Why is it that you don't yet have all that you want in your life? Why is it that you never seem to be moving forward, making progress, or reaching your goals?
Could it be that there is some force out there holding you back? Could it be your competitors, your family, your friends, or could it be something closer to home?
Could it be... an "inside job?"
Well, my dear friend let me share with you what I learned recently while attending a seminar given by Carole Dore. You may not know her name, but when I share with you what she taught, I'm sure you'll identify with her message!
Let me start by saying that you get what you focus on. So if you focus your thoughts on what you don't want in your life, you get more of what it is that you don't want. Most often, people know what they don't want and will typically be really quick to tell you so!
So let me ask you, what do you really want from your life. I mean, how often do you stop to think about your life in terms of how you would most like it to be, rather than how much you may not like way it is now?
Now, if you focus on what it is that you do want, you will get it... and often much more of it than you asked for!
You are your thoughts. In fact, our lives are merely printout of our innermost thoughts. And you thought that you could think whatever you wanted and that nobody could ever tell, right? You are your thoughts. You get what you think about most often.
If that is true, then look at your life, your business, and even your relationships right now. Do you like what you see? Are you happy with what you have? Or do you really want more?
What have you been thinking about? Do you focus on how little money you make in your business, so you actually begin to make LESS money? Do you spend your day complaining about your significant other so instead of making things better, they actually get worse as time goes on?
Are you constantly bothered by what your neighbor is doing instead of being focused on what you are doing?
Or, are you type of person who can really overlook all negative stuff that surrounds you and truly focus instead on what it is you really want in your life? If you are this type of person, I'll bet that your life is a happy one.
Do you think about your business in terms of what it is like to actually be owner of most successful business on block? Do you see yourself living good life, owning real estate, or even traveling world?
Many people actually do focus on what it is that they really want in their lives, and still they don't get what they want! Now, wait a minute, didn't I just say that you get what you focus on? You bet I did!
What happens is that you may focus on what you want until you encounter first obstacle to get in your way. At that very moment, your vision is crushed, and dream dies.
You see, life is testing you and I all time. And when you don't give up on your dreams, even when it seems all hope is lost, what most often happens is that your dreams are realized - quicker and more powerfully than ever!
