I learned this gem from a corporate coach a number of years back. It’s just so true.
What you focus on expands.
If you focus on the negative, you tend to see the negative. If you focus on the positive, you tend to see the positive.
Think about all the things you can focus on:
Our focus can go in so many directions.
Focusing on one thing doesn’t mean the opposite disappears. Focusing on faith doesn’t eliminate doubt, but it might mean you tend to linger there less and your faith grows more.
I know in my own life if I become worried I can almost create a problem to walk into. If I become focused on evil I might forget that Christ is near.
What you are focusing on in your life will tend to expand. And what you’re focusing your family, team or organization on will expand too. Your focus eventually shapes you character, your outlook and the culture in your home, family, organization or department and ultimately in your life.
What will you focus on today? And how has this principle operated in your life?
