Have you ever known someone that just never seemed to have issues? No drama, nothing bad ever happened, their life just seemed charmed. Even when things do happen, they just seem to be able to know how to handle it, it gets handled and they move on. Their bumps in the road seem so small and insignificant compared to ours.
Whatever you focus on grows…good or bad!
Most of us are experts at what is going wrong in our lives, I do it all the time. That’s why it feels like we get one issue behind us and then there is another.
When I focused on debt, it grew! When I focused on how crappy my life was, I felt even worse. When I focused on all the mistakes I have made, I made even more bad choices.
It has 100% to do with where the focus is. Where the focus is, the energy goes. Where your energy is, your actions and habits go and that creates your results and outcomes.
It’s a cycle of habitually focusing your energy on the wrong thing.
Whatever we spend the most time thinking about is what we nurture and what we nurture, we manifest.
The good news is that we can also use this theory to design the life we want to live and get the things we want.
Want better outcomes? Think better thoughts!
We always have a choice of looking at what is possible and investing in the thoughts that serve all of the possibilities, but out brain is built on a negative bias.
Do you find yourself saying things like, “What do I have to lose?” or “What’s the worst that could happen?”
These questions seem benign but they are not. These types of questions actually create the limitation ahead of the pursuit of your goal. What???
When you ask your brain “what do I have to lose, or what’s the worst that can happen” your brain goes to work giving you the answer and constructs the worst case scenarios and presents them to you in the form of negative thought loops.
Stinking thinking creates stinking result! 100% every single time.
The good news is that when we focus on what is possible, our brain starts working towards that. Your intuition takes over and starts figuring things out, starts showing you the way. Your gut instinct kicks in and decisions are made and your grit grows and you start taking massive action.
- What area of your life do you want to see a positive difference?
- What are the questions to ask yourself to focus your energy toward attracting your outcome?
- Take action based on those questions.
So here are some questions to ask yourself instead:
- What do I have to gain?
- What will be the benefit?
- Who else will have gain and benefit?
- What is the best case scenario?
- Where are there other opportunities for gain that I have not thought about?
- What can I think right now to attract the outcome I want?
The right questions lead to the right energy and focus and that leads to the results and outcomes we want.
Remember, whatever you focus on grows.
Now, go be a goal setting, goal getting, goal digger!
