Right or Wrong? or developing focus.

Last Update: September 23, 2015

I was walking my dog this morning reviewing a situation in my life that wasn't exactly going the way I wanted it and I thought, "What have I done wrong?" "What did I do to deserve this?" of course no answer forth came but a perspective did.

What if it didn't matter what I did "wrong"?

What if what mattered, was what I focused on now?

You know the old saying "Let bygones be bygones". Well there may be more truth in that than I gave it credit for.

If I spend time focusing on what went wrong, then I am giving more fuel, more focus, more energy & more time on the wrong action and results.

What if I took that same fuel, focus, energy and time and directed it toward the results that I do want? That feels so much better! I don't feel like a failure because I did something "wrong".

My tendency in the past has been to try to figure things out. From now on, bygones are bygones and I'm going to use these experience as resolve to stay focused on what I do want.

Hey dust it off and move forward. Good attitude for success. Why let an unimportant event that could happen to anybody hold you back.
