Focus On What You Want

The first rule to being successful is to focus on what you want rather than what you don’t want… all too often we think about what we don’t want and wonder why we just get more of the same whilst others appear to be successful.

Understanding The Law Of Attraction helps as this states that we are responsible for attracting everything into our lives, so focusing on what we do want will help to attract what we want rather than attract what we don’t want.

The fact is that people who are positive thinkers are so much more likely to be successful than someone who isn’t, and positive people focus on what they want.

Think about a successful Olympic athlete…do you think they focus on winning or do they dwell on the thoughts of losing? In the recent economic recession I have worked closely with many struggling businesses and they have generally fallen into one of two camps: those who have focused on what they do want who have found new and innovative ways of surviving and those who have focused on their problems who have ended up closing their business and in many cases sinking into debt and despair.

To understand, recognise and focus on what you want doesn’t necessarily mean you know how you will get there. But don’t worry, having a clear picture of what you want is the first step and the rest will follow. 

So what do you want?

At this stage don’t start imposing limits by saying ‘well, I can’t have that because…’ or ‘I’ll never achieve that.’ Just think about your perfect world, no holds barred, and create a compelling picture of all the things that you want in your life: the relationship you want, the house, the career, the friends etc.

Creating an overall vision (see the power of creative visualization and tips for creating a powerful vision) and setting specific goals are two techniques you can use that really help to focus your mind on what you want.

If you are at this stage a really good starting point is to watch the DVD The Secret as this really does highlight the power of focusing on what you want.
