to your plan. William Garcia
In life you will not always get what you want how ever hard you've worked. But you have life now with what you have. Make the most of it. William Garcia
It is really important to now love those you love and to love them often and very much.Why put it off another day. The idea of Tomorrow, and it is just an idea, is only an expectation of an imaginary Time to come. Now is as real as it gets. Now is the only Time you can love. William Garcia

A GOOD LIFE

The Time is, Now O' Clock.
Original Motivational and Inspirational Quotes by,William Garcia.
SPREADING A CONTAGIOUS EASE
“Doing anything positive for someone else, or for ourselves, makes a positive difference all around. It can be like spreading a contagious “Ease”; a positive act that does not have to be anything spectacular. It could be simply to say “I love you” or “I’m here for you if you need to talk.” It could be the offer to bring someone a drink of water, a chair to sit on, or a pillow to lie on”. William Garcia
A STREAM OF INSTANCES
