AN Insider’s view to “What you Focus on GETS BIGGER”
HAVE YOU NOTICED HOW MUCH EASIER IT IS to give words of wisdom and advice to other people rather than follow them for you? Well, that’s what happened to me recently. Talk about a lesson learned.
I wanted to write an article about “what you focus on gets bigger.” You’ve heard similar phrases like, “It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy,” “As it is within, so it is without,” “What you think about, comes about,” and where you put your attention, happens.
All I could think about was how I couldn’t come up with the article for my upcoming newsletter. I couldn’t think of how to write what I wanted to say. Inspiration was definitely not coming through. This was growing into a much harder topic than I thought it would be. I kept putting it off, finding everything else under the sun to do rather than writing. I ended up thinking that I better throw out this topic fast and come up with another one or else there wouldn’t be any article this particular week.
And then in a flash, it hit me. What I was focusing on was getting bigger. I was creating exactly what I was thinking about. I was thinking about struggle and no article. Here I wanted to give you examples from some of my clients, and the best example that I could give you was my very own. The irony of it all made me laugh. The joke definitely was on me.
With that flash of insight, my perspective changed. What took me almost a week to do, suddenly came together very quickly. All it took was the right focus. And, the lesson I learned was that “what you focus on gets bigger” is very neutral. It doesn’t care whether you’re focusing on something negative or positive. Whatever it is, that’s exactly what you’ll get.
As you can see, thoughts can be very sneaky. Just when you think you’re thinking positive thoughts, you find they’re actually negative. Success… from the inside out means giving yourself empowering messages regularly so you can stay on track. Keeping these message written down and in front of you is best. Sticking notes on a computer or refrigerator work great. And your message for this week is? You got it. “ What you focus on gets bigger.”
