Where Focus Goes Energy Flows
Let’s imagine you are enjoying a Sunday drive down a narrow country road and all of a sudden a truck appears round a blind bend. The truck is heading towards you, going fast. Your eyes widen, and your heart is pounding rapidly. What do you do?
In that moment, your life depends only on where your focus is. Many people in such a situation focus their attention on the truck: the object they want to avoid.
And in doing so, the inevitable will happen: the head-on collision. If you, however, place your focus on what you want, by looking away from the truck and seeking an empty space to drive into, you will be safe.
Use this analogy to think about life: your life depends on what you focus on. When you focus on the things you don’t want in life, you are steering directly towards them, and, worse, you will get more of them. Simply put: you get more of what you focus on.
For example, if you are at a job you hate, you probably repeat things like, “I don’t want to work here. I hate this job”, or “I feel uncomfortable meeting Simone’s children tonight. What if they don’t like me?”
Where is your focus?
On the things you don’t want; you are focusing on the job you hate and on the uncomfortable feeling you have meeting the children.
So, you will naturally attract more of the same, and in doing so, you will increase your hatred for the job and stay in that job, and you will increase your level of uncomfortable feeling.
As human beings, we tend to place our thoughts, attention and feelings on the things we don’t want, and we wonder why nothing changes in our lives! Our minds are programmed to bring about more of whatever we focus on.
Actually, if you think about that for a moment, that should be great news, for all you have to do is focus on the things you do want, and when you do so with feeling, they will come to you in due course.
Your mind, or more specifically, your subconscious mind, will work on bringing to reality what it is that you feel you want. The good and the bad. Be careful!
So, for you to have what you desire in life, pay closer attention to your feelings and to what you’re focusing on.
As often as you can, ask yourself this question: “What am I now focusing on?”
If it’s on what you don’t want, change it to what you do want.
Again, using the truck analogy, focus on the empty road further on, rather than on the truck that is approaching you.

Instead of ‘changing the TV channel’ because we can’t bear to watch the harshness of life around us, we can take combined action to transform lives.
We cannot change the circumstances that brought people to where they are, but we can change their thinking, from within, to improve the quality of their present and future lives.
