Change Your Focus – Change Your Life
“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it”
I have learned that one of the things that stop people from achieving great success is their focus. It is important that you start realizing this true and immediately start changing your focus. Whenever we face problems, we spend more time in worry and stress. We end up meditating on the problem so much that we forget to work on a solution. Author of Secrets of a Millionaire Mind, T. HarveEker says in his book said, “Poor people will do almost anything to avoid problems. They see a challenge and they run…the secret to success is not to try to avoid or get rid of or shrink from your problems; the secret is to grow yourself so that you are bigger than your problems.” This describes most people. They focus on the size of the problem than they do on the size of their ability to solve the problem. The problem only needs a solution, nothing more. Once you have a problem all you need to do is focus on the solution; that`s all you have to do.
Sometimes you need to stop and refocus. What are you focusing on most of the times? Are you focusing on poverty, lack, your mountain of debts, fears and negative images? Is what you are currently focusing on, helping you in some kind of way? What you need to do is stop focusing on things that are not helping you to grow.
The things you focus on have the power to build and to destroy your life. Why not start changing your focus to more positive things in life. Focus on prosperity and you will attract prosperity into your life. Focus on poverty and that is exactly what you will attract. You attract what you focus on most of the time. The law of attraction clearly states that like attracts like, and when you focus on the negative, you attract the negative into your life. Your thoughts determine your focus, what you think about, and focus on, you will attract. Your thoughts become things; and so does your focus. The images you hold in your mind become a reality in your life.
The lesson I`ve learned from observation is that when someone is accused of something they didn’t do, they end up doing the thing they are accused of doing. Sometimes, especially in relationships it is caused by lack of trust among two partners. If you can change your focus and acknowledge the positive side of your companion, you will always appreciate them more.
The things you focus on, determine what you find in life. I want you to change your focus and stop complaining about life being unfair. Life is always fair; we are the ones who are unfair to life. Life gives us plenty of opportunities daily but we tend to focus more on obstacles and that is how we got where we are today. We are always focusing on what we lack, on what we can`t afford and on what other people have accomplished. Instead of focusing on how we can afford what we want.
Sometimes we need to shift our focus from lack to abundance. If we could start realizing that in life there`s plenty to go around. And those who think they lack can have everything and anything they desire, only if they put their focus in the right places. Focus on the truth that if someone can fulfill their wildest dreams, then nothing can stop you from fulfilling yours. It is so important that you understand the power of focus, because it is what will take you from zero to hero, when you focus on the right things, you`ll keep growing and growing. You will become unstoppable. The authors of The Power of Focus, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Les Hewitt say, “The No 1 reason that stops people from getting what they want is lack of focus. People, who focus on what they want, prosper and those who don’t, struggle.”
