Where Do You Focus?
Focus is where you put your attention.
- You can focus on what you don’t want in your life.
- You can focus your attention on the people who have harmed you in some way.
- You can focus on thoughts about your failures, your disappointments, and anything else that has caused you pain, anger, and regret.
This kind of focus will create a negative mental attitude in you about your life.
Ponder what Aristotle claimed:
It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.
How Changing Your Focus Will Change Your Life
No matter what has happened in your life, you always have a choice to change your focus from what you don’t want to what you do want.
No one has ever demonstrated the power of positive focus in horrible circumstances more than this statement by Austrian psychiatrist Viktor Frankl, who wrote Man’s Search for Meaning after enduring the horrors of Nazi death camps from 1942-1945.
Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.
Whatever your life circumstances, you can choose where you focus your attention and your thoughts. Consider how your thoughts affect your life.
What thoughts are you focusing on when you think? What thoughts aren't you thinking when you think. Nothing will change your life faster and better than to be very observant about your own focus, your thoughts, and your choices.
This is the life-changing secret of how to change your life. Nothing will change your life faster and better than to be very observant about your own focus, your thoughts, your choices. What you do or don't do with your life are all tied up with the idea of focus. The more you focus on what is wrong with your life, the more miserable you will be. If you want your life to be better, the more you focus on what you want rather than what you don't want, the better your life will be.
