The tools are attention and intention.

Attention is defined as: "Concentration ofrepparttar 102076 mental powers upon an object."

You use attention any time you concentrate your thoughts upon something, whether it's an object or just another thought.

A simple law ofrepparttar 102077 universe says wherever you focus your attention, you also focus your creative energy. In other words, what you think about, you create in your experience.

Intention is "the object of your desires."

When you focus your *attention* on what you want and make it your *intention* to create it, you take hold of a creative force that can literally move mountains.

It's Not Okay To Get What I Want

Written by Michael D. Pollock

Here'srepparttar most common problem I see among clients, friends, family members and colleagues. Actually, it's not really a problem so much as it is a belief. It's a limiting belief that says:

"It's not okay to get what I want."

Not only do I see it in others, but it's also one of my own personal favorites. How about you? Does any of this ring true for you?

"What I want" can be anything fromrepparttar 102073 last piece of pizza to a certain amount of time to yourself to a happy marriage to a career or business you really want.

Whateverrepparttar 102074 object of desire, there's an underlying belief or feeling that says it's not okay to have it.

Several months ago, during a session with my own coach, I came face to face with this very issue. I'd been working more than usual, and my coach was really challenging me to tell my employer I neededrepparttar 102075 following day off.

That was a tough challenge to consider. Although I probably deserved a day off as much as anyone else, there was something in me that foughtrepparttar 102076 idea.

I thought how nice it would be to not have any agenda for repparttar 102077 whole day, and I wanted to take that day off. But still, I could feelrepparttar 102078 tension arise within me as she challenged me further.

The end result was I did takerepparttar 102079 day off - just not that particular day. We compromised. Actually, I compromised. Right? Wrong? Who knows. Who cares? The world is still running fine, and I haven't lost any sleep over my decision.

The first of 28 Attraction Principles in Thomas Leonard's "The Portable Coach" is "Become Incredibly Selfish." Hmm. I wonder if Thomas saw this as a common issue with his clients, friends and colleagues? If you haven't readrepparttar 102080 book yet, I'd suggest you pick up a copy. He gives a whole new definition forrepparttar 102081 word selfish.

Along with that, here are a few tips I'll offer as well.

1. Learn to recognize this belief working in your life. Do you rarely make time for yourself? Do you find yourself involved in all sorts of projects that you really don't enjoy? Are you doing and having everything except that which you really want? Those are a few ways this belief may show up in your life.

2. Get clear on what you really do want. Do you want an extra hour or two each day for yourself? How about an incredibly happy marriage or relationship? Maybe you'd just like a more comfortable chair at work.
