Focusing on what you want.

To focus means to give your attention, energy, time or resources to something, often something that is important to you or something that you want. It entails pouring your energy, giving utmost attention to what you really want and refusing to recognize what you don’t want(even when they are tangible).

    What we want often exists in our imagination(intangible) and that is why it’s a little difficult to give it our attention. Sometimes, the things we see or feel which is what we don’t want, often gets more of our attention; prevailing unpleasant situations also get our attention because we tend to focus on what we see or feel. We always want something in the absence of it, that is; we want what we don’t have or more of the little we have. Some of the things we want are: money, jobs, houses, happiness, a spouse, the list is inexhaustible. If you must get what you want, take the necessary steps or actions towards what you want. Don’t focus on what you don’t want, don’t complain about them, simply work towards actualizing your dreams(what you want).

Complaining to our spouses, colleagues, friends etc. about the things we don’t want means we are focusing on them and they will stay longer because you’ve given your energy, time and attention to them by complaining about them. It means you’re giving them life, it means you’re watering the wrong things. Consciously shift your attention from what you don’t want because we attract to our lives whatever we focus on. Focusing on what we want has a way of lessening those things we don’t want in our lives and giving us more of what we want.

The Most Powerful Tool- The Mind

The mind is the most powerful tool any human can have. Everything we need is in the mind, what we are, was conceived by the mind, where we are, is as a result of our previous conception. I learnt earlier that “whatever the mind can conceive, you can achieve.” No man is better than the quality of his mind, show me a great man, I will show you a great mind.
  What is the mind? I would say the mind is the seat of conception, it is where your thoughts originates. It is also important to know that your mind is immaterial and as such it's invincible. You can use your mind to your advantage. I’ll like to show you a scripture. “The lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, lift up your eyes from WHERE YOU ARE and look north and south, east and west. All the land that YOU SEE I will give to you and your offspring forever.” Genesis 13v14-15 (NIV). Emphasis mine. You can see that Abram got what he saw, he saw the whole earth with his mind's eyes. It’s impossible to see all the earth from where he was with the optical eyes, he saw it in his imagination and he became the father of all nations. If he did not see, God wouldn’t give him. A childless man became the father of all because he used the most powerful tool; the mind. What are you doing with yours?
You must learn to use your mind correctly. The images you hold in your mind about yourself, your relationship and your life as a whole is very important because they either make or mar your life. Hold positive images in your mind about everything, everyone and about life. Life delivers to you just what you think or conceive. For instance, have you ever thought of someone and you find the person calling or come visiting  later? That’s the simplest way I can explain that your mind(thoughts) attracts the people, things or anything it thinks about especially your predominant thoughts. Like attracts like, therefore you attract situations similar to that which is in your mind. Don’t forget your words come from your mind too that means it reflects your thinking. Imagine how your life will be if you begin now to be positive in your thinking about everything and everyone in your life, you will begin to attract  positive and rewarding situations and events to yourself. Change those negative thoughts in your mind.

 You become your thoughts, no wonder the wisest man said “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” You become what you think about most of the time. If you think you can’t, you can’t. If you think you won't win, it almost certain you won't. If you think you're the best, you are and if you think you will win, you will. It all start by altering your mental attitude because the result you get depends on the state of your mind. Pay attention to what occupies your mind. Guard what gets into your mind by filtering every thought. If you want to get the desired results in your life then “…keep thy heart with all deligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4v23 (KJV)
