Where is your Focus?
What are you focusing on in your life? What are you focusing on in this minute? By focusing our attention on what we are looking for in our life instead of the problems or troubles we have we can truly change our life for the better. The truth is whatever we focus on God/universe brings more of that item into our lives. So many of us are overwhelmed in our lives that we focus only on how busy we are and not on anything to move our life forward. By doing this we bring more busyness into our lives. Again, what we focus on comes back to us.
I was just reading a post from Dr. Wayne Dyer where he said that he believed the most important 5 minutes of the day are the minutes right before we go to sleep. If we can clear our mind and focus on what we want, even if it’s only for tomorrow, we give ourselves the opportunity to see those things come to fruition through our dreams and sleep. My friend Deepak Chopra always taught that the first few minutes of the day are the most important, that if you stayed in bed and began with being grateful for having another day and then ask for what you want from God/universe in that day. To me it doesn’t matter which method works best in your life. I actually believe in doing both…what have you got to lose? The point here is the focus and thoughts that you’re putting out into the universe. The only way to truly change your life is to change your focus. I know it sounds easy and it’s hard to believe that it works but with diligence and continued practice you will see a shift in your life.
We as human beings are all connected and our minds create more than we can ever imagine. Don’t fall into the trap of misery loves company; it’s easy to complain, it easy to find fault but by doing so your focus is on the negative rather than the positive. Think of a day where it seemed like nothing was going right, we’ve all had those days, try and remember how many times in that day you said to yourself “What else is going to go wrong today?” and then think about how many things continued to go wrong that day. Probably many and every time you probably said “what else can go wrong today?” What I propose is changing your focus from what’s going wrong to what you’re grateful for or to what you’re looking forward to later today.
We all have our moments when we feel out of control but only by letting go and changing our focus can we see our life change around us. You are amazing and you can create the world you want to see just by changing your focus….believe it, know it & Live it!
Till next time,
