What are you focusing on?
I’d like to expand on this well-known quote, for I think many people do not fully get what it means, and some may not have seen or heard of it before.
I have noticed many negative comments in people’s blogs and posts about their lack of success, their ‘failures’, etc. some people have worked hard with little progress as yet, some are impatient and expecting too much in a short time.
To these people I want to say, that if you continue to focus on your disappointments and failures, you will attract more of them. Seriously, is that what you want?
Similarly, if you focus on your successes, being grateful and appreciative of what you have achieved, you will attract more success. Isn’t that preferable? (This is the same concept as 'Counting your Blessings.)
Although you may not realize it, you can control your mind. You have a choice as to which aspects of your life you focus on. You can choose your attitude towards the events in your life (see my previous blog if interested - https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/animate/blog/choose-an-attitude ).
Just know that you can’t live a Positive Life with a Negative Mind.
Here is a good example of ‘focus’ ….. You may have heard this statement many times before (usually said very cynically and knowingly) – “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”
What does that mean? Are the rich stealing from the poor, are the rich corrupt ? Or, could it be perhaps that the rich constantly focus on and manage their wealth, and that the poor constantly focus on and complain about their poverty, and how they can’t make ends meet? Think about it - Where do their predominant thoughts lie – constantly?
The ‘energy that flows’ comes as a result of your focus. If you focus on the negative, you will always be looking for confirmation that you are right (eg. life sucks!), whereas if you focus on the positive, bells will ring, horns toot and doors will spring open for you - you will be alert to opportunities which have been around you all the time, except that you did not see them
May I also suggest that you focus your energy on the new road ahead of you, NOT the old stuff of the past.
