Yesterday we talked about focusing your thoughts on what you are for, not what you are against.
This is a way of shifting from a negative mindset to a more positive mindset.
But lets be honest…
We all have things in our life that aren’t what we wish they were.
One might even call them problems if they weren’t trying to be careful about the language they used.
In fact, I hesitate to even write some of this stuff, because I don’t want to put negative images in your (or my) head.
But for the sake of clarity, we’re going to get a little specific.
So this concept of focusing on the positive can apply to situations in your life too.
And here’s how:
Focus on what you want, rather than what you don’t want.
Let’s make a specific example.
Say you were in a bunch of financial turmoil.
There are 2 ways to approach this.
One is to figure out how to get out of debt.
That’s a worthy goal, but the issue with this approach is that you are focusing on debt, which is what you don’t want.
The more you focus on what you don’t want, the more you bring it into your life.
Besides, even if you get out of debt, you’re basically just at zero.
You’ve improved your situation, but not tremendously.
So instead, focus on what you want…
Which is more money.
In fact, you want enough money that debt is not an issue.
So rather than focusing on how to elimate your debt, focus on how to generate more income.
That’s a huge topic for another day, but how much better off would you be if you generated enough extra income to get and stay out of debt?
These are small mindet shifts that are simple, but not easy.
But they’ll make all the difference.
I challenge you to try it for a month.
See what happens.
