What You Focus On; You Will Create
Have you ever noticed that what you are always focused on is what creates in your life? Sometimes it is easier to notice it in someone else's life, as it is always harder to see our own stuff.
Through the years I have watched people in my life and have come to the conclusion that what we focus on, we create. Sometimes that focus is positive, but many times it is not.
For instance; if you are always worrying, you will generally have more stuff come into your life to be worried about. I know several individuals that do just that. They worry about this or that and always seem to have more to worry about. It becomes their reality and their focus.
The same thing happens to people I know that are always fearful. They are afraid something bad will happen to them, or fearful that things will go wrong. Sure enough bad things happen and go wrong most of the time.
If you are focused on failure, you can bet that you will fail at what ever it is you are attempting to do. If you are focused on success however you will most likely be successful at your endeavor.
I know this sounds simple, but it is a reality that our focus is what will be our creation. Athletes for instance focus much of them selves into their sport and training. Because of this they become better athletes. Successful business peoples focus much of their time doing their business and that is why they become successful.
If you are focused on partying or playing most of the time, that is where you will be successful. You will not be successful at your school work, job, or other interests if your focus is just on having fun.
If you want to be successful at something, then that is where you focus should be. If you want to get into a great university, then your focus should be on your school work. If you want to have a healthy body then your focus should be on choosing a healthy lifestyle. If you want to be successful at anything....that is where your focus should be.
I hear so many people say they want something to happen in their life, but they don't put any focus towards it except to say that that is what they want. Its Never going to happen without the focus towards it.
If you want to be good at anything, or successful at anything, you better be willing to focus on it and act on it. Wishing and wanting something to happen will not get you the results you are looking for.
Focus on feeling good. Focus on the things you want in your life. Focus on joy, happiness, success, abundance, and all of the positive things that you want to be your reality. Let go of the thoughts of worry, fear, lack, envy, or any negative thoughts that will hold you back.
When you focus on the positive, you will feel better. When you feel better, you are happier. When you are happier, life is good!
So be conscious of what it is you are focusing on. Make sure it is what you want in your life, because you will get it either way!
