What you focus on expands

Play

The mind is everything. What you think you become.

-Buddha

Have you ever noticed how the poor keep getting poorer, and the rich keep getting richer?

People with negative attitudes keep getting dealt the worst hands in life and complainers never run out of things to complain about.

At the same time, positive people can’t be stopped. They are surrounded by an endless sea of opportunity and success.

The idea that what you focus on expands, was Introduced to me in a book called “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker. The book states that whatever you put your focus into, that is what you will get more of.

The universal law of attraction is that like attracts like.

I didn’t realize the true meaning of this until a friend of mine started complaining about how broke she was.

It was a classic tale of having a lot of debt, tons of bills, and a low paying job.

She was so focused on being broke that she didn’t have the energy or time to pickup a book and learn something new. As a result, she kept getting more of what she was focused on, debt.

Today our society is focused on economic collapse, scarcity, and fear. What will this type of focus bring for us tomorrow?

Awareness brings about change. We can create new possibilities for our lives and our planet by shifting our focus.

    I totally agree! 100%. The more negative we are the more negative we bring. And it’s hard to change from negative to positive – I know, firsthand – and you had great ideas for changing that focus.

    Great post, Leo:)
