If you’re reading this right now and you’re going through a hard time, direct your focus in order to change your reality. It sounds so simple, but a conscious choice to focus on the things that uplift us, fulfill us, and invigorate us will take you to places you never thought were possible. Why? Because what we focus on grows stronger; if we constantly are focusing on what we lack in our lives, we will continue to see more of it. Instead, if we focus our attention on actions that bring us closer to our dream lives, you can create it from the inside out. It’s not what we do, it’s how we do it.
Don’t believe me? As I write this, I’ve struggled to find myself for a long time. I’ve felt lost, confused, in awe and in wonderment of my life and the choices I’ve made. I’ve realized throughout it all that in order to live the life that I’ve always wanted, all I ever had to do was focus on the things that I wanted to build in my life. That attention backed up by action will change your whole life if you run with. it.
Brick by brick, day by day, If you focus on what you want to grow, eventually it will flourish. We are constantly bombarded with information and knowledge about how to change our lives. Many of these facets of information, while well-intentioned, often keep us in the same feedback loop without ever seeing any real, tangible results in our internal and external world. The difference in changing your life is choosing what you focus on and not allowing the tribulations of distraction to deter you away from these things. Focus and zero in on that life. Visualize it so deeply that it feels like it’s here. Then take small steps each and every day towards it. Watch how this change manifests.
Understand that the world around us is simply a reflection of the internal world within us. It’s that simple. It won’t be easy, but it is simple; you’ll question yourself, doubt yourself, and wonder why things aren’t happening as fast as you would like, but eventually directing your focus on the things that truly call you and the relationship that truly fulfills you will grow into something you never believed was possible.
Trust this notion. Change the belief that life had to be something that you never wanted it to be. So often we allow the beliefs of the ones around us to dictate how we should direct our lives, when really, changing your attention towards the life and the beliefs you want to hold for yourself will change everything for you—inside and out.
Believe that anything is possible with intention. Believe that an intention can be brought to life with daily focus that inspires action towards it. As soon as you become aware of your beliefs, your reality can change into anything you desire. This life is meant to be yours, so direct your focus on what you want that life to look like.
