The Problem Is Your Thoughts

What do you focus your thoughts on? Do you focus on the things that you want or the things that you don’t want?

What You Focus On Expands

Chris Langston Focusing On Time ManagementI’m a HUGE believer in the expression that “What You Focus On Expands”. Don’t believe that it works?

Give it a trial run with your friends, family, co-workers. Here’s what you can do. Find the ones that always seems to be complaining or griping about something. It usually is related to someone makes more money than me, lives in the nicer house than me, has better friends than me. They will probably make statements such as “If I wasn’t so far behind on my credit card payment” or “If I had a better car, I could get a better job” or “If I could only learn how to do “X” {insert what you hear in your situation here} I could do better.”

The problem is that they are focusing on what they don’t want instead of what they DO WANT.

These are called defeating believes and thoughts. The do not benefit you at all.

Here’s what I do when those negative or defeating beliefs pop into my head. I acknowledge to myself that I hear what it’s saying, but then I immediately squash the thought and replace it with a thought that is empowering, one that brings me the exact thing that I want.

This will sound kind of hoakie to you at first, but it worked for me

Ways To Overcome Defeating Thoughts

One technique that I used early on to do away with defeater beliefs was to wear a rubber band around my wrist. When I found myself focusing on the wrong thing or letting my mind tell me negative things, I would simply pull back the rubber band and pop myself on the wrist. I’m no psychologist so I can’t tell you exactly what goes inside your brain when this “POP” hits your wrist and that sting is sent to the brain, but I can tell you that IT WORKS!

So, ask yourself this question, “Do I focus on what I WANT or what I DO NOT WANT?” When you answer honestly to yourself, I think you can start to figure out what is holding you back.

These defeating, limited thoughts are the cause if you not being as successful as you would like. Maybe this has to do with your online business or creating that new product or writing the book that you know you have inside you.

I encourage you to pay close attention to your thoughts and Focus on What You Want and it will be so.

What has worked for you?  What techniques do you use to focus on the things that you want?
