you will never learn how to control your behavior."
- Joyce Meyer
What you focus on totally affects your life. Whatever you focus on you are going to feel, even if it isn't true.
If you focus on that the economy is going to hell......you are going to feel like hell.
Are you a person that will focus on what you can´t control?
Like the weather, what other people did or didn't do or say, how you parents/siblings act, how your boss is rude, how you wife/husband is ignoring you or what is going on in the world and the news.
Or are you focusing on what you don't have in your life?
Are you constantly focusing on that you don't have enough money, a bigger car or a bigger house, that you don't have the perfect partner in you life, your friends are all rude or that you don't have the right job or resources available to you.
How about the past.....are you focusing most of your time on the past?
You constantly think about what happened in the past and you actually have taken up residency there.
What your parents did or didn't do, what you teacher said to you, someone mistreated you or even betrayed you.
It´s only when you life isn´t working, that your past matters. You learn from the past.....but you don't live there and you can´t drive yourself into the future by using a review mirror, called the past.
If you do....you will crash.
If you focus a lot of your time on what you can't control, on what you don't have or the past you are going to feel terrible.
Instead learn to focus in a different direction. Learn to see the opportunities instead.
Learn to control your focus......or the environment and the world will do it for you.
The news is always trying to get our attention. It is everywhere....TV, Internet, FB, Twitter and even on your phone. The news follows us wherever we go....... trying to get our attention.
The news is trying to get us to pay attention to a story that will jolt us. If it bleeds.....it leads.
There are also people in our own lives that are also trying to constantly get our attention through everyday drama, email or social media. Family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers.
So again.....if you don't take control of your thought the world will do it for you.
It is not what you focus on once in a while that will get you. It is was you regularly focus on that will affect you.
If you want to change your life you first have to wake up. Pay attention to what you have a tendency to focus on at a regular base.
We all decide on what to focus on.
If you realize that most of your thought are in the past, on what you can't control and what you don't have in your life......you can change your thoughts right now.
Make a conscious decision today to change what you focus on.
Don´t allow the environment to do it for you.
When you focus on what you want, everything else falls away.
Start by focusing on what is already working, what you are can control and what you are grateful for.
Focus on what is possible for you and what you want to create in your life.
