I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

What do you focus on?

on January 12, 2014

little girl thinkingWe live in a world that is full of negativity.  People constantly complain and criticize.  People blame other people for their problems.  People judge others and point fingers.  We hear nasty and rude comments.  All this negativity just brings us down and keeps us from being positive.

There are so many good things in this world but they are often blocked by all the negativity.

It all depends on what you focus on.  Do you focus on the negatives or focus on the positives?  Our brain naturally tends to be negative but we can train it to be positive.  How?

We have to start taking action by:

  • being aware that we are focusing on the negative
  • redirecting our thinking to something positive
  • committing to change
  • practicing daily
  • being patient
  • not giving up when we fail

So what are you focusing on?  What do you think about?  What kind of people do you associate with?  What kind of places do you hang around in?  Surround yourself with positive people, places and things and it will be easier for you to focus on the positives.   Then you will be a positive example for your family, your children, your friends, your co-workers and everyone around you.

    Thank you so much for this thought provoking post on a very important topic: what are we thinking about? It’s essential that we become aware of our predominant thoughts, because in this way we can change them. Let’s all think more positively! 😀 Gina

    You are welcome! Being positive CAN become a habit if we continue working at it daily. I used to have so many negative thoughts – I can’t believe how I lived that way for so long. Life is so much easier when we focus on the positive. Have a positively positive day!!
