8 Secrets To Living Life Truly Present

Rob B. Lowe is an Australian safety professional and life coach who offers tips and advice through his Maximum Life Club. According to Lowe many of us are living “fake present” which is cheating us of our full potential. He told me:

I had created meaningful relationships and had great success. However, on reflection I feel I left a lot on the table when it came to consistently sharing all of my ability when a situation required it. I was caught in a loop.

The erosion of trust only fuelled my need to be “fake present” as I did not trust people with the real me.
