Today I want to share one of the most powerful lessons that I have ever learnt. If you master the teachings from this lesson then I guarantee your life will never be the same again!
What we focus on becomes our reality!
Four years ago I read an amazing book that has changed my life forever. The book is called 'Think and Grow Rich' and was written by Napoleon Hill in 1937. Napoleon Hill spent his entire life studying the laws of success and worked with some of the wealthiest men in history such as Andrew Carnegie and Henry Ford. His Laws of Success have stood the test of time and are still very valid today. If you take the time to read, study and apply those principles, I guarantee they will have a massive impact on your results and also the quality of your life.
Scientists have estimated that we have over 25,000 thoughts every day. The problem is that those 25,000 thoughts tend to be the exact same thoughts repeating themselves over and over again!
We develop patterns of behavior over time and our lives become very predictable. We sleep on the same side of the bed each night, we eat the same breakfast, brush our teeth in the same direction and have a shower washing the same body parts in the same order! We then drive to work on the same roads, talk to the same people and do the same work. We get home and watch the same television shows, have the same dinners and talk about the same topics.
We spend our entire working week counting down the days to the weekend. We then spend the weekend going out, drinking, socialising and complaining about how bad work is. Sunday night comes around quickly and we start getting depressed at the thought of going back to work again on Monday. This robot like routine repeats itself over and over again! Do you know that there are more heart attacks on a Monday morning at 9am than any other time in the week?
The sad fact is that 95% of people tend to bitch, whine and complain about their current situation without attempting to do anything to change it. They don't realise that they are creating this miserable life by the way that they think!
Nothing changes if nothing changes!
95% of people are stuck in a rut in their lives and a rut is only a few inches above a grave! To change our lives we must change our habits and to change our habits we must change our thoughts! New thoughts lead to new feelings which lead to new actions which lead to new results!
Thoughts -> Feelings -> Actions -> Results
We must learn to monitor our thoughts if we want to change our lives. How much time do you spend focusing on what you don't want in life instead of focusing on what you do want?
Imagine yourself like a human transmission tower, transmitting a frequency with your thoughts. If you want to change anything in your life, change the frequency by changing your thoughts.
The key to success is to spend more time focusing on what we want in life. We need to stop complaining about our current circumstances and accept the fact that we have created everything through our thoughts. We must accept full responsibility for our current reality. If we play a victim we are powerless. If we accept the fact that we have created everything in our lives then we now become powerful. We now have the ability to change our lives. All it takes is a decision! To change our current situation we must change our thoughts and refocus our energy.
If you type 'Poverty' into a Google search engine what comes up? Millions of topics about poverty! What happens if you type 'Wealth' into the same search engine? You get millions of pages about wealth!
What are you typing into your search engine?
If you are currently in debt and you keep getting bills in the mail then the first step is to stop complaining about the bills. Every time you complain about your level of debt you attract more debt into your life. This effect is compounded if you add extreme emotion to the situation. The frequency that you are emitting out to the universe is 'Debt'! You need to start focusing on wealth and abundance if you want to get out of debt.
The same rule applies to people who continually protest against what they don't want. They make up banners and posters, march down the street and start yelling "no more war, no more war'. They don't realise that by doing this they are actually attracting more war into their lives! Whenever you add feeling and emotion to your thoughts the results are compounded one hundred fold. Instead of being anti war they must change their thoughts to being pro peace. Whether they are thinking 'NO MORE WAR' or 'BRING ON THE WAR' the vibration is EXACTLY the same and they will attract it into their lives.
Over the next few days start to monitor your thoughts.
Take note of how many times you focus on what you don't want. Use your emotions as a guide. If you are feeling negative emotions then you must be focusing on something that you do not want. If you are feeling positive emotions then keep focusing on that!
As soon as you feel yourself focusing on negative situations immediately shift your focus to what you do want. This will take some practice but the first step to changing your life starts with increasing your awareness.
