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 September 9, 2015

What do you spend most of your time focusing on?  If you spend your time focusing on good stuff, you will probably feel good.  However, if you spend your time focusing on bad stuff, you will probably feel bad.  It’s pretty simple:  what you focus on becomes the your reality.

We all have problems in our lives.  There is no possible way that we can stop bad things from happening to us.  We can’t control what other people do to us and we can’t change what happens in the world.  But we DON’T have to drag our problems with us everywhere we go.   We CAN stop focusing on past problems and start focusing on how to make positive changes in our lives and work towards a solution.  Many of our problems can be resolved by just changing our perspective.

In any situation we can focus on the negative side or the positive side.   We can focus on a glass that is half empty or a glass that is half full.  We can focus on the muddy footprints that were left on the kitchen floor or the smiling child as they ran past.  We can focus on our poor test results or on working hard to do better next time.  We can focus on losing weight or eating healthy.

The next time you face a problem, don’t think about all the bad things that are going to happen.  Instead try to think about a realistic solution and keep a positive perspective.

  • focus on the positives, not the negatives
  • focus on your strengths, not your weakness
  • focus on the good in something, not the bad
  • focus on the things you are thankful for
  • focus on doing things that you enjoy doing
  • focus on realistic expectations instead of unrealistic ones
  • focus on a solution instead of the problem

So, what are you focusing on?
