What you focus on and give attention will grow

Ever heard the expression, what you fear you create? That means if someones drives a car and is affriad of crashing, then they will eventually crash? If someone is affraid of people, then all people around him or her will seem hostile?

That´s because we create our own reality. We create our own destiny. We see things through our filters. But not the filters of our eyes. The filters of our minds! There´s another expression: Seeing is believing. Well, I think it´s the other way. Believing is seeing.

What you believe in, will become true for you. What you believe in – you will go and find evidence of – to validate your beliefs. So, if you create what you fear, then it must match the other way… What you focus on and believe in – you create!

That´s what I´ve used to change the course of my life. I´ve struggled, and I´ve been depressed for over 20 years of my life. But once I settled for new goals, once I awakened my dreams and made them true in my mind – a shift started to take place. Since I no longer felt my life was bad all the time, I slowly started to move in a differet direction. I took another path. Now, 10 years later – I´m still on the new path, and now I´m not just walking the path – I´m climbing the mountains!

So, keep this in mind: Focus on where you want to be. Not where you are. As focusing on the problems will only create more of them. Focus on the solutions, on your dreams and goals… THAT will make a huge difference!

    Saw this only now…
    It’s good advice, and I agree. Positive thinking is an important step towards success. And it makes life much more pleasant 🙂

    Sounds just like the advice given to Richard by Zed in Terry Goodkind’s “Sword of Truth” book series . . . “focus on the solution, not the problem.”
