Focus On What You Want

Hello Friends,

Hope all is well.

"Focus on what you want rather than what you don't want."

In my last post I listed this as one of my 3 favorite quotes. It's really been on my mind for the past couple of days. I began to listen to peoples conversations and the words that they are using. It is amazing how many times we say can't, don't, no, won't, couldn't, never. These are all words of lack and negativity.

The Universe responds to your last strong emotion. You may be wanting something and really get excited. You start to focus on what you want. You meditate. You try to stay positive. Then someone plants the seed of doubt and all is lost. You start to focus on what was said. Now those negative thoughts become your last new emotion. The Universe begins to respond. You get frustrated and give up on your dreams.

The problem stemmed from the fact that the focus was lost. A simple comment can set off a chain reaction of negative events. Guard your thoughts and your desires. Be confident and sure in what you are wanting. Listen to the the inner voice inside you that says that you can have whatever you want if you would just focus on your goals.

An exercise I like to do is to to use only positive words. I try to eliminate, can't won't,never, etc. from my conversations. It's hard at first, but becomes natural after a while. Two things will happen as a result of doing this exercise.

1.) You will remove thoughts of lack. Instead of saying, "I don't want to be broke," say "I want financial freedom." You're saying the same thing but now your focused on freedom instead of being broke.

2.) It will bring you into the present moment. The NOW. Many times our thoughts of lack stem from prior events. We tend to make our decisions based on what has happened to us in the past. It can devastating if you have tried to start a business before and it failed. The next time the opportunity comes to start a new business you may become fearful because of what happened in the past.

When we live like this growth stops. You have the same negative thoughts over and over again, never to realize your true potential based on fear of failure. Focus on what you want and you will always be "here." In the present. If you truly focus on what you want it will be impossible have any negative thoughts.

Here's a great video by Kathy McAfee. You can also visit her at The Marketing Motivator. She is talking to group of people about focusing on what they want. She does an excellent job and offers us some great exercises that will help us to be focused.

Be whatever you want to be. All it takes is the proper focus. Make it easy for yourself. As a reminder I say these words daily. "The Universe wants me to succeed. I will not get in the way by trying to dictate to the Universe how things should be done. I will simply stay focused and go with the flow."

Many blessings and thanks for listening.
