What target are you giving your focus?

by | Dec 3, 2016 | Focus | 0 comments

Looking for something in the garage today, I found myself saying,

“I’m not seeing it.”

Every where I looked, I said, “I’m not seeing it here.”
When I moved things and looked, I said, “I’m not seeing it here.”

It got to the point where I’d stopped looking for the item…I’d started to tell myself that I wasn’t seeing it.

A mental conversation of “I’m not seeing it” can be a statement of fact. Repeated over and over, that kind of self-talk can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Without realizing it, I’d started giving my focus a target of “not seeing” instead of “finding.”

What target are you giving your focus today?
