"One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want
is that we never direct our focus;
we never concentrate our power.
Most people dabble their way through life,
never deciding to master anything in particular."
- Anthony Robbins
Focus on what you want - not what you fear.
What you fear and focus on ......you will get more of.
You must focus on the direction that you want to go.
Learning how to focus is a major key to success in life. Our mind will constantly wander and if we don´t learn to focus, our thought will be all over the place. Most of the time we will focus on the things that we don´t want in our lives. The things that we are fearful off.
If you are in debt, you will probably focus most of your time on how you will be able to pay the bills. You will feel scared about the future and afraid that you will go broke.
Instead try to figure out a way that you can earn more money. Evaluate your spending habits. Maybe you can sell some things that you really don´t need. Start to pay more attention to all your purchases. Change the way you spend your money. Start saving.
If you are in a toxic relationship you will probably focus on all the drama that is going on. Instead try to find a solution on how to make it better for you by... maybe leave the relationship. Read a couple of books on how to work on yourself to become stronger, mentally, emotionally and physically. Talk to a therapist or a coach that can help you sort through things.
If you are in job situation that isn´t working. Instead of focusing on how terrible your boss and you coworkers are. Maybe you can try to figure out a way to learn a new skill so that you will be able to apply for a better job in the future that will better fit you. Focus on how you can grow as an individual. Take the focus on the people "out there" and start to focus on how you can better yourself.
Learn to shift your focus from what isn´t working to what is actually working in your life.
Focus on what you want.
It may take a little effort to do this in the beginning. Because a lot of us have focused all our mental energy on what isn´t working in our lives.
And a lot of times we don´t have a clue on what we actually want.
Start asking yourself better questions.
The questions you ask yourself control what you focus on.
How can I make it better?
What must I start to focus on today that will make my life better?
How can I create some better results in my life?
What specific action do I need to take to make things happen?
What am I focusing on that doesn´t serve me?
What is something that I really want for my life?
What is something that I do that I don´t want to do, that I have done for a long time?
What is my outcome?
What do I want?
Why do I want it?
A lot of people will ask...."What is wrong with me?"
This is a very lousy and disempowering question. Don´t ever ask that question.
There isn´t anything wrong with you.
You just need to shift you focus and learn to ask better questions.
