What you focus on grows. It’s as simple as that.
Focus on your weight on the scale? It grows.
Focus on the hurt someone inflicted you? It grows.
Focus on the poison ivy on your skin? It grows.
But this principle also works the other way.
Focus on investing into a friendship? It grows.
Focus on mastering a skill? It grows.
Focus on being thankful? It grows.
Our minds somehow find a way to make what we focus on happen. In Star Wars, Episode I, Qui-Gon says to Anakin, “Always remember, your focus determines your reality.”
When I focused on how exhausted I was, that is truly what I was, from morning to night–exhausted. But when I began to focus on health and joy, that is what I began to harvest. Tiredness and depression kind of went by the way side. Can any one identify?
This is just a fact of life; that’s how we are created. But when you take a hold of this, it can become a powerful key that opens many doors for you.
Want something to happen? Change your thoughts. Start focusing on it. And keep focusing on it.
Attained goals are reached not because of will power, or strong desire, or even ability. Goals aren’t a matter of will power or even ability. They are the result of practiced thoughts that bring about actions. Focus that translated into doing things.
I have seen this in my life over and over again.
When I decided to be financially free, I decided to work on my mindset first. As I moved forward, I found (or did I create?) new paths that get me there. Consistent reflection on my goal started to paint a picture for me; the more I “sat” with my goal, the clearer my understanding of the solution was. And I found myself absolutely willing to do what I needed to do to get there. Focus became a driving force.
Our minds are truly amazing creations. The Master Creator really knew what He was doing.
The reality on the inside becomes the reality on the outside. Every. single. time.
What will you focus on?
