Empowering focus

From the same exact situation, two different people can achieve two remarkably different results. Why is that?

Because the results you achieve are not determined by the situation itself. The results you achieve are determined by what you choose to focus on.

If you focus on all the things that could go wrong, your mind will find a way to make those things really happen. But that’s not what you want, is it?

Instead, give yourself an empowering focus. Lock your focus solidly on the positive possibilities.

Think in great detail about the good and valuable and desirable outcomes. Without question or hesitation, your mind will begin finding realistic, workable ways to make those good things happen.

Carefully and intentionally guide your focus to the best place you can imagine. And your focus will, in turn, take you there.

— Ralph Marston
