Where’s Your Focus?…Your Life Depends On It

January 31, 2013

I have recently had the chance to watch and listen to inspirational speaker Tony Robbins. I’ve always admired and respected the work he’s done, and I’ve read several quotes from him, and articles about him. It’s only recently that I’ve actually spent time watching his messages.

In one of his messages I recently watched, Tony presents an experiment on the topic of focus. I will share it with you and you can play along if you like. I’ll share what it means at the end. Ok, here goes…in the room you’re in right now, observe everything that is brown. After a few seconds, close your eyes. Now try to remember all the brown things you observed. It’s not too diffifcult, right? Now, close your eyes again and try to think of all the things in the room that are red. Is it much more difficult to do? Can you come up with many more brown things?

Here’s the point of the experiment. In our lives, we see much more of the things we focus on than those we don’t. When it came time to recalling the objects, why was it much easier to focus on brown objects? Because that’s what you were focused on. You didn’t focus on red, which is why it was difficult to recall those objects.

What we see in our lives has much to do with what we focus on. When you focus on doubt, worry, poverty, and negative circumstances, guess what you’ll see and experience? It is likely to be the negative. Those that focus on faith, gratitude, abundance, and positive outcomes are much more likely to experience them. It is simply a matter of focus.

What are you focused on? Are you envisioning failure or success? Lack or abundance? Strife or peace? The choice is yours. Regardless of your choice, you will see and experience what you are focused on. So why not focus on the positive? Even if you are not yet seeing the results you want, keep your mind focused on the desired outcome. You will eventually receive it. And if you don’t, it means God has something even better in store for you. You can’t lose!

Focus on the ideal result in your mind, live like you already have it, and have the faith that your goal will be reached. It will happen if you believe and your focus is right. Enjoy it!
