Bad Focus Points
While you are out driving, say for a Sunday vehicular walkabout, have you ever noticed that if you focus on a sign or something interesting, the car begins to drift in that direction?
This is why they say, “Keep your eyes on the road.”
Up until not too long ago, I never knew how many folks lived in a negative space, one of only focusing on what they don’t want. Never, not once, have they thought about what they DO want. If someone asked me for a percentage I would have to say high 90’s.
We know from the Law of Attraction that this is exactly what you don’t want to do.
Good Focus Points
You get what you focus on.
If you focus on what you want, you get what you want.
If you focus on what you don’t want, you get what you don’t want.
Focus on what you want.
If you find my statement that, “Never, not once, have they thought about what they DO want,” understand that wishing to retire living on an island drinking fruity drinks is a substitute for a hated job, not a dream for how to live one’s life.
Being swept up in in the desire for the pictures some ‘guru’ put up on his page are not goals, they are distractions keeping you from what you really want.
Do you really want a $200,000 sports car? Do you really want a home so big you have to spend another $100,000 a year just to keep it up?
Are these the things you want or are they things you believe will distract you from the pain of your existence?
The pain that makes you get up at 2AM because that is the only time the phone is not ringing from creditors.
The pain that makes you drive like a maniac on the road, knowing all the while that it is not them you are really mad at but the pain of being locked in a life you hate.
Focus, like that X-ray laser Edward Teller wanted to build, focus on what you want and keep at it and the universe will start moving those colossal gears in your favor.
What To Do Right Now
- Get a blog and start blogging1.
- Find someone you believe in and read his books2.
- Watch him on YouTube, as well.
- Think about what it is you want.
- Ask yourself why you want it.
Take some time and think about it.
Decide what you want, and why, before you go into a business that you hate as much as you hate your job.
I have included a list of books I believe in. They helped me. Here they are in no particular order:
- Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
- Who Took My Money? by Robert Kiyosaki
- Prophecy by Robert Kiyosaki
- The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons by Andrew Carnegie
This is a get your feet wet while you figure out exactly what it is you want to accomplish.
Look around; see what others are doing.
See what’s working.
Let me know your thoughts.
1. Own your blog. Bite the bullet on having a hosting account. If others control your blog, then others can control how you use it. Build your own blog and do frequent backups to your personal hard drive.
2.If I had to pick one(1) book to start with, my advice is the original. The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons by Andrew Carnegie is what started it all. It is $4.95 and downloadable as a PDF.
