The power of attention

If you fear something with intensity and persistence, it will become real in your life. If you desire something with intensity and persistence, then what you desire will become real in your life.

When you focus your attention and your energy on something, it will grow stronger. So it is far better to focus your attention on what is positive and desirable.

Do you see the world in terms of your limitations? Then those limitations will indeed hold you back. Instead, relate to the world from a perspective of your best possibilities. And you’ll surely bring those possibilities to life.

That is not to suggest that you ignore the negative or pretend that it doesn’t exist. Acknowledge and accept reality, then direct your energy toward the positive possibilities.

Your attention will give power to whatever it is focused upon. Choose to focus it in a way that will move you positively forward.

— Ralph Marston
