If thoughts have power, why would anyone focus on what’s not working and what’s wrong? If you asked a friend what they think they need to have a happy relationship, make more money, overcome procrastination, they know most of the time what’s wrong and how to fix it; more effort, more time, more energy. Haven’t you had the experience of working on the problems hoping to get them fixed so once it’s fixed you can be successful? Where are we really focused – on what’s wrong.
The Universal Law of Expansion states that wherever your attention is focused it will expand. Expand? Here’s another way of saying the same thing. What you pay attention to grows! Our thoughts create our universe thus the universe listens to what you are thinking, saying or acting whether consciously or unconsciously. “Oh, they want more wrong!” OK. Let’s give it to them.” To succeed, we need to focus on what’s right! We need to understand, practice and embrace this essential first universal law to bring about what we desire. When we do surprisingly an abundance of right will show up when you least expect it.
Success is personal and unique to you. Success is whatever you say it is for you.Consider the following:
“Success is achieved by developing our strengths not eliminating our weaknesses.”
Marilyn Van Savant – Billed as the person with the highest IQ (228) ever recorded.
I ask clients what do they think they are good at, what are their strengths. The majority can’t think of any. Over time we discover an abundance of them but we find ourselves immersed in what’s not working.
Success and focus follow what you are good at; your strengths based upon your natural innate talents. We’ll explore this at length in coming articles but for now here is the short hand version for you to consider.
Talents and strengths energize and have the power to increase your sense of well-being. They add to the quality of your life.
Challenges and/or weaknesses drain you. They sap your energy.
How do I find my talents and strengths? Ask what is it that I do that when I am actively involved in it, I am completely absorbed. What is it that comes easily?
Practice the Universal Law of Expansion. Get in the habit of acknowledging those parts of your life that work. It is in the habit of remembering and noting these moments in your life that success and accomplishment will mature and stick.
