Where Do You Place Your Focus?
“The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.”
– Cecil B. DeMille
In this life, focus is everything! Your life is determined by the things that take up your attention, the result can be disappointment and desperation, or happiness and blissful joy. It is a choice we have to make there are thousands of things happening around us every day, but we can only pay attention to between three or seven of them at a time.
When you go to a party and there is a room full of people, you may see an argument taking place, red faces of anger, pointing fingers, harsh tones at one side of the room. Another person at the same party may see some other people smiling and laughing, arms wrapped around one another dancing.
If someone was to ask if the party was a good one, the reply would be defined by what you saw. By focusing on the pleasant things that happen in life, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t any negative ones, but your personal experience of life will change for the better.
If the prime focus of your life is a goal or goals that you are aiming for it will be less likely that you will be distracted and more likely that you will become dedicated to the life of your choosing, and that that life is the one that you will experience.
