You have ambitions in life, and to accomplish those ambitions, you do hell lot of things; you make a never ending to-do-list, wait for the perfect circumstances to arrive and you keep on dreaming about it every single day.

But the harsh truth is, you are just dreaming about it, not doing anything to make it happen.

Sorry to say, in reality, you are pushing them farther. There are no perfect circumstances, you cannot wait for all the lights to be green to drive your car away.

You just have to act in the present, ACT RIGHT NOW or get ready to live the same ordinary life that you have been living.

To give you a wake up call and to reveal how valuable the time is and how waiting for anything is never the solution, I’ve collected the 20 inspiring live now quotes which remind you to live in the present.
