Woody Allen said “showing up is 80% of the battle” or others have state Showing up is half the battle. Now, what does that mean, showing up is half the battle? Because for years I showed up, I was there usually on time and ready to do as told. Now in retrospect, I realize I was only there to be present in the bodily form. I was not truly committed to being there fully present.

2. Mentally– be aware of your mindset, what mood are you in? what are your predominant thoughts? Are you pre-occupied with dinner plans or a pending conversation with your spouse?
