Shift your FOCUS...

Your experience today of life, is heavily impacted by where you have your focus. Where you hold your focus creates the experience you have of the people, places, circumstances and events in your life.

I invite you to ask yourself:

  • Do you have any consciousness or awareness of where your focus is at any given time?

  • Do you have any consciousness or awareness of how you are perceiving the world outside of you?

The long standing accepted theory is, that you get what you focus on. So focus on what you want. When you focus on what you don’t want, you get what you don’t want.

For example, if you are constantly thinking about not having enough money and how are you going to pay your next bill, then you are likely to experience more debt and feeling like you don’t have enough money

It is a huge challenge for all of us to focus on what we want. It requires us to have some clarity of what we want. Most of us are really good at being clear on what we don’t want.

When you find yourself focusing on what you don’t want, one technique for shifting your focus to what you want, is to ask yourself “what do I want instead?”

I have received feedback from many clients over the years, that they have “lost focus.” The good news is, you don’t really lose focus, it just goes somewhere else. Think of focus like the light beam of a torch. It shines where you direct it. What happens with a lot of people is that the “light beam” shifts/moves without them being conscious that it has shifted.

How can you pick this up when it occurs? There are a number of ways, however two that work for me are:

  • Pay attention to your language, including all the silent self-talk

  • Pay attention to your outside world, as your outside world we very quickly start to reflect where you have your focus.

Finally, your motivation is impacted by where you hold your focus. Lack/Loss of motivation is a direct result of focussing on what you don’t want. For example, if you focus on what you don’t like about your work or workplace then you will lose motivation. Move your focus onto what you do like, or what works for you and your motivation will shift very quickly.

When you shift your focus everything shifts…
